Grades at Escaan School
Year 4 have been having lots of fun measuring with Newton Meters. They measured different things in the classroom and are understanding weight is a measurement of force.
We have a new timetable which is actually much better as we now have a double Science so we can do a full length exam. We’ve been working hard and doing lots of past papers to practise and see what we still need to go over. It has been hard work but it has shown how much the children have learnt. Keep up the good work!
We are starting to look at rivers and water usage. It’s an interesting topic which will take us around the world.
Today ECU2 has been exploring soap and what happens when you add it to water, mixing it around with sponges. It was a great activity one the children were all keen to join in. Allison McGillivray
This 3rd term lessons we are working on Corporal Expression activities. Today they were trying basic steps from very different types of dance: classical and modern dances. For classical, we watched a video doing “pirouettes” and students were doing pretty well. For modern dance, we watched a feet dance (Shuffle) were students tried the “Running Man step” and a hand dance (Tecktonik) were students could dance with their arms and hands. Great time!
