Building our Grand Prix cars

This morning we worked with a partner to design and build our balloon powered cars to take part in the Busby Grand Prix on Wednesday. There were lots of different ideas such as using Lego, bottles and cardboard to use as the body for the car.

Lord Provost Debate

The first half of the p7’s participated in the Lord Provost Debate at the East Renfrewshire council offices. The motion being argued was “Animal testing should be banned”. Both teams made excellent point for each side and the opposers narrowly won by 13 votes to 11. Well done to everyone involved!

Amazing Experiments

This morning we were so lucky to experience all the experiments set up by Mr Hunter. We experienced dry ice, making smoke bubbles, blowing up giant balloons with helium, change in materials…..the list is endless. Have a look at the pictures and see what all went on!

Williamwood Design Challenge

Today was our last lessons taught by Williamwood Design Department. We created designs for a keying and finished our glass designs. 4 lucky pupils will be chosen to go to Williamwood and use the 3d printer to make their key rings become a reality at the end of March.

A Fair Test

On Monday we took part in a Fair Test. A fair test is when you carry out an experiment and you keep all the parts of the test the same apart from one thing. You carry out the test 3 times to see that it wasn’t just by chance that the outcome happened, that the outcome is consist with the change you made.

Here are some pictures of us carrying out the experiment….

World Book Day

We held our own book day activities by taking part in a book quiz! Winners to be announced tomorrow morning…..!!!

Designing our glasses

This morning the girls continued their work with the design department from Williamwood. Today there were designing pro types of glasses which they would like to be made into the real thing. The girls showed off their artistic flair and it will be exciting to see what 4 designs will be chosen to be made at Williamwood alongside other designs from Netherlee and Carolside.


Show Racism the Red Card

This afternoon we were lucky enough to have a visit from the people at Show Racism the red Card. We were learning all about refugees, who they are, what atrocities they face, why they are refugees and how many refugees there are in the world….far too many.

Everyone was inspired by the stories that they heard and I think everyone has come away with a different perspective on refugees and how we all can ensure they are included in society.

Well done Jodie!

Well done Jodie on her fantastic achievement at her dancing. She recently sat her dance exams and she was awarded all these levels! Keep up the great moves Jodie!!!
