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.
A few days ago we went to the Ten Pieces concert in the City Halls in Glasgow. We heard a lot of new songs. Barney Harwood, Hacker and Dodge from CBBC entertained us.We learned that a very famous composer Beethoven wrote his best song when he was deaf. We loved every minute of it.
We always have fun when we are at Skills Academy. Laura really enjoyed making an app and Rebecca loved cooking food for the P7 friends and families.
We have been learning about different forces e.g magnets, electrostatic force & gravity. We have been doing different experiments to find out more about the forces. We all made big posters and they are amazing.
Cross Country Race
Tess and Brooke took part in the cross country run at Rouken Park. They ran 2 and half kilometres. they were exhausted after the race but enjoyed every minute of it.
The French Night
The school had a family fun French night. We made pancakes and an Eiffel tower made out of marshmallows and spaghetti. It was a very good night.
We are going to learn about Robert Burns (Rabbie Burns).
We will be splitting the class into groups of 4 and give each group a worksheet. Tell the groups what they need to complete their worksheet by working together and by finding information in the museum gallery.
The class will be told that they will need to use information from the Robert Burns timeline in the whispering gallery to complete the Robert Burns timeline on their worksheets.
We are going to Ayrshire because he was born there. He was born on 25th January 1759 and that’s why we celebrate Burns day.
