Today the science club were learning all about the skeleton as part of Biology Week.

Today the science Club had to design and build a tower which could hold 5 marbles in a container. They were only allowed to use 4 pieces of card, sellotape and 1 newspaper.


Well done to our junior engineers.

The science club had to design and make a parachute to protect a raw egg dropped from the first floor onto the playground. 
We used paper bags, bin bags, balloons and string. Thank goodness we had no scrambled egg.

The after school science club were learning about classification today.


To really check we understood we had to design a classification key for sweets.


An added bonus, we got to eat them afterwards.

Our P7 children are currently studying a unit on electricty as part of their World Around Us topic.


Last week Science Starz, funded by the Edina Trust came into the school to do a practical activity.
The children made a battery out of lemons. They were able to test their lemon battery usinfg a LED. They also measured the ammount of electrical energy created using a voltmeter. The children were suprised to learn that 2 lemons created more energy than 2 1.5v batteries! And just like a battery, they discovered that the voltage decreased over time as the LED used up energy. They were able to predict that if they had more lemons, they would have more energy and the LED would be brighter.
The children enjoyed the chance of being "real" scientists and the opportunity to wear a lab coat!
They are looking forward to their next electricity practical.
