Learning about the Moon and Gaelic

Today at school in the afternoon at 1:00 we had Mrs Rae and we were makeing a moon chart. We made little moons, you get a cup and a black pen and trace over the cup and get your pen and colour in the moon and get tin foil and wrap the tin foil around the moon all the moon shapes and thats how you do it.  After break we had Miss Macrae and went on Twitter and a man was asking us to tell him the days of the week in gaelic. Then we all got given numbers and typed them on the computer then after that it was home time.

P4/5 science.

Hi my name is Ciara and yesterday we were doing science in class in the afternoon. This is what we did, we got a bowl and put plastic over it and put sugar on and banged a drum loud and the sound made the sugar move. We learned
that sound is faster in water and if someone bangs the wall quietly you can hear it far away.  We did three other experiments.



Yesterday we where learning about science.  One of the things we learned was if you put your ear to something metal and get your friend to hit something hard on it you will hear it faster than through the air.  If you put your ear to the wall and get a friend to hit it round the corner you can hear.


Science And Experiments

We did some experiments on sound today.  We learned that sound travels 15 times faster through metal and bricks than air.  In the ear there is a little bone that sends signals to the brain, it tells it if it’s a high sound or low, loud or quiet and the bone is above the ear drum. Sound is shock wave of vibration. We did an experiment on making something move without touching it.  First you get a bowl and wrap it in cling film, second put sugar on it and then get an instrument and bang it and the sugar moves.

Hello, my name is Jodie, and our new Topic is sound.   It is interesting because we did an experiment. You get a
musical instrument and and a drum and put salt on it and bang the instrument and the salt should move and I learned when you speak sound waves come out.

Yesterday we were learning about Science. Two interesting facts I found out were that sound travels eighteen times faster through
metal than air and if you want to measure sound you have to use a Oscilloscope.

In p45 we have been learning all about electricity and what a wonderful thing it is.  We have made lots of electrical circuits, created our own games using switches and found out what fun you can have with a balloon, some hair and a knowledge of the movement of electrons in an atom.  A great explanation of many of these items can be found on Youtube under Bill Nye Science Guy, so check him out!  Next week we are going to take all we know about electricity and use it to design and build an electrical Christmas Gizmo DoohDaah.
