The “Carolside Crew” Smoothie!

Carolside Primary School’s Health and Wellbeing Committee were delighted to receive a visit from local business, Eat Deli. Kathryn from Eat Deli came along to meet the committee and find out all the wonderful things they have being doing to promote healthy eating within Carolside. She was delighted to see that the pupils had lots of knowledge in this area! The committee then took part in a fabulous smoothie and juicing workshop. They learned all about the health benefits of juicing and some of them even tried broccoli juice and beetroot juice! Their favourite had to be the ‘Carolside Crew’ fruit smoothie, which they invented and is now available on the menu in Eat Deli! Make sure you try it!

STEM Fair Gallery

Following on from our recent and very successful STEM Fair, Carolside Primary held a STEM Fair gallery event to promote the learning and teaching which took place during the week of the STEM Fair.

Each stage had the opportunity to create a gallery board to display all the fantastic things they did during the week.  Parents and carers were then invited into school and given a tour of the gallery.


World Book Day Relay

As part of World Book Day, every class took part in a story writing relay.  Stories began in Primary 1 and were passed up the school with each class taking it in turn to write the next part of the story. By the end, every pupil had contributed to one of four fantastic stories.

Not only did this serve as an exciting activity, it is a great way to observe progression in writing as pupils become older and advance through the school.  The hope is that these stories will be collated and turned into a book, both for enjoyment and to use as a learning and teaching tool.

Carolside’s STEM Fair

STEM FAIR 29 February – 4 March

Carolside Primary STEM FAIR will take place from Monday 29 February until Friday 4 March. The pupils and staff are looking forward to taking part in a range of exciting Science, Maths and Technology based activities over the week. We would like to thank those parents and carers who have volunteered to lead or help with a workshop. It is greatly appreciated.  The children particularly enjoy having visitors in their class to share their knowledge and expertise in their field of work. Evaluations will be sent home with the pupils at the end of the STEM Fair. A STEM Gallery from nursery to Primary 7 will be on display on Friday 11 March from 9.30am-2.30pm, excluding playtime (10.40-10.55) and lunchtime (12.35-1.35) in the gym hall. Parents and carers are invited to visit the showcase during the day. They should report to the school office where they can collect their child(ren) from their class(es) to visit the STEM Gallery.
