This morning, Primary 4B braved the cold to help plant some daffodil bulbs at Inchview Care Home beside the school. The children worked with staff from the home to plant many bulbs into the embankment next to the school, as did some children from Liberton High School.
Very kindly, staff from Inchview provided our busy gardeners with hot chocolate and a lovely Christmas treat to take home, which the children were very thankful for.
We’re looking forward to seeing the bulbs come through in the Springtime. Take a look at our busy gardeners below!

Look at the mini tortilla wrap quiches we made in Food Fortnight with Miss Sloan they were delicious!
P4B Weekly update week ending 4/11/17
This week we have been learning about conductors and insulators. We did a fantastic job of making an electric circuit using a bulb, battery and wires. We were all delighted when we were able to make our bulbs light!
Next, we introduced an elastic band to the circuit to see if the bulb would still light. It didn’t! We proved in this experiment that elastic bands are not conductors of electricity as the bulb did not light up! We learned that elastic is therefore an insulator.
Our next experiment included a paper clip, battery, wires and a bulb. The bulb was still able to light up proving that paper clips, or metal objects, are good conductors of electricity!
Some of us experimented with the metal on our pencil cases and our metal table name holders to test this further.
