P1s are transported into the world of light!

The P1s were transported into the magical world of light last week during a visit by Generation Science. They entered the ‘dome’ and learnt about white light and rainbow light, sources of light and the sun and the stars. They saw a disco light that turned around, a mirror ball that reflected the light and played with a torch and shadows. Wow! What a fantastic experience!!

Guess, Check and Improve

ps-picPrimary 3 have been learning about problem solving in maths. Set 1 have been working individually, in pairs and in small groups to solve number and shape problems. At the beginning of the first lesson we all discussed ways to work out the answers to our problems. We realised that sometimes there is no set way to solve the problem and sometimes we had to make an educated guess! After making a guess, we checked our solution to see if it worked and then we made any necessary changes to improve our solution. After working on some number problems we looked at tangrams. This was really fun and we are now using a set of seven shapes to make pictures to use on our maths display in our classroom. Watch this space for some pictures!

On Monday 15th March. P4 will be building shelters. Please remember to wear warm and waterproof clothing. It will be cold (and may be wet).

 We will take pictures so remember to check the website and see us in action!
