Room 14’s ‘Developing Young Workforce Week’ ⭐

Last week, Room 14 took part in the ‘Developing Young Workforce Week’!

As part of this we completed ‘The Choccy Challenge’ and the ‘Green Fest’ challenge. For both of these challenges we had to work in small teams to create a product or service, consider lots of different aspects such as marketing and costs and then present our finished work to the rest of the class.


We all had a lot of fun and the children worked super hard so it was very difficult to choose the winners. You can see our very proud winning teams below. Well done everyone! ⭐

Team Scotland

Today in Room 3 we had the chance to watch a very important football match and celebrated our national teams efforts. We listened to famous songs and created our own flags. It was a very fun day!

Just a little reminder that on Wednesday we are having a dress down day to celebrate a special event in school. Look out for news on what we are celebrating on the blog on Wednesday!

Science Room 8: Exploring Different materials

Room 8 were learning all about Materials and have linked it to the Euros topic we have been doing. We spent time building ‘stadiums’ using materials we’d selected.

We built a roof for each stadium using cardboard, paper, foil, plastic and fabric, then tried water on the materials to investigate which one was the most waterproof.

We’re hoping it will be a fun afternoon for all!

What a week in Room 2!

This week we have been learning about the world of work during our whole school Developing the Young Workforce Week. We loved learning about different jobs that people do and particularly enjoyed sharing what our dream jobs would be when we grow up. From super heroes to architects, there was a very interesting range! Some boys and girls shared theirs at our virtual assembly.

On Friday, we got into the spirit of the Euros, designing our own football strips and making flags to cheer on Scotland.

What a great week boys and girls, well done Room 2!

Room 4


This week was Developing the Young Workforce and we have been learning all about the different jobs in our community. We have also identified our own skills and qualities, and we were able to identify our dream jobs that we want to do when we are older. 

The sunshine allowed us to have our DEAR time outside and play some of our active numeracy games. 

We have been exploring materials in science and we investigated what was the best material to create our football stadium roofs.

Room 11 – Developing the Young Workforce Week 2021

This week, Room 11 took part in ‘Developing the Young Workforce Week’!

As part of this week, we were set the ‘Choccy Challenge’, where we had to design and create a marketing strategy for a brand new chocolate!

We worked in teams and delegated jobs to: create and design what the chocolate looked like, decide on the ingredients, design its wrapper and also design an advertising poster. Once these tasks were completed, the teams had to prepare and then present their marketing campaign to the class!

Take a look at our businesses in action…

Benjamin Dean – Scottish Friendly Book Tour

Rooms 16, 17 and 20 had a lovely morning chatting to the author of Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow Benjamin Dean. 🌈

He told us all about how he became an author, what inspires him and he told us about some of the celebrities he has interviewed at BuzzFeed!

The boys and girls loved asking Benjamin lots of questions about his book, his family and his favourite fortnite dance 🤣

We can’t wait for another fantastic event with the Scottish Book Trust 📚
