Our next topic in P6 is `Energy’. This week we have been learning about the different forms of energy and the way that energy can be transformed from one form to another. To investigate this we will be holding an Invention Convention on 9 May and hosting our P5 guests. The task is to create an invention which is powered by one of the forms of energy that we have been learning about eg. kinetic, potential, light, electrical, chemical.
To help us get started here are some websites and ideas that you might be able to develop in your own invention. Good luck! Science Kids Alliant Energy A lemon battery Air power Water energy Solar energy
In P6 we have just completed our Victorian topic. It has been a fascinating topic as we learned about life in Britain and the Empire during the Victorian period. During the topic we learned about famous Victorians, scientists, engineers, inventors and even Darwin’s theory of evolution. We also researched Victorian objects and created our own museum which was visited by the school and our parents. Each class also travelled back in time to experience a true Victorian school day, including a visit from the strict school inspector. The topic was completed with a Victorian Murder Mystery when the classes learned about the death of `William Abbott’ and our task was to gather evidence from Victorian North Berwick and its residents. During the day we learned about how our town has changed since the Victorian period and following our day of investigation we discovered who was the murderer. Many thanks to all of the parents and witnesses who supported our topic.
Here are some memories:

On Friday 15th March P6 will be opening a Victorian museum and it will be open to visitors on that day. We are currently gathering original objects for our museum (primary sources) and are also creating other displays for the museum. The museum will be about the lives during the Victorian period; at home, at play and at work. All contributions will be gratefully received (and returned).
To help us in this task Susan Cowie visited P6 last week and helped us to think about how to plan a museum. It was a fun and informative visit.
