Science Awards Assembly

The whole school took part in Science Week at the end of May.  P1 – P7 were set a homework to come up with their own investigations.  Children were involved with problem solving and predicting and analysing.

We had an amazing assembly for the science winners and to celebrate all the hard work across the school.  P5 also performed their ‘States of Matter’ rap.  It was fab!

Hazelwood Integrated College helped us to choose the overall KS1 and KS2 winners.  A little boy from P1 explored fingerprints in his house and a P7 girl looked at snails’ shells and their patterns.  Two worthy winners.

The science winners for 2021
Awarding the winners for the science happened in class -due to COVID as there is unfortunately still no assembly in school.  The medals were given out in class by their teacher and all the pupils celebrated.

It was the 21st year of the science assembly this year. Each class had a 1st, 2nd and 3rd winner. Due to COVID these children will be awarded their prizes in September assembly.  The overall winner was from P4 - well done.

There was a fantastic effort from all the children and we look forward to further celebrations in September.  
thank you to Miss Davis for all her hard work.
