On Tuesday 28th April Primary 4 went on a school trip to Edinburgh Castle. This trip was linked to our previous topic which was Robert the Bruce.
We all enjoyed a tour around the castle, with a guide sharing some interesting information with us! We had lots of fun in the education room where we got to try on helmets and gloves that a solider would have wore during the Wars of Independence.
We had lunch at the National Museum and had a good look around - we saw lots of things in the Scottish history section that we had looked at during our topic.

Our new topic is Germs and Diseases. Today we did an experiment with yeast. We had one cylinder with yeast and sugar and one with just yeast. We then put the cylinders into a tub of hot water. The cylinder without sugar reached 77ml. The one with sugar went up to 160ml and then overflowed. william zoe
