P2A have been learning all about food chains this week. We have discovered that all food chains start with the sun and its energy and then move through a variety of different plants or animals. We had great fun demonstrating these chains by making masks to show the sequences. We even shared what we had learned with other classes at today’s assembly. A great job P2A.
P7A recently had a visit from some students from Edinburgh University as part of the Get Protected programme aimed at increasing awareness of how important it is to protect your brain, especially when cycling. The children appeared to learn lots throughout the workshop so hopefully we see more helmets on heads as they cycle/scoot to school in the morning!
Our nursery class are taking part in National Outdoor Classroom Day 2017. We are toasting marshmallows, cooking in the mud kitchen, making giant artwork and relaxing in the chill out tent! We love learning outdoors!
P2A have been learning about the moon rotating around the earth and how it looks different at various times of the month. We have been finding out that the moon does not have its own light and we can only see the moon because the sun lights it up with its rays.
Today we demonstrated what the phases look like by icing biscuits in yellow and grey to represent full moon, new moon, crescent moon etc.
Once we were done, what did we do? Eat them of course!
