P6d Numeracy

Primary 6d have been working hard in Numeracy, learning about the various properties of triangles, converting common measurements and function machines. Below, you can see them creating triangle poster fact files using straws, making potions by actively measuring different liquids and  focusing on the operation aspect of function machines.

P5 Masterclasses

P5 had a great day taking part in 3 different masterclasses.

Chromebooks and VRs with Mrs Cumming – Pupils researched some of the world’s most famous volcanoes then travelled to various volcanoes around the world using the VR headsets.

 

Cooking with Mrs Kennedy – Primary 5 prepared a summer couscous salad as part of our health and wellbeing topic.  Primary 5 are always happy to make good food  choices and understand the benefits of vegetables in their diet.  We look forward to summer barbecues  with our families and the opportunity to showcase these new cooking skills.

K’nex with Mr McCrea – Pupils took part in a K’nex challenge to build a free-standing tower, 30 cm – 60 cm tall, with a revolving restaurant at the top. The children demonstrated some fantastic teamwork and problem-solving skills, coming up with a great variety of designs to meet the specifications.

 

Art Lesson with Miss McCann – Primary 5 used contrasting colours to create their flower pictures.

 

 

P5a Healthy Snack

As part of our Health and Wellbeing studies, we have been looking at the Healthy Eating Plate and discussing ways in which we can keep our body healthy.

We decided as a whole class to create our own healthy snack recipe using ingredients from the Healthy Eating Plate. We used fresh fruit, honey, natural yoghurt and some ice to make a delicious and nutritious Fruit Slushie!
