The Lochardil Hockey team played really well at the tournament on Saturday. In the first league they played 4 games and had 3 wins and 1 draw, putting them equal 1st with Dalneigh. Unfortunately Dalneigh went through to the play off for the cup as they had scored 2 more goals than us. In the two play off games we had one win and our only loss, putting us in 5th place out of 15 teams. Mrs Campbell is very proud of the way they played and conducted themselves through out the tournament.
Everyone in P6/7 just want to say a massive thank you to all that contributed to our Coffee Afternoon to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. We were overwhelmed by the number of cakes brought in by pupils and parents – so thank you all very much. We now have to count all the money we raised which will go towards helping people who are fighting cancer.
We made a whopping £822!! It’s fantastic, so well done!
Here are some pictures from the afternoon . . . thank you again,
From all the pupils in P6/7, Mrs Macleod, Mrs Prentice and Miss Shaw.

More fun experiments! This time about air resistance.
Our objective was to design a parachute that would float to the ground the slowest out of all the groups. What wonderful imaginations and what extreme wishful thinking!
Write a sentence about your findings.
Our task tomorrow will be to create a parachute for an egg to land without cracking.
Here are some of our wonderful contraptions in action..
In writing this week we are completing a newspaper article.

Remember to write a sentence on the Blog about our model car experiments.
Your divers were FANTASTIC. What a lot of hard work! Well done everyone. See you all tomorrow.
Today we attempted to make a model car go as far as it could by itself. We used balloons and plastic bands to power it along. It wasn’t as easy as we thought!!!!!!!! Making a car was easy, blowing up the balloon was easy but it wasn’t easy to attach the two together to make the car go. The furthest we got was 84cm. Tomorrow’s attempts can only get better!!
Remember to complete your diver for Thursday.

The school Fete is on Saturday! We need donations for the Tombola and the Baking Stall if you are able. Can’t wait!
Today’s friction experiments went well.
Your question is ……..What is friction?
Use your own words. Don’t quote from a dictionary.
Remember to bring a plastic bottle for tomorrow’s experiment.
