Another forces experiment!

Today we did another forces experiment. This was a catapult test! We had to stretch the elastic band back to 3 different distances and fire a cardboard missile! We then had to measure and record our results. This time we had to measure much longer distances and needed to plan carefully how to do this. All the groups were very good at planning what to do, sharing the equipment and ensuring it was fair and everyone got a turn.

Signalong in p2/3/4

We have been continuing to enjoy our weekly signalong sessions with Marie Lawson, learning the signing vocabulary for some new stories.  Everyone is very enthusiastic and we have learned lots of new signs as well as revising others.

Da Voar Redd Up

On Wednesday afternoon of 28th April, p2/3 enjoyed taking part in our school clean up of Boddam beach.

The weather seemed against us as it came heavy rain over lunchtime and was not looking to ease when we started again for the afternoon.  However we took the chance and by the time we had walked down to the beach the rain had stopped and it was warm and sunny!

Everyone worked hard and we collected 10 full bags of rubbish along with a good pile of items that couldn’t fit into bags!  And that was only from the cleaner end of the beach!  Still plenty more to collect.

More from Christmas week!

As we had been learning about 2D and 3D shapes in maths recently, on Tuesday for maths we made Christmas boxes from nets of 3D shapes-a cube and a triangular based pyramid decorated with Christmas designs.

Then on Wednesday we painted our salt dough Christmas decorations.  (Near disaster-I didn’t realise our clock had stopped and wondered why there was a bell going at 2.25pm!  We still had to tidy up and pack bags!!!!  But we made it on time. )

On Thursday we had our Christmas party which everyone enjoyed.  Unfortunately we were having so much fun and were so busy that I  forgot to take photos-Sorry!

On Friday it was pyjama day, whole school quiz and pantomine in the afternoon.  It was great and the popcorn and ice cream was very good too!

As this will be the last blog for this term, I would just like to wish everyone a very happy, safe and healthy Christmas season!
