P4 Generation science workshop

P4 had fun recently at the Generation Science workshop.

Pupils learnt how to programme and debug Lego robots. They had to consider which directions they would have to give the robot to make it move around the course and avoid objects.

All pupils were able to join in and found this a very motivating way to combine maths, science and technologies. Some pupils shared their previous experience with programming and built on this by giving the robots more complicated instructions.  We will be building on this experience by continuing learning about coding, algorithms and debugging through the programme Scratch in March.

P4 Dinosaur Invasion

To start our topic (which was chosen by the pupils) we discovered there had been an invasion after lunchtime.

Tables and chairs were knocked over into what looked like a big hole or nest. There were large footprints which the pupils thought belonged to a dinosaur.  But where were the dinosaurs?

Our topic title is ‘What happened to the Dinosaurs?’  through which we will learn about different natural disasters, pupils will then use this information and the evidence they gathered from the invasion to create a news report on what they think happened.
