Working Together in P2

Primary 2 R/D and the P2 children from P1/2 joined together to work on Venn diagrams. They looked at where they thought some fruit and vegetables came from and wondered if some of our imported food could be grown here in the UK.                                          Next week they will use their home learning to support their ideas.                                                                             .









Note taking in P2R/D

Primary 2 watched a video on the animals in the Amazon Rainforest.  They took notes so that they could write them up later.

We know everyone  enjoyed sharing in our learning experience today. We loved Science Week and our Showcase.

Mrs. Kellas would like to take this opportunity to thank Alistair Grant, a Science lecturer at Edinburgh University for his continued support. His guidance and practical skills have enabled numerous school projects to be undertaken over the past 3 years.

Finally I would like to thank all the staff and the children for their enthusiasm and commitment throughout Science Week. It was a pleasure to see pupils and family members engaged in educational discussion and having fun.
