Exciting Week in P5

This week has been very exciting for P5. On Monday we went to Tullos Primary School to have a go at building a bridge. We worked together as a team and successfully managed to walk across our bridge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today we were visited by Edinburgh Science Festival who brought along their planetarium. We really enjoyed the opportunity to see the planets and stars up close.

Science in P2B

On Friday we had the poisoned apple that Snow White was given in our classroom. We spoke about chemical reactions and what can happen when one occurs. Before beginning our experiment we made some predictions to discuss what we thought might happen and why. Then for the fun part, we watched to see what happened when vinegar was added to the baking powder. It was amazing to see and we all really enjoyed watching it. We had a strong smell of vinegar in our class for the rest of the afternoon but apart from that we loved learning something new.

Trip to Torry Battery

This morning P3S went on a trip to Torry Battery. We did some dolphin watching with binoculars, we learned about the harm that litter can do to sea creatures and we also went rockpooling to see if we could find any of the creatures we have been learning about In school. We learned some fanstastic facts; for example we now know that the average dolphin measures 3.7 metres long! That’s about 3 Jamie Kellas’!
