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 :)!

Paired Reading

Primary 7 have paired up with a Primary 2 buddy and are enjoying opportunities to regularly read together.

P2 have been selecting their favourite books and P7 have been supporting them to read aloud with fluency and expression.




Both classes thoroughly enjoy their weekly opportunity to read together and have engaged fully in this cooperative experience.

P7 Outcamp

On Monday 11th April P7 went to camp but five of us never went to camp. We took part in St Andrew’s Outcamp.

On the Wednesday we went to Surgeons Hall Museum in Edinburgh with P5. We took a public bus. When we got there we met a girl called Anna who set up exciting workshops about our body . We did some activities but the  most  people did not like one of the activities, it was the disgusting! We had to learn about digestion and we made poo!


On the Thursday P7 went to a Harry Potter trip around Edinburgh .We met a girl called Liv. She took us around Edinburgh and we got wooden wands covered in pant. After that we went to Pizza Expess with Mrs Valentine it was so much Fun!

P7 Essay Competition

Evan Fleming (P7) won the 500 word essay competition. The title off the essay was: The Tiger in the Tale. The story is about two police officers called: Bradley Bull and Fred Fox. The case that comes up happens to be the same kind of case that Fred had dealt with 10 years ago.

Evan chose this theme because his favourite book, The Cat in the Hat is about an animal .Evan’s favourite books are The Cat in the Hat and the Grinch. Evan really enjoys reading!

Well Done Evan!

Choir Performance

On Friday the 11th of March St Andrew’s school choir performed at the Dean Tavern in Newtongrange. Miss Bryce who runs the Choir group attended the event with Mrs Matthews and Mrs McCallum. Mrs Matthews was very proud as our choir got a standing ovation! They sang True Colours , Punk Rocker  and 500 miles.

The following children are members of the choir: Emma Sroka P6, Aimee Swan P5, Caitlyn Murdoch P5, Caitlyn Macdonald P6, Josh Sessions P5, Demi Macdonald P7, Ella Annor P6 and Phoebe Macdonald (P7).

I spoke to Aimee Swan and she said: ‘ We got a massive applause it was so loud!’ A big thank you to Miss Bryce, the talented leader of the choir. She said: ‘The audience loved it so many people were standing up showing their appreciation for our singing’! We would also like to thank Jake Herriot for organising the event.
