For their homework, P6P made marble runs using their knowledge from their science project on forces and friction. They had to use friction, gradient and gravitational force to ensure that the marbles rolled through the course. The marble run was made with recyclable materials.
On Tuesday 4 October we displayed them to P6S and P7S. There were bronze, silver and gold prizes awarded following a vote in the following categories: the most creative marble run, the most ambitious marble run and the most imaginative name.
Special thanks to parents for their help with this project. It was really fun to make and exciting to try 🙂
P2: The P2’s were lucky enough to have Cara’s Mum who is a scientist/doctor in to visit them.They also learned about sound waves and made a telephone out of paper cups.As well as these things they learned about camouflage and senses.

We have had a tremendous start to the year with our ‘I Bike’ initiative. The school now has a fantastic bike shelter over the bike racks which is a lovely blue colour; as voted for by our pupils. We have had regular Bike Breakfasts this term for pupils that have walked, cycled or scooted to school and it is great to see so many getting to school in a healthy way each day.
Parents had the opportunity to join us on Friday for our Macmillan Coffee Afternoon. P7 pupils organised this event and raised over £500 for this fantastic cause – well done.
Throughout the school our pupils have been working hard since returning to school. They have engaged with thinking about values – so far we have looked at Friendship and Honesty. Every class is completing work related to these values and this will continue over the year.
In every class pupils have been learning French as part of the 1 + 2 initiative which has been rolled out across Scotland. We have a ‘Word of the Week’ which pupils should know!
