Don’t Lose Your Lunchbox!

This picture is of a small section of our football playground at the end of a lunchtime.

We of course always try to reunite lunchboxes, tiffin tins and tupperwares with their owners at the time but as you can see from the picture the amount of lost items, and number lacking identifying features, can make be hard.

Sadly our lost property turns into a lunchbox mountain over the course of a term.

So if you can in any way mark your boxes with a name that would be very helpful. Either written in permament marker on the box, written on masking tape on the box or a proper name sticker. Even just a big sticker with a picture on that help’s the child identify their box and be a bit keener to care for it can help.

If you have lost a lunchbox or any property remember to check lost property.

P4a Liking Vikings

P4a have been learning about the Vikings. They planned their topic, deciding what they wanted to investigate and how they wanted to learn. They created a Viking display for the classroom and made their own jewellery based on Viking designs but with their own modern twist. They also designed Viking armour and weapons for a re-enactment of the first UK Viking raid at Lindisfarne.

They have gained an understanding of the Viking gods and goddesses through reading tasks and making their own Top Trump game cards.

A connection to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child was made by comparing it to the life of the Viking slaves.  The pupils all agree the slaves rights were not being respected and taken away from them.

Maths Enrichment Opportunities From Edinburgh University

Edinburgh University are offering 2 opportunities to stretch those number brains

Here it the information they have sent us.

Online Maths Circle- Saturday 26th March 2022

An online Maths Circles is one hour long events for 7-14 years old and their families. Children have a chance to tackle a variety of mathematical problems guided by University of Edinburgh staff and students. They are encouraged to behave as little mathematicians as they make conjectures, explore and explain possible solutions to open ended questions. We think these event would benefit all students, and not only the high achieving.

Most of the activities we use during our Maths Circles are courtesy of nRich (https://nrich.maths.org/

The next online Maths Circle will be this Saturday (26th March). Attendance is free but booking is required. 

Further details and info on how to book can be found at: https://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/school-of-mathematics/outreach/maths-circle 

Circles in Maths, Nature and Everyday Life (Edinburgh Science Festival): 9th- 13th April 2022

In April 2022 we will contribute to the Edinburgh Science festival with a drop-in session taking place at the National Museum of Scotland. Our activities will explore the characteristics of the circle, and how such characteristics underpin various aspects of science, technology and everyday life, such as using a map or rolling a coin through a vending machine.
