Harlaw Social Subjects Trip

On Thursday the 27th P7 went to Harlaw Academy for a Social Subjects trip. We all got in groups and went to different workshops to learn about volcanos.

1st workshop:We used brushes to brush the sand away to try and find items and then we learned about how the Romans lived and how Pompeii got covered in ashes from the volcano.

2nd workshop:We used bolts and party poppers to see how long it would take for a volcano to erupt we also learned that if  you leave 1 to 3 days before the volcano erupts no one will die.

3rd workshop:We got character cards describing our personality then there is 2 people who are told the personalities then they have to decide if the people get in the boat or not then there is one big boat and everyone has to decide who stays and who goes.

4th workshop:We had 2 different groups, one had an envelope with a piece of paper with a family’s  description. We had a selection of pictures and we had to choose 5 things the family need to survive an attempt of escaping a volcano eruption but the second group had to pick 5 items for the whole city.

P7 Rookie Lifesaving

19  P7 pupils from P6/7 and P7 went to a Rookie Lifesaving Event at RGU. The event consisted of a session in the pool, then we learnt to do first aid, and lastly we got to try doing CPR on dummies!

In the Pool

In the pool we started off using the pool buoys. We had to chuck them into the pool for the person to catch. Then they had to turn onto their back and kick. We had to reel the ropes in and the chuck them into the pool. The person in the water had to catch the rope and get pulled in. After that we learnt how to do jumps into the water. You would use them if you were trying to save somebody!

First Aid

When we started the First Aid the first thing we learnt how to do was a broken arm sling, then an elevation sling which supports the shoulder if you have broken your collarbone or hurt your shoulder. After that we learnt how to bandage a cut on the head or arm.


CPR stands for Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation. We learnt how to do chest compressions, mouth to mouth, checking the airway and DR ABC it means Danger, Response, Airway, Breathing and Circulation. I think everybody enjoyed themselves and learnt new things!

British Science Week

Last week it was British Science Week with the theme ‘Change’. So we took part in doing some experiments. Firstly we put milk in to Coca Cola which separated it into the additives and colouring. Secondly we made Uüber or corn flour gloop by mixing water and cornflour. Thirdly we put Mentos into some different fizzy drinks including Pepsi, Sprite and Fanta Zero. We found the Diet Pepsi gave the heist geyser.

The next experiment we took part in was making ice cream.We did this by putting Ice into a ziplock bag then putting in salt to lower the freeing point of the ice we then got a smaller bag and put in milk, sugar and vanilla essence we closed the bag and put it in the bag of ice and salt and shook it until it turned to ice cream.

Fourthly we took part in making bouncy balls using borax, water, glue, food dye and corn flour. We made them by mixing them together in a certain sequence.
