Discovering how to create electric circuits in P7 was great fun! We even discovered different uses for a motor by creating miniature fans.
P7 have already had a great start to the term with lots of exciting things happening. We held our very own class debate on the effects of plastic and incorporated this learning into our literacy by also creating individual simile poems describing plastic. Some believe ‘plastic is fantastic’ but others feel that ‘we should be part of the solution not the pollution’. Our poems are proudly up in our classrooms for you to look at on our annual Meet the Teacher evening. We hope to see you there!
We had a wonderful visit from the Scottish Parliament Education Outreach Team to teach us all about the Scottish Parliament. We learned about the History, roles of people in the Parliament and about the Parliament do. We even had the chance to design our own manifestos and debate the issues surrounding Social Media. We felt like real MSPs! Our favourite part was using the electronic key pads to vote and make decisions just like the MSPs do. We would like to thank Angela for making this a great learning experience for us.
