Term 1 in Primary 5B

Primary 5B have enjoyed an excellent first term with Miss McShane and Miss Burns.

Although we have moved around a little due to the ongoing rewiring, we have really settled into the new school year and have already achieved so much.

Our topic this term focused on New Lanark. We learned all about David Dale, the founder of the mills at New Lanark, and Robert Owen, his son-in-law who took over the mill after him and who improved things for the people who lived and worked there. We learned that the machines in New Lanark were powered by the Falls of the Clyde and spent time making our own water wheels as part of a fun STEM challenge! Take a peek below to see one in action!

We also enjoyed spending some time outside taking part in a variety of outdoor learning activities and even getting a sneak peek of our brand new MUGA during our Rights Respecting Try Everything Day!

We can’t wait for next term to continue the learning and fun!

Update from Primary 6

Hello again from Primary 6; we cannot believe that Term 1 has been and gone already!

The class have been working extremely hard looking at our Enterprise topic. Looking at different functions within a business, the class took part in a Dragon’s Den pitch to suggest ideas for our very own pop-up shop after October break…watch this space!

We also explored the role of different scientists and inventors and the impact they have had on the world; from Florence Nightingale and Henry Ford to Steve Jobs.

The class have embraced a range of learning experiences and are looking forward to next term!

Update from P3

Primary 3 have had a very busy term and we cannot believe that it is the October week already!

We have been working hard across all areas of the curriculum and we have loved learning about the Victorians. We have learned about Victorian houses, schools and toys. We loved using role play to create Victorian schools as we took on the role of strict Victorian teachers. We also loved learning about Charles Rennie Mackintosh and creating our own Mackintosh designs. Primary 3 also enjoyed playing traditional Victorian playground games during outdoor learning.

What a great term it has been, keep checking twitter for lots of updates on our learning.

Primary 3 and Miss Paterson.
