Published by under Uncategorised

Our topic was about the romans. We made a poster for Dirleton, we went into groups of two I went with Joel we worked hard on it.  I wrote everything and Joel got all the information and we had task to do. We had to do a shield, a mosaic, a catapult and lots of other stuff. I have done a shield, a roman number line, a mosaic and game on the top pitch.  I liked making the shield the mosaic and the roman number line.

On Tuesday 6thof October a lady came in to teach us some games and songs.  One of the games we put our right hand on top of our left hand and we sang a song and at the last word if we were daydreaming we had to take our hand away and you would be safe for that round or if we were daydreaming we went in the middle of the circle.

The Romans by Maja

Published by under Uncategorised

This year our new topic is romans. In school we’ve been making posters for the p6/7 class in Dirleton Primary to look at, as they would like to learn about the Romans too. We got to choose who we worked with for the poster. I have defiantly learnt a lot in this topic and found it very interesting. The posters include most of the information that we have learnt so far. We have also been getting extra homework; some things are based on the romans like: Make a roman shield, create a roman mosaic or look up a roman invention and try it yourself. I loved making the posters and doing the homework.

This term we had a homework list and it has lots and lots of different challenges. P4/5 had to do two and P6/7 has to 4. There was a talk, a poem, a poster, a shield, a mosaic, a number line, a dance with any music, a game and a roman invention . There are only 7 choices but it is really fun having to choose your homework. The most fun one is shields and spears. We have been up to lots of other things this term

ROMAN POSTERS by Amy and Isla

Published by under Uncategorised

In class we have been learning about the Romans. We have learned lots of interesting facts that we didn’t know before and then we put them into posters and made them stand out. Our teacher wanted us to make these posters and then she is going to send them to Dirleton primary school P6/7. It was quite tricky because we had to look up facts and fill a whole A3 bit of paper or even 2 bits of A3 pieces of paper and we had to either draw pictures or print them off the internet. We either got to work alone or with a partner and it was really fun we learned lots more facts that we didn’t know before. In the end we all got them finished and they all stood out, it took about four days to completely finish them and the posters look really good.

Pupil Parliament 2015/16

Published by under Uncategorised

Today we met for the second time as a Pupil Parliament to decide on our three Pupil Priorities for this school year.  Having spent time discussing self-evaluation questions in each of our groups we were able to narrow our ideas to three that we all agreed upon.  Unsurprisingly this did not take us long, as clearly our pupils know our school well, able to identify what we do well and what we can improve further.

Our Pupil Priorities for this year are:

1. Refresh Golden Time (perhaps look to make use of different classes for activities, extended Golden time on occasion, make use of the village and playground areas, how does this link to behaviour)

2.  Improve how me make use of the House System (perhaps have badges, link into our achievements both in and out of school, refresh the House Point System)

3. Continue to develop our outdoor space (Improve the pond area, planting lines in the playground, use of games)  -The ECO committee shall also contribute to this priority.

There is lots to do!  We look forward to getting started!
