P6 STEM Building Challenge

This afternoon both primary 6 classes began designing and building their own earthquake proof buildings as part of our natural disasters topic. We had great fun and showed excellent cooperative and design skills. We ran out of time so part 2 will happen tomorrow.

We’ve attached some photos of our works in progress and we’ll be sure to add some photos once our buildings are complete. We plan to test how well they’d withstand an earthquake using a shake table.

The Artists of P5a

The artists of P5a have been enjoying themselves creating pictures of endangered animals for our topic display. We also thought we’d share a photo of our blossom tree which we created together before the Easter holiday when we were beginning to spot signs of spring. Now that the spring weather is here it feels like the right time to share it with you all.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Primary 5 Learning

Primary 5 have had a busy week!

In maths we continued our learning about decimals. We are becoming much more confident with this challenging topic! On Thursday we continued our work on money and this week focused on ordering money.

In literacy we began to learn how to take notes and took notes on an endangered animal of our choice. We then wrote a fact file about the endangered animal.

In Science we continued our learning about sound and we investigated how to make a high or low sound (pitch) on different musical instruments.

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces on Monday morning!
