P3/4 had lots of fun learning about the different phases of the moon using Oreo cookies. The children worked cooperatively with a partner using the Oreos to represent the moon and to show how its appearance changes as it orbits the Earth.

We are currently learning and exploring the Curriculum for Excellence outcome:

By safely observing and recording the sun and moon at various times, I can describe their patterns of movement and changes over time. I can relate these to the length of a day, a month and a year. SCN 1-06a

We also know that the moon is called the Earth’s Lunar Satellite because of the way in which it moves around the Earth. It is not a planet and it does not shine. Instead it reflects the light from the sun.

P3/4 and P5A worked collaboratively in pairs and small teams to design and make their own fireworks safety posters for display in the school. The children all agreed that they wanted to help educate the wider school community about how important it is to stay safe this weekend when so many fireworks displays are being held in and near Musselburgh. P3/4 and P5A are definitely becoming responsible citizens and effective contributors!
