Goodbye Stanley

This week we wrote letters to our friends and family asking them to take Stanley on an exciting adventure. As he is flat we were able to pop him in an envelope and send him in the post – just like in the book!

Where in the world is your Flat Stanley heading?

Let’s go fly a kite

We worked in a small team or pair to make these kites after reading Chapter 3 of Flat Stanley where he becomes a kite himself.

How did you make your kite?

Did it fly?

Scottish National Gallery

Today the class visited the Scottish National Galleries. We had this brilliant opportunity thanks to a budding artist in the class – Ailee who won 2nd Place in Catergory B in the Tesco Bank Art Competition 2014. Her art work will feature in a special exhibition in the gallery from 7th June till 28th October. It will also be part of a calendar featuring all the winning works which will be for sale in the gallery shops and will be posted to every school in Scotland this autumn. Well done Ailee!

Mummifying Fruit – The Results!

After a whole week we were finally able to check the results of our science experiment. We had to look closely at the fruit in cup 1 then empty the salt and baking soda out of cup 2 and look closely at the fruit inside. We also had to weigh both pieces of fruit again. We then compared the results with our predictions.

What did we discover?

Did the salt and baking soda mixture help to preserve the fruit?

Did we get the same results for all the different kinds of fruit?

Did the fruit slices weigh more or less?

Science Week: Mummifying Fruit

As part of our science, technology and enterprise week we decided to investigate the ancient Egyptian tradition of mummification. We wanted to find out if a mixture of salt and baking soda, similar to the ancient Egyptians ‘natron’ would help to preserve a piece of fruit.

We cut and weighed our slices of fruit, put one in cup without the mixture and we covered the other piece with the mixture and put both at the back of our classroom. We will look again at our cups in one week to see if the preservation has worked.

Ancient Egypt Beebot Mats

 photo Fotor032815456_zpsc7f19986.png
We worked in our new cooperative learning groups to create these Ancient Egypt Beebot Mats. We had to include a DANGER square and lots of interesting places and thing’s we’ve learned about Ancient Egypt so far.

Next we had to set each other the challenge of programming Beebot to go from one sqaure to a different square without getting caught in the DANGER square.
