Blair and I have been learning about straight angles, right angles, obtuse angles and acute angles. Jasiu and I have understood what an obtuse angle is.So for example an obtuse
Angle is a wider angle than a right angle but less than a straight angle.

This week in P1/2,we chose activities from the maths tray to help us with our number work. We did adding questions for the maths challenge.

THE GREAT NAPPY CHALLENGE!

We were testing which brand of nappy would absorb more water ASDA’s nappy or pampers. We tested this by getting a tray and a big jug filled with water and a little jug. With the little jug we kept filling it with 100ml to do the experiment.

dinosaur tig

We played dinosaur tig on Wednesday afternoon in our football taster session. It was like
we went back in time, we had to dodge aliens and rocks in the games. I really liked it. As part
of the game we had to look after an egg and we called ours ‘George from the Jungle.’

Renewable Energy Experiments

In p5/6/7 We have been doing renewable energy experiments. The renewable energies were Solar and Hydro. We found out that Solar was a better energy source to Hydro because Solar made a lot more energy.

What is happening in P4/5 and p5/6/7

P4/5

In p4/5 we have been writing stories about characters. In our stories there is a villain and a hero that has a power. When we write our stories we have to make them interesting.

P5/6/7
Two people came into our classroom from Community Wind power. They talked about Hydro Power (which is water from rivers coming and making electricity.) Wind Turbines, Wave Power. It was very interesting.

Robert Burns Day

At West Barns Primary we had a Burns supper that includes haggis, neeps and tatties and we also sang songs like Ally bally, Auld Lang Syne and the three crows.

Blairs and Jasius setting work

Blair and I have been learning how to write a setting for our imaginary stories. We had to use lots of descriptive language to make it interesting when we use our knowledge when writing our story. Jasiu and I have been learning about how to use adjectives to make our stories interesting for the reader.
