Jessica, Lauren, Emma, Ben, Rebekkah and Jonathan have been knitting scarves at the after school Knitting Club. Mrs Williams and her mother, Mrs Davidson, have been teaching the children knitting skills and over the weeks these colourful scarves are growing fast in length! I think that with this recent blast of cold and wet weather, these scarves be well used!

Last week Science Club members had to find out which white powder had been “accidentally” mixed with the powdered milk. First members had a good look at all the white powders and recorded what they looked/felt like. The next step was to add water to each powder and note the reaction. Next, vinegar was added to the powder and any reaction was noted.
Members then tested the contaminated mixture with both vinegar and water to look for similarities. As health salts fizzed up with both water and vinegar, while chalk only fizzed up with the vinegar, it was concluded that it was the health salts that had been mixed with the milk powder. Well done Science Club!! You are great detectives.

13 pupils from P5 P6 & P7 enjoyed their first lesson in our Wednesday Archery Club. Jimmy taught the children the basics in using a bow and arrow and took them through the important safety rules involved with this sport. Within a short space of time the children were making good progress. Under Jimmy’s excellent tuition, many of the pupils were managing to shoot their arrows a further distance, and a few even managed to hit the target!
