P4M have had a very busy time over the last few weeks! Mr Green joined us as a teaching student from the University of Edinburgh and worked with us on a number of topics. The class particularly enjoyed the science experiments he delivered on dissolving and water filters. We will be saying farewell to him this week on Friday 9th March.
We have started to learn how to code as our latest class project, and have had a Field Trip to the Apple Store on Princes Street. The class learned how to code using the coding language Swift and the iPad app called Swift Playgrounds. This is a free app so if you have an iPad at home you could download it and give it a go! The class also learned how to code Sphero robots using block based programming. We will be following this up in class with some work using an app called Tynker and a visit to Craigmount High School to work with Microbits.
Don’t forget this term we have parent consultations so we are looking forward to seeing you all then! Miss Millar will be taking care of the Wednesday evening consultations and Mrs Martin will be taking the Friday appointments.
