Buoyancy and Density Challenge

We have been learning about buoyancy and density in science. Yesterday, we were applying our knowledge of buoyancy and density to a practical challenge. We were designing and constructing a boat that takes into account factors such as buoyancy, the properties of materials and design contraints. Let the challenge begin…

Save the Last Dance

It was the last day of Scottish Dancing today. The boys and girls learnt three new dances and were showing off their skills today. We had great fun and even completed a full class Virginia Reel – well done! šŸ™‚

Christmas Quiz

We had great fun this morning competing in the Christmas quiz with the P7 class. There were 2 winning teams so it went down to a nail biting final question round between the 2 teams.

P6/7 Anagram Challenge

Recently, in class we have been enjoying the challenge of cracking Mathanagrams for our mathematical starter. As a class we decided to make up our very own Mathanagrams to challenge other pupils, friends and family at home. We also made some festive themed anagrams. Here are some of our Anagrams below, why don’t you give them a go today?

Good luck!

Christmas Lunch

Primary 7 were off to their Christmas Lunch at the White Cart today. All boys and girls had a great timeĀ eating delicious foodĀ and were exemplar pupils representing Busby Primary School.

 

Virgin Money Total Count

This morning we counted up the final takings for the Virgin Money Make Ā£5 grow campaign and the year group made a fantastic profit of Ā£599!!! Well done to everyone (including parents šŸ™‚ ) who took part and spent lots of time at home making their wonderful crafts and games. Extra well done to “The Winter Wonders”Ā  who made the most profit of Ā£92.80 .

Panda Time

We were making Pandas in Mandarin this afternoon. P6/7 had to cut, stick and fold paper to form the shape. The children were learning the colours and how to say black and white.Ā 

‘Dancing’ Raisins

We have been investigating the buoyancy and density of different everyday items through science experiments. Today, we were investigating what would happen if we dropped raisins into soda water. The results were amazing – the raisins were ‘dancing’.

We noticed that the raisinsĀ sank at first this was due to their density. However, becauseĀ raisins haveĀ a dented surface and rough texture it means that they are filled with air pockets. These air pockets attracted the carbon dioxide gas in the liquid, creating little bubbles on the raisins. The carbon dioxide increases the volume of each raisin; therefore, the density of the raisins was lowered…

Can you guess what happened next?
