Taste Testing in P3

Primary 3 have been learning about taste buds. Today we had some different fruits and tried to guess what they were. We also ate different kinds and colours of apple and tried to guess what kind they were too! We enjoyed it so much that we had the leftovers as a mini fruit salad after outdoor PE.

P3 are top of the class!

Primary 3 are always earning class award tokens for being polite and working hard. As a result, they have won class of the week so often that they earned a trip to the Neighbourhood House Café – but not before stopping to play at the park! Despite being a bit cloudy, it stayed lovely and dry. Here are some pictures from our morning out last Friday.

P3 Specsavers Visit

Primary 3 had a fantastic visit from Specsavers today! We learned lots about our eyes, how they work and how to look after them.

We also got some fabulous goody bags! We decided to spend the last 10 minutes of the day testing out our new frisbees.

Lights – Camera – Action!

Primary 3 showed their dramatic flair today by acting out scenes from traditional tales – without making any sound! They rose to the challenge and performed for the rest of the class, who tried to guess what story was being acted out.

P7 STEM Week

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Primary 7 have had such a busy STEM week! It’s been packed. On Monday we did a lego build challenge to build a rocket using exactly 100 pieces. Next we did a build challenge with Coatbridge High to design and build a bridge that could hold as much weight as possible. It had to be a certain height and width and be an attractive design.

We conducted the bottle flip challenge in class. We had to use  a variety of different shapes and sizes of bottles and conduct an experiment to see what shape and size would flip the best.

Then Coatbridge High visited and gave us a maths problem to solve. We had to work out the cost to fill the classroom with malteasers.

We had the Science Centre visit us with great exhibits for us to explore on the human body and they even presenting a disgusting digestion show.

The next day we were visited by ‘The Shape Man’ who showed us how to make a dodecahedron with paper.

It was also Outdoor Classroom Day and we headed to the forest next to complete a technology challenge to build shelters in case it rained. We headed to another forest to complete a Citizen Science tree health survey next.

Finally, a particle physicist visited the class to talk to us about energy sources and answer our many questions.

Outdoor Classroom Day

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Primary 7 took part in the worldwide event Outdoor Classroom Day yesterday. Along with thousands of schools across the globe they spent the day learning outside. First primary 7 visited the forest near the school. They risk assessed the area and did some safety checks before joining teams. In their teams they constructed a shelter, encase it rained. They worked really well as a team and loved their dens so much they decided to have lunch in there. Next they walked to the local park, they were lucky with the weather and enjoyed running around in the sun. Their last task was to conduct an OPAL survey on tree health. They found their second forest base and worked in pairs to measure, categorise and assess the health of the local trees. It was a great day!

Super busy in P2 for STEM week!

P2 started off their week by learning about symmetry in maths. We used numicon, 2D shapes & mirrors to help us learn about this. We then worked in a trio where one group member told the other two to make a shape with their body and the other person had to make a symmetrical movement! Look at our symmetrical dab!

We then worked in groups to plan our minibeast hotel! We each had a role of either leader, writer, architect or speaker. We planned what minibeasts we wanted to attract to our hotel & then the materials we would need to build it. We also had to consider any problems we might come across when we build it and how we would resolve these. Our speaker then presented our idea to the rest of the class for feedback! We then went outside into the playground and forest to collect the materials for our hotels and collected some worms for our wormery in our classroom!

Tomorrow we plan to build our hotels! Stay tuned for photographs of the newest, most luxurious place to stay for Glenboig bugs!!

 

To finish off our very busy day, Miss Scott visited our class to show us her parachute and equipment she uses for skydiving!

Sky Academy

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Primary 7 had an amazing time at the Sky Academy yesterday. They worked together to decide who would be reporters, editors, producers, and camera operators when creating their very own news report. Their news report was on celebrity culture. The children took the lead and organised the entire report from script, costumes to backgrounds and editing. It was a brilliant opportunity and linked well with their topic- The World of World, where the children have been finding out the skills, qualities and qualifications they would need to pursue different career paths.

PC Davie visit!

As part of our People Who Help Us topic PC Davie’s last call out as our Community Officer was to our class today… such a great loss! 🙁

He spoke to the children about his job and the children particularly enjoyed learning about his equipment.  They even had Mrs Macindoe in handcuffs (I promise I have been good!)

Germbusters

In Primary 1 we are learning how to keep ourselves healthy.  We have watched the Germbusters DVD, learned the song and today conducted an experiment.  As germs are invisible we used glitter to represent them … we learnt you need warm water and soap to wash your hands properly.

We also have an experiment in progress … we passed round a slice of bread with dirty and then clean hands. We’ll keep you posted on the results.

Finally, in writing today we wrote instructions on how to wash your hands!

OSMO in action in P1

For winning class of the week for a third time our class reward was an ICT afternoon.  Thank you to some of our P7s who came to show us how it works.  We love the Language games – practising learning initial sounds and then some pupils even managed making words!  The number games were great fun too!
