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 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!

Today we found a great website where we could make fireworks explode on the whiteboard! The preschool children came to play too.
Some of us have been making potions with different liquids and solids to see what happens.

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.
