Fact-files on a Personality in French

Today we presented our super presentations on a personality of our choice in French! Bravo!

Further Yeast Investigations

Today we did an experiment, where we put different levels of yeast and sugar in bottles to see what combinations would release the most carbon dioxide and make the balloons the biggest.

Changing the amount of sugar

We found adding more sugar didn’t make a difference but adding more yeast made a big difference.

Still expanding!

The balloons are still getting bigger and everyone in the class is excited to see how big the balloons grow over the weekend.

 

Yeast Investigation

Today we did a yeast investigation, to see what temperature is the optimum condition for yeast to work. We used cold water, warm water and boiling hot water.

The sugar and the yeast have started to react and the balloons are still getting filled with carbon dioxide.  Everyone in the class are  excited to see how big the balloons grow over night!

P3 Weddings

Thank you to Miss MacArthur and Miss Ali for inviting P7a to celebrate their 6 weddings.

We saw a Christian wedding, Hindu wedding and a Muslim wedding and we learnt the differences between them.

Thank you once again and I am looking forward to your wedding Miss MacArthur!

I promise not to talk. :-0

Mouldy Bread

Today we set up an experiment to see which bread will go mouldy first.

We wanted to find out if the different types of bread would make a difference.

We also changed some of the conditions so see which variable will mould first. Wet/light, wet/dark, dry/light and dry /dark.

Watch this space!

P7 Show – Aladdin Vests

Dear Parent/Carer,

Your child will shortly be taking part in a school performance for P7 school show. As always we rely on your assistance to help to organise your child’s costume where possible. As part of the costume for this show, we will be making Arabian style vests which each cast member will wear. To help us to make these vests, we require your child to bring an old t-shirt to school. This t-shirt will be cut and decorated to make their own particular vest. Please only supply an old or cheap t-shirt that you are happy to be cut and sewn.

Each part of our ensemble will require a different shade of t-shirt. We have specified the colour for your child  below. If you have any problems sourcing this, please let us know as soon as possible and we will be happy to assist you.

Please can we have these in for Friday 13th March.

As always, your cooperation is very much appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

P7 Teachers

Fairtrade Fortnight

Dear Parent/Carer,

Our Fairtrade Pupil Group members have been working very hard to promote Fairtrade Fortnight which starts on Monday 24 February and finishes on Sunday 8 March 2020.

As preparation for Fairtrade Fortnight the Primary 4 pupil group members conducted a survey to find out which treats children would like to buy at the tuck shop we are planning to run. A subgroup of Primary 5s created posters to advertise the tuck shop around the school. The older members of the pupil group will be giving a speech and showing a PowerPoint to the rest of the school to raise awareness of Fairtrade. The Primary 7 members created a rota for the tuck shop (see below).

We would like to invite children to bring in cash to buy a Fairtrade treat from the tuck shop. We will be offering Geobake chocolate chip cookies, a variety of Divine chocolate bars and Fairtrade Jellybeans. The tuck shop will be running from Monday 2nd March until Friday 6th March. All items are £1.10 so please send your child with the correct amount if possible.

  • Monday 2nd March – Primary 1 and Primary 2
  • Tuesday 3rd March – Primary 3
  • Wednesday 4th March – Primary 4 and Primary 5
  • Thursday 5th March – Primary 6
  • Friday 6th March – Primary 7
