More science week activities. We got an opportunity to create our own circuits. We discovered how buzzers work, where wires go and what happens when you use lots of batteries or lamps. We worked on this for 1 and a half hours. Science is fun!
Today as part of our week of science events we had a visit from Generation Science. We learned about our bones, digestion and circulation, It was such good fun.
At science club this week (and next week) we are taking part in knex challenges. We are making ferris wheels, cars that move, windmills, swings and helicopters. Jasmine and Ailsa (Our DGS S6 students) have also agreed to continue helping run the science club, letters will be sent home soon. Next week is the last week of this block of science club.
Today’s after school science club has been cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We have attempted to phone all parents/carers to inform them of this cancellation.
Cars were travelling too fast down the ramp and were disturbing play in a different area. We designed ramps and devices to slow the cars down. We found out about friction. We discovered that the slope of the ramp makes cars slower or faster so we need to do some more investigations next week. We love being scientists!
Today on our in-service we’ve been finding out more about Scotland’s schools intranet, Glow.
We were impressed by some of the new Science video resources, which look useful to us.
The 2 P6 boys who won the class competition attended the cluster final at Sandersons Wynd Primary School to compete for a place in the national competition. The boys designed a windmill with gearing inside. Although they persevered and worked really hard we were pit at the post. They were a credit to the school. Fantastic Effort!
