Primary 4 are taking part in Edina Trust’s Bulb Project. We have found out lots about plants and what they need to grow.
We also planted our own daffodil bulbs on 31st October 2019. We monitor the temperature and rainfall as often as we can in order to participate in a Nationwide Project regarding climate change.
Our bulbs are now starting to show some shoots. The tallest one in our class measured 21cm.
The children in P5 have been working hard on Primary Engineer STEM challenge. They learned about electronic aerodynamics, circuits, gears and friction, then used what they had learned to design and build their own powered vehicle. Two teams of children (Mateo de Medina, Joseph Fallon, Imogen Porteus and Lola Punton) took their vehicles to the Renfrewshire celebration event at AFRC, Inchinnan, where they competed with P5 – 7 pupils from across the authority. Both teams demonstrated a great level of understanding and were very supportive of each other and the other participants. The girls were awarded a medal for the ‘Best Themed Vehicle’ and certificates for coming second place in the competition.
Primary 5 and Primary 5/6 have been working on the “Fiver Challenge”. This is an enterprise programme whereby students use £5 pledges to get their business ideas off the ground.
On Friday 15th June, the P5 and P5/6 children will host an afternoon of activities for a small fee. All money raised will go towards school funds for next session.
The following activities will be on offer for children on Friday 15th June:
- Football and Beat the Goalie
