In our P1/2 STEM masterclass this week we began to learn about programming. We loved using our Beebots and took turns programming them to travel to our friends! Next week we will be learning how to instruct them to turn left and right.
Masterclasses have started! But this year we are doing them in class groups.
For the next 3 weeks P6 will be using their STEM skills to create a stop motion animation! This week they made a start on constructing their plasticine characters and began to discuss plots for their animation film!
We yet again had lots of pupils find great success in the chess tournaments continuing under COVID 19.
Thanks as always to our team and great volunteer chess organisers.
We started the New Year with a bang and launched our new STEM masterclasses. The children from P3 to P7 enjoyed a wide choice of STEM activities including coding, pixel art, robotics, puppet making, cooking, baking, clay model making, ICT games, Stop Motion Animation, weaving, Hammabead design, Garage Band and chess. We were fortunate to be joined by our STEM ambassador Colin and supporters from our local building Scottish Building society, as well as school volunteers and Allessandra our newest JET student.
Thanks to everyone for making week one a big success!
Master classes have been very successful and we now run a wide variety of classes. We now offer coding which is run by Mr Kerr our STEM ambassador. Robotics which is run by Mr Bennett and Tanya from Roboticals. Our Primary 7’s have also been running classes. They do ICT maths games and pixel art. Chess continues to be popular and is run by Mr Hynd and Mr Good.
