P7 Girls Win Young Engineer Competition

Four P7 pupils entered the local heat of the Young Engineers Competition.  Over a few months under the careful guidance of Mrs Calway a group of pupils built an electric car from wood, cardboard, batteries and wire. They then designed a theme for decorating their car and wrote a detailed report on their planning and design.

Lewis, Lucas,  Samantha and Emily went to St Modan’s to test their car against five other teams from neighbouring schools. The cars were tested to see if they could run in a straight line and get up various gradients on a ramp. They were also questioned in depth about their designs.

Samantha and Emily won best design and best car overall! Congratulations on a well deserved win girls and to the boys who also made us proud.

Cardio to Music

On Wednesday morning P5, P6 and P7 children were offered the opportunity to take part in a Cardio to Music exercise class that I ran in school from 8.30 until 9.00. The feedback was very positive and I look forward to seeing how many children will join us this Wednesday. These 2 taster sessions will determine if I shall continue this style of class after the Easter Holidays. Why not try it out?
