British Science Week

@STEM_Ren

We have had a fantastic week for British Science Week!

Primary 3 have been building their own musical instruments, learning about sound and vibrations.

Primary 1 have been reading The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark and teamed up with their Primary 7 buddies to investigate what owls eat. They dissected owl pellets and found lots of interesting bones!

Primary 2 were learning about electricity during freeflow and tried to make the bulb glow. They also learned about palm oil as part of their rainforest topic and how palm oil is used in lots of things at home. On Thursday, they did an experiment to see how germs spread and how we can get rid of them.
We had a fantastic week being scientists!

We hope you had a fantastic week discovering, investigating and enquiring!

British Science Week

This week is British Science Week. We will be completing exciting science activities in class. Keep an eye out towards the end of the week to find out what we have been up to!

In the meantime, here are some fun science activities to do at home! See if you can figure out the science behind it. Please tag @STEM_Ren if you post anything on twitter.

Walk to School Week 2018

You all may have had a visit from your Travel Champions last week to let you know about Walk to School week this week. The Travel Champions will visit you every day to count how many pupils in each class walked to school. Your special item will still be worn on Wednesday and this will be the funkiest shoes you have to celebrate the benefits that walking to school gives us. Remember cycling, scooting and park and stride are also included.

There will be an overall winner everyday and a winner from the full week.

Enjoy walking to school in the gorgeous weather we have been having!

Walk to School competition winner

Last week we ran a competition to find a best poster to promote walking to school.

We had a hard time choosing as they were all fantastic! However we narrowed it down to one.

The winner is Jessica in P3S, who has won her class 5 minutes active play in the playground.

The poster will be displayed on the Travel Champions wall outside P6G for everyone to see.

Well done!

We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday with your inside out clothing!

Walk to School (13/9/17)

This year the Walk to School is back! Every two weeks, the Travel Champions will choose an item to wear to school that will count towards a prize if their class wins the Walk to School. To win, a class must have the most amount of children that walked, scooted, cycled or parked and rode that day.

This Wednesday’s theme is:

An inside out item.

Pupils can choose one item of clothing to wear to school inside out. Feel free to change later!

We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday!

Intergenerational Quiz 2017

This year, Primary 6 will be taking part in the intergenerational quiz, which is a Renfrewshire wide quiz aimed at challenging negative stereotypes surrounding age. Primary 6 pupils will be teamed up with an older generation to learn about different categories such as music, film and tv, foreign languages and Scottish history in order to compete in a final quiz in November.

We are looking for willing grandparents of the children of this school to help us take part. You do not have to have a grandchild in Primary 6 and you would be required for six afternoon sessions.

If you are able to take part could you please send a letter in with your child to be given to Miss Grant or Miss Altman in Primary 6.

It is sure to be a great learning experience and lots of fun!

Thank You

Miss Grant

Walk to School

The walk to school will be running again this year with our brand new travel champions.

Like last year, we will be running our poster competition to promote walking to school. All designs should be on A4 and submitted by next Friday (8th September) to Miss Grant’s room. Make them bright and inspiring!

We look forward to receiving your entires.

End of the Year

I cannot believe we are at the end of the year already. Please remember to bring in a plastic bag for work if you did not today. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents that have helped with trips etc over this session. Remember school finishes at 1pm tomorrow. You may bring in a game or a toy as long as it is not sentimental or expensive. I wish you good luck in Primary 7 P6 and it has been a pleasure to teach you this year! Enjoy your summer holidays!
