P3B have been learning about magnets

P3B spent some time learning about magnets as part of their Science work. We looked at North and South poles, attraction and repulsion and what materials in the classroom were magnetic and which were non-magnetic. We predicted first, then carried out the experiment. Lots of us got our predictions correct!

P3B Update

Primary 3B have had a busy few weeks at school.

We completed a Scavenger Hunt in the library for World Book Day. We had to look through a variety of fiction and non-fiction books to find certain characters and objects, including a frog, a bear, a queen and a character shouting.

We created some leaflets in our writing and ICT lessons to advertise Scottish castles. We used what we had previously learned and looked up more information on the laptops. Our leaflets included some facts about the castle, opening times, prices, a map and some pictures of things you might see if you visited the castle.

Finally, we performed our class assembly this morning. We worked hard over the last 2 weeks to learn some songs and create some artwork for the assembly. We used our ICT time to research Ireland, including sport stars, tourist attractions and Saint Patrick.

P3B Visit Dynamic Earth

P3B had a fantastic trip to Dynamic Earth to enhance their learning on our Science work, focusing on weather and the Sun, Moon and Earth.

We were led on a tour around Dynamic Earth, exploring how the Earth began and some of the different climates around the world. Then we completed some activities in  our Wonderful Weather workshop, where we learned more about tornadoes, thunder and lightning and the water cycle.
