In Numeracy, the children are learning all about nets of 3D shapes. First of all, the children were given out a variety of correct and incorrect drawn nets. They had to predict whether they thought the net would fold up to become a cube. The children then used square shaped clixi or magnets to explore the different nets and test out whether or not they worked. The majority of the class had predicted very accurately! The children have also sorted through 3D shape matching activity. Each 3D shape name had to be matched with the formed 3D shape and the net. The children had lots of fun doing this and it really tested their knowledge of nets and the 2D shapes within a 3D shape.

Primary Health Science Conference

ActivitiesPosted by Ms Elliott Tue, May 23, 2017 03:58PM
We had a fantastic day at the Primary Health Science Conference at Queens University. The 4 children that presented our investigation to over 300 people did such a brilliant job! Dylan was the lucky volunteer that carried out an exploding science experiment in a laboratory at Queens University. We had chips, chicken goujons and burgers for lunch in the back garden of the Great Hall in the beautiful sunshine. All children will receive a certificate to show their participation in this project and these will be presented by Mrs Clarke in assembly.

This morning, P5/6 had fun planting the pansies and marigolds into the newly built Polytunnel. We can't wait to see how they look in a few weeks time.

Today for Numeracy, the children were estimating the weight of a variety of classroom objects. There were 3 groups weighing these objects and each child recorded the actual weight in grams on individual charts. Once the estimations and actual weights were recorded, the children then calculated the differences between the two. The children had estimated very realistically and a number of children estimated correctly!

Science investigations

ActivitiesPosted by Ms Elliott Mon, April 24, 2017 04:51PM
Today in the Primary 5/6 classroom, we had Professor Elliott join us for his last visit before the trip to Queens University. The children were investigating and testing the levels of fat in different food types. Each group were given 5 food types and were told to place them on labelled, brown paper bags. The children recorded their observations after 10 minutes and then 40 minutes based on the greasy spots produced by the food. We evaluated that the butter had the greatest amount of fat and the banana had the least amount of fat. It was lots of fun! Notes about the trip to Queens University will be given out before the end of the week.
