STEM: Building Bridges (By Allana and James, P2/3)
P2/3 were challenged to make a bridge to carry a toy train with treasure across a crocodile infested river!
The bridge needed to be long enough wrde enough and strong enough We thought it was great fun!
STEM: Building Bridges (By Abbi, P3A)
P3A were focussing on building a bridge out of reusable materials. We worked in pairs and managed to create and design some wonderful structures which could carry cars across them!
In Primary 3 and Primary 2/3 we have been doing lots of outdoor learning. We have had fun working in pairs drawing maps of the whole school and of the allotment. We have taken part in harvesting and weeding activities, and really enjoyed digging up the potatoes. We even got to take some home. A few weeks ago a bad storm brought a tree down in the staff car park. Mr Miller saved the bark chips for us and we have used these to repair the ground surface in the polytunnel. We have also looked at mini beasts in the log pile and just relaxed reading on the allotment.
P3 Turn Shopkeepers!
This week P3 will be celebrating Scottish Maths Week by focusing on where our money comes from and how we use it to buy new things at the shops. The children have been working hard to count their money and see what they might be able to buy at the shop, If the money was real of course!
We Are Back!
We hope everyone had a great summer and is excited to be back at school! This year the Primary 2/3 teacher will be Ms Pincock and the Primary 3A teacher will be Mr O’Connell.
