This wonderful piece of art was produced by Magnus using charcoal and is on display at the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness at the moment. How exciting! It is part of an exhibition called 'Peedie Pier', which features work by children from schools all over Orkney.
We 'Rocked Up In Red' to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and to raise awareness of what they do and how we can all help ourselves to keep our hearts healthy.
We have been skipping every Friday this term and we are working towards a sponsored skip at the end of March. Everyone has tried individual skipping, paired skipping and long rope skipping. There are lots of really good skippers in our class and they are able to show us lots of fancy techniques and fun rhyme games. We have been seeing how many skips we can do in a minute and a half and some people have more than doubled their totals in just two weeks! Everyone's skipping and stamina are improving.
Here are some photos of our last long rope session.
Today we learned about solids. liquids and gases and....oobleck! Is it a solid or is it a liquid? Well, it depends. It's a non-Newtonian solid. Rather than heat energy turning it from solid to liquid it reacts differently if you apply pressure slowly or quickly. Try to grab it quickly and it feels solid but touch it slowly and the particles have time to slide out of the way and it feels like liquid.
