Primary 7 enjoyed a visit from Mairi and Emma from the STEM department at the UHI. This supported previous learning from the Renewable Energy topic from last term. The pupils built a model wind turbine, and then investigated the difference that the angle and number of blades made to electricity production. They also looked at how the strength of the wind changed electricity production. Lots of science in action and thoroughly engaged learners!
P3/4 and P7 teamed up on a wordy scavenger hunt around the playground, before sorting the words into the correct categories.
As part of their ‘World of Work’ topic, Primary 7 welcomed Mr Fraser of Fraser Opticals to the class today. They enjoyed hearing about his path through school, university and then into the work place. He demonstrated one of the gadgets available for looking at eyes and answered lots of questions from the class too.
Week commencing Monday 12th February will be a week of waste free packed lunches. The Eco group have instigated this challenge to the whole school to heighten the awareness of food and plastic waste that effects our environment and planet as a whole. We hope that you will support us through the week ahead by trying to have a waste free lunch.
