Primary 1 took advantage of the lovely weather and went for a walk around the school grounds.

They were looking for signs of Spring as part of their Topic work so they recorded what they found, ready for discussion back in the classroom.

 

Primary 5 pupils finished their Science topic on the Solar System by making scale models of the planets. Children worked together to decorate the planets in the correct colours before arranging them in the correct order.

This morning Pre-school had an exciting time predicting what would happen in a variety of science experiments, which are highlighted below:

 Flowers in vases. We filled 6 vases with water and then added white flowers. We then coloured the water and the children talked about what might happen.

Skittles experiment. We placed some Skittles in a circular pattern on a white tray. We then added some water and watched what happened.
The Skittles made a beautiful rainbow pattern.
