Primary 4 Blog 12-02-15
This week we have been learning a lot about birds and Celts. We have been talking about and preparing our assembly. We are feeling nervous and excited at the same time.
We learned about where the Celtic tribes lived in Scotland and their names. We watched an interactive video about how to build a roundhouse. Then in groups we had a timed challenge to work in a team to build a roundhouse for our Celtic families. We used Shredded Wheat, straws, paperclips, cardboard, material, glue and other bits and bobs to build it. We had to measure, put our ideas together and change our plans. We thought it was a lot of fun.
In maths we were doing Area, we had to make shapes of 4cm2 and 6cm2.
During UNICEF day of change we learned about what it all meant and what children would need straight after an emergency.
We had a visit from the SSPCA and learned about how they rescue animal and birds that are in danger in Scotland.
We also had another visitor this time from Linlithgow library she was telling us how to get onto Junior Encyclopaedia Britannica. This was a good site to use because it was child friendly, safe and appropriate for children, correct information and up to date. We also had fun with a Harry Potter name generator.
We hope you have a happy holiday.
