This week Primary A & B combined together to visit Ardrossan Fire Station. The children were very excited on the way there as we saw boat, buses, trains and even a helicopter! The fire fighters were fantastic and showed us around the engines and let us explore all the equipment. They even let us play with the hoses and spray water everywhere. Harry from Primary A made a rainbow!

This week, Primary B have explored different ways of being active. We had great fun creating artwork for our topic ‘Oor Town’, we used the former explosives factory in Stevenston as an inspiration for making Exploding Balloon pictures. We covered balloons in paint and popped them with a pencil – it got very messy! We also made our own active volcanoes in science and enjoyed watching the lava flow. Harry has made fantastic progress being active on his bike this week and went zooming around the school cycle track!

This week Primary B mixed our paint with different spices to make textured and aromatic paint, our classroom smelt like a spice shop! We used lots of autumn colours and next week when we Access the Community we are going to collect leaves to create a collage.

This week Primary B have been exploring science using bicarbonate of soda and water to make fizzing rocks. We had great fun squirting vinegar on our rocks to turn them into mini volcanoes! #jamesmac

Welcome to Primary B’s first Glow blog! This week in class we have been exploring maths outside by using colour to create an art backdrop to display our work. We had great fun throwing paint soaked tea bags at the wall and really enjoyed choosing our colours!

We’re enjoying exploring the colours!
Having great fun creating our backdrop!
