The children in Primary 4 had a great afternoon meeting Calum from “Cool Creatures” who introduced them to a range of animals from the classification groups they have been studying. All the children were given the opportunity to handle “Brave” the meerkat, “Max” the tortoise, “Ellie” the armadillo, some millipedes and finally the giant Burmese Python. They also got the chance to see “Jeremiah” the dwarf bullfrog who kept trying to jump across the room looking for dark places to hide. As you can see from the videos everyone had a fantastic time putting their animal science skills to good use working out which animal group each of the visitors belonged to. Well done everyone, our next step will be looking at popular pets from each group with hopefully more visitors to class next term.
Good Vibrations was an interactive show which followed two friends as they discovered how to create their own music.
With the help of the children their journey began by exploring sound; what it is, how it’s produced and how to make different sounds.
They then finished their exploration by looking at how modern technology allows us to vary and make sounds by creating a piece of music with the class.
