We know we have not posted in a while, sorry, busy learning 😉
We worked in pairs to do research on an area of Space that we found interesting, we then created fact sheets about what we had learned.
In small groups we used junk to build model space probes, these were all named and then we shared them with each other. We also started to compare the planets, looking at things like size, composition, temperature etc.
With Mrs Tulloch we used cookies to recreate the phases of the moon- these smelled lovely. We then completed a meteorite investigation on the impact these have when they hit the moon.
Last week was our first assembly, it was on Space. Half of us were in the cast and everyone else was in the choir and backstage crew. We made planets, the sun, a rocket, a USA flag, an alien, stars and a few constellations. We all worked really hard on this and Mrs Baillie and Mr Wells said it was great. Our next assembly is on Friday 3rd November.
As part of our homelearning lots (and lots) of us made cakes that had a weather or space theme, these were delicious.
This week we started doing a comparison on Scotland and a country affected by Hurricane Maria or Irma. We will finish this after the holidays.
Both classes created writing based on Autumn and P5b made some Jackson Pollock inspired paintings.
We have now had 3 sessions with Rock Band- WE LOVE THIS! We have 2 sessions left, which we are looking forward to. Some of the beats were tricky but we all had a go and sounded great.
This week we have rehearsed all the songs for our Autumn Assembly and most of our parents came along to chat with Mrs Law and Mrs Newton.
Holidays are now here, have a great week off. We are back on Tuesday 24th October 🙂
P.S. Anyone who is in Edinburgh tomorrow or Sunday can watch our Quidditch Coach, Kieran Newton, take part in the Highlander Quidditch Tournament. It is at Inverleith Park from 10am until 4pm on both days.
