Thank you to all the P4-7 pupils who came along to the STEM after school club over the last 6 weeks. I didn’t anticipate how popular the club would be and it was great to see so many pupils enthusiastic and motivated over STEM activities. Lots of problem solving, creative thinking and fun!
Another busy STEM session at our after school club!
We used KAPLA to make all kinds of structures – from a spider to a house! We also worked in small teams to design a bridge to get three figures safely over the water without falling in! We could only use paper, cardboard, sticky tape and string…
STEM club started after school today for P4-7 pupils.
Pupils had to work cooperatively to complete two STEM challenges. Using only the materials provided, they had to build a freestanding bridge which could hold a toy car and the tallest freestanding tower. Lots of fun and creative thinking! Thank you to everyone who came along!
P4/5 have had a busy afternoon continuing with our human body topic.
During PE this afternoon, we calculated our heart rate when resting and compared it to our heart rate after doing physical activity. We then described how our pulse rate changed after exercising, and explained why it had changed.
Then it was back to class where we worked collaboratively to plan, script and perform an advert for leading a healthy lifestyle. Simon Cowell even made an appearance to judge some healthy and unhealthy lifestyles!
P1-7 received a visit from the Scottish SPCA this morning. Each class participated in a different workshop, which involved watching videos and playing games. P4/5 discussed the importance of caring for all animals and also learned lots of interesting facts about different animals… Did you know a sea monkey has three eyes?!
P4/5 had a great morning consolidating our learning about the Jacobites at the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Unfortunately, we weren’t allowed to take pictures when we got inside the Palace… which was a shame because Grant got the chance to dress up as Bonnie Prince Charlie!
While we were there we had the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the Jacobites with a member of the Palace Learning Team, visiting rooms used by Bonnie Prince Charlie. We also got a chance to handle replica Jacobite objects! We all had a fantastic time!
