At the start of term Room 5 created their very own new year resolution. The main theme which emerged was the desire to get fitter and healthier. As a class we have been discussing how we can do this by changing our diet and exercising more regularly. This wasn’t enough however… Room 5 wanted to make sure this was having an impact. We decided as a class to carry out a fitness test and record our scores. We will repeat this fitness test at the end of term and hopefully our scores increase! Check out some of our photos.
Today in response to Chloe’s letter sent to our local MP’s a site visit was arranged to discuss the road leading to Strathclyde Park. Pupils in Room 12 felt the road was dangerous due to a lack of pavement after the cemetery, during their recent visit to the park and wanted to do something to help.
Miss Law, Chloe, Gemma, Jack and Evan met with local councillors, Marina Lyle & Harry Curran and also Matt Costello – Local Regeneration Manager from North Lanarkshire Council to see what could be done about the situation.
Hopefully there will be news about extending the existing pavement soon.
Primary 6/5 enjoyed making Victorian Cheese twists on Monday morning. They have been learning about the Victorians and how they enjoyed this food as part of ‘Afternoon Tea’. We used this recipe as a focus for our writing lesson afterwards.
