5A tried their hand at paper mache this week to create these glorious globes! It goes along side our new topic started this week, looking at our endangered earth! With help from an atlas, P5 created and positioned the 7 world continents themselves. Fantastic work!
As part of our Scots Week mini project, we looked at the art work of Gillian Kyle. Kyle’s style is known for using Scottish iconography and bold, bright colours.
Our excellent examples have certainly brightened up the room!
Inspired by the ingenuity of Thomas Telford, P5A became structural engineers for the day!
Using only scrap paper, pupils were tasked with constructing a bridge to cross a 20cm gap.
We found the most efficient design to be the beam bridge. Several bridges still held strong after 2000g of weight and a few water bottles on top!!

Thank you to all pupils, and those who have supported, for preparing spectacular Scots poetry performances. We are thoroughly enjoying watching them in class.

We saw off the term with a toilet paper snow man competition!
Thanks to all member of P5a for a fantastic start to the year, they have worked so hard and found plenty of time for fun!
Wishing all families a fantastic winter break and a happy new year. I’m already looking forward to another bonkers term with P5a!!
Primary Five were innovative engineers this week, designing and modelling their own forms of sustainable transport! We researched and discussed sustainable fuel sources, as well as existing forms of sustainable transport for inspiration.
Thank you to all families for supplying our building materials of recycled goods! I think you will all agree we have very innovative young engineers in our midst!!
P5a are coming to the end of a fantastic first term. Since starting Primary Five, we have had a learning focus on community – both within our classroom now and throughout history. Here are some of the highlights from this term.
In our study of communities, we learned about the Aboriginals, the indigenous population of Australia. Aboriginal art is still prevalent in their community today, as it passes down stories and traditions to new generations. P5a created their own aboriginal art, inspired by nature and animals indigenous to Australia. Aboriginal art primarily uses natural colours, symbols, lines and dots.
