A few of us completed our pneumatic burger box models below!
More fantastic finished models to follow!!!
P5/6A have been extremely lucky to be involved in some super music lessons where they will learn to play an instrument in an up and coming concert.
This week some of us tried out the trombone. Each week a different group will try out a different instrument.

Enjoy your February break!
This week at Science Club we were learning about why some objects sink in water and why other objects float. As a starter, we watched a SGI version of the Titanic ship sinking and why one side of the ship started sinking first . We carried out a class experiment and made predictions if the objects would float or sink.
The children then had to work in teams or individually to create their own floating device. Here you can see the children hard at work!
We had lots of fun finding if our creation could float! We all made predictions first and we all enjoyed being right.
The Science Club members were very proud of their creations and wanted you see them too!
I hope everyone enjoys the holiday and we will start back for more fun on Tuesday 20th February.
P5/6 had a fantastic Science workshop led by Mrs Sherard from SERC.
We learned about pneumatic and hydraulics in a practical, fun way. It taught us a lot more about solids, liquids and gases.
We added water to our system to make a hydraulic system which we had to bleed and test.
Mrs Sherard showed us a model bat whose mouth opened and closed with a simple pneumatic system.
P5/6 have produced some amazing homework based on their Titanic topic.
Bailey and Ryan had a quick draw Titanic lesson to win a prize.
Orla prepared the most amazing Iceberg cupcakes to decorate in class.
Mrs Abraham really enjoyed eating her cake!
Then we shaped and placed blue icing on top for the sea.
We then used a tool to cut white icing into an iceberg shape to place on top of the sea.
