Primary One Social Snack

Primary One continue to enjoy their weekly “social snack”.

We take turns preparing the snack by spreading, grating, mixing, cutting, rolling and slicing different food items.

We like to talk about what we are eating; discussing foods we like and foods we are not so sure about. Eating a snack together encourages us to ‘try’ different foods we maybe haven’t tried before.

Today, we made Valentine’s cakes 🙂

NASA Lunar Lander Challenge

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.

  

Learner Led Event 26.9.19

On Thursday we welcomed families to our Learner Led Event.   Learner Led Events are a chance for your child(ren) to share their learning with you.

Our pupils enjoyed showing their families around the school and sharing their learning with them.

Representatives from various other agencies were available  in our school canteen, these included our Parent Council, the School Nurse and Active Schools.  The School Meal’s Service provided taster school lunches for families to try and this was very popular.

 

Primary 1n Floating and Sinking

We have been learning all about water. Today we were scientists, investigating ‘floating’ and ‘sinking’ through different experiments.

We made predictions on whether or not everyday classroom items would float or sink and tested them in water to see if we were right.

In pairs, we constructed our own tinfoil boats and watched to see if they would float. We even added weight on to the boats to see if they could stand up to the test! We loved being scientists for the morning. 🙂

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! 🙂
