This afternoon Primary 7 did something a little bit different for their assembly / show of learning. They split into four groups to explain about all the things that they were finding out about in Block 1. Each group split into two teams to make display boards and explain all about Pneumatics, Electricity, Enterprise and John Muir. The school split into their Focus Friday groups and parents joined the teams to visit each of the four workshops.
Toby did a fantastic job of timekeeping to keep us all on track, and everyone seemed to find their way from group to group.
After that, Primary 7 played a short piece from the beginning of their Radio Scotland Junior Historians show, that they made in the autumn. And finally Drew played a ‘Thank you for listening’ film that he had made using his drone.
The Primary 7s really enjoyed doing their assembly like this and said that it was a lot more fun and they enjoyed speaking to smaller groups and doing lots of activities. Ms Scanlan was very proud of all of them and hopes that the audience were too. Well done P7s!
Today we started to find out about electricity. We used the equipment that Ms Scanlan received from her SSERC science training last year. We found out about how circuits work, so that we could light a lamp and we found out about electrons.
This afternoon we continued on with our energy topic by looking at how pneumatic systems work.
We used two syringes, some tubing, a burger box, a paper cup and a pipe cleaner. We have made our model and they all open and close using pneumatics. We just need to paint and decorate them…watch this space!
On 6th November, Emma Chittick came to P7 to start our renewable energy topic. We talked about the difference between renewable and non renewable energy, saw how turbines generate energy and were given the equipment to make our own turbines.
