Buddy Time

Primary 5 love buddy time. In Outdoor Learning Week, we helped our buddies learn about number by creating sets of objects using natural materials in the nature strip. We think our buddies are very clever.

Fossil Dig

At the beginning of our project on Old Edinburgh, we learnt about fossils. We looked at what they are, how they form and what they can tell us about the past. We also took part in a fossil dig outside in the playground. It was a lot of fun and let us practise a range of scientific skills.

Tower building challenge

In the first week of term, Primary 5 were challenged to work in teams to build a tower that was as tall as possible given material constraints. They explored strong shapes, bridge and tower designs and then created their towers. The engineering and teamwork skills were impressive.
