This week P4 pupils explored where Giant Pandas come from; why they became endangered; what work is being done to improve the Giant Panda population; other animals that live in China and what their skin feels like; the differences and similarities between the Giant Panda and the Red Panda and bamboo facts .
P4 had fun recently at the Generation Science workshop.
Pupils learnt how to programme and debug Lego robots. They had to consider which directions they would have to give the robot to make it move around the course and avoid objects.
All pupils were able to join in and found this a very motivating way to combine maths, science and technologies. Some pupils shared their previous experience with programming and built on this by giving the robots more complicated instructions. We will be building on this experience by continuing learning about coding, algorithms and debugging through the programme Scratch in March.
The whole school enjoyed a very special Scots assembly led by ‘The Sorries’ to mark our annual Scots focus week. Our children from nursery to P7 performed a variety of Scots songs and poems, and we all loved the live music performance from ‘The Sorries’.
P4 and P5/4 also enjoyed a bodrum drum workshop after the assembly was over with Douglas and Martin.
The active schools programme is now open to book for the next term.
Please note that your child who is currently enroled for this term must be renewed for next term in order to continue.
