This term we are learning about Space. We met with parents to think about what we would like to find out and do and these are some of the ideas we came up with:

Here is some of the work we have been doing so far:

We have LOADS more ideas though so watch this space!

ILT  

Posted by Administrator Thursday, October 08, 2015 2:09:00 PM

In ILT (Independent Learning Time) we have been doing lots of things:

Using the big blocks

Outside learning with bamboo tubes

We had been reading a book about a Piglet Squid, and we decided to find out about other sea creatures. We wanted to make a life size whale shark so we had to research how big they are. Then we made one! It is 12 metres long!

A visit from builders 

Posted by Administrator Thursday, October 08, 2015 2:02:00 PM

One of the things we wanted to find out more about in our "Made in Orkney" topic was about the work builder do. We wrote to Darren and Barry, and they came in to talk to us about building in Orkney. We liked the laser to check things are level!

Made in Orkney... Fudge! 

Posted by Administrator Monday, August 24, 2015 4:48:00 PM

This term we are learning about things made in Orkney. It is important to try local produce and today we tasted fudge!

We had to guess what the flavours were and then vote for our favourites. Then we did some block graphs and P3 went on to do a pie chart on the computer as well.

Making toys from bruck! 

Posted by Administrator Friday, June 12, 2015 4:10:00 PM

We made our own toys from bruck - we had to make a plan and then evaluate them afterwards. What do you think?

 

ILT - with the big class and Nursery too!

Everyone had ILT together today - look at all the things we did!

We made a hotel - this is the restaurant.

Some of us played in the sand.

Some of us made models

Some of us went outside to make a hotwheels outside track (this got quite muddy but we all had to work together to manage it)
