All pupils took part in a Coding Workshop on Tuesday 3rd March. They did very well and learned lots.It was a great day and lots of learning and fun!
P4-7 have entered a cookery competition organised by the Food Drink Federation Scotland and sponsored by Brakes.It is called the Braw Lunch Brake Challenge. They have split into two teams and have created a dish to cook. One team decided on a pot noodle, the other time chose a McCrawford. They each made their dish and the rest of the school tasted them and reviewed them. They hope to be successful in the competition. Good luck!
On Wednesday 13th March Alistair and Steve from Project 3 came to school and worked with the children on Technology.
P1-3 worked on digital posters, while P4-7 used coding to write their own games,
In the afternoon P1-7 worked together in pairs and created their own animation movies. The end result was amazing and the children were wonderful.
In the evening the guys led an internet safety workshop for parents which was very informative. We look forward to the guys returning in May.
The pupils of Crawford Primary were very lucky to get the chance to make bracelets with Miss Bennie. She has been doing work experience at school over the last few weeks. She agreed to teach the pupils how to make jewellery. Every child loved the activity and were delighted to go home with a gift in a gift box, all ready for Christmas. Thank you Miss Bennie.
On Wednesday 10th October Iain Wales, son of Mrs Wales, visited the school with his drone. He talked about his drone to the children explaining how it works and how much practice it takes to fly one. He then used his drone around the village of Crawford so the pupils could see a bird’s eye view of the school and the village. A big thank you to Iain for giving up his time to visit the school and help with the P1-3 topic.
This week was like Christmas. Huge parcels arrived and the children were allowed to unpack them. It was new loose materials for the playground. They are fabulous and the children had a ball setting them all up. They were then allowed some time to play on them and the health and safety regulations were discussed. Lunchtimes and playtimes have now become very exciting!!
Thursday 13th September was our first Forest School Day. This was the first time our P1 pupils and Aryaan in P2 had been at Fairy Gate Wood. All pupils arrived dressed perfectly for the outdoors. Everyone had a great day. The activities were whittling, laundry and toast making.P4-7 pupils led the group activities. A wonderful lunch of toasted sandwiches was served around the campfire.
Friday 16th March was an exciting day for all pupils and staff. It was the Engineering Showcase, the culmination of a project organised by Miss McCartney.
Engineers from various workplaces visited the school to talk about their jobs. The pupils asked lots of questions. The pupils were then inspired to think of an issue or problem in life which they could solve with an engineering invention. The pupils made their designs and labelled them to show how their design would solve a problem or issue. The pupils all wrote a pitch letter to the judging panel saying why the judges should choose their design to make into a prototype.
On Friday 16th , parents and friends came in to school to look at all the designs and pitch letters. They had then to vote on the one in P1-4 and P5-7 that they thought was the best design.
All visitors were impressed with the designs and realised how much work had been put into this project. Thank you Miss McCartney for giving us this idea to enter the competition. Let’s hope we have some winners!!
