We had a great afternoon being creative and designing our own space suits. We then took it in turns to put them on and try out our best Moon walking.
The dark nights are rolling in so it is very important to stay safe and be seen on the roads. This afternoon P5D had some very in-depth discussions about road safety. Click on the link below to access more useful information, stories and games from the Tales of the Road website.
We have been learning about how volcanoes are formed. Pupils in P5D made lovely volcano models yesterday and enjoyed watchig them erupt.
The Primary 5 York information evening will be on Thursday 13th October 2011 from 6.30pm – 7.30pm in the hall.
Hope to see you there
Yesterday P5D made fantastic plasticine models of the Earth . Can you identify the different layers?
Today everybody in P5D had a great time learning a song and dance about the structure of the Earth. If you would like to listen to the song at home ( and of course show off your dance moves) you can click the link below and click on the yellow symbol.
Alternatively you could have a look at the layers of the Earth rap via the link below.

Comet Hale Bopp amazed watchers on its last approach near Earth in 1997.
Comets are often called “dirty snowballs” because the solid center of a comet, called a nucleus, contains rock particles trapped in frozen liquid. As a comet moves closer to the Sun, the heat from the Sun turns the outer ice into gas and the solid parts are released as dust. These gas and dust particles trail the comet in the form of a tail.
Here is a poster showing all the stars that can be seen from the Southern Hemisphere.
