Nursery to Primary 3 really enjoyed the dress rehearsal of Primary 4-7 production of Christmas 1914.  Good luck for tomorrow’s performances.

Aviva Community Grant

We have made it to the final (along with 59 other organisations) of the Aviva community grant award. We should find out in the next 51 days if we have been successful. Thanks to everyone for their support. Fingers crossed our Learning bus will be open for business before long!

P2M Music

Primary 2M have had lots of brilliant music sessions with Mrs MacKenzie last term and this term. We have learnt lots of songs about our Transport topic and we all had a go at playing different instruments too!

Today was our final music session for this term, so we all came together to sing the songs we have been learning.

Ask us about one of our favourite songs we’ve learnt. I think some of the mums and dads will recognise this one too. Enjoy!

And a very big thank you to Mrs MacKenzie for giving up her own time for our fun (and noisy!) music sessions.

We’re taking part in OutRight 2018. We are campaigning to push the UK government for action on the toxic air that affects children in the UK. We’ve had our diffusion tube up for the past 4 weeks and it’s now on it’s way to UNICEF. We’ll let you know our results.

P6W Stem Trip – Binary Code and Lego Renewables!

P6W had a fantastic STEM trip to Skills Development Scotland today. We undertook our own animation creations with sound in the morning.  It was amazing to see how creative all the P6 pupils were with this task. The children had to use binary code to make the animation move and have sound. It was very precise work, which required great attention to detail and semi colons!

 

In the afternoon we moved onto looking at renewable energy and then designing our own wind turbines in groups of four.  The team building was superb, as was the Lego engineering!

 

Please have a look at the photographs from the day.  We may be cultivating the engineers of the future!
