Water marbling

Miss Lowry showed Primary 7 how to water marble.  They had lots of fun and then drew their own fish to add ontop of the water marbling pattern.

Water

Primary 7 have been learning how some people in foreign countries are not as fortunate as us and cannot just turn on a tap to get water.  They have to walk miles every day and when they arrive unfortunately the water they get is not clean.  Primary 7 have been learning how Lola travels 12, 874 m every day to get water.  Primary 7 tried to empathise with Lala by carrying a bucket of water for 2 minutes.  They had lots of fun but realise the hard work Lola encounters every day.  In total Primary 7 travelled 6, 951m which is approximately half the distance travelled by Lala.

Primary 7 have been taking part in a mental health and well being programme being delivered virtually by Mid and East Antrim.  They are focusing on the 5 steps to wellbeing of connect, keep learning, be active, take notice and give.

Filtering experiment

Primary 7 filtered some dirty water through gravel and sand to produce clear water.  They had a lot of fun!
