Primary 5 have been learning all about Space this term. As part of this, we looked at the Moon Landing by Apollo 11. They were set the challenge to work in pairs in order to create their own lunar landing module using only the materials provided.
They had to think carefully about their design to make sure their astronauts (big marshmallows!) didn’t fall out of the module when dropped from a height of 30cm. Some managed to drop their module successfully from a height of 2m!!
It was excellent to see such brilliant problem solving and a range of other maths skills from all of the pupils.
We are so proud of our Primary Netball team who were awarded the Sportsmanship Award as part of the Shetland Primary Netball League. The girls have taken part in a number of matches against teams from all over Shetland and have been great representatives of Bell’s Brae.
Here they are at training on Monday accepting their certificates and trophy! 🙂
