In maths we did an investigation about pattern. We made pyramids using cups and had to work out what the pattern was. We were really good at it!
Then we made the biggest pyramid we could. The big class came to look and were really impressed!
Look at all the pyramids we have made!

Today we experimented on 4 different rocks to find out which one would make the best pyramid. We tested them in water and rubbed them with sandpaper to see if they would stand up to the Orkney weather! Most of us thought red sandstone was the best. P2 and P3 recorded their results in a table, well done!

We made our own shadufs. Shadufs were used by the Ancient Egyptians to get water from the Nile.

This week we are learning about farming in Ancient Egypt. We used the sand tray to make the River Nile and made it flood into the canals we built to irrigate the fields!

We have been having lots of fun learning about Egyptians! Thank you to Guille for lending us the pyramid and boat!
P1s made their own pyramids too

We have been learning about the Water Cycle. We used a lamp to be the sun. When we put ice on top of the box the water vapour condensed into clouds and we made rain!

Today some of the children had some good ideas for things they could do in ILT.
Some children made a suitcase and then took it on a journey!
In maths today we were learning about heavy and light things so some children weighed the dinosaurs in ILT. There were quite a lot of dinosaurs to weigh! Miss Clements was very impressed with how well the pile of dinosaurs stayed up too!
