Kirkhill primary visit – Technology week

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Curriculum

On Wednesday 22nd November.  The Technical department prefects and Mr Richards went to Kirkhill Primary to support their Technology week.  They worked with P5, 6 & 7 throughout the day but also spent some time visiting the younger classes during skills development time.  Pupils gave a short presentation to each class then gave a demonstration on the technology tasks provided by the Highland Council framework.  Primary staff and pupils listened intently as the prefects demonstrated some complex electronics and practical tasks.  The prefects then spent an hour in each class helping pupils build electric powered cars, moving toys and carousels.

I was really impressed with the prefects and how well they took to the challenge of teaching younger pupils.  The staff at Kirkhill were very pleased we had come along to help and were full of praise for the Charleston pupils.

Hopefully we will be invited back next year.
