On Monday afternoon we visited Pitcairn Lodge and sang 3 songs to the residents – Donald fars your troosers, Northern Lights of Auld Aberdeen and Scotland the Brave. Afterwards we played games with the old people. I played Balloon Tennis, Air Hockey and Four in a Row. I also had a chat with an old lady called Maureen, she was very nice and said that she once visited the Queen!
On Wednesday, we planted 500 bulbs by the fence where the field is. We had help from the Garioch Ranger to do this. We are excited for Spring to see the bulbs flowering.
We were playing games on Just 2 Easy which was great fun! One of the games was like coding and we had to get the spaceship to visit all of the planets and then return to the moon.
In PE, we played Ghost Busters and Musical Arms. Since it was St Andrews Day, we also had 500 miles playing.

Over the last two days we have been writing stories about James and the Giant Peace – the peace has even gone into New York! Next, we are going to write newspaper reports to share that the peace has landed on top of the Empire State Building!!!
In Maths, we have been learning about multiplication sums to do calculations such as 74 x 3. Some are quite hard and others less so, we are getting the hang of it!
In Science, we have been zooming in on mosquito carcases with the microscopes.
On Thursday morning, we arrived in a whirlwind due to the weather. We were chasing greenhouses, hunting for missing plant pots and using bamboo sticks/litter pickers to get pots out from under the ramp. What an adventure!
We finished the week with a fun Kahoot quiz!

On Monday, we were completing our Daily Maths workout which makes us think as it has a little bit of everything in it!
We took part in the Great Bat Flying STEM Challenge – we had to make the wings move without touching them. I put string on both wings and some in the middle so that I could pull the string and that made the wings flap.
In writing, we had to write four facts about our type of spider, my one was a fishing spider. One of my facts is: the fishing spiders hairy legs can repel water so that it doesn’t get wet!
We created spider webs out of three sticks. We had to make a structure and then wrap/weave the string around it by going over then under, over then under and on to the next one – this was to make the silk. We hung the finished webs at the top of the ramp – they look great!

We Loved Learning About Egypt
Primary 3 thoroughly enjoyed their Egypt topic. They learned about the Ancient Egyptian way of life and how it differs to their own. They carried out STEM challenges, science experiments, researched different artifacts, gods and pharaohs, made Egyptian bread, replica mummies and sarcophagi, scarab beetles, amulets, pharaoh portraits, canopic jars, papyrus paper and Tutankhamen’s death masks. They learned how to write in hieroglyphs and wrote messages to each other. They also learned the story of Moses and how he rescued the slaves from Egypt. At the end of our topic we held an Egypt’s Got Talent contest where the children had to pretend to be a god of their choice and we voted for who we thought was the best – Anubis won – god of embalming and the dead.
Friday 23rd November 2018
Primary 3 have had a fantastic time learning about Ancient Egypt and were lucky to go to the University of Aberdeen today to see their Ta-Kheru exhibition. Here we got see Ta-Kheru’s mummified body and her external coffin (sarcophagus); we learned that she had two coffins; an internal coffin and an external coffin (the lid of the inner coffin is still in Germany). We also saw what she would have looked like when she was alive and a holographic projection of what was under the bandages through technology from CT scans. As well as this we handled ancient Egyptian artifacts and made our own amulet necklaces.
