Club Golf

Catherine Johnson from Active Schools is working with us on Club Golf, it was great!

Making bread

In science we have been learning about micro organisms and we used yeast to make bread. The younger ones made some too with us and it was delicious!

Scottish Dancing

We have been making up own dance in PE. We learned some traditional Scottish dances and then used the parts we especially liked to make our own dance. You can see our dance by clicking here.

Rangoli patterns for Diwali

We designed Rangoli patterns with rotational symmetry.

Orcadian Dialect

We have been trying to learn more about the Orcadian Dialect as we think people should use it more. Pupil Council have made it one of their targets too. We have created an Orkney words display (P1 - 3 liked our work so much they wanted to do some too). Can you guess what the words mean? Lift the flaps (if you're in school; it's a bit tricky on the web) to find out....

We have also had Councillor Harvey Johnson helping us - he presents the Radio Orkney word game Wassigo and went through some Orkney poems with us.

Music Compositions

We have been creating sound effects and working together to make compositions for Halloween and Bonfire Night.

Stick chain reactions

We have been learning about how energy is stored. We learned how to make a chain stick reaction - they were really impressive!

Art

We have been doing art in the style of Keith Haring. We used small black lines to show movement.

African clay masks

We have been making masks - aren't they great?

Heart experiments

We have been experimenting to find out why the heart beats at different rates when exercising and when at rest.
