On Friday 2nd December, P5/6 and P6 held a science and technology exhibition in the Stoneyhill Gym Hall. The children were tasked with creating a demonstrable science experiment or model to present at the exhibition. This year the variety was truly amazing and the children all worked really hard at not only creating experiments and/or models – but also in learning about the science involved with these. They were able to demonstrate and explain some tricky science to all of the visitors who attended the exhibition – everyone went away with a new piece of knowledge or interesting fact. Well done to all the children in P5/6 and P6 for their hard work in getting ready for the exhibition and a big thank you to those who helped and supported at home. Finally thank you to all of our visitors today – we hope you all enjoyed yourselves, went away learning something new and hopefully it has sparked an interest in science and technology!
Mr Baptie, Miss Carmichael, P5/6 and P6.

What an absolute amazing Pumpkin Parade on Monday. I think this has been the biggest Pumpkin Parade at Stoneyhill and there was an array of imaginative pumpkins on display. It was fantastic to see so many people walking down the street so early and then meeting at the Coop to go the final leg of the journey to the school. Well done to everyone and thank you for your support.
