Primary 5

John Muir – Week 2/3 P5a.

The last couple of weeks have been busy again with two more successful and mostly dry trips to Holyrood Park. Over the past two sessions we have learned about the history of Arthur’s Seat and why it looks how it does now and how different types of rocks are formed, such as sedimentary and igneous. We also got creative and used the resources available to us outdoors to design what our own national parks would look like. Some of them included Jungle gyms, animal petting areas and even cafes where you could collect a free mug! Of there was also no littering allowed as we discussed the importance of keeping our parks and environment tidy as we helped the rangers pick up litter around the park!

A busy week in P5a!

This week we were lucky enough to go on two different trips. On Tuesday we made our first visit to Holyrood Park to take part in the John Muir award. We made wooden name tags, sketched pictures of Arthur’s Seat and renamed some different plants and flowers!

On Thursday we visited Dynamic Earth to take park in their Polar Regions workshop and take a tour. We learned about differences between the Arctic and Antarctic, different problems facing the Polar regions and what animals could be found there. During the tour we enjoyed our 3D flight, finding out how to treat a snakebite and going on a journey through the Arctic!

This week we had a lot of work to do in preparation for our class assembly. We made posters, practised our lines and made sure we were organised and knew where we were meant to be when we performed!

We have it our all and really enjoyed performing to the school and all the adults who came to watch. Thank you for coming to see what we have been learning!
