Summer Fayre

P6 and P5/6 have been working hard on their stalls for the Summer Fayre which is on Thursday! They are so excited to be running their own mini enterprise!

Looking forward to seeing lots of support there on the day for them 😁

Fabulous trip to UHI Stem Hub!

Primary 6 pupils had an amazing day at the UHI Stem Hub today.

This morning they learnt about the properties of light through lots of hands on experiments and discussions!

In the afternoon the children learnt about DNA and how family traits are passed through the generations. They then had the opportunity to extract DNA from a strawberry!

Lots of fabulous team work, behaviour, discussions, learning and an amazing science filled day! Well done P6 and thanks so much to the staff at UHI, Mrs Maclaren for her help and transport, and Steina for her assitance.

P6 Trip to UHI Stem

Primary 6 have been given the fantastic opportunity to visit the UHI Stem Hub on Friday the 1st of March.  During the visit they will be taking part in two different scientific, hands-on experiences, which will be engaging, interesting and most importantly fun!

Please see attached letter which needs to be completed and returned to school by Wednesday the 27th of March.

Apologies for the short notice.  If there are any parents available to assist with the trip it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

STEM Bridge Building with BAM Nuttal

On the 24th of January, Primary 6 pupils were extremely fortunate to have a visit from the civil engineering firm BAM Nuttall who provided all P6 pupils with the opportunity to participate in a bridge building activity!

The bridge measured 15 metres in length and they learnt not only about the structure of bridges but how important it was to work in a team throughout the process.  The P6 pupils were provided with the opporutnituy to ask lots of questions about civil engineering and what key subjects they would need to pursue a career in this line of work!

Thanks so much for this fabulous opportunity….particiularly to Claire Ferguson (Brooke’s mum) who arranged it all for the class.

Miss Coe 🙂
