P4C Trip To City Chambers

Congratulations to one of our P4C pupils for winning the Lord and Lady Provost’s Christmas card competition! On Tuesday, the class were invited to the City Chambers for a special reception and short tour. The staff there kindly provided us with tasty refreshments before Ruby was presented with her winning design. Everyone in the class was also treated to free tickets for them and their family to the ‘Bairns Afore’ show on Hogmanay!

We were shown some very important items kept in the City Chambers, and we learned a lot about what the Lord Provost does and where he works. Some of us were definitely inspired to be Lord Provost one day!


Properties Of 3D Shapes

All the students in Primary 4 have been studying 2D and 3D shapes. They have been learning about edges, faces and vertices. They had lots of fun creating 3D shapes, using spaghetti and marshmallows.

Code Club !

Over the past 6 weeks, some of our P4 children have been attending our first ever Code Club. With help from some Lloyds Banking volunteers, they’ve been making animations, programming some talking robots and even creating their own games!

Ryan: “It’s fun because you can make games, things move around the screen and things can make sounds!”

Aiden: “I’ve been learning how to use coding and Scratch to make games. I’ve also been doing it in my house!”


Plants!

Primary 4 have been busy investigating plants. We discovered lots of plants growing around our school and we identified what they need to grow. We have even designed our own experiments! We have been learning about variables and how to set up a ‘fair experiment’. We have planted our own seeds and we are going to see what happens when we change the amount of water or light they get. We wonder which seeds will grow ? We will update you soon 😊
