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)
On Thursday 24th May P4-7 were making wind yachts and we had to measure wood then cut it were you put a mark. There was lot of gluing and sellotaping. At the end we had a race with our yachts and we when up in six. In my group I came 3rd. It was very good and exiting.
Yesterday our school Port Ellen had a science visit. And we made wind surfers for to play races with. We used junior saws to cut our wood. We also got to use straws for attaching the wheels. When it finished it had been home time.
On Thursday 24th May we were dissecting a chicken, when i saw the inside of the chicken it looked really cool. Mrs Clark let us hold bits and bobs, the things we got to see and hold were:
• wish bone
Some of the things we touched was squidgy.
I thought I was brave and calm looking inside the chicken but thought I couldn’t look at it though I could. 🙂
From the 11th March-16th March it is science and engineering week. Primary 4-7 are all taking part in a whole week of science and all the activities we do is about forces. The first thing that we learned was Newton’s 3 laws and they are very important because they describe forces very well. The first law is “when forces acting on an object they are balanced,it will remain at rest or move in an straight line at constant speed”. The 2nd law is “force=mass x acceleration”. The 3rd law is “every action has an equal and opposite reaction” and that is Newtons 3 laws.
At Port Ellen primary we were doing science almost all week we had to learn about forces for example there was friction, if you went on something bumpy friction would slow you down, and mass if something is heavy it will have mass and it will slow it down.
On the 12th of March we started to do some science for the whole week and today we are making a car and it is really, really tricky. But we manged and it is really fun. Angus was at the dentist so he didn’t really get to do much but he did the wheels and they fitted perfectly. After lunch Abbie and I are going to decorate the whole car.

We are making a car today, we have had to think about what it will run on. We have been designing the car to look funky and cool. The car is looking ok but we will be making it look even better. We have to add our own engine as well. 🙂

This week is science and engineering week. Our aim is to be able to successfully make a car by the end of the week. We are also trying to know Newton’s three laws off by heart, the first one is when forces acting on an object are balanced,it will remain at rest or move in a straight line at constant speed, the second rule is force=mass x acceleration and finally the third rule is every action has an equal and opposite reaction. On Monday we had science activities in groups to complete my group is Daniel Ewan Izzy and I . My favourite activity was buoyancy!:)
