WW2

We shared resources that the children had brought in.  Everyone had an opportunity to have a good look at them and talk about them to the class. 

We also had a look at the WW2 projects that have been worked on with great enthusiasm for the last 3 weeks. 

It was great to see all the effort and learn all about family members that were in the war.  Big thanks to parents for supporting your children in this project. 

I can't wait to read them all!

Hannah and her sister Lucy from P4S made an Anderson shelter with attached vegetable garden. 

Must have taken ages!  Super well done to everyone!

WEIGHT

We have been learning all about grams and kilograms.  The children had a lot of fun weighing potatoes, carrots, lentils, rice krispies and lots more stuff!  There were a few spillages but it didn't matter.  Great investigating and estimations were carried out as the children got their hands on weights and balance scales.

The Interactive Whiteboard was used for playing games where the children had to read scales. 

They even had the opportunity to visit McBride's Grocery Store to check out the weights!

Shrove Tuesday

We had great fun today making pancakes in P4. We investigated the ingredients and possible toppings, had a look at the equipment needed and the method of how to make the pancakes.  Tossing was great fun and cracking the eggs was harder than we had imagined.

Enjoy looking at how we got on and a few videos taken by the children!
