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!

P4 and P5 Rugby Festival

Primary 4 and 5 had a great time on 24th February at the Rugby tournament which took place at King’s Park, Dalkeith.

All children participated really well and it was a great day with lots of fun had by all!

Primary 4 – The Egyptians

Primary 4 have spent the last term learning about the Egyptians. We have been learning all about how the Egyptians lived, different Egyptian Artifacts and Egyptian Pharaohs.

We particularly enjoyed learning about Mummification and how the Egyptians prepared the bodies before mummifying them. Some things were really interesting but a little disgusting, particularly how they would take the brain out!

We made our own mummies in class (although the process wasn’t as grueling!).

We usedĀ mod rock, Plasticine and paint to create fantastic replications of Egyptian Mummies!

Fairtrade Breakfast

On Wednesday 9th March our Fairtrade group organised a Fairtrade Breakfast to raise money. The whole school, with help from the parents attending raise a lot of money for Fairtrade. Mrs Hunter organised the event and the Fairtrade team members led the Assembly. P4 had created their own Fairtrade song and it was very funny!

Each class participated in a competition to design a tea pot, mug or cup and we used these to decorate the assembly hall.

We will add photos very soon!

We have been rehearsing the Easter story with P3 as we are going to perform this next week in our Easter Assembly.

Scottish Activities

This week the children at St Andrew’s Primary School have been preparing for their Burns Supper on Monday 25th January. Each class has been creating their own table centre piece and learning a range of Scottish poems, songs and dances. We will share more pictures after our Burns Supper but here is a sneak preview of some our Scottish Art Work and Centre Pieces.
