Generation Science ‘Space Base’ workshop visited P6M at Roseburn Primary School on Wednesday. As part of the Edinburgh Science Festival, they turned our school hall into outer space. Their team of scientists set up a planetarium and primary 6 were taken on a whistle stop tour of our galaxy. We got an up-close look at planets, stars, moons and constellations. The scientists told us about different galaxies and types of planets – P6 even impressed the scientists with some of their knowledge.
Our space topic will blast off next term, but this term we are busy learning about some places closer to home. P6M are working on their Europe topic, researching different European countries to find out about their languages, cultures, traditions, food and more.
We are learning about money in our maths topic. We are learning about change, paying by card, finance, banking, and other currencies. We’re looking forward to our upcoming trip to The Museum on the Mound, to find out more about what money is, counterfeit money and how banks work.
