Primary 7 had lots of fun putting their maths skills to the test in an ‘escape room’ activity. They used lots of what we have been learning in maths to crack codes and help save Christmas from being cancelled by computer hackers.
P7 organised a Burns Supper for P5, 6 and 7 pupils. Children decorated the hall, wrote and delivered speeches and toasts, and organised some great entertainment. Thank you to Robbie McCutcheon (our piper), the performers from other classes, and Mrs McClymont who prepared all the food with the help of some primary 7s.
P7 had a fantastic trip to Alloway to the Burns Cottage. They dressed up in 18th Century clothes and saw how Burns lived. Afterwards they had a tour of some of the settings from the poem Tam O’Shanter. Luckily, there were no witches or warlocks to be seen and everyone made it safely over the keystane at the Brig o’ Doon. Thank you very much to the 3 parents who gave up their day to make the trip possible, we are very grateful.
Primary 5/6/7 pupils took part in a Crime Scene Investigation run by Glasgow Science Centre and Historic Scotland. Pupils worked together and used their problem solving and maths skills to solve puzzles, which helped them crack the case of the skeletons found in Stirling Castle. All pupils enjoyed this challenge.
Primary 7 were asked to explain the water cycle. Some children decided to be creative, and use drama to show what they had learned.
The children in Primary 7 talked about what they wanted to know about evaporation and condensation. They then designed their own experiments to find some answers.
All P6 and P7 pupils enjoyed their evening Christmas Party on 19th December. The children enjoyed their games and food kindly cooked by staff.
The children enjoyed a yummy Christmas Dinner on Fri, 13th December. Thank you to the catering staff for making the lunch so delicious.
P5/6 and P7 performed their show ‘Will Santa Get Shot Down?’
Based on a true story and set on Christmas Eve 1940, Geoff and his family are about to spend what should be the most magical night of the year… in a cold, wet air-raid shelter! It showed what life was like during WWII. The children felt it was important to acknowledge the commemorations this year when WWII started 70 years ago as well as marking the end of the war in May 2020.
