Before half-term, Primary 5 would have been spending three days at Lendrick Muir camp in Kinross. To make sure that we were not missing out on any fun whilst we all learn from home, the girls took part in a Virtual Camp!
On Wednesday, we started by creating a 'time capsule’. We decorated our own boxes and filled them with letters, pictures, items and any other item that we want to remember during our time in lockdown.
Next, we all took a virtual trip to the Wallace Monument, where we used our research skills to find out more about William Wallace, who we have been studying as part of our Scottish History topic. In the afternoon, the girls had some 'dorm time', with some making their own tents and dens in their houses.
Thursday morning saw some tired faces of the girls who chose to sleep in these tents overnight! We then went on a virtual trip to Dollar Glen, using drone footage to experience the beautiful walk up to Castle Campbell. We took in all the sights and sounds, thinking about what it would be like to walk through the Glen on a warm day.
Then it was time to visit Stirling Castle, where we learned about some of the gruesome jobs that children had to do hundreds of years ago. We took a tour through the castle, learning about its rich history. We finished the day with a thankfulness activity, provided to us by Lendrick Muir camp. We were reminded that even in these troubled times, we have so much to be thankful for.
A great time was had by all!
