Class rules

 

 

 

We have a number of classroom rules which we like to follow. If we are well behaved we gain certificates and class prizes. If we do not follow the

 rules we end up on the red traffic light which means detention. Our class rules:

 

Always listen to others.

Always walk in the classroom.

Always be polite, kind and helpful.

Always keep the classroom tidy and look after school property.

Remember to change your shoes.

Rocks, Glaciers and Volcano Workshop

On Tuesday 27th February, the Primary 6 classes were given an interactive science session about the rocks that make up our earth, glaciers, natural disasters and the effects of climate change. The presenter, Steven, showed the classes how the melting of the ice caps is impacting the world with some first hand pictures and videos. He then let the pupils create their own experiments to show how earthquakes and volcanos happen. This work was all linked in with our current topic of Coping with Climate.
