Our Transpiration Investigation 

We have been investigating transpiration. This is the movement of water up the stem of a plant from root to leaf and flowers . Firstly water is absorbed by the roots. It then moves into the xylem vessel which is the tube carrying water up the plant. Water evaporates through small openings in the plant. We used white flowers, water and blue food colouring to investigate the movement of water through a plant.

Sports Day - Tuesday 13th June

The P3s had a great time today in Cromellin Park. There was a running race, potato and spoon race, skipping race and the obstacle race!

Well done to everyone who took part - it was an enjoyable afternoon !

Releasing the Butterflies......

We waited until Friday 9th June to finally release our butterflies beside the Minibeast Hotels we had constructed. It is important that the temperature is above 12 degrees when releasing them as butterflies need this warmth to fly, feed and pollinate.

This week we have been investigating bubbles!!!

We have been learning that when air gets trapped under the surface of soap mixture, the skin stretches into a sphere... making a bubble.

We discussed what happens when a bubble floats through the air and lands on our hands, table or a wall. It will pop as it makes a hole in the skin and the air escapes. In class we were investigating are bubbles always round? We needed bubble solution, wires to make different shaped blowers... squares, triangles etc....

We found out that even if a bubbles starts out another shape it will always return to a sphere as soon as it floats into the air!!!  We also observed colour changes..... when a bubble was first made we saw greens,purples , blues and pinks.... but as it was about to pop the colour changes to a dark , golden yellow!!!!!

  • We tried the Heart Monitor. The pads were very sticky and it measured our heart rate.
  • We also saw how an oxygen mask works. It was very noisy!!
  • We learned all about vacuum splint for when someone's leg is broken.
  • The Paramedic showed us what happens when someone has a head injury.
  • We looked inside the Paramedic Bag and the back of the ambulance car and saw all the equipment!!!

Finally we asked lots of questions and learned lots about the job of a busy Paramedic.
