First we had to interview 3 residents about North Berwick. Then we tallied all our results as a class. After we tallied everything we changed it into bar graphs for another homework task. Then in class, we made a bar graph on the computer with Datasweet. Then we made a pie chart.

Iain Gray visited us during science week and taught P4 and P5. He mentions this lesson in a recent article he wrote for “The Scotsman”. Our pupils were complimented : “They were hugely enthusiastic and impressively knowledgeable…”
See the article below.
Four boys from Primary 5B made the tower from Lord Of the Rings in the Sensory Garden. The tower is Bar Dur. The 4 boys were Jamie Fleming, Jamie Henderson, Daniel Cunningham and Johnathan Howey.
Today Primary 5B have been out helping to conserve the Law. A huge thank you to our Parent helpers and Sam the Ranger. Here are some pictures of us hard at work.
A big thank you to all our parent/community helpers this week who have given up their time to help with our science experiments. A special mention to Bill Innes and Fiona Johnston who prepared science talks and experiments for our pupils to engage with. Thanks to the staff who have went beyond the call of duty to ensure their pupils had engaging, challenging and fun science in their classrooms, there has been such a sense of discovery and wonder this week.
Wow, what a start to science week at Law Primary. This morning Iain Gray (MSP) held 2 science workshops for the P4 & P5 pupils. He talked about waves and in particular how microwaves were discovered by accident.
P7a had the pleasure of experimenting with computer programming courtesy of ComputerXplorers http://www.computerxplorers.co.uk/ Each pupil had the opportunity to create an cartoon animation. ComputerXplorers will be offering after school club sessions after the Easter holidays (details to follow)
The Primary 1 area was buzzing with science! Children creating chemical changes which resulted in honeycomb candy(which tasted delicious) to density and air experiments. Photos to follow. It was amazing to see how even the youngest in our school were engaged with science.

The theme this year is “Invention & Discoveries”. It is a theme that gives us an opportunity to celebrate the “everyman” scientist and inventor and highlight the science and engineering behind the nation’s favourite gadgets and goods. Here at Law we are looking forward to taking part in year stage carousels, quizzes, national competitions, themed assemblies, workshops held by parents and Iain Gray MSP and a chance to be involved in a special science showcase.
The children are asked to engage with science in the home and bring back to school something they have discovered, invented, researched or made. Letters have been sent out this week. Ideas to get you started can be found below, paper versions are on the science noticeboard near the P4/5 door.
Pupils are also asked to bring in a topical news item with a science theme.
Science and engineering and its application is central to our economic future, and to our health and wellbeing as individuals and as a society. At Law we plan to help our pupils develop curiosity and understanding science and develop a lifelong interest in the sciences. We aim to make science week fun!

Pupils can come dressed in PJ’s as a way of the school saying thank you for your fundraising efforts so far. The teachers theme is “Bad Hair”.
