P5/6A and P5 have been busy designing a safe method of transport for a very important egg whose mission would be to fly over and active volcano.
Their mode of transport will be tested by Mr Brown or Mrs Abraham dropping Eggy in his carriage from the top of a ladder.
Each design will be scored on safety, design, VIP decoration and comfort.
Starting to create our designs below.
Stay tuned for the results to follow later….will Eggy be able to complete his mission….

We know everyone enjoyed sharing in our learning experience today. We loved Science Week and our Showcase.
Mrs. Kellas would like to take this opportunity to thank Alistair Grant, a Science lecturer at Edinburgh University for his continued support. His guidance and practical skills have enabled numerous school projects to be undertaken over the past 3 years.
Finally I would like to thank all the staff and the children for their enthusiasm and commitment throughout Science Week. It was a pleasure to see pupils and family members engaged in educational discussion and having fun.
P5 & P5/6A went to visit Scotland Street Museum yesterday.
They toured the Museum, played with Victorian toys and had a fantastic drama session with a Victorian teacher.
A huge thank you to those parents who came along to help.
More program success in Lego. Club today.
See our video below.
P5/6 made electrical circuits using batteries, light bulbs, switches and buzzers.
We can also identify the universal symbols for these elements.
