Class 1 sent some special post on Thursday morning. Here’s hoping their letters have arrived…
Over the past couple of days, Class 1 have learnt about and built their own dams. Pairs of children chose which materials they wanted to use and then made improvements to their structures after their first test with water.
After making flood barriers and boats, Class 1 have become very knowledgeable about the properties of different materials and reflected this in their choices.
We introduced new words such as ‘reservoir’ and ‘watertight’, but also revisited previous vocabulary like ‘absorbent’.
Great job everyone, you persevered even though this was quite a tricky challenge!
If any parents/ carers can spare any recycling materials (such as plastic bottles, cereal boxes, kitchen roll tubes, etc), Class 1 would love to use them.
We are planning on making models and will need to build up a bank of materials to choose from.
Feel free to drop these in whenever you can. Thank you in advance 🙂
Class 1 were very excited to bring in their fantastic boats which they made for homework during Science Week. Through this week, we have tested out everyone’s models by using stones to check how much weight they could carry. I have to say, the children’s boats were incredibly strong! Well done to everyone, I’m really glad you enjoyed this activity.
This Tuesday we had a very special Five Star Gold Award.
These two little superstars received their awards for some amazing fundraising for our school. After being sponsored by family and friends, Ruaridh and Daisy set a target for the number of steps they needed to achieve and they managed to raise a total of £269! On behalf of everyone at Daviot, thank you very much and we are really proud of you 🙂
Mrs Beattie also chose a special recipient for the Five Star Gold Award…the whole of Class 2! She was blown away by their fantastic efforts during our Science Week, but in particular by their amazing STEM homework.
Class 2 will receive some extra time on Friday afternoon as a special treat.
Well done to all!
Today we looked at how microbes are involved in the composting process. We used a concept cartoon to challenge our thinking before watching a video. We then set up a fair test to see how quickly chopped and unchopped products (fruit, veg, leaves and paper) would decompose. We will observe and record our findings over a few weeks.
Well done to all the children for taking part today. Everyone gave 100%.
It was a super event. Go Team Daviot!
