CRICKET AT COUNTESSWELLS

This week, some pupils from Primary 6 and Primary 7 had the opportunity to play some cricket with Robert Gordon’s pupils down at  their Countesswells facility. Having received input for a number of years from the Redball Cricket team, our pupils were able to apply their batting, bowling and fielding skills in a new context. Well done to all!

 

 

 

 

Oor Wullie visited and we have been designing how we think he should look

 

 

We have been very busy this term. Here is a flavor of some of our learning!

Hannah from the SSPCA taught us how to look after animals and why wild animals should be kept in their natural habitat.

In Science we have been designing and building our very own ROV models, suitable for the environment of a planet in the Trappist-1 solar system (which really does exist).

We strengthened our partnership with Hazlehead Academy by participating in the S3 Leadership Ceilidh. It was great to apply our Scottish Country Dancing in a real life context.

Last week, we received a Lego Robotics session courtesy of our partnership with BP. We spent the day using our coding skills in order to program our Lego models. This gave us an insight into the type of jobs and careers that are out there within STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Maths) subjects.
