P1/2 – Sea Shells, Sea Shells on the Sea Shore!

P1/2 were busy this afternoon learning all about shells.  They had big questions that they wanted to find the answer to:-

What are the names for some shells?

How are shells made?

How do you hear the sea inside a shell?

Why don’t you ask us at home what the answers are!!

Then we made whelk shells and created lots of different textures using a black fine tip pen using lots of different patterns.  They look fabulous!

Science Fun

We had lots of fun in p5:6 making our own Volcanoes today ! We learned about chemical reactions using acids and alkalines. We also learned how to write a scientific report. Jake taught us all about pyroclastic flow?

 

Parent Volunteers Needed – Can you help?

Are there any keen and willing parents who might be able to take Pr 5-7 pupils for our Cross Country training?  There are 2 main competitions we usually take part in  – MacRobert Cup in October and the South Highland Schools in March. This has traditionally been an after school club but it can meet during school hours if that is more suitable. If you have any further questions or wish to lead/organise the training then please contact the school office. Thank you for your help.

 

The ECO and Rights Respecting Schools (UNIKIDS) pupil groups would love to welcome some parent helpers on to their committees. The groups meet regularly (usually on Wednesdays) . If you are interested please contact the office  with your details and Mrs Murray will get back to you. Thank you for your support with our enhanced curriculum.

Substance Misuse experiments

 

 

 

 

As part of our topic work, we have been carrying out some experiments to find out the effects of smoking and alcohol on living things. This did not prove to be 100% successful but our predictions that the bean soaked in milk would grow best was correct.

We also mixed yeast, sugar and warm water and watched the balloon inflate with the production of CO2 gas as a by product of the fermentation process. We didn’t really like the yeasty smell.

Pupil of the month – Primary 1B

Well done to Eve, who was chosen as pupil of the month for the super listening skills she has already demonstrated in Primary 1. Thank you Eve!

Primary 4/5

We were doing a bit of detective work this week…

Humpty

BUT we’re not going to share this with you adults as you may get some clues about our Escape Room, and we’re not going to give you anything! The children are making up clues to hopefully make your experience a lot of fun. 

Instead, I thought I’d show some pictures of Golden Time and what the children get up to. We have lots of games and activities that the children can choose from.

Remember NOT to come to school on Monday and Tuesday as we have staff training days. I will be attending a BSL (British Sign Language) Course on Monday so I can’t wait to start teaching the children too!
