P3/4 Mary Queen of Scots Fact Files on PhotoPeach
P3/4 have worked really hard at home to create their very own fact file posters about Mary Queen of Scots. They used their learning experiences from school and also did their own personal research to complete this very exciting home learning challenge. All of the posters are very informative, detailed, well organised and eye catching. They have made a fantastic learning wall for everyone to enjoy in our classroom.

Learning about Food for Fuel at Tesco with P3/4! on PhotoPeach

P3/4 spent this afternoon at Tesco in Musselburgh with Jane Shepherd, the learning coordinator, who helped them to learn more about how important it is to eat a healthy, balanced and nutritious diet. They explored the supermarket together in teams collecting different types of foods for their shopping basket before Jane tested their knowledge with a food group quiz. Afterwards each pupil worked on a menu for an athlete before creating a healthy, happy and balanced food group face on a plate. P3/4 have learned that there are five main food groups: PROTEINS, CARBOHYDRATES, FRUIT, VEGETABLES AND DAIRY. We have all agreed as a class that every food group is important and NUTRITIOUS and DELICIOUS!

Mary Queen of Scots Drama with P3/4 on PhotoPeach

P3/4 explored the events in Mary Queen of Scots life with the ELC Drama Specialist Shonagh Davidson yesterday morning. They were in role as a member of the royal family before becoming spies! Everyone enjoyed using their knowledge of what happened to Mary Queen of Scots and bringing particular significant events to life through creative expression, mime and cooperative learning. We would like to thank Shonagh for a fantastic drama workshop and we will be using our experiences with her to help us to write our own Mary Queen of Scots biographies.

Brilliant Badminton with P3/4! on PhotoPeach
P3/4 had a fantastic badminton taster session this morning. We learned how to hold and throw the shuttlecock before hitting it with the racket. It was a lot of fun playing with a partner and working together to improve our playing technique and skill.

Mindset Moment: Characteristics of a Growth Mindset- The Power of Perseverance


Posted by pmckay | Posted in Growth Mindset, Whole School Focus | Posted on 27-02-2017

Our aim is to nurture an ethos in the school where children feel confident that they are able to embrace challenge and therefore as a consequence that not being successful first time is part of this process. This builds on the last focus on how making mistakes is an integral part of the learning process.

Persistence is the twin sister of excellence. One is a matter of quality; the other, a matter of time.’ Marabel Morgan

This week children will be looking at the power of perseverance.

Facing challenges requires children to be aware of the characteristics or attributes that they will require in order to be successful. This focusses on the attributes that we should nurture in learners to support them in seeking and managing challenge.

Challenge should be viewed by learners as ideal learning opportunities, a chance to extend their knowledge and skills beyond their current levels. ‘Be a better version of me!’

It is World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March and our Campie librarians have come up with some ideas to help us celebrate… we’ll be dressing up for school as someone or something book-related – we are not collecting any money – it’s just for fun, we’ll be dropping everything and reading and we’ll be doodling about books and stories.

If you want to celebrate at home too there are some fun World Book Day games, resources and quizzes at www.takethequiz.co.uk
Happy Reading!
