SAM_0149 SAM_0154 SAM_0155 SAM_0158 SAM_0163 SAM_0164 SAM_0166 SAM_0167 SAM_0168 SAM_0171It’s all happening in P1 this week.  We had a visit from Laura from Zumba Kids to show us some of her fabulous zumba moves, we all really enjoyed it – what a great way to start the day!!!

We also had a visit from some cuddly bears called  Issac and Newton from Generation Science who taught us all about forces.  What a great workshop, we learnt about pushing, pulling, gravity, floating, sinking and friction and had lots of fun along the way.

Thanks to all the parents who handed in junk.  We have been learning about robots and how useful they can be to humans.  We looked at different designs of robots, like the robot vacum cleaner, the amazing Asimo and we had a visit from Robosapien.  We then got down to designing and creating our own robots.

PDSA

The whole school, from Nursery to Primary 7, was very lucky to have Jen from the PDSA visit them today. According to their age group, the children were given a talk with visual aids, powerpoint presentations and video clips about this most interesting charity.

 

Apparently his year, the PDSA will provide more than 2.3 million free treatments to sick and injured pets and more than 420,000 preventive treatments. This is funded entirely by public support so a huge thank you is due to the many donors, customers and volunteers, who ensure that the PDSA is there to provide a healthy life for all our pets.
