P5R and P5A STEM projects

Today we were learning about COP26.  We then created our own 3D Glasgow Landmarks.  The children worked so well and used many skills including team work, sharing resources well, resilience when things went wrong and adapting and changes our designs when needed.  We created the Glasgow Hydro, the Armadillo, the Squinty Bridge and the Finnieston Crane.  They were all fantastic!
