Primary 7 – 27.2.15

Topic – This week in our ‘Natural Disaster’s topic, we did two experiments, one about hurricanes and one about earthquakes. We used glitter, water, water bottles, lemonade and digestive biscuits for our experiments. We were surprised by our results!

P3’s assembly – We really enjoyed P3’s assembly, all about ‘The Egyptians’, it was very entertaining and we loved the songs.

Writing – We wrote and read our own imaginative stories to our buddies in P1.

P5 Viking Runes

P5 have been learning about Viking Runes.

Viking runes are letters from the Viking alphabet.  Some Viking letters shared the same symbol, like the letters I and J or U, V and W.  Vikings could only carve straight lines, not curves.  Some of our letters look similar to their letters!

P5 made clay rune stones using the Viking alphabet.

P6 Highland Warrior

P6 have been working hard on their project “The Jacobites”.  For part of their studies, they were given the task of producing a life-size Highland Warrior.  Each table group chose a specific task – to produce an element of his body, clothing or weaponry.  As you can see, (together with Tommy’s face printed out for the head),  he looks quite realistic.  Well done P6!

Nursery 23rd February

Last week was very busy in the nursery, after our break we came back on Pancake Day. We made eggless pancakes for everyone to enjoy, they were yummy!

It was also Chinese New Year, we have read the story about the animals and we have been watching a DVD about Chinese traditions. We also had noodles for snack which we loved! The children have also designed and painted a Chinese dragon which we will be showing around the school this week. In the construction area Alexander built the “Great Wall of China” out of lego bricks which inspired other children to join in.

We are continuing to develop this topic this week, check for further updates.

Please look at the floor books for more indepth information.
