Microscopic Art

We investigated the outdoors, finding different natural materials to explore further. We then placed our selected items under the microscope in order to inspire our artwork!

Pictures will follow!

Mandarin

We have been working with Chow to learn mandarin. As past of this topic we made paper pandas.

Reminders

Monday – Creativity Challenge

Remember to bring your resources, as decided by your group on Thursday, to school on Monday morning. Resources should be items from home which you are able to upcycle as they are no longer required by anyone in your home. Please ensure you have permission before bringing any items in.

You also require your packed lunch, as we will be at Mearns Primary all day.

You can communicate with your group over the weekend to discuss resource and design ideas. Use the google classrooms icon on your glow launch pad. You were given the classroom code for your team on Thursday.

Jotters

Remember to share your learning with your family over the weekend and complete the sheet, which is on the inside of your cover, together. You have worked very hard so talk to your family about everything you have been learning in Science and Social Studies. Be proud of yourself!

Eventful Short Week – Creativity Challenge

P6a have been very busy this week! We had our firsr visit to Mearns Primary to begin our creativity challenge. The design brief has been set. It involves many different components. We have to design and make an outfit and accessories which has a given science focus, select music and write a script for our fashion show and produce a movie of the process! We will continue this throughout the month. Keep an eye out for photos from the the show!

Bikeability

With two bikeability sessions under our belts P6a is ready to venture out on to the road. We will be doing this the week after next, as the class are not in school on Tuesday (it is an in service day for staff). We are learning how to travel safely on our bikes and how to indicate our intentions to other road users.

Keep studying your bikeability books as there will be an assessment of your road rules soon!

Space

This week we have been learning about the number of moons each planet has and why this number is not always the same from one year to the next. We also designed our own satellites and made rockets. Alasdair told us about NASA’s recent success in landing a reuseable rocket. This is a huge achievement and will impact on space travel greatly! We tested the rockets and used our knowledge of distance, speed and time to calculate their speed. It was a lot of fun!
