Sky Academy


P7 had a great time at Sky Skills Academy in Livingston.  After spending time in class researching news reports on TV we planned and scripted our own about the proposed Mars One mission to Mars.  We took this script to the Sky Academy where we made the news report helped by staff from Sky.

The class was split into 3 groups each doing a part of the report in a separate studio. Those members of the class not in front of the camera had roles as Producer, Director or Camera Operator with everyone involved with the editing of their part.

Below are photos of the experience and the complete report.

Schools Mock Court Project Starts

Today we had the first visit from our specialist legal helpers to really launch the Schools Mock Court Project.

Amy and Elizabeth are Solicitors who are helping us get ready for our planned case in the Edinburgh Sheriff’s Court in November.  At the moment our Pursuers team are preparing the initial writ whilst the Defenders team are preparing to receive theirs and anticipating how they will respond.

It all promises to be very interesting and great fun!

Thank You from the Scottish Book Trust

SBT LogoOn Tuesday I attended the shortlist panel meeting at the Scottish Book Trust.  We selected the 3 finalists for the 2015 Scottish Children’s Book Awards for 8-11 year olds from the 16 books P7 have been reading.  I was asked by the SBT to pass on their thanks for the hard work done by the children.  The comments made were much appreciated by the panel and were very influential in deciding the 3 finalists.

The shortlisted books are ….. TOP SECRET until the official launch on 28th August.  Watch this space for details.
