Primary 7 children were learning about the Earth’s structure and were able to explain the structure and create a model of this. They learned about the properties of each of the five layers of the structure and as a result of this would like to investigate volcanoes and what causes a volcano to erupt. We agreed we will do this through an experiment and research.
Today we also researched the natural materials we get from the Earth’s surface and their uses. We will continue this next week also.
Primary 5/6 have been learning about the structure of the Earth and the layers it is made up of. They then made a model of this and were able to label it and explain its structure.
Primary 2/3 children have been exploring and investigating the properties of different materials we find in our everyday lives e.g. plastic, chalk and stone. We then were able to classify these into natural and man made materials.
“I learned that some materials are natural e.g. wood, rock and stone.” Martin
” I learned that some materials are man made e.g. metal, plastic and glass.” Callum
“Glass is made from sand.” Nikolay
“I learned that metal is man made.” Lucas
“Most plastic objects float.” Hollie
“If the objects have got air in them it floats easily.” Martin
“Things that are light will float e.g. plastic bottles and plates.” Thomas
