Exploring the World of Construction with P3K and P5L!

P3K and P5L had an exciting and very interactive exploratory learning experience this afternoon when they investigated the STEM – Science, Technology, Maths and Science – construction box that has been on loan to our school as part of a science curriculum initiative. The children worked co-operatively in small teams to build walls, role play different construction jobs, use a trundle wheel for measure as well as look at a variety of books about buildings and create models with small construction kit materials. Everyone was enthused and inspired by the session. We definitely have some budding architects, builders, joiners and chartered surveyors in our midst!

Mandela Dance & Football

Primary 3 have been very South African lately, learning about different types of dances including some moves that were in the 2010 South African World Cup.

Our footy skills are coming on great too, we’re ready for even more this week!

P2/3 had a fantastic afternoon with Rebecca and Kim from Generation Science today. They were learning more about the differences between solids, liquids and gases before working cooperatively in teams to try out a selection of different experiments mixing different liquids and a special powder with each other to try to make a fizzy gas. Some combinations fizzed while others did not and we all had great fun being real scientists with our special aprons and safety goggles on. At the end Rebecca and Kim made a HUGE explosion which produced a hot fizzing orange gas, it was amazing!
