# Make Â£5 Grow

The Primary 7s worked really hard during the last two terms on the Virgin Make Â£5 Grow enterprise project. They raised money for their school trip and staycation and will be selling more at a future date. Altogether so far, they have raised a fantastic Â£ 543.90!

We posted the amount on our FB page a few weeks ago.

# Scottish Maths Challenge

In September three Â boys took part in the Scottish Maths Challenge, where people take part all around Scotland. It was very challenging for the three boys involved but they all really enjoyed it. We sent the results in and are waiting for the results and scores to come back. All the challenges were challenging.

# Terrific Scientific Trees Investigation

Today we took part in our fourth Terrific Scientific investigation. This time we are investigating trees. We have to survey the ðŸŒ³ in the school grounds and record how tall they are and the circumference of their trunks. We will then use a carbon calculator to work out how much carbon each tree is storing. We will then calculate the total amount of carbon stored by all the trees in the school and learn about why trees storing carbon is important and where the carbon comes from.

This time we are sending our results to Leeds University and they will analyse the results from all the schools in the U.K.

If you want to see our results so far, you can look online at the Terrific Scientific website. There are lots of other activities on there too that children can do at home. We have also tried the ‘bouncing eggs’, which was a lot of fun.

# Numeracy Snowflakes

Today we have been having fun making and folding 2D shapes to create beautiful hexagonal snowflakes.
