Shared Learning With Sandbank Primary

Sandbank Primary was welcomed into our P4 class today to demonstrate their creativity and IT skills and they also showed super presentation ability. They spoke confidently and they had produced magnificent slideshows along with our own Primary 4 Mrs Donald’s Class. Mr Donald from P4/5 Sandbank Primary said ” He was amazed at the feedback given to the pupils as they had a question and answering session after each powerpoint”. Both schools were very well behaved and enjoyed this shared practise and hope to see more in the future, with perhaps a visit to Sandbank.IMG_0025 IMG_0028 IMG_0036 IMG_0033 IMG_0027
