This week in science p7 did a terrific scientific experiment that involved dying our tongues blue to find what type of taster we are. There are 3 different types of taster which were Non-taster, Taster and Super-taster. Once we had our tongues dyed blue we counted how many fungiform papillae we had in a little space of our tongue. This was the result of our test.
- Non taster 3
- Taster 17
- Super taster 13
On Tuesday 21st we got a visit from an aero-space engineer. It was Jenni from the Lego workshop and we had prepared lots of questions for her. This was to help us with our inventions for the Scottish Engineering Award. Here are some questions we asked her:
- Q: Do you like working with Lego more than your old job?
A: I really enjoy Lego but I do miss my previous job.
- Q: What lesson in school helped you the most?
A: I think English because communication is key.
- Q: What is your favourite type of Lego to build?
A: I enjoyed building Space Lego especially rockets.
In PE we did gymnastics and circuits. We enjoyed the circuits but it was very tiring. Gymnastics was on the equipment so it was lot of fun. We are enjoying having Mrs Clapton back to teach us P.E. Mrs Johnston took us for the circuits and we did things like press-ups, sit-ups, planks and Russian twist. It was fabulous fun and we have built up strength.
