This afternoon P7/6L were visited by Claire from the SSPCA. We watched a film all about the important work carried out by the SSPCA in Scotland. The SSPCA is the only animal charity who will respond to calls regarding any type of animal (domestic, wild or farm animal). We spent time learning about different animals and were fascinated by some of the facts. For example, did you know a cow can walk up a set of stairs but cannot come down? After learning facts we challenged a partner to recall them to win points. Finally we learnt about animal emotions and how our actions impact them. We used coding skills to program a story for a robot using an app on a tablet. We could control the noises, words and pictures on the screen and also movements of our animal in response to a different scenario.
