P4/5 had a fantastic time designing and creating their own marble runs yesterday using the Kapla bricks. Mr Caldow set the criteria and the children worked in teams to create and test their constructions.
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.
