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.
This year Fairtrade fortnight takes place from 27th February to 12th March. We have already held our coffee morning, many thanks to those of you who managed along.
The children have also decided to fundraise further. Guess the birthday of the Fairtrade Bear and raffle tickets for a Fairtrade chocolate explosion box will be available from Tuesday 21st February. Tickets will be priced at 50p for each and you can purchase as many as you would like. Many thanks for your continued support.

Primary 5 have been learning about life cycles as part of our science topic. We grew and looked after caterpillars in order for them to transform into butterflies. We kept a weekly log book, detailing the caterpillars development. We really enjoyed this experience.
On Wednesday 7th September all of the children in the school participated in ZOOLAB workshops. We found out a huge amount of information about a wide range of creatures. We all enjoyed seeing the animals and some of felt brave enough to touch or hold them.
