# Primary 1n Floating and Sinking

We have been learning all about water. Today we were scientists, investigating ‘floating’ and ‘sinking’ through different experiments.

We made predictions on whether or not everyday classroom items would float or sink and tested them in water to see if we were right.

In pairs, we constructed our own tinfoil boats and watched to see if they would float. We even added weight on to the boats to see if they could stand up to the test! We loved being scientists for the morning. 🙂

# P1n Maths Outside

Today we have been learning how to use  – and = signs in written subtraction sums.

It was such a lovely Spring morning, so we did so with chalk outside!

# P1 Teddy Bears’ Picnic

Yesterday was a special day, it was Pancake Day and our Teddy Bears’ Picnic day!

# Primary 1 Chinese New Year Party

We had a fantastic time at our Chinese New Year party this afternoon.
