Yoga, Dookin’ and saving the planet

It’s  amazing the variety of things we get to do in P4.  We have been enjoying a taster session of yoga, dookin’ for apples as part of our Halloween celebrations and making pledges to change our behaviour to help save our beautiful planet.

P4 update

It’s been busy in P4 we have been growing our own rainforest in class, learning lots about branching databases and having fun with fractions.

Goodbye!

Thank you to all of Primary 2 (children and adults) for making my year so amazing and incredibly special. I will miss East Linton Primary School very much! Have a great summer!

P7 travel around the world in 7 weeks!!

Last week Ms Warrender visited Dunbar Grammar School to observe two maths and two English S1 classes in order to aid transition from primary school to secondary. The P7s were very surprised when Ms Warrender came back with some S1 fractions maths questions that they could solve already!

This week we completed our final Headstrong session with Maggie our school nurse. We shared our ‘happy boxes’ with the rest of the class, looking at the memories that we brought in.

Last week the P7s completed their home learning booklets on a country of their choice. Ms Warrender was amazed about the amount of time and effort that the children had put into their booklets. Well done P7!

P7 have completed their topic ‘Around the World in 7 Weeks!’ This week so have travelled to Antarctica and had a look at the different types of wildlife that live there. On Tuesday we had our international food festival, inviting the P7 parents and our P1 buddies in to sample our dishes we had made from countries around the world. Again, the P7s excelled themselves, producing delicious dishes to tempt the taste buds. Our bellies were definitely bulging afterwards! We managed to raise £60 from donations from parents that will go towards our P7 end of year party!

We completed reading our whole class novel, The Hobbit, and so have been watching The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey this week in class, comparing the similarities and differences between the book and the film.

This week we completed our stories, and produced our final drafts. We then created bunny Easter cards and decorated Easter eggs for our competition that will be judged tomorrow by Mrs Gardner.

Councillor Sue Kempson is coming in to assembly tomorrow to present us with our Level 1 certificates and then its off to church!

What a busy term for P7! We wish you all a very Happy Easter!

It’s a solid… It’s a liquid… It’s Oobleck

As part of our project on solids, liquids and gases we have been learning about their properties and sorting lots of items into their correct categories, they are either a solid, a liquid or a gas … and then along comes Oobleck to confuse the situation.    Today in P3 we were making Oobleck which can behave like a solid and  a liquid without a change in temperature.

We tested it outside by putting some in a bag and adding a fresh egg, we then dropped it from a height to see if the Oobleck would make a solid around the egg and protect it from breaking.  We managed  a drop of 2.6 metres, the egg finally broke when thrown directly at a wall.   Very messy science but great fun!
