Macmerry Pupils Rock All Over the World!

On Monday 25th all Macmerry pupils put on a fantastic show. Between all classes the pupils visited France, Italy, Spain (P1/2), China (P3/4), India (P5/6), Africa (P2/3) and the Caribbean (P6/7). There was singing, dancing and brilliant acting. At the end the whole school gathered on stage to end with the classic ‘Rockin all over the world’. A well deserved pat on the back to all, the hard work really paid off!

Flour Babies

Primary 5 have been finding out what is needed to care for a baby. They have taken their baby home for two nights now. Each has a name, birth certificate and, most importantly, someone to care for them! They have had loads of support from home, thank you parents, and loads of fun.
They have found lots of supportive friends who have given them a helping hand with baby- sitting.

P5/6 How can we improve on ‘Our Parachute Design’?

To test air resistance P5 / 6 made parachutes. Their flight ranged from 1.09 seconds to 4.62 seconds but they thought they could improve on their results!
Most thought they could improve on the flight times.
They thought the parachute canopy should be made larger. Some thought the strings should be longer. Others thought they should make the weight lighter.
We made new parachutes and flew them on Wednesday afternoon.
Only two did not improve the flight time. The longest flight was 5.81 seconds, followed by two others at 5.06 seconds.
