This week schools across Edinburgh were taking part in the Sumdog maths challenge. Primary 4 signed up and even though many of the children hadn’t used the app before they have had a great time playing this at home and in class and got outstanding results, coming 14th of all the classes across Edinburgh!!!! I’m so proud of you all and excited for the next competition where I know we will do even better!!! A special well done to Colin who also spent most of the week in the top 50 students leaderboard ⭐️

Gummy Bears!

Our final experiment this week looks at the effect of water, salt and sugar on gummy bear sweets.

We added the bears to three different solutions (keeping a control dish too) and we then left them to see what happens. We learnt the names of some new science apparatus too – pipette and Petri dish.

Cress growing… 🌱

We have set up some exciting growing experiments in class this week and made our predictions about what will happen. We have planted 8 pots of cress and are going to give them different growing conditions to see how they get on.

The conditions they will spend the next week or so in are:

* with soil, with sunlight, with water.

* without soil, with sunlight, with water.

* without soil, without sunlight, with water.

* with soil, without sunlight, with water.

* with soil, with sunlight, without water.

* with soil, without sunlight, with water.

* without soil, without sunlight, with water.

* without soil, without sunlight, without water.

Keep eyes peeled here for our findings!!
