# Primary 1 Moving Maths

Primary 1 have been learning about length. We have been taking part in lots of practical activities to reinforce the language of length.

# STEM in P7

P7 have been lucky enough to have Emma Chittick in for three sessions delivering STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activities.  During her visits the pupils had the opportunity to program Lego robots and create wind turbines and solar cells.  This related very well with our Climate Change topic and they all became very competitive  to see who could get the biggest output from their design!

# Busy in Primary 1n

Primary 1n have been exploring numbers and patterns through a variety of activities this week.

# STEM Challenge

Today in P7S we took part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) challenge relating to our class novel ‘Holes’ by Louis  Sachar.

In groups, we had to design and create a free standing hammock out of junk and craft materials which would hold a duplo character. We also tested them to failure to see how much weight they would hold – the winner could hold a staggering 750kg!

# P1n Maths Outside

Today we have been learning how to use  – and = signs in written subtraction sums.

It was such a lovely Spring morning, so we did so with chalk outside!

# P7N Pancakes

Yesterday we made pancakes to practice using measuring equipment independently – electronic scales and measuring jugs – and to show we could follow instructions successfully.

We followed a recipe in small groups and Miss Henry didn’t even need to help us! It was great practice for Secondary 1 Home Economics at the Anderson High School, which lots of us are very much looking forward to.

Most importantly they tasted delicious.

# Measuring in P7S

P7S made the most of the fine day this morning – we were out measuring distances within the school grounds, using trundle wheels and metre sticks. We then had to convert our measurements into decimals.

# p4 having fun learning about money!

• This afternoon the P4 pupils were engrossed in their learning when I popped in. Every pupil was engaged in an activity to help them learn more about money.  They were enjoying moving around all the different activities.
