Special Five Star Gold Award


This Tuesday we had a very special Five Star Gold Award.

These two little superstars received their awards for some amazing fundraising for our school. After being sponsored by family and friends, Ruaridh and Daisy set a target for the number of steps they needed to achieve and they managed to raise a total of £269! On behalf of everyone at Daviot, thank you very much and we are really proud of you 🙂

Mrs Beattie also chose a special recipient for the Five Star Gold Award…the whole of Class 2! She was blown away by their fantastic efforts during our Science Week, but in particular by their amazing STEM homework.

Class 2 will receive some extra time on Friday afternoon as a special treat.

Well done to all!

More Microbes- Compost Cups

Today we looked at how microbes are involved in the composting process.  We used a concept cartoon to challenge our thinking before watching a video.  We then set up a fair test to see how quickly chopped and unchopped products        (fruit, veg, leaves and paper) would decompose. We will observe and record our findings over a few weeks.
