The children in Primary 4 had a great afternoon meeting Calum from “Cool Creatures” who introduced them to a range of animals from the classification groups they have been studying. All the children were given the opportunity to handle “Brave” the meerkat, “Max” the tortoise, “Ellie” the armadillo, some millipedes and finally the giant Burmese Python. They also got the chance to see “Jeremiah” the dwarf bullfrog who kept trying to jump across the room looking for dark places to hide. As you can see from the videos everyone had a fantastic time putting their animal science skills to good use working out which animal group each of the visitors belonged to. Well done everyone, our next step will be looking at popular pets from each group with hopefully more visitors to class next term.
Good Vibrations was an interactive show which followed two friends as they discovered how to create their own music.
With the help of the children their journey began by exploring sound; what it is, how it’s produced and how to make different sounds.
They then finished their exploration by looking at how modern technology allows us to vary and make sounds by creating a piece of music with the class.
Children and staff had a great day visiting our Blackwell’s Pop Up Bookshop in the library today. Everyone got their free World Book Day £1 book and a some children bought books for themselves or even their little brothers and sisters. A great start to our World Book Day celebrations. Don’t forget to come to school as your favourite book character on Friday.
Author Lari Don visited P4-7 to talk about her books and writing. The children were involved in developing a trapping story idea and got time to ask fantastic questions with the best being from Caleb in P7
“If you were stuck on a desert island with only enough equipment to write one book what would you write?”
The children were then given the opportunity to purchase one of her books which were signed with a personal message for them.
