P7 Peer Assessment

The P7 classes gathered together this week to showcase their WWII individual projects and peer assess them. The pupils really enjoyed the chance to share their fantastic work with the year group.

Peace Pole Service

It’s been another super day in Primary 7! The year group walked up to St Anne’s Church for the Peace Pole service to sing songs about peace and read out a selection of Remembrance poems.

P7 Assembly

We were very proud of the P7 year group on Friday! They have been working so hard in class learning about WWII and Remembrance and were able to share their knowledge with Lochend Campus at the weekly assembly.

Take a look at some of the photos below:

Dunbar Grammar School Information Evening

The purpose of the evening is to update parents & carers on the many changes which have taken place and their plans for the future regarding the Broad General Education Phase (S1 – S3) and the Senior Phase (S4 – S6 Qualification Phase).

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.

P7C VE Day Celebration

All primary 7 pupils enjoyed participating in a special VE Day celebration today. We made our own patriotic rosettes, had a visit from a man who lived through real-life air raids and jitter-bugged our way through the morning! They certainly looked the part in their WW2 costumes! Back in the classroom we enjoyed eating some WW2 treats made by the pupils. Thank you to everyone who contributed. Finally we were interrupted by a very unexpected air raid siren and had to grab our gas masks, heading to the shelters beneath our tables. What a day!

To round off our World War II topic we are planning a VE Day celebration on Monday 3rd November. Children are encouraged to come to school dressed in WWII related clothing e.g. evacuee child, land girl, soldier etc. Teachers dress up too!

We will be having some refreshments to celebrate the end of WWII. If you would like to contribute any home baking to the celebration, please send it in a named box on the day for your child’s class to enjoy.

We look forward to seeing the different outfits!

Halloween Crafts!

P7A were invited to John Muir Campus to spend the afternoon with their P1B buddies on Wednesday.

Everyone had a great time preparing for Halloween. P7 helped their buddy design some very scary masks and pumpkin decorations.

We ended our afternoon with a little boogie to Michael Jackson’s Thriller!

Happy Halloween from P7A and P1B!
