To conclude our topic on ‘Titanic’ we carried out an investigation to see which objects would sink and which objects would float. We made sure that everyone was involved in the task by assigning group members a particular role to carry out eg manager, presenter, time-keeper, scribe and voice monitor.
OUR CHALLENGE- can you make the orange sink?
On Monday 9th March W5 visited Hardy to help us to celebrate Science Week. Pupils from P7H enjoyed watching a show all about ‘SPACE’.

P7 PUPILS VISIT THE ARGORY
On Thursday 17th October the P7 pupils visited the Argory as part of their WAU topic ‘Victorian Times’. They found out what life was like for different social classes at the time of the potato famine in Ireland. The children stepped back in time to 1847 by dressing up in Victorian costumes and applying for jobs in the ‘Big House’.
THE SUCCESSFUL JOB APPLICANTS
Hardy pupils welcomed Jeannie Graham back to the P6 and P7 classrooms to raise awareness of the problems associated with smoking, alcohol, drug abuse and related peer pressure.
