Did you see a few mad scientists in school today?🔎
Time to put on our lab coats!
#Q1. What happens when a liquid becomes a solid?
First we carefully measured out water and
then we added it to the glue.
Next we stirred and we stirred and we stirred!
Finally we added Borax to make SLIME!

February- Our theme is It's All Greek to Me!
We don't know a lot about Ancient Greece
at the start of our theme but we have a lot of questions to ask!
Watch out! Medusa is about! 🐍
January- Our theme is Animal Magic!
Look at our chalk and charcoal animal symmetry drawings!
A Stitch in Time - we are making animal hand puppets!
We sorted animals for features we can see.
The sets can also overlap!
Sorting animals is also called classifying.
Now we will find out about MR FAB.
M (mammals) R (reptiles)
F (fish) A (amphibians) B (birds)
We found out about the life cycle of frogs! 🐸
Then we made our own Jumping Frogs using a clothes peg!
Who was the best jumper?
Can you spot the animals in our Animal Tangrams?
Odd Socks Day!
Just like us... we are all different. And we are all equal!
(September- December) Our theme is Time to Move
We tried to arrange the toys in chronological order -
there was a lot of discussion!
How do our toys move?
We examined our toys to see what helps them to move.
We can make many things move by pushing and pulling!
How many can you think of?
Healthy Bodies move better!
We looked at the amount sugar we should be eating. For 7-11 years old it is 6 teaspoons (24g) per day. We looked at food labels and discovered that some foods have a lot of hidden sugar!
We decided to investigate the effect of sugary drinks on our teeth.
We used eggshells as they are a similar material to the enamel on our teeth.
It's thumbs down for Coke and Boost!
Thumbs up for water and milk.
Do you know for how long you should brush your teeth?
2 minutes! Watch as we had a go!
And the results? A sparkling white smile!
When animals move to a warmer country it is called migration.
We went to Castle Espie to find out more!
Thousands of Brent geese fly from Arctic Canada
to Iceland to Strangford Lough.
The geese love to eat eel grass!
How many can you name?
Our visit to Castle Espie was the best day ever!
We have been thinking about how our bodies grow and change over time.
We have grown since last year. So we wondered...
Who will grow the most this year?
So we measured our heights.
We will do this again in June so that we can discover who has grown the most.
We also predicted who will grow the most ... What is your prediction?
Personal hygiene is a problem for Dirty Bertie!
But not for us! We made our own handwash!
Look at our chalk Self Portraits! Miss Rooney thinks we are all artists - just like Picasso!
This was a difficult jigsaw- but we didn't give up!
We love to make things that move!
During Activity Time we enjoy a challenging game!
We wondered ... Who has the biggest feet in P4c?
To find out we arranged ourselves in order of shoes size!
Guess what we found out... the tallest children have the biggest feet! And the shortest children have the smallest feet!
IT IS FUN BEING A SCIENTIST!
We examined a range of footwear.
We looked at the material it was made from and how this can help us to move.
Then we decided to sketch the footwear.
We used charcoal and artist pencils (2B) !
Miss Rooney is very proud of us because we were able to take turns and share equipment!
Teamwork makes the dream work!
Grow in Love is our Religion programme.
This month we are finding out about Jesus.
He performed many miracles. He used his hands to heal.
We pray that we may use our hands to help others too!
We blessed our hands.
