Beach Clean

2 weeks ago it was the beach clean and all of the school went. When we were at the beach clean we were cleaning the beach, some of the parents were there. At the beach I found a fishing boat mat so the boys helped me lift it, it was so heavy so we put it in the van and I found a chimney pot when it was finished we got a ice lolly after our ice lolly we went back to the school and had break then it was home time.

My Personal Topic

My topic is the lungs, I have made a 3D modal of the lung that shows how your diaphragm works also I’m making a power point about asthma. How the lungs work, when you breath in your diaphragm pulls down, it lets air in to your lungs and grow out when you breath out your diaphragm pulls in and your lungs goes in.

Dissecting a chicken!

This week we were dissecting a chicken and I thought it was good for research.
We found lots of cool stuff like;

LIVER

MUSCLE

KNEE CAP

KIDNEYS

THE WINGS

SPINAL CORD

CORDS

We thought we saw the lungs but it was on the wrong side for the lungs
but Mrs MacDonald thinks it is the lungs as well so I think it’s the lungs.
I touched every thing, so did Abbie. (I loved it,it was the best lesson ever!)

Dissecting A Chicken

On Thursday I felt so excited because p4/5 dissected a Chicken. Amazingly I felt so,so impressed with myself because Izzy,Ciara and I were the only three girls in the class that held all its Organs. We all were very impressed with Mrs Clark because it was only a Co-op Chicken she bought but there was still liver in it.

At some points it was quite gross but at all time awfully COOL! Here are some of the things we saw
. The Liver
. The kidneys
. The Blood Vessels
. The Lungs (Well we thought it was the Lungs)

Also so much more 😀

Healthy Tuck

Every week on a Thursday we are doing healthy tuck. This week my group went first. On the Wednesday we went to the co-op with Mrs Macfarlane and Miss McKascle. We bought all our ingredients then we all went back to school. The next day we had to make them.   At afternoon break we sold them and we made a profit of £15.35.
