P3 Lifecycles Walk

Primary 3 went for a walk along to Dedridge Pond on Friday morning to see the swans that are currently nesting on the small island. The female swan (pen) had built her nest in the centre and the male swan (cob) was protecting them. He was very good at protecting the nest as he was very busy chasing the ducks away! The female swan was sleeping when we arrived but woke to say hello just before we left. We also spotted lots of birds nests during our walk. We are planning to go back to visit again once the baby swans (cygnets) are born.

P3 Probability

We investigated probability in Maths. Probability is the chance that something will or won’t happen. We thought that because there were 6 faces on a dice, if we rolled it 6 times each face should be rolled once (1/6 chance). However, this was not the case!! We all had different results, usually with one number being rolled most times. We thought about why this happened and came up with some things to think about, such as the starting position of the dice, the force we used to roll it, the surface it landed on and whether the edges were curved or straight. It was great fun!

Primary 3 Museum Trip

 

Primary 3 visited the National Museum of Scotland on Thursday. We wanted to learn more about the Celts, the Romans and find out how we know about their existence and lives. In our workshop we translated some Latin words to find out what the Celts 1500 years ago could see from their village. It was important to establish where they were likely to have been before we went on an archaeological dig! We then used maps to work out where the settlements were. At one of the sites we did a soil analysis, at the other we used a metal detector then carefully dug for artifacts. We found some amazing things!!! We then had to work out what each of the replica Celtic objects were – we had great fun trying to use them for different things! Afterwards, we went for a tour of the Celts Exhibition where we were able to see the real versions of the artifacts we had handled. In the afternoon, we had a Romans box where we had to use our detective skills and imaginations to work out what we had – some of these were real! We worked out all but two of the items. Mrs Jones also found out that Primary 3 pupils like putting things on their heads to work out what they are!!!! We had am amazing trip and learned loads!!

Our first day back, Darren came in for the whole afternoon to teach us about labyrinths.  He explained to us that people use them for thinking and praying.  They have been used for centuries all over the world!  We made our own finger labyrinths and then we worked together to make a class labyrinth for the floor.  Everyone made a strip of things that make them happy and a strip of what makes them sad.  As we worked our way through the labyrinth, we thought about these things at every turn.  We had a great afternoon!
