P2’s Visit from Marty the Robot

Today Primary 2 had an exciting visit from Tanya from Robotical, the company who make Marty the Robot.  We learned a little bit about the different robots we might encounter in our lives and then we also learned how robots are programmed. We even got a chance to try programming each other!

While we were practising programming a classmate, Tanya led small group workshops. In the workshops we all got a chance to learn how to programme Marty and even to make him dance.

We all hope that Marty visits us again soon.  Huge thanks to Tanya for a fantastic workshop!

 

P2a Can Do the Robot Dance

This morning as part of our ‘Wake Up Shake Up’ Primary 2a started to learn how to dance the Learning Station’s Dancing Robots dance.  Our current topic is robots and we love to dance so this was a perfect way to wake up our bodies and brains!

Both Primary 2 classes are collecting small and medium sized boxes so that we can build a giant robot. We would appreciate any donations of boxes next week. Many thanks in advance for your support!

Primary 2 Beebots

Primary 2 have been using the Beebots to learn all about  computer programming. We have been learning  what algorithms are  and creating and debugging  simple programs.  We have programed the Beebots to enter a simple maze and to follow a track we drew with chalk. We have also been programing  the beebots to create works of art.

Fantastic Scottish Creative Writing!

Max and Euan from Primary 2 visited the Senior Management Team office this morning to share their fantastic written work all about Haggis’. Mrs Kelly was most impressed with Euan’s description of a Country Haggis and where to find them, she particularly liked the idea of a haggis inviting a visitor in for some shortbread.

Mr Burgess thought Max’s description of his haggis was full of detail and could almost imagine the fluffy colourful haggis running around the hills and glens of Scotland! Great work laddies!
