Primary 5 have had an exciting couple of weeks.
Today the winner of our Inventors Challenge topic was announced. Congratulations to Ben and Corrin in primary 6 and Amy and Logan F in primary 5 who made up the team Building Blocks, and were the winners of the challenge! Their invention was a fantastic self-cleaning and self-heating shoe called Heatwave. Well done to all members!
PATPAL stands for Pupils as Teachers, Parents as Learners. On Wednesday we invited parents into school to demonstrate different problem solving activities and let parents have a go. We enjoyed sharing our strategies to our parents and had fun. We hope the parents enjoyed it too.
We have recently been learning about solids, liquids and gases as part of our science topic. Last Thursday, we participated in an experiment to cause an irreversible change from a solid to a liquid. We created icing by mixing icing sugar and water and used this to ice our own cupcakes. Primary 5 thoroughly enjoyed this experiment!
