The Swan Trip

Today we went on the Swan. First we went below decks to go and see the toilets why the other three got there live jackets on. Then we went sailing .We learned how to tie knots with Maggie. We started at the Burravoe Marina and went all the way until we could see Mossbank. We had to pull the rope to get the sail up. We also got hot chocolate on the way back to the pier. My favourite thing was probably make the knots because they were really useful if you wanted to become a sailor. Thank you for having us on the Swan we really enjoyed it.

Our Visit From Glasgow Science Center

Yesterday 2 women from the Glasgow Science Center came to our school. Fetlar School also came for the experience. In the morning P1-3 had their session with them and in the afternoon P4-7 had theirs. Our session was a bit different to the little session. Our session was called disgusting digestion.We learned about the different stages of digestion. The first stage is your mouth then your oesophagus then your stomach and last it went through your intestines. After the older ones session the little ones and grown ups came and we had a session with little workshops. Some of the workshops where body puzzles, memory games and there was one that showed you what you might look like in ten years time. It also showed you what you would look like if you were drinking and it also showed you what you looked like if you smoked, if you smoked then you looked really wrinkly.One of the workshops was to real LUNGS, but they weren’t human lungs they were pigs lungs but pigs organs and human organs are very similar. There was a healthy pigs lung and an unhealthy pigs lung (they had treated it to make it look like the pig had smoked) you could pump up the lungs to see how well they would be able to breath. For the healthy lung it was easy but for the unhealthy lung it was harder. but I think one of my favourite workshops was the thermal camera it showed you how warm you were and how cold you were.

The Glasgow Science Centre

On the 26th of April the Glasgow Science Centre came before lunch time and after that they borrowed the P 1, 2 and 3s. They learned about body parts, and we learned about Disgusting Digestion. We started off with the One Minute Challenge where you need to eat 2 Cream Crackers  in one minute with no water, ( 2 played, one was me), to show how important saliva is. Then they showed us how the food was pushed down by muscles down  the oesophagus into the stomach with a ball and a round net, and at the end we got showed a poo chart and Mrs. Hay was chosen to be a poo catcher and we pretended that we were pushing a broken bus and then we made an imaginary poo! Mrs Hay as the poo catcher  caught the imaginary poo. After our lesson was finished the younger  ones came in and we got showed what type of things they had at the Glasgow Science Centre there were x-ray pictures, memory test, organ puzzle, brain puzzle, scanned sections of the body from above, a machine that tells you how you might look in 10 years time if you smoke or drink ( look at picture), pig’s lungs that you fill up with air a healthy pig’s lungs and pig’s lungs that scientists have made to look like a smoking human’s lungs, a board that you listen to make you hear a person with asthma a person who smokes and a healthy person, a skin magnifier, a memory test , a multi task box and a thermal imager.

Glasgow Science Centre on Tour and Fetlar Pupils

On Wednesday the 26th, two people came from the Glasgow Science Centre, to our school. They came in a very colourful van. Later all of the pupils came from Fetlar School. First the P1, P2 and P3 went to get their science lesson. Afterwards It was our turn to go to our science lesson. We were learning about our digestion system, we spoke about how our food moulds up in a ball and goes down our oesaphagus next it goes into our stomach, after that it goes into our small intestine which is 6m long , but the small intestine is also very thin so, that’s why it’s called the small intestine, I learned that the intestines get rid of the water from the food . After it goes into the large intestine, which is only 1m and a 1/2, but its called the large intestine because it is really wide. One of the ladies also told us what she ate yesterday, and mixed all those foods in one bag, she pretended that the bag was her stomach. Later she sieved the liquid out of the bag full of food. she told us that the rest of the food would be poo.

Glasgow Science Centre on Tour

On the 26th April the Glasgow Science Centre came to Burravoe School. We did Disgusting Digestions. We saw a diagram for the parts of the body. We did a Cream Cracker challenge. We did about how the digestion system works. We looked at the stages of the digestion. First the food goes to the mouth and then it goes to your oesophagus after it goes to your stomach and the food goes  to your digestion system. The small intestines are 6 meters long and the Large intestines were 1 and a half metres long. Then we went to stations. Jemma showed the stations and explained about them. They were the Skin Magnifier and the Memory test and the X-ray light and a Multi-task activity and The Torso puzzle and the head and neck puzzle and the x-ray puzzle and the time machine. My favourite was the 10 Year time machine because it was interesting to see what I would look like if I smoke and drink in 10 years time.

Glasgow Science Centre

On Wednesday two people from the Glasgow Science Centre came to our school to show us and Fetlar School about our body. The younger ones did a workshop and the older ones did a workshop and then we did an exhibition all together. I learned the word esophagus it was the tube that goes down your neck. I also learned that cigarettes had tar in it and that what makes your lungs black it is the same stuff that is on the road.

Yesterday we had two People from the Glasgow Science Centre come to our School. Our workshop was called disgusting digestions. I learned  what saliva is and how long your your small and big intestines are. We learned what bits of the body you food goes down in to. First its start in your mouth. After that it goes to oephagus to your stomach. At the end there was an exhibition  my favoured game was the memory game because you had to look very carefully and think. I really enjoyed it and I thought it was very good.

Glasgow Science Centre on Tour

Yesterday 2 people from the Glasgow Science Centre came to our school. It was really fun and interesting. It was about digestion. I learnt about the oesophagus and the peristaltic muscles. We did some experiments and they were really funny. My favourite part of the whole thing was the exhibition. There were lots of things to do and they were all really fun. There were 3 puzzles of the body. I think the hardest one was about the brain. There was also a memory game, a light box to look at x-rays with, a thermal camera, a skin magnifier, a ten year age machine, 2 pig lungs but one had been treated like a smokers lungs, a multi-tasking game and a activity which you can hear people’s lungs with it. It was a really good experience and I’m really glad they came up.

Glasgow Science Centre on Tour – Disgusting Digestion

On Wednesday 2 people from the Glasgow Science Centre came to talk to us about digestion. They also talked stages of when you eat and where it goes. I learned about the oesophagus and the peristalsis muscles in your throat. Then one of the people made a mixture of all the meals they had in a day, we got to squeeze the bag and it was squishy and cold!

After our presentation we got to experiment with the stations they brought up. There were games, puzzles and a light box and more. My favourite thing was probably the thermal camera, the memory game and the multitasking game.

Jennifer and John’s Lambing Shed

This morning we walked down to see the ewes and lambs in Jennifer and John’s lambing shed; they have been very busy for the last few nights as there have been ewes they have had to help lamb and a lot of twins! These lambs were born during the night or this morning. On the walk back to school we saw a ewe which had just given birth to twins in the park.

Glasgow Science

my favourite machine to look at was the Ten Year Time machine it showed you your face if you smoked in ten years time. I don’t want to get wrinkles on my face so I am not going to smoke or drink.  I i liked when we put all thy things into the brain.

Hinduism

We had learned about Hinduism. We made our own gods. Me, Phoebe, Emer and Alice did Vishnu. We looked at research about Vishnu. Me, Emer, Alice coloured Vishnu blue and Phoebe did Vishnu’s Jewellery and Golden Dress. We also did the story of Rama and Sita. We put together the story in the right order. We had to decide what we were going to do. We made a puppet show. We made puppets. I made Rama and the king. Sonia made the script for the Puppet show. Then Rosie filmed the Puppet show.
