The P7s have had a fun week directing their learning about America. We have compared some of our similarities and differences with Scotland, the sheer size and different time zones in the USA surprised many of us! We looked into how the ’13 Colonies became 13 States’ and learned some new vocabulary such as Congress, amendment and constitution!
We met our new Italian teacher, Valentina, and had a visit from Edinburgh University and Fife College to deliver STEM activities. Mrs Millar (the physicist) was very passionate telling us about her job working with very big and very small numbers. We learned about aerodynamics in our rocket launching lesson and about the power to move objects using positive and negative charge.
