East Lothian Drama specialist Shonagh Davidson led an exciting workshop that helped P7 use their knowledge of WW1 to create propaganda adverts for recruiting soldiers into the army. Next week we will be discussing the arguments of the conscientious objectors.
Primary 7 will be working towards the Bike Ability level 2 award this term. We will be working in two groups. This week group 1 practised balance and cornering skills in the playground. The next session will be on real roads and will teach the children how to position themselves when cycling in traffic and how to correctly use junctions.
We have been learning about the men who did not come back from WW1 and are remembered on our memorial. We have found some of their names in our school records, as well as stories about how the school helped in the war. The children have written letters to the soldiers who did not return and have drawn some very good charcoal pictures of what they may have looked like.
