The Force Awakens…. For STEM Week!

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!!


Super Hero Sports Day 17th March 2016

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.


Busby STEM Week

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.

The Big Bang!

Pupils in P5,6,7 will be performing the the Scottish Opera’s, “The Big Bang” on Wednesday afternoon at 2.15pm.  Parents of children in these classes are invited along to watch the performance. All the children have been very busy learning the songs and finding out about different forms of energy as part of the Science fortnight.The Big Bang Show! takes performers on a whistle-stop tour of the creation of the universe and explores the wonderful world of ENERGY. Three groups represent the different types of energy – wind, water and sun, fossil fuels and nuclear power. Each led by their own champions, they debate which is best, until Gaia (Mother Earth) points out that unless humans begin to take real reponsibilty for their use of fossil and nuclear powers, the Earth will die. She urges them to learn the lessons of natural powers while there is still time…
