This is the recording of the winner of the Primary 7 category in the Burns competition, Asher, reading Address to a Haggis by Robert Burns (from memory!).
P6/7 have been set do to a personal topic on an endangered animal in the rain forest. You could present it any way, like a power point, a prezzi, a poster or even a video. I am doing my personal topic on endangered gorillas in the rain forest. with either a power point or a prezzi. I have never done a prezzi before, I chose to do a prezzi/power point because I love using the computer. I am doing the gorilla because i think they are really cool and they are the closest animal to humans.
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.
Every week a different group will be adding to the learning blog, talking about their learning, interests and achievements. I hope you enjoy finding out what is happening in our school!
This term P45 have been learning about the sea around Islay.
