Some of the pupils in P7N and P7S had a great day at the hockey festival in Brae yesterday. They worked really hard and even did some great cheer leading dance moves alongside the pitches!
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.
Today Primary 7S were invited to take part in the Great Scottish Book Quiz at the Anderson High School. They were all very excited to get a sneaky peak inside the new building for the first time! The pupils really enjoyed the quiz which was led by Ms Odie and Athea, Ishaq and Ross were victorious 🙂

Today P7S had a lot of fun writing a dialogue between two characters, which they had created as puppets beforehand! Their task was to write a conversation between their characters and punctuate their speech. They then performed their conversation (using their writing as a script) to the class.
Both P7 classes have spent a morning up at the AHS this week. They all participated in cooperative learning activities with pupils from other Primary schools and they were supported by Secondary 2 AHS pupils. They had the chance to explore the building, meet new people and try out the lunches at the AHS. We have had super feedback from the pupils.
Me and Harris have been working on a wind turbine animation on scratch we will be using this for our wind power presentation in a few weeks time.
On Wednesday 10th May, we had a visit from Morrison’s construction, who are building the new AHS. They provided a really interesting workshop for P7S, with 3 different activities. One involved creating a solid construction using cocktail sticks and midget gems. The second activity was a word search containing different words associated with the construction industry. The third activity involved pupils looking at a diagram of the new AHS and considering which roles each members on the site had. The session ended with a visit from their ‘mascots’!
