Thank you to Mrs Henderson for taking wonderful photographs of the STEM showcase on Friday.
Thank you to all parents and friends who attended this afternoon’s STEM showcase. We hope you enjoyed seeing the displays from each class. It has been a very successful STEM fortnight and the children have enjoyed the ‘Star Wars’ theme.
Thank you to Mrs Henderson for taking photographs today.
We will update the STEM page in due course.
We have updated the Edinburgh Trip page with more photos and information.

Everyone slept well and we are off to the Day 2 activities. Group 1 have made it to the observatory with minimal complaining about the 50 minute walk. We have just climbed the 89 stairs to the telescope (yes we counted!) and are ready to start our workshop.
Mrs Oswald’s group are currently at Camera Obscura.
STEM Week was launched with full force this morning, unveiling this years theme………….Star Wars!
At our whole school assembly, Mrs McLean introduced the theme and the various challenges for the week. The pupils were played a video message from Darth Vader and were surprised by a visit from two of the movies characters.
Excitement reached fever pitch! Our thanks must go to the UKGarrison for supporting our launch.
Keep your eyes peeled on the school website and class blogs for updates across the week.
May the force be with us!!
Following on from a recent homework task, voting is underway to choose our Sporting Super Hero Mascot.
Super Hero Sports Day is on 17th March when pupils can come to school dressed as their favourite Sporting Hero or ready to participate in their favourite sport. P.E. activities will take place throughout the day which will demonstate the Busby Core Values and how they are central to sportsmanshop. As this will also be STEM week we will also be looking the body and how it responds to exercise and the benefits of keeping healthy.
The week beginning 16th March was our annual STEMM week – we added an extra ‘M’ for Medicine! It was a fabulous week with trips to the Snow Zone and the Museum of Rural Life. We showcased our work in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths from the year. We also had parents leading workshops, alongside STEM ambassadors and business partners. The week finished with our STEMM Fayre where parents and families could try out experiments, maths puzzles and engineering problems for themselves. Feedback was highly positive and we hope you learned something new.
On day 2, we had a visit from ‘The Science Boffin’. She developed pupils’ understanding of extreme weather conditions. There were class visits to the library and several classes enjoyed finding out about ‘light graffiti’. Several classes explored the Science behind sport with Lesley, our Active Sports Co-ordinator.
The children enjoyed the first day of the STEM week. Alex the Magician demonstrated the Science behind the magic. P6 pupils used the microscopes to investigate a variety of cells and parents led workshops on DNA and engineering. Everyone is looking forward to day 2!
Next week we are holding our annual STEM week. All the children are looking forward to exploring and experimenting. Our Science Fayre will be on Friday the 28th March from 1.30pm. Please come along and try out some of the workshops for yourself. Click here for further details of next week’s events. We would like to thank the Parent Council for supporting us to put on many of these events.
