Strictly Come Pinkie 2017

On Wednesday we had this years annual Pinkie Talent Show…. with the them of Strictly Come Pinkie!

It was an entertaining feast for your eyes and ears! We had dancing, singing, comedy and gymnastics on show. In our eyes, everyone was a winner and all were so courageous to perform in front of such a huge audience! Well done everyone. Our fabulous winner this year who took away the glitter trophy was Maddie from P6 who sang ‘The Climb’.

We want to say a big thank you to our panellists who were Mr Scott, Alan Penman, Colin Smith and Anna Potter!

Check out the spectacular event which happened on Wednesday, captured by Mr Smith and his camera.

 

 

P5/6 design and problem solving solutions

P5/6 were great at identifying the technology, design and problem solving skills they put to use in two tasks as part of their learning this week. It all ties in to our John Muir Award too which we are close to completing. The class thought it was a good idea to build bird boxes for around the school grounds so got to work planning, preparing and building unique designs.

Ellis came up with the great suggestion to use grass cuttings from our garden to add to the boxes along with sticks and other things we had gathered around the area. As you can see… they all look great!

The class also designed their own unique water catchers in small groups. They did it quickly and efficiently and we went down to the burn to test them out. Some turned out more successful than others, but we all certainly learnt something through the task. We have collected dirty looking water from the burn in the grounds and the next step is to try and filter it somehow…. I am sure the class are more than capable of coming up with a solution next week!

3D Models in Primary 1C

Over the past two weeks our homework challenge was to make 3D models out of junk from home because we have been learning about different 3D shapes in class.

We used cuboids, cubes, cylinders, cones, spheres and pyramids to make our models. Here are some of our fantastic creations. We hope you enjoy looking at our pictures as much as we enjoyed making our models.
