We have been learning about science and lately we have been working on sound waves. P7 have been learning about science from the beginning of term. We have been learning about sound waves and have watched a few YouTube clips. p6 have also been learning about science as well we have completed some crosswords and are in the middle of solids liquids and gases
Our topic is power. We have been to a power station at Torness, we learned about how many people made it, their sponsors, how many megawatts it produces and about nuclear power. It was really interesting!
Recently the primary 7s have been learning about science experiments and lots more facts about science. We have done experiments on bread to see if it moulds quicker if you touch it with dirty hands but the result was different as the bread moulded exactly the same. we have also done a boat experiment and we built boats made of Lego and we looked at the biggest boat and if they float or not. We also checked how much marbles you could fit inside your boat and then we checked if they floated then. Andrew Sutherland P7S
