Arctic Animals! 
Primary 4 worked in groups and used the Book Creator app on the iPad to create a mini project about an Arctic animal. They used topic books to research each animal and to find photos. After they finished their project they presented it to the class on Apple TV. 
Northern Lights! 
Primary 4 have been learning about Cold Lands and during our topic we studied the Arctic and looked at the Northern Lights. The class created some wonderful pieces of Art. 
Right Angle Hunt! 
Primary 4 searched the classroom for any right angles they could find and recorded these on their whiteboards. 
Chocolate Cake! 
As a lovely end to our topic Mrs Boyce baked a chocolate cake with the help of Primary 4. As you can see everyone enjoyed it and it certainly tasted as good as it looked. A big thank you to Mrs Boyce. 
As part of our 'Food' topic we visited the local Spar to find out how many different types of bread they sell. We then got to taste some of the breads and decided on our favourite. Nearly half the class chose veda as their favourite. They even nicknamed it chocolate bread! 
As part of our 'Food' topic we have been discussing food preservation. We set up an experiment to find out which ingredient stopped the apple from turning brown. We used lemon juice, salt, sugar, oil and vinegar. We all made a prediction first and we then discussed how we could make it a fair test.
