Science Week Success

A huge thank you to the following people for volunteering their services and time

Proffessor Bob Kibble and 7 of his students from Edin Uni, Jill Jeans (Maggie mum), Lee Young (Edens mum), Jim, engineer extraordinaire, Rowena, Melody’s mum (nursery). 

Thanks to all the parents and carers who supported the pupils in their science endeavours and supporting their science showcase today.  Hopefully we will also win something in the National Competition with our Global, All-Terrain, eco friendly vehicles. 

Thanks to the staff for all their hard work and extra hours they put in this week to inspire their pupils.

Here are a few comments from our tickled pink, green for growth comments wall:

Science Report Tuesday

Science in classes

P1/2 used microscopes to look closely at their finger marks to see what type they are. They are making blue prints for vechiles and making strong structures from triangle shapes.

Nursery made little paper snakes and put stings on them and learnt about magnetism and sinking and floating in the water tray.

P3/4  made a K’nex model that can hold a pencil pot as well as looking at bugs that they caught in the min beast garden

Drying the pen samples

In P4567 we did some investigation when we had to find out: “Who ate all the    Biscuits?” We found out by splitting colour how to discover which pen the culprit used.  We also looked at fingerprints and matched all the staff to the culprits.  We used a microscope to find out the hairs that matched.

This morning we heard about science in the news, this happened in all the classes.

At lunch time we made paper aeroplanes there were 5 designs to choose from.  We could also play with propeller toys.
