P7 Dirleton Castle Tour

A huge well done to P7 who were fantastic at the Dirleton Castle tour yesterday. You worked so hard to learn all the facts and get in to character, you should be very proud of yourselves!

Thank you to everyone from the school and to the parents who joined us, we hope you enjoyed yourself and learned something new.

P7 now have the weekend to get ready for camp next week, exciting stuff!

Here are some photos from the tour below 🙂


P7 Learning Log

Congratulations to P7 on receiving their hoodies last Friday. There has been lots of excitement around the hoodies arriving for the majority of the year and I am not sure whether they have taken them off since! Primary 7 would like to thank the DSP for their very generous gift in their last term of primary school.

Preparations are well underway for the P7 Dirleton Castle tour! We have been working hard this week practising our lines and getting our costumes and props ready. We hope to see you there next week to share our learning about the history of the castle. 🙂 

P7 Science

This week in science we have been exploring chemical and physical changes. We discussed how the changing of water from a solid, liquid or gas is a reversible change.

We then completed an experiment to look at what happens when a chemical change occurs.

We mixed together the reactants of bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to produce a gas. We then collected the carbon dioxide product in the balloons.

P7 Learning Log

This week, P7 had the opportunity to make some healthy meals with the nutrition students from Queen Margaret University.

The key learning was around making healthy choices and getting a good variety of the food groups from the Eatwell Plate in to meals. Using their cooking skills, P7 made pitta pizzas and lettuce wraps which they very much enjoyed! 🙂
