After the October holidays, P1 - P3 will be learning about weather. Today we worked together to create mind maps of what we already know.
We have lots of questions which we would like to answer next term:
How does the sun make water evaporate?
How does the sun shine?
How does the snow fall?
How are icicles made?
Why do farmers need different weather?
How is weather different around the world?
How are storms made?
How are floods caused?
How do the clouds make rain?
Where does weather come from?
What is the sun made of?
How is wind made?
How is the sea made?
How does the sun rise up when it's morning?

This term we've been finding out about our community. We've been on lots of visits to different places and we have also been updating the "Our Community" part of this website. We made a great display of some of our work, including watercolours of buildings in Shapinsay, models that the children made at home and a map showing where things are on the island.
Here we are visiting the Smithy. We had ice creams and played with the toys there.
We went upstairs to the Heritage Centre and looked at the things there.
We visited the shop too.
John and Lorna came in to visit us with the ambulance.
We went to the fire station too, and we all fit in the appliance at once!
We have been doing some typing about Shapinsay and learning how to insert photos into our work. To see our Shapinsay work please click here and go to the P1 - 3 Shapinsay Work folder.
