We walked on the hard shoulder. The hard shoulder is for cars that have broken down. Oops did you spot that we were walking the wrong way.

P6 STEM Reflections

“I learned that STEM gets your brain working hard so you can complete challenges.” – Cara.

“STEM is science, technology, engineering and maths. My group made an Olympic kite representing Greece.” -Grace.

“Our STEM skills helped us build our kites and understand the importance of having a good, strong structure.” – Abbie.

“I enjoyed the making and flying parts. I learned how to fly a kite.” – Frankie.

“I learned that building suspension is always a good thing, but to not put too much on otherwise it will weigh the kite down. I enjoyed flying the kite in the field and the suspension worked!” ‘Kyle.

“We learned how to catch the wind to make it fly.” – Freya.

“We learned proper teamwork is probably best because someone might be good at maths more than the others, and another person might be more observant of the structure of the Kite.” – Christopher.

 

 

 

Primary 2’s Summer Term

We can’t believe it’s the last term of Primary 2 already!  Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?  We have made a great start to the term and are encouraging each other to be that little bit more independent and to take more responsibility for our learning.

We are hoping that the sun will shine for us as we begin to investigate the effects of weather on daily life.  This, in turn, will give us lots of opportunities to take our learning outdoors and into our new classroom……

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about how we are getting ready for Primary 3!

P6 Living and Growing

During the first part of this term P6 will begin their work on human reproduction.  We use the Channel 4 resource Living and Growing which consists of three programmes called Changes, How Babies Are Made and How Babies Are Born. 1783_4

“Changes” explores the physical and emotional changes that take place at the onset of puberty, and how we feel about ourselves.  It considers some of the changes that are outside our control, and the choices we face in others over which we can have increasing control as we grow up.  If reaffirms that puberty is a normal and natural process [while identifying and naming related parts of the internal and external anatomy.]

“How Babies Are Made” examines the whole process of life cycles and reproduction, rites of passage, friendships and feelings.  It emphasises the importance of a loving relationship between couples and the value of family and relationships within it.

“How Babies Are Born” reviews relationships and feelings and investigates roles and responsibilities.  It focuses on the development of the baby in the womb, the needs of the baby and the mother before the birth, and the inheritance of physical characteristics.
