P3 Go All Egyptian

Primary three have been busy over the past weeks learning about the ancient Egyptians. They made death masks that look great (if a bit scary!), learning why the ancient Egyptians wore death masks and why they mummified bodies.
They also had a visit from a representative for the National Youth Choir of Scotland to get a taster of what they do in classes. A letter has been sent home should your child wish to join.

P4 Build African Homes

As part of their Africa topic, primary 4 have been designing and making African houses. They could make either a traditional house or a modern design. Some chose to work with partners, others on their own. Their designs are all so different, they have been very creative in their ideas. Well done Primary 4, they look great!

A Busy Start to 2016 in Primary 4

Primary 4 have had a busy start to the new term in 2016. They have been working with money. They started off by making money dice. After throwing a dice they had to count out the value of the money. Once they were confident with counting out one amount they threw 2 dice and had to count out two amounts and add them together.

P4 Visit the Museum of Flight

Primary 4 enjoyed a morning of fun at the National Museum of Flight. They enjoyed looking around concorde and comparing it to planes that they have been on. After a discussions about the forces involved in flying, they made paper planes and had a competition to see whose could fly the furthest. Well done Findlay, you were the champion! After lunch they enjoyed time in the interactive area with lots of activities to test their reaction speed and observational skills.

P4 Helicopters

As part of their science and technology project the primary 4 children have been making helicopter blades, they cut out templates and folded them to make the blades. They made a large one and a smaller one. They were checking to see which one hit the ground first. Some children also noticed that some spun clockwise and others anticlockwise. They had to figure out why this was.
They are looking forward to their visit to the Museum of Flight to find out more!

Primary 4 Take Off!

Primary 4 have been busy learning about flight. They have been finding out why wings are shaped in an aerofoil to help them stay up in the air. They had a go at making planes with aerofoil shaped wings and tried to fly them. Well done P4! It was quite tricky work but you did very well!

A Busy Week in Primary 4

Primary 4 have had a busy week learning how to multiply using arrays and repeated addition. They worked in groups and individually, using practical materials. They linked this learning to using the times table grid so they could see the connections. They also enjoyed a taster session in karate. Information has been sent home if you would like your child to join a club.

Primary 5 had a homework task to design a rocket and present their design to the class. The children each presented their rocket designs and explained how they were made. The designs look great and are now hanging in the classroom.

Well Done Primary 5!
