P2HM’s Visit to Dynamic Earth

P2HM loved their trip to Dynamic Earth today. We found out all sorts of things about the weather. Take a look at some of our learning.IMG_1142

We found out that hot air rises. This is why we get wind and rain.

IMG_1146IMG_1150We used tornado bottles to find out what a real tornado looks like. We saw that the bottom of a tornado is much faster than the top.

At this time we have not made a decision to go ahead or cancel this trip. The final decision will be made on Monday morning once we know travel conditions and can make a risk assessment. In the hope that we go, could all children come prepared with warm clothing, packed lunches and their permission slip if they haven’t returned it already. Please share this message with parents of P4 children.

P7 Personal Project 2018

Yay, it’s here! volcano-clip-art-121

Today P7 were given their project information sheets.  We have stressed that this does NOT mean they have to start working during the holidays! It’s simply to give them plenty of thinking time before beginning this task after the February week.

Linked to our Japan theme, the Natural Disasters project should be a final showcase of their functional  reading and writing skills, and every pupil is expected to put effort in to this.

Here is a copy of the paperwork should yours go missing…
