Primary 7 were very fortunate to be visited by a local author called SF Mazhar. She is the author of the Power of Four series and The Elementals. She gave us an insight on how she was inspired through her Fan Fiction writing online.
Primary 7a were lucky to have a writing workshop with her after break. We learnt how to structure a ‘Plot Arch’ and the beauty of ‘Show verus Tell’ in our writing.
‘We look forward to using this in our writing!’ Sophia.
To finish off Science week, we had a Science Fair. Primary 6 were invited to our classrooms and they had the opportunity to interact with scientists from P7. Please have a look at our Twitter posts.
One of the experiments involved going outdoors, where we put Mentos into a bottle of fizzy juice to see it’s reaction. We loved seeing the way the juice squirted out the bottle and shot straight up towards the sky.
Preparations are underway to dress the Beat Box outside our school in a spring theme.
Euan worked closely with Mrs Hussain to create a centre piece for our Beat the Street display.
The biggest challenge for us, is that the display needs to be waterproof to withstand the weather we have been exposed to recently. So we decided to use recycled plastic bottles to create flowers and insects.
