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.
World Book Day on PhotoPeach
We had fun celebrating World Book Day yesterday, we dressed up, we doodled, we dropped everything and read, we met an author and her dog!
We love to read at Campie!
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.
