An Update from Primary 1 & Primary 2/1
Primary 1 and Primary 2/1 have had a very busy term. This term the children have been learning through the context of space. They have been developing lots of skills including; writing, counting, drama, teamwork and taking responsibility for their learning. They have developed an understanding of the solar system and the planets. They are able to name the planets and state different facts about each one. Next we will be learning about travelling in space and what it’s like to be an astronaut in space.

Primary 5F are really enthusiastic about their Interdisciplinary/Science topic Clyde in the Classroom. This topic encourages children to engage with nature and develop a sense of pride in their local environment. Primary 5F are responsible for the care of brown trout within their classroom and work weekly with a Clyde River Foundation Scientist (Katie). The brown trout eggs were delivered on Thursday the 31st of January. We are expected to care for the eggs for six to eight weeks where we will then release them into the River Clyde. The children are responsible for checking on the tank several times a day. They need to check the temperature and ensure that it is suitable for the eggs; too hot and they add iced water bottles or too cold and they would remove any iced water bottles. The children need to check on the eggs and remove any eggs which have died to ensure that they don’t spread any viruses to the remaining eggs. Primary 5F were very keen to participate in a litter pick at Barons Haugh to reduce litter/plastic from entering the River Clyde. The children are thoroughly enjoying caring for the eggs and all of the learning which is taking place within their topic. Look out for our pictures on Twitter.
