P6 climb rocks on Traprain law

A few weeks ago p6 climbed a Traprain law rock face and did certain tasks for their survival topic. They had to walk along a field to actually get there. When they arrived they were split into 2 groups one went of with Miss Salmon the other group went to rock climb. The rock climbers had to were helmets and harnesses. There were 3 ropes to climb blue, orange and red. blue being the easiest and red being the hardest. For the survival tasks they played a game you may be familiar with where you have 4 spots and you have to get across with 3 people at a time. Next they had to do some scenario sheet work. You were tasked to scavenge for items you only get 12. Next you have to make up a plan. Once finished the group came together with their plan. After both groups had done both activities they had a small play and the went back to school.

P5 Orienteering Competition

P5 went to an orienteering competition. Orienteering is when you follow a map to some controls, you have a dibber ( an electronic finger) you have to put the dibber in to the controls and wait till it beeps. P5 had 11 controls to go to around the Musselburgh lagoons and past the sea. We got put into pairs to sit on the bus and to go orienteering. Before we went orienteering we played some games and had some hot chocolate but the Kelly kettle didn’t work so we had to go to an the education centre  for the hot chocolate . Jacob and Adam came 3rd out of over 100 pairs. There is a video on youtube please check it out:

What p2/3 have been doing this week

This week P2/3 went to see the African drumming people. They spoke different languages. Then we watched the
concert, it was very fun to listen to. Also we were doing lots of art about what we saw at the top of North Berwick Law. I found this task very fun and entertaining. For the artwork we were mixing up different shades of blue and green. we were also using water colours to get the shade that we needed. When we had finished doing the picture about the view from the top of the Law, We started drawing the picture of the whale bone. We used the water colours to get the little details.

What have Nursery and P7 been up to?

Nursery have been learning about recycling. They have been learning about what reduce, reuse and recycle means. The have also been learning about how to make compost. The Nursery told me how to make it, you put food in the compost bins and it turns into compost! You use compost to plant flowers. Nursery are going to go on to learn about mini beasts next! Well done!

The P7s have been working extremely hard over the past couple of weeks to put together our end of term show, ‘The Rocky Monster Show’. We have been going down to the Aberlady Community hall to practise the play. We have all been trying very hard to memorise all of our lines and songs and we are getting on very well. I’m sure it is going to be a great show and I hope you can come along to watch us in action! Good Luck P7s!
