The boys and girls had their first taste of technologies, textiles and cooking masterclasses on Friday. The Primary 6/7s are sewing coasters, Primary 4/5 started cooking with making a Greek Salad and Primary 1-3 are learning to work with wood and will be making pencil holders.
The children will rotate each fortnight to experience each masterclass.
Mrs Orr’s class have been working hard in their technology lessons, developing their own brands of chocolate. On Friday, the children used citrus, raisins, marshmallows, strawberries and white chocolate to create some delicious chocolatey treats! We cannot wait to taste these creations!
The children worked in their houses to complete a technologies and art & design challenge. The upper school had to create a 50cm scaffold out of straws and the lower school were set a task to create a spring mural. The boys and girls worked collaboratively to come up with some wonderful designs. Well done!
As part of their topic, Primary 1, 2 and 3 had fun dressing up as scientists and engineers and took a walk around the museum looking at different modes of transport. The children had to decide if they were horse, wind, electric or steam powered. They were allowed to sit in an old-fashioned tram and take a trip on the old style subway.
To top it all off, they had the chance to design their own mode of transport!
The boys and girls were challenged to build a sleigh for Santa out of junk modelling. Each house had 2 bags of recycled objects and a box of crafts to make the most creative vehicle for Santa to travel in.
The children worked collaboratively and created four absolutely stunning sleighs. The winning house was Libo with 46 points out of a possible 50 for their ‘Rudolph Roller’ design (and a big well done to Ollie and Zoe who played Donner and Blitzen sprinkling reindeer dust en route). Well done to everybody involved!
In technologies, P4/5 have been learning about the village of Uplawmoor. We enjoyed creating Lego models of houses and landmarks such as the hotel, church and school. We learned about all of the important places in Uplawmoor and built a mini version of the village out of Lego.

Josh and Lauren worked hard to win each of our class heats to go forward to the final of the Knex Challenge at Eastwood High School. They had to work together to come up with a design for a truck with at least 3 wheels to carry various fruit.
Josh and Lauren came 4th out of 13 teams with a score of 19 out of a possible 21 points.
Well done to both of you. You did your school proud!
Wow! What a day! The children of P4-7 have been busy today making props with Zoe for our summer show. Without giving too much away, we have been cutting out and decorating giant gingerbread men, making bombs and sweeties and creating amazing scenery for our show.
The boys and girls had eggcellent fun yesterday during our Easter afternoon. Children had the opportunity to visit each class to see their egg creations and read all about their eggy adventures.
The children showed great imagination and creativity and parents, staff and pupils had fun reading stories such as, The Egg Factor, Eggy and Furious, The Talented Egg, Novak Eggovic goes to the Jungle and Eggy Weggy on a Beachy Weachy. The children participated in a treasure hunt in their houses and were rewarded with a creme egg!
