This term, Primary Seven have been connecting with electricity! We have been working in partnerships to construct a simple circuit, adding a switch and a buzzer, and then making our own version of a sensor pad.
We also have been learning about Victorian Transport and have discovered the history of the sailing ships which crossed the world in the 1800's to deliver wool to Australia and then to return with expensive cargo of tea. We have been composing diary entries of a sailor working on one of these ships and then have been using ICT to present and display our work in the classroom.
Mrs Sloan's P7 have been busy working on their Plastics, Lowry Paintings and Victorian Transport. They have also been busy working on their portraits comparing their baby pictures and their up to date pictures.
Bees Are Amazing!
Did you know, there are about 25,000 types of bees in the world, with probably more species awaiting discovery?
Were you aware that most species are solitary, that males cannot sting, and that collectively, they help to pollinate an estimated one third of all the food we eat?
Primary 7 have been learning about bees and how we can help them...
Take a look at the photos when we enjoyed tasting some honey on toast! The class have enjoyed learning all about bees and how important they are as well as designing honey posters and labels and honeycomb printing! It definitely has left them buzzzzzzing!!
Primary 7 pupils spent the day exploring electric circuits, pulleys, wheels, axles and bearings to make their own electric pulley buggies.
