Mrs McClune’s class have spent a week building models of the Titanic! They have produced some excellent models, using a wide range of materials. There have been models made from cardboard, papier-mâché, Lego and even cake!
In addition to making good use of their crafting skills, they have learnt a great deal about the structure of the Titanic and have been able to apply their mathematical ability to calculate SCALE measures in a real-life setting.
Mrs McClune’s class has been busy conducting some science investigations this month!
Calum and Adam tried making their own butter...
Charlie made some chocolate rocks... yum!
Alex M successfully separated egg yolks from their whites using the bottle trick...
Alex R-A and Sophie Y were busy growing rainbows...
and Lucy H tried her hand at making some potions...
We have had a very busy month in P7 this November.
As part of our Flight topic, we investigated the impact surface area had the effectiveness of parachutes. We had lots of fun planning and carrying out or investigation and although our predictions were correct, we don’t think our parachutes will pass the safety inspection to be used on aircrafts!
This month we also raised money for Children in Need by wearing our spotty clothes – a favourite of ours to look forward to every year!
As part of Anti Bullying week, we looked at what makes us unique and how we can learn to appreciate others and their individuality. To showcase individuality, we took part in the Odd Socks day to show that it is good to be different. We focussed on the film “Wonder” and discussed the impact our actions can have on others.
Next up for P7, Christmas!!! Ho! Ho! Ho!
September and October
Our topic this term is Flight!
Our favourite lesson, so far, was carrying out investigations using paper helicopters. We made a helicopter using a given template and then made adjustments to the dimensions of the rotor blades, added additional weight and amended the fuselage shapes to design a helicopter that would stay in the air for the longest time.
Each group then competed against each other!
