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…
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!
This week P4/5 have been looking at bones as part of our human body topic. Today we made an x-ray of the bones in our hand using cotton buds and icing sugar. It was very messy!
On Friday P4/5 shared all the interesting facts that they learned in their Jacobite topic. Thanks to everyone who came along to the assembly!
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!
P4/5 and P6/7 are looking forward to sharing their drumming skills with their parents on Tuesday. Below is a sample of what they have been learning.
