P5 News and Home Learning w/b 20th March.

We had been very busy in P5 last week celebrating and undertaking experiments in class for Science Week. On Monday we looked at the Phases of the Moon, Tuesday we started to conduct our Mouldy Bread Experiment which we used to write instructions for and to predict what we thought would happen when using hard and liquid soaps to sanitise our hands before touching the bread. We will be returning to look at the results this week. We also investigated the connection between flowers and water by dying the water different colours and we have watched over the week the carnations slowly change colours. On Monday we had launch assembly for Science Week with Generation Science all about the body, heart, lungs, digestion, blood circulation and whole host of other areas of the body that help us function. In PE P5 have been learning Badminton skills with Mr Madine and Mr Humphreys.

This week we have swimming on Monday at Abbeyhill, please remember swimming hat, costume and towel and Ukulele with Malcolm on Monday morning. This will Mr Humphrey’s last week with us so we plan to pack lots of outdoor work and art into the week.

I have attached below a copy of the home learning for week beginning 20th March which will be sent home on Monday to be returned on Friday for self correction and discussion.
