Update on what P1/2 have been doing.

We have been doing lots of fact finding using the internet and books. Eva
We also visited two museums in Port Charlotte. Matthew
The museums were Islay Natural History Museum and The Museum of Islay Life. Murray
When we were at the museums we saw bones, stones and old tools. Ruaraidh
At the museum we talked about organising animals into different groups. Eva
Now we know about museums we are going to work together to set up our own dinosaur museum. We hope to have it ready for visitors by the end of next week.
As part of finance week we have been learning all about coins. We have been identifying different coins and we know that if we are counting up coins we should start with the one which has the biggest value. We have also set up a shop and cafe which will be part of our dinosaur museum.
P1/2 are going to be singing in the local mod and we have started learning our song which is about fire engines, tractors and vans.
Struan and Ruaraidh already know all their words! well done! (Darren and Struan)
We have started to think about the olympics and we discovered that the olympic symbol is 5 rings in different colours. Each ring represents one of the 5 continents. (Natalie and Ruaraidh)
We also found out that a long time ago married ladies weren’t allowed to go to the olympics. Eva
Football is an olympic sport and we have been playing it at gym. Taylor

Frozen Adventure

We have completed our stop motion animation about the Polar Lands. We worked in 3 groups and used 3 sets which we made ourselves. First there was a school set with a boy and Scottish animals and a Golden Eagle. The next set was the Arctic which had Polar bears, an Inuit, Arctic Hare, a seal and The Northern Lights. The final set was in Antarctica and there were penguins, a Blue whale, an explorer on his sledge with his husky. We had to edit the photos, add music and our story. We will be uploading it onto the school website. We all had lots of fun working together and put a lot of effort into our animation. We hope you enjoy watching it!
