Primary 7 Assembly

This afternoon Primary 7 did something a little bit different for their assembly / show of learning. They split into four groups to explain about all the  things that they were finding out about in Block 1. Each group split into two teams to make display boards and explain all about Pneumatics, Electricity, Enterprise and John Muir. The school split into their Focus Friday groups and parents joined the teams to visit each of the four workshops.

Toby did a fantastic job of timekeeping to keep us all on track, and everyone seemed to find their way from group to group.

After that, Primary 7 played a short piece from the beginning of their Radio Scotland Junior Historians show, that they made in the autumn. And finally Drew played a ‘Thank you for listening’ film that he had made using his drone.

The Primary 7s really enjoyed doing their assembly like this and said that it was a lot more fun and they enjoyed speaking to smaller groups and doing lots of activities. Ms Scanlan was very proud of all of them and hopes that the audience were too.  Well done P7s!

STEM 3

Today is our final STEM session.

We started off by doing a sort activity about different types of energy.

Then we made a solar and wind farm.

Robert Leask really enjoyed making the power sources with Toby, Roman and Daniel.

Faith said “ It was really good fun to see how many volts our model generated – it was 4 volts!”

Isaac said “I liked fiddling around with all the little pieces. “

Mia especially enjoyed building the wind turbines.
