P6 had a great time whilst P7 were at Loch Insh recording themselves being french weather reporters!
P6/7H have been investing Area. We have been using our Big Maths strategies (grid multiplication) to calculate the area of composite shapes
P6/7H have been investigating nets of 3D shapes. We have found some interesting ways of designing nets to create various shapes.84954D83-4679-4E9A-9A98-86D265EFE876
P6/7H had lots of fun during Science Week. Our task was to work co-operatively to build a model car with a working motor. We discovered along the way that we had to change factors such as weight, size and materials in order to make the car move. Some of us even added a propeller.

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.
