Triple P Parenting Programme

A letter has been sent out today with details of the Triple P Parenting Programme. Please see below for more details:

Triple P Parenting Programme

Coping with children can, at times, be a challenge!

Issues such as tantrums, refusal to follow rules, shouting and screaming can cause stress and at times parents feel nothing they do works!

Help is at hand!

Triple P is highly regarded and successful programme for supporting parents who may be finding their children’s behaviour challenging.

Paul Harrison and Magi McCulloch, Home Link Workers, will be running a Triple P programme starting on Friday 27th October in Renfrew High School for 7 weeks. Sessions will be between 9.30am-11.30am.

Dates for your diary therefore are: Friday 27th October, Friday 3rd November, Friday 10th November, Friday 17th November, Friday 24th November*, Friday 1st December* Friday 8th December

* 30 minute telephone sessions at home

If you would like to be considered for a place in the group could you give Paul or Magi a call on 0141-886-8115 or complete the tear off slip attached to the letter and return to the primary school office, to discuss the next steps.

Yours sincerely,

Fingerprinting – Science Masterclass

Apologies for the delay in getting the photos from last week’s masterclass up on the blog!

Last week in the science masterclass, we learned all about fingerprints. Fingerprints are unique and have been used to identify people for over 100 years. We learned about the 3 basic pattern types: loops, whorls and arches and then tried recording our partner’s fingerprints using the inkpads. It was a lot more difficult to get a clear set of fingerprints that it first appeared!

In the second part of the masterclass, we practised dusting for fingerprints after leaving impressions on a plastic cup. We had to be very careful with the carbon powder and fine-haired brushes so we didn’t deposit too much powder on the fingerprint. Once we had dusted and removed the excess powder, we used a sticky strip to remove the print and stored it on black card for easier identification.

What a lot of fun with fingerprints!

The Bishopton Biscuit Bandit!

In our science masterclass today, we used paper chromatography to work out the identity of the Bishopton Biscuit Bandit! The biscuit tin in the staffroom had been raided (a serious offence!) and a note was left at the scene. 5 different black pens were found at the scene of the crime, each belonging to a different teacher.

We used a science technique called chromatography to split samples of the ink from the 5 pens and then compared it to the ink found on the letter. Each of the inks separated in different ways and by matching the ink profile from the letter to the ink profile from the samples, we were able to deduce that Miss Cameron was the Bishopton Biscuit Bandit!

I can’t wait to see how we will use science to solve another mystery next week……

P4C – Engineer Visit

During technologies time, P4C were lucky enough to have another very special visitor. David came to tell us all about his job as a  building services engineer. He told us all about his job and how it links together with the jobs of other engineers. David has worked on some really exciting projects in the past and we asked him lots of questions all about them. We also learned about some famous Scottish engineer, what an inspiration to us all!

We are learning all about the world of engineering so we can become members of the Institution of Primary Engineers!

Thank you very much to David for coming along to visit us!

Bishopton Primary Drama Society

The Bishopton Primary Drama Society will launch next Monday 2nd October. We had a fantastic response from Primary 4-7 pupils and look forward to seeing everyone who has handed in a form next week! It will be held in Miss Grant’s room at 3.15pm – 4.15pm.

See you all next week!

Design a Flag Challenge – Taylor Wimpey

Taylor Wimpey West Scotland has challenged the pupils of Bishopton Primary school to design a flag that will take pride of place at the entrance to the latest new homes at the development at Dargavel Village, Bishopton.

The winning design will be made into a flag that will fly at the entrance to the new development to welcome visitors.

Design Brief

  • Keep your design big and bold
  • Designs should be simple and not too detailed
  • All design should make use of solid colours
  • Use of full colour is allowed

Remember! The winning flag design will be flown from six metres high so your design must be strong and bold enough to be seen from a distance.

Deadline

Finished, full colour drawings should be handed in to Mr Collins by Wednesday 4th October 2017.

Prizes

The winning design will be used to create a flag for use at Taylor Wimpey’s development in Dargavel Village and the designer will win a £50 cinema voucher. Second prize is a £25 cinema voucher and third prize is a £15 cinema voucher.
