Eco Schools Project Edina Bulbs

The Eco Committee and their buddies (4 from each class) have been planting the daffodil and crocus bulbs which we have received as part of the Edina Science Project. We discussed a fair test and how every plant pot had to be planted in the same way.  We planted 59 pots – each with one daffodil and one crocus bulb, clearly labelled.  A further 20 bulbs are being planted directly into the ground. Starting from next week, we need to start recording the weather and inputting this into a database. By the end of the project, all the information from all schools taking part, across the UK,  will be pulled together and conclusions drawn about how levels of sunshine or rainfall have had an impact on the growth and flowering of the bulbs.


P6G Glasgow Science Centre trip

On Monday P6s from Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas Primary schools came together to visit the Glasgow Science Centre as part of their Space topic.

We had a great time watching the 3D movie all about life on the International Space Station.  Next we visited the planetarium and went star gazing in our amazing reclining chairs !

We also had a great time visiting the science stalls and doing some of the hand on experiments . Last stop was the gift shop for some souvenirs (coffee for the grown ups!)

A great day was had by all!
