Coal mining. We have been learning about renewable and non renewable energy, particularly in Scotland. Looking at maps of mines, we discovered that most of them closed a very long time ago. We carried out an experiment to investigate the effect of mining on the landscape. The more chocolate chips (coal) we mined, the worse the effect on the landscape. We drew what we imagined would happen to a landscape.

We had a class meeting to share our views with the pupil council and sustainable squad reps. We shared what we think is going well at Kingsland and what changes we would like to see. Here are the post boxes that Vivienne and Rosie made for our views.

‘I wish I had the skill to sing lyrics to my song while eating pancakes and syrup in the cygnet infested water while not missing the finish of the swimming race.’ Brilliant!
We are looking at maps of Scotland to locate towns, cities and power stations.

voting for Rosie as Pupil Council rep and Vivienne for Sustainable Squad rep
Well done to all the pupils who applied for the jobs of class council rep and sustainable squad rep. They were all well prepared and spoke clearly and confidently about their strengths and hopes for the coming year.
Our class council representative this year is Jade (secretary – Lola).
Our sustainable squad representative is Caitlin (secretary Ella).
A huge thank you to the pupils from primary 6/7 who helped us create our animations using our pipe cleaner people. We took photos on our I pads and then put them into I movie to create a short film. We really enjoyed this and will try adding some background scenery and sound effects next week.
