Clas 7 tried the Outdoor PE Route at the Union Canal on Friday. They really enjoyed the activity and provided P6/7 with some valuable feedback. We are looking forward to visits from our cluster schools this week and hope they enjoy the PE Route too.
This video was taken at the Natural History Museum in London. We have lots of palaeontologists at Tollcross and I am sure they will enjoy watching this robotic T-Rex, he looks very real and very scary ! Don’t watch before bedtime !
The Eco Committee made this video using imovie and presented it at a whole school assembly to introduce the Litter Picking Rota. The Rota has been a great success in helping to keep our playground litter free. Thank you to Ms Chadwick and the Eco Committee for all their hard work. We are keen to be green !
P6/7 worked with Robertson Construction to make a giant tetrahedron. Pupils worked collaboratively to make the structure which was 4 metres high and 4 metres wide !
Tollcross Primary was awarded £3000 from Education Scotland to develop core skills in P.E. Our project involves setting up stations along the canal basin to develop core skills, using QR codes to provide instructions. A QR reader will be used to download the instructions to complete the course and a certificate will be available to download once the course is complete. Yesterday P6/7 pupils were out at the canal to find out how it is being used.
Pupils used a mind map to plan their ideas and are working with Ms Chadwick and Mr Devine to design and create a course to develop core PE skills. Follow our blog for further updates.
