Friendship Friday skills group

We had lots of fun at the baking skills group this week with Miss Campbell. The Kelpies group made fairy cakes and even helped with the washing up afterwards! Great job everyone!

 

Fun with Fractions

P5 have been really busy this week learning about fractions. We have been learning to identify fractions.  We have also been learning new terms like numerator, denominator, proper and improper fractions.  Some of us have even started working out how to simplify fractions and find their equivalent form.  Great work this week P5!

P5 Christmas Party

On Friday P5s got all dressed up for their Christmas party. We played games, took part in some Scottish dancing and had some delicious snacks made by Mrs Murdoch.  Thank you to all the pupils in P5 for their amazing manners and sportsmanship.  Mrs Fraser, Miss Cruickshank-Ryan and myself had a fantastic time celebrating the festive season with you.  We hope you all had a great time too- here are some photos of the super afternoon!

Coding with the SSPCA

Primary 5 had great fun learning to create robotic owls with Vanessa from the SSPCA yesterday. We found out lots of interesting facts about owls (did you know their ears aren’t on the top of their head?) and got to ask Vanessa about her experiences with the SSPCA.

We worked as a team to construct Oscar the owl and then we used I pads to code and instruct the owl to speak, light up and move. It was great fun and very interesting!

Meccano team work

Primary 5 had great fun yesterday afternoon with a visitor from the S.T.E.M hub. We were focussing on engineering and teamwork skills with the use of a giant meccano set.  We first had to design and construct a tower.  After that we had to create a wheelbarrow to hold a teddy.  We have this set on loan from the STEM hub for a month so look out for more design challenges hitting our blog soon!

Delightful designs

Primary 5 have been busy designing their own pumpkins in preparation for Halloween. They then brought their designs to life in the form of a spooky Halloween satsuma.  Here are some photos.  Happy Halloween everyone!

Sporting stars in P5

Congratulations to the Primary 5 pupils that completed the 5k run on Sunday- an amazing effort! A big congratulations to our very own rugby star that got player of the match this weekend.

 

P.E roundup

Primary 5 have been working hard this term to improve their skills in unihoc.  We have been learning how to hold a unihoc stick, travel, pass and shoot.  After weeks of practice we have been able to try team matches.  Miss Campbell was very impressed with our teamwork and communication skills throughout the games.  Great job P5!
