Awesome acrobatics in P3!

P3 enjoyed a fun gymnastics session with visiting PE teacher Mr Wilson. They had to use their imagination and team-work skills to make up and perform interesting floor routines. Look out for some future Olympic God medalists!

Poo did that?!!

Primary 5 had a visit from freelance artist Fiona to learn all about dog poo and the issues that arise from it. We went on a poo hunt around Gorebridge documenting the amount of dog poo left by owners. We also learned the consequences of not picking up after your dog. 

Swimming in P4

Primary 4 have really enjoyed their block of swimming and are sad that it’s almost over.

Yesterday we worked on keeping our balance in the water using different floating aids to help us.

We are all really happy and proud to see how well each person in our class has progressed; most people are so confident now they are trying without arm bands!

Keep up the super work P4!

Brilliant Bushcraft!

Primary 3 enjoyed a fantastic visit to Vogrie Park, where they were introduced to Bushcraft. There were loads of opportunities to work with others and learn a real variety of new skills. The sunshine and large amounts of mud were just an added bonus!  Here’s what we got up to:

Building hammocks . . . 

Learning how to build fires . . . .

Toasting marshmallows . . . .

Creating Stick Men . . . .

P2 world book day -The Gruffalo

During World book day we read Mrs Green’s favourite story The Gruffalo.

We then went on a ‘Gruffalo hunt’ were we had to find different items from the story, we played a game were we had to move like the different animals and we talked about their habitats. We then had to create a Gruffalo wood using the natural materials we found around the school grounds. We also made some Gruffalo masks.

P7 Robotics Projects

P7 have had an exciting opportunity to build their own robot. They have been working on their projects at home for 6 weeks. As part of their home learning they have had to research robotics, design a robot which solved a problem that they had, create a detailed drawing and then finally build their robot. This week they have had to present talks to the class about their robot and their learning.

All of the children in P7 have put a lot of effort into their projects, A Big thanks to anyone who helped at home! Please have a look at some of our photos below! We will upload the rest as soon as we can :)!

This Week in Primary 1 -24.2.17

Primary 1 have enjoyed reading Jack and Beanstalk and working on the computers with Primary 7. We also enjoyed visiting Primary 7 to see their robots. Primary 1 have begun to create Jack’s Beanstalk with Mrs Valentine. We have been learning new tricky words and have enjoyed our rainbow writing activity.

WW1 Projects

A huge Well Done to all pupils in P6 (and any helpers at home) for the fantastic effort that went into the personal projects. We have thoroughly enjoyed learning about all aspects of the war from each other and the research that has been conducted at home.

Pupils presented their projects in a variety of ways including posters, booklets, leaflets and power point presentations. The projects have included fascinating detail and have been carefully thought out.

We have learned all about distant relatives who served in The Great War, how to protect our feet from Trench Foot, how women served in the WLA, that there are ‘male and ‘female’ tanks, how women got the vote after the war and many many more interesting and fascinating facts. We will keep you updated.
