On Tuesday afternoon, some of our P7 pupils had the chance to visit Williamwood to compete in a Cluster P7 Maths Challenge. Working in teams with pupils from Carolside and Netherlee, many tricky problems had to be solved. All pupils had a fantastic time and should be very proud of their performance. Special mention to Caragh, who was part of the winning team!
Yesterday, a selection of our P6 pupils had the opportunity to compete in the annual Williamwood P6 Cluster Maths Challenge. The pupils were put into mixed teams, and worked alongside their peers from Carolside and Netherlee. They were challenged by a variety of different stations, undertook the 12 Card Challenge and completed in the ever-popular Maths relay.
Much fun was had by all, and the pupils maths knowledge was definitely evident. Special congratulations must go to:
Harris, Jennifer and Erin, who finished in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd finishing teams!
Today saw four of our pupils compete in the Cluster K’Nex challenge, taking on teams from the other schools. The pupils had to work effectively as a team to design and build a crane. After much hard work and dextrous manufacture, the team of Jennifer and Erin (P6) triumphed and will now go on to represent the Cluster at the Regional Final.
Well done girls we are extremely proud of you!
“This was our first competition. Our crane was really strong and we worked really well as a team. We ended up winning the event and are really excited to be going to the Regional Challenge!”
Samuel and Cameron also competed. We are very proud of their efforts too, the model looks great!
“We really enjoyed working together. We built a crane with rope and K’Nex. The design was like a digger, with a crane attachment. It was a fantastic afternoon!”
Using skills learned during our Skills Academy, some children from the Second Level Group visited Cartmill Family Centre to help the Nursery children plant a new willow bed.

Parent & Carer Workshop
You are invited to a Williamwood Cluster Parent & Carer Workshop that has been arranged for Tuesday 7th March 2017 from 6.30pm to 7.30pm in Cart Mill Family Centre.
The focus of the workshop is ‘The value of learning through play’ and our Educational Psychologists, Ainsley McGoldrick and Chris Atherton, will share research on why play is so important to children’s learning and on how best to support your child as they grow and develop. There will be time at the end of the session to ask any questions you might have. Tea and coffee will be available on arrival.
Yesterday, we were represented by 8 pupils in the Active Schools Cluster Badminton Championships held at Carolside Primary. All team members played extremely well, and after all of the amazing rallies and games, we finished a very respectable second.
Well done to all the participants, who represented the school fantastically and demonstrated great sportsmanship, whether in victory or defeat.
All P5 pupils participated in the Active 8 Williamwood Cluster Tennis Festival at Clarkston Tennis Club on Wednesday 8th June. The children were divided into groups with peers from Carolside and Netherlee Primary schools and rotated around 13 different activity ‘stations’. The weather was fantastic and all pupils gave very positive feedback about the day. Our thanks go to Active Schools staff and the Sports Leaders from the high school for organising a great event.
