Netball Tournament

Well done to the P6 Team who participated in a Netball Tournament at Bannockburn High tonight. The team did really well displaying the skills they have developed over the past year and super sportsmanship. I am sure Mrs. MacDougall , your former coach, will be pleased to hear you are continuing to play and  proud of what you have  achieved.

Congratulations! Amazing Journeys Competition: 2nd Place

I was really pleased to hear from Helen Gorman that one of the groups from P6 won second place in the ‘Amazing Journeys’ competition the class recently entered.Their project presentation showed “good scientific knowledge, interesting ideas and was clearly presented.”

The Magnetic Levitation Train group recorded their learning journey, using the Book Creator App, as they worked on their science project for Science Week. I am so pleased for them as I know how much research and hard work they put into the design and the building of the train.  Well done!

Their reward, £50 for STEM materials for the school and public recognition as their presentation will be available to view on the STEM network.

Outdoor Learning: Mapping Skills

Primary 6 were outdoors this week and created a map of the school using the orienteering symbols they had learned with Mrs. Collington. The next day they had to use a map of the school to locate hidden letters as part of a treasure trail. Once all letters were found they rearranged them to identify the location of the treasure. All the class succeeded and they were rewarded with their treasure, a chocolate lolly!

The class visited the STEM room and were given the instruction to identify resources to support our topic, The Great Outdoors. Everyone in each group collected one item and returned to the classroom to explain their choice. Next week we shall decide what we need to take as we go on our first nature walk.



The Expressive Arts/The Great Outdoors

This week the class designed and created stained glass windows and a card to celebrate the season of Easter.

Miss White, the music teacher, introduced African instruments to the class. They particularly enjoyed plying the African drums.


Our new topic is The Great Outdoors. Everyone identified in their jotter what they thought ‘Outdoor Learning’ is and we collated the information in a giant mind map.
