Primary 7 pupils had a wonderful opportunity to explore some fascinating science last week. All of our Science teachers accompanied our enthusiastic Science Technician, Mrs Pam Hamilton, on visits to each of our Associated Primary Schools.
Primary 7 pupils, who will be coming up to the Academy in August, were treated to some weird and wacky experiments for a whole morning or afternoon. The focus was on skills of enquiry and pupils were encouraged to ask questions while taking part in an exciting range of experiments.
The programme is a new addition to our transition arrangements for Primary 7 pupils. Staff from our English department and our Maths department also visit primary schools to focus on Literacy, Numeracy and jotter work skills.
Primary 7 pupils visit Charleston Academy on 17 and 18 June when they will follow a sample timetable. Before that, our Guidance staff will be visiting all Primary 7 classes next week. Additionally, there is an information evening for parents of all Primary 7 pupils in our school hall at 7pm on Monday 17 June. Invitation letters have recently been sent out via our associated schools.
