Primary 4/5 Science Experiments

Primary 4/5 have been carrying out a few science experiments in class this term. We did an investigation to find out if salt, sugar, sand, chalk, herbs, flour, washing power, coffee granules and gravy would dissolve in warm water. The children made their predictions and then decided if the materials were soluble or insoluble and recorded them in the correct category in their table. They also then predicted how many spoonfuls of sugar/salt they could add to the water before it became saturated.

Some of the children brought equipment into school to demonstrate their own experiments. Archie made his own slime. Lexie demonstrated the skittles experiment. Liam showed us the reaction created when mints are added to a bottle of coke.

Well done P4/5!


Pattern Hunt

We went on a pattern hunt to the park.  We were pattern detectives and took binoculars and magnifying glasses to help us.  We were amazed at how many patterns there are around us.  We all got a chance to use the cameras to take photos of what we found – and we took quite a few pictures of our feet and the ground as well!  Below are some of the pictures that we took ourselves.

This week we are beginning our Autumn topic with a walk in the woods on Wednesday and we are concluding our Elmer topic with an Elmer Day celebration on Thursday.
