Heroes of the Week

Presenting our Responsible Heroes this week. They have all shown that they can take responsibility for their own learning and can be responsible citizens. Well done everyone! Be proud!

 

John Muir – Conserving Day!

We have had another wonderful day outdoors in our local community for the CONSERVE part of our John Muir award. First, we collected litter in the park and field next to our school to conserve the environment there. P5 couldn’t believe it when our litter weighed a stone! We were shocked and will now encourage other not to drop litter. Then, P5 returned to the river. While there, we learned about Native, Non-native and invasive species and their impact on habitat. We also learned how dangerous some plants can be.

P5 want to say a huge thanks to Sam, our ranger, for being so full of knowledge and enthusiasm. It has really helped  to focus on the importance of being kind to our world. P5 showed great respect outdoor and should be so incredibly proud of themselves…they have even managed to convince Miss McKay that the outdoors are not so scary after all.

P5 John Muir Award – Explore

Primary 5 have been very busy over the last week, working towards our John Muir award. On Thursday we went out to explore different areas in our local community with Sam the Ranger. We had a great experience and the weather was perfect.

We learned lots of new information and skills like how to measure a tree and what different types of trees look like. We also learned that litter is a major issue in the field next to our school. At the river, we looked for living creatures using nets. We loved it and we learned how to be really safe.

Our next trip out will be to conserve the park and field area and the area at the river.

Please do let us know what you think of our learning as it will help us to achieve our award.

Thanks for reading,

P5 and Miss McKay

Primary 5 Cooperative Learning

Primary 5 loved making their new Home Teams today. They worked well together to create their Home Team shields and fantastic new Home Team names.

The children had to share a sentence and a hashtag to share their thoughts about their experience. Below are a few examples…

It was good working together. #fun

We worked really well together. #awesome

I think we did a great job but at the start we could think more about how we are using our time. #great

We hope you have enjoyed sharing our learning.  Miss McKay

P7’s Science Workshops!

The P7’s have participating in a variety of science workshops including a flight workshop, a programming workshop, and a light workshop!

Our first workshop was the flight workshop were we learned about lift, thrust, drag and gravity and how it effects flight. We then made paper airplanes and flew them In the room!

Our second workshop was the programming workshop where we used software called Kodu and we created a game in our own set landscape. We controlled it with Xbox controllers which was very helpful!

Our last but not least workshop was the light workshop in which we learned all about prisms and how light is formed. We even drew with DSCF1655ultra violet lights on paper covered with a chemical.  And finally we DSCF1642found out that our eye actually sees upside down. DSCF1623
