Today we did a yeast investigation, to see what temperature is the optimum condition for yeast to work. We used cold water, warm water and boiling hot water.
The sugar and the yeast have started to react and the balloons are still getting filled with carbon dioxide. Everyone in the class are excited to see how big the balloons grow over night!
Our Fairtrade Pupil Group members have been working very hard to promote Fairtrade Fortnight which starts on Monday 24 February and finishes on Sunday 8 March 2020.
As preparation for Fairtrade Fortnight the Primary 4 pupil group members conducted a survey to find out which treats children would like to buy at the tuck shop we are planning to run. A subgroup of Primary 5s created posters to advertise the tuck shop around the school. The older members of the pupil group will be giving a speech and showing a PowerPoint to the rest of the school to raise awareness of Fairtrade. The Primary 7 members created a rota for the tuck shop (see below).
We would like to invite children to bring in cash to buy a Fairtrade treat from the tuck shop. We will be offering Geobake chocolate chip cookies, a variety of Divine chocolate bars and Fairtrade Jellybeans. The tuck shop will be running from Monday 2nd March until Friday 6th March. All items are £1.10 so please send your child with the correct amount if possible.
- Monday 2nd March – Primary 1 and Primary 2
- Tuesday 3rd March – Primary 3
- Wednesday 4th March – Primary 4 and Primary 5
- Thursday 5th March – Primary 6
- Friday 6th March – Primary 7

We are challenging ourselves in P7a this morning to choose a famous personality and create a presentation on them in French.
We are including the following information:
Where they live
Likes and dislikes (food / sport / music etc…)
We are looking forward to presenting them to our class in the coming weeks!
This weekend I went to an antique fair and I bought this helmet.
It is a British helmet from the Korean War.
My February weekend was very inactive. This was the case because I was trying to rest up my knee and the weather was pretty poor as well. Of course, the only thing I’ve wanted for the last few months was snow, and it comes the week I’m injured leading me to not be able to go out and play and have fun!
However, some friends made that frown turn upside down, by playing with me on Xbox and coming round to my house for a few laughs!
We were very lucky to be invited to Calderwood Lodge Primary School to learn more about the Holocaust. We met some wonderful people with real life stories of the Kinder Transport and Auschwitz.
It was a very harrowing experience.
