World Book Day 2019

On World Book Day we had to dress up as a character from a book using the clothes that is in our dressing up box at school. I was a witch. After you’ve gotten your clothes done then you need to start making an accessory, my accessory was a wand that was made from a card tube, glitter and masking tape. We also did a 55 word challenge to write a story only using 55 words.

Red Nose Day 2019

On 15/3/19 it is Red Nose Day and we are going to be dressing up in as many dressing up clothes in one minute we are going to do it one after the other. We are going to do it at 11:30. We are hoping to raise a few pounds we don’t expect hundreds of pounds as there are only 11 of us in our school. We raised £27.34 we were really pleased with that amount.

Iain Clark – Scottish Parliament

On Wednesday 13th of March Iain Clark from Scottish Parliament came for the afternoon to talk about how the Scottish Parliament works and where it is. After we got Clickapads to answer questions for quizzes. After we chose a party to represent; they were the Music Party and The Animal Welfare Party. After we had to come up with two reasons why we need to be elected. After we chose a Presiding Officer. The Presiding Officer had a wooden hammer called a gaveland he will bang it when a new law has passed/fallen. We did a debate if we should do an hour of PE Everyday. The groups had to think why it is a good thing and why it was a bad thing. Then after everybody voted it is good or not. It was yes. Then after it had to be sent to the Queen to be made into a law. It had to have a royal seal on it to keep it protected. Then it was sent back to the Parliament.

Knitting

These past couple of terms P4 to P7 have been doing knitting with Mary. We are all doing something different, what we are doing is wrist warmers, lambs, penguins, pin cushions and scarfs. We have learned how to do purl and how to cast on and off and how to do normal knitting. When we first started we did bookmarks then we did chicks. On the wrist warmer we had to do a pattern and use three needles; we are all aiming to do a Fair Isle pattern.

Corraflute Vehicles

P4-P7 have made land yachts. The cars can ride very fast down the ramp even on the flat floor. Our land yacht is made out of something called corraflute and the axles are made out of something called doweling and the axles have straws on them so they can move with the wheels on them. The sail on our land yachts is made out of corraflute to but it is stuck on to the bottom with masking tape.

John Byrne 2019

This year P4- P7 entered the competition, everyone else did a drawing as well just to hang up on the wall. In the John Byrne Competition there is no theme so everyone just drew what they wanted, but the only rules are you can not use anything other than pencils and colouring pencils, also you can’t draw from a picture you can only get inspiration from them if needed.

P7 Science Week 1

As part of our S1 transition we started doing science. We started our first week of science on the 10th January with Mrs Tulloch. As soon as we came in we got books for science. On the first week we had to write a sentence that was called science and me. Then after we wrote the Sentences then we did a experiment. We had to get a clamp stand, boss, clamp, 2 beakers, funnel, Filter Paper, 2 sorts of solution clay water and chalk water. We had to pour the solution carefully so it can filter so when it comes out of the funnel it turns clear. Then we explained what had happened and how it turned clear. I learned that chalky water is faster to filter than clay water because clay is thicker that chalk. I enjoyed the first week of science.

Our Chickens

Our Chickens have grown a lot and they are huge since they were chicks. When they were chicks they ate chick crumb and now they eat big chicken food. there is a Cockerel and a Hen. The Hen Is called Chirpy and the Cockerel is called Pecky. Pecky and Chirpy have a pecking block to peck everyday. Every time when the pecking block runs out they get a new one. They get a different pecking block every time the old one runs out they sometimes get a pink one and they some times get a dark green one. Pecky and Chirpy like to peck the pecking block every time when the have nothing to do. Pecky and Chirpy have very fluffy feathers and Pecky and Chirpy have green shiny bits on them that shine in the sun.

Science Transition week 3

On the 24/01/19 it was week three of science transition for P7, who are becoming S1 in August 2019. This week we were talking about 3 types of variables. They were the Independent variable- variables you can change, Dependent variable- the variable you will measure and the Controled variable- the variable you are able to control. Afterwards we had to write down an (I) at which variable you’re going to change. Then we wrote down and (D) beneath the variable you’re going to measure. Then we wrote a (C) at every variable we can control.
