Field Day is the first chance of the academic year for the whole Prep School to swap the classroom for a variety different learning settings. Each year group heads out of school for a day of action packed learning. The exception to this is T Form, who have the unique challenge of setting up and running their very own Macmillan Coffee Afternoon.
Unfortunately, Friday was an extremely wet day, so for those trips based largely outside, our pupils had to dodge the rain showers and puddles!
M and P Forms headed out to Murrayfield for a day at Edinburgh Zoo. They enjoyed meeting the wide variety of animals and particularly liked seeing the penguins having fun in the wet conditions.
S Form wrapped up warm for their boat ride to Inchcolm Island where they saw the famous 12th century Abbey and the World War 2 bunkers. The seals decided they'd rather be out of the water than in, so there were plenty of up close sightings on the journey to and from the island.
T Form stayed in school for one of the biggest days of their year. They completed still life drawings for their auction, set up the raffle and prepared the assembly hall for the arrival of their guests. Tea and coffee flowed and the cakes, baked by pupils, parents and staff, went down a storm.
1st Form hopped on coaches and travelled to the fantastic Glasgow Science Centre where they saw a live heart dissection and an inspiring 'Wonders of the Night Sky' presentation in the Planetarium.
2nd Form went on a tour of Edinburgh and saw, among other places, the resting place of Greyfriars Bobby. They also enjoyed the underground tour of Mary King's Close
A fabulous experience was had by all!
