P4 Science

Primary 4 carried out a science investigation using 2 slices of apple and a 2 tomatoes. We wanted to discover what would happen if we mummified fruit.

We mixed the salt and baking soda together, this was our natron. Natron draws water out of things and dries them up. This is why salty things make us thirsty.

By drying something out, it doesn’t have the moisture it needs for the rotting process, so it works as a preservative.

We are excited to observe the changes that will take place and see if our predictions were correct.

Well done Primary 4. 🙂

Delicious Fruit Kebabs

Primary 4 have been learning about the Growing Season in Ancient Egypt. We know that when the River Nile flooded it created rich fertile soil. The soil was then ploughed and seeded.

The Egyptians grew their own fruit so we decided to sample some fresh fruit in class. We enjoyed selecting our fruit and eating our fruit kebabs. Delicious!

We celebrated the feast of St. Patrick by attending Mass in St. John Bosco’s Church this morning. Primary 6 prepared the liturgy for Mass. Well done!

In the afternoon Primary 7 children performed the story of St. Patrick – it was very entertaining.

Well done primary 7!!

The week ahead…

The Growth Mindset focus for this week is:

It was another successful week for St. Patrick’s Primary – the choir from P6 &7 who performed at the Glasgow Music Festival sang beautifully. They were a credit to their families and the school.

The 6 children who joined with the NLC Samba Band at the Nurture Multi-Agency Conference in the Civic Centre were outstanding. We certainly have some very talented children. I was a very proud HT sitting in the audience of 350 delegates who watched the performance. Well done!

Well done to the two Primary 6 who took part in the Taylor High School Cluster Knex challenge – they were excellent ambassadors for the school.

Congratulations to the children from Christ The King Primary who came 1st in the challenge.

Egyptian Mummies

Primary 4 created their own Egyptian mummies this afternoon using tin foil, water, and paper towels for bandages. They worked co-operatively and shared resources.  The children found out more about the mummification process and had lots of fun creating their own mummies. Great work Primary 4 🙂
