Rhetorical Questions with Mr McFarlane

We have been learning about rhetorical questions with Mr McFarlane. Rhetorical questions is a question without an answer.  Mr McFarlane taught us about rhetorical questions. Yesterday we completed a project about rhetorical questions. We made a poster about something we would sell on a Christmas sale and we had to advertise it using rhetorical questions. We have worked on this for four weeks and haactivitymore-AFB57668-C544-4079-BA30-7DB3AE63D112ve thought of amazing inventions. One of our most liked ones was thought of by Maisie DJ in P7A. She had thought of a see-through toaster we thought this would be helpful to make sure that you don’t burn your toast.

There were lots of other ideas for example Katie’s idea was windscreen glasses,  it would clean your glasses. Zak’s idea was a talking snowman and it would dance, sing, tell you the time and tell you jokes! Erin’s one was about a bed for animals that could put them asleep in no time. There were also lots more great advertisements but I won’t say them all.

Thursday – Archaeology Workshop

In primary 7 we did an archaeology workshop. 

One of the lessons were you got an object [not at a real ancient object] and we got a sheet of paper with questions about the object, for example I got a golden ring and the paper had questions like… 

What is the object made of? 

Who would use the object? 

What is the object? 

Then you would draw a picture of the object. 

We also got shown tools Archaeologists would use to dig down and find there objects. 

At the second table we got shown bones, real ones, from 4000 years ago. There were sheep heads and other animals bones and relics. 

At the third table we got shown different things Archaeologists would find and different times. 

There were different ages like the bronze age and the iron age. 

Those were things ages and were they could be found but Archaeologists also find things a bit less deep and that is the surface. 

We really enjoyed the workshop and learned a lot. 

And that was our Archaeology Workshop…  


Highland Hustle

On Thursday we did highland hustle, which is highland dancing, and exercise with Mrs Gargaro it was very exciting and everybody was out of puff and felt like their faces were on fire at the end. We started off by doing a warm up followed by a low intensity dance next up we had to get in partners and we did a group dance and finally we did a high intensity dance which had leaps, skips, and jumps everybody really enjoyed it and it great exercise!

Dynamic Earth Trip

On Friday morning we were going to Dynamic Earth for a workshop on volcanoes .When we got there we were greeted by Frankie, she took us to the place there the workshop was going to happen  . When we all took our places the workshop began, first she showed us an image of the earths layers. The are the crust, where we live on, the mantle, the outer core and last is the inner core. After that we learned about the inner core. The inner core is made out of iron and nickle , we got to touch bits of an asteroid which are made out of the same material, the inner core is a solid .Secondly we explored the outer core which is made out of the same material as the inner core but it is a solid and it is much hotter. After that we learned about the mantle, which is made out of magma and loads of broken up bits of rock. Then each table got a rock and a clue, we had to figure out which one was ours. My table got the lava bomb. Lastly we watched a video of different volcanoes erupting. After that we were heading back to the school.
