Finlay, Shea and Rory have been making such a brilliant effort to bring healthy snacks in for break every single day! They had lots of fun playing with their prize during activity based learning today!
Well done boys!
We had lots of fun celebrating 'Roald Dahl Day' today! We are currently reading George's Marvellous Medicine, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to create some magical medicine of our own! We also participated in a 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' themed experiment where we investigated whether white, milk or dark chocolate would melt first!
Mrs Dean and I have chosen Olivia as our class 'Healthy Snacker' this week! Olivia always enjoys bringing in fruit for snack which is great to see!
During activity based learning, Olivia and her friends enjoyed setting up a pizza herb garden for our classroom!
Well done, Olivia!
Welcome Back Primary 4/5!
The children had a wonderful first week back at school and enjoyed participating in a team building STEAM challenge - the challenge was to build the tallest and strongest tower using only marshmallows and toothpicks!
The children worked as a team to decide on the best shape for their tower, however they soon discovered that the bigger marshmallows were too heavy as the tower got taller, causing the tower to fall over each time. They were able to use their problem solving skills and came to the conclusion that breaking the marshmallows up into smaller, lighter pieces would create a stronger tower.
Well done, Primary 4/5!
