Primary 7 opened their fruit tuck shop on Monday. We had lots of happy customers & will be open every Monday at break time from now on. We hope to buy a wide variety of fruit so that our customers have the opportunity to buy some new and exotic fruit. Prices are from 25-45p and we hope to see you on Monday.
Last week Primary 7 & 1 took part in a fruit tasting organised by Pamela from Roots & Fruit. We all really enjoyed it and some of us were tasting things for the 1st time!!! We all agreed that dates were not our Number 1 favourite thing though!!! On Monday October 31st Primary 7 will be running a fruit tuck shop in school at morning break. All fruit will be priced from 25p – 45p & we hope that you will come along & support us with this new venture.
The P7’s went on a transition day yesterday and had so much fun! in the morning, we met up with the other P7’S from the different clusters and had a fun packed morning meeting the teachers from Dunbar Grammar school in the Lochend Campus, Dunbar. We had to follow a set timetable. In the afternoon, we walked down to The Grammar school to take part in some sports! We all had a great time and we cant wait to go to the next one! 🙂
P7 ran a fundraiser Chalk art day on Friday! Everybody really enjoyed it, P7 and P1 worked together, P6 and P2, P5 and P3 and finally P4 and nursery. After the fundraiser then playground was beautifully and brightly decorated!
Last Friday everyone wore their own clothes and designed lots of lovely art with multi colours of chalk. There was a variety of designed and there was a lot of sponge bobs and outlines of people.
Because it was such a success the school might do it regularly, every week or so.
Our second workshop was the programming workshop where we used software called Kodu and we created a game in our own set landscape. We controlled it with Xbox controllers which was very helpful!
Our last but not least workshop was the light workshop in which we learned all about prisms and how light is formed. We even drew with ultra violet lights on paper covered with a chemical. And finally we found out that our eye actually sees upside down.
This week P7 have been doing their cycling training!
Some parent helpers Pam, Jenny, Sabine and Bob came in to help P7.
The first activity on Friday 26th, was just a bike check and teaching them how to know if their bike was suitable for the road, they all were with only minor adjustments being made (pumping up tyres).
Next on Monday 29th they had to do some actual cycling. They did braking drills. Everything in that lesson was about keeping control of your bike. At the end they all did a slow race together, the champion was Brodie Gray who was great at controlling his bike! All of P7 really enjoyed it and can’t wait to get onto the road after Easter.
On Monday P7 had a Money Sense workshop. They had to plan a party for one of four children. One was a bookworm, one loves all sports, another loves skateboarding, the last spending time with her friends in a coffee shop. Kate Smith ( Henry in P7’s mum) came in to help us with this workshop and how to save money through getting the best deal.
P7 all really enjoyed themselves and want to try another one. Here are some of P7’s reviews:
Brodie” It was really good and interesting.”
Matthew” It was a great way to do maths.”
Henry” It was fun and taught us a lot about spending money for the future.”
Amy” Interesting and fun.”
Joshua” Great and I would like to try another harder one.”
P7 were also busy doing their Van Gogh inspired pictures. They were using Van Gogh’s picture Starry Night to create their own lovely pictures using pastels and paint.
