This term, Primary Seven have been connecting with electricity! We have been working in partnerships to construct a simple circuit, adding a switch and a buzzer, and then making our own version of a sensor pad.
We also have been learning about Victorian Transport and have discovered the history of the sailing ships which crossed the world in the 1800's to deliver wool to Australia and then to return with expensive cargo of tea. We have been composing diary entries of a sailor working on one of these ships and then have been using ICT to present and display our work in the classroom.
P3 & P4 enjoyed using the beautiful autumn leaves to create their own leaf creatures. I think you will agree they are fantastic.
On Wednesday the 7th October both Mrs Williamson's and Mrs Peacocke's Primary 5 children embarked on an EGYPTIAN ADVENTURE. They all came to school dressed as Egyptians and spent an activity filled day based completely around their World Around Us topic of The Egyptians. Everyone looked spectacular and a big thanks goes to all the parents who helped this day be a great success with supporting us with the excellent costumes and accessories!!

Mrs Sloan's P7 have been busy working on their Plastics, Lowry Paintings and Victorian Transport. They have also been busy working on their portraits comparing their baby pictures and their up to date pictures.
Debbie Dolittle visited the Nursery and brought some of her furry friends for the children to see and learn about. They really enjoyed watching the hedgehog curl up into a ball and also listening to Mr Owl's To-wit Woos! Linney the fox came again and it was great to learn all about her favourite food ... chickens!!
Excitement is building in anticipation of Egyptian Day for Primary 5. The children have been busy making headdresses and jewellery to compliment their outfits for the big day!
Primary 5 have been learning about 3D shapes. They have identified and investigated the face, edge and vertex of each shape. They particularly enjoyed the activity of transforming a 2D shape in their workbooks into a 3D shape!
Many of our classes recently took part in the Virgin Money Giving London Marathon. We registered our school for this event agreeing for everyone to complete the 2.6 mile distance. Along with more than 100,000 other children across the country our pupils proved energetic participants in completing the full distance. Well done to all on this great achievement. Take a look at our photo gallery to see how everyone got on.
Our Nursery children have been having fun getting to know their outdoor and indoor play areas. They have all settled well and are starting to make friends and learn the routines of the Nursery.
The Nursery children enjoyed their Teddy Bear's Picnic on the Muga Pitch on Friday! It was a beautiful sunny day and we saw signs of Autumn all around us!
