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 have investigated how the digestive system worked this afternoon and made a model of it, which made poo.
P4 have been learning what they are really like inside and building body bibs to show their new knowledge of how their organs work.
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.
P4 have created a Class Charter for the year around the theme
“Everything is Awesome”
Pupils discussed what they would like their classroom to be like and how people should act. This was made into our class charter which we all signed and displayed on our wall.
