Art at school with Mr C – By Lily & Cara

  • Our favorite thing we have done in art is our name plate (Mr Connel gave us a  piece of paper and we wrote our name in fancy writing and draw our favorite things)
  • Our last art project was Mary Queen of Scots portrait.   We had to choose which one out of  Mary or Lord Darnley.
  • We really like art and are getting better and  better at tone.

P4 outdoor(sometimes indoor) Athletics – By Matthew S & Sandy F

Recently p4 have had outdoor P.E. with Edinburgh University Physical Education students Miss Pate and Mr Ross. We were focusing on running 1st. We had turns on rotated stations. These stations were…

100 M sprint (Timed)

200 M 4 person relay

100 M 2 person relay

25 M heralds

Then after all that we started JUMPING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We started learning high jump, triple jump and long jump by jumping over the lines of the dinner hall. But then we started jumping over hurdles but then we started to focus on high jump on to mats and we used the scissor kick technique. And we did the triple jump we had to run at FULL speed towards a skipping rope and hop over it and into a hoop then leap into another hoop and jump as far as we could onto a set of mats.

Someone was holding the set of mats at the bottom so it was safe enough. Then we moved onto LONG JUMP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In long jump we ran up as fast as we could and jump on the mat.  There was colored cones at the side of the mat and the cones closest to the end of the mat are better. We  learned to fall forward instead of backwards. Because if you fall backwards you get measured from the back of your hands.


P.E This Week – By Ollie S and Jack H

With Mss Gordon we played chain ball , it was when someone hit the ball and everyone ran at the same time e.g Joshua hit the ball then everyone runs.The amount of people that get  back , that is the amount of points your team gets.

Today we played Runders with Mr McEwan , we had lots of fun and a good time. Jack enjoyed batting and I Ollie enjoyed batting like Jack.

ART by Jamie S and Sam M

  • In p4 we have been doing a block of art with Mr Connell and  we drew detailed pictures about Mary Queen Of Scots and Lord Darnley.
  • Mr Connell is a good drawer and he can draw out of nothing,  all he needs is a pencil and some paper to draw.
  • In art we have also did free art last week when Mr Connell was unable to take us.  We had to write a word about summer in fancy writing and draw detailed pictures round it.
  • A few weeks ago we drew Mary Queen Of Scots and we either  did Mary or Darnley, Sam did Mary and Jamie did Lord Darnley.
  • We both enjoy art in school.

Who Murdered Lord Darnley – By Lewis & Keegan

Who murdered Lord Darnley ? Well I will tell you This is who killed lord Darnley.  This my opinion I think it was him self.

We had P.C. books (police constable book and we had a Mary Queen of Scots thoughts sheet. We had a Mary Queen of Scots story book.

We have a timeline of Mary Queen of Scots sheet in the air of are classroom . For art we had to draw a lord Darnley or a Mary Queen of Scots they all look good. I will a  tell you a little story about it.

On morning Mary’s mum came up stairs of a castle and she said am sorry but you are going to France why because the boat is waiting on you. Let’s get paced MUM IM NOT GOING. YES YOU ARE! Why don’t you go. NO you go…TO BE CONTINUED!!

Mary Queen of Scots by RUBY L Martha C

Our topic that we just finished is Mary Queen of Scots. We have been investigating Lord Darnley’s death.

We think the person that killed Lord Darnley was Bothwell. We pretended that we were police constables and wrote down what our initial thoughts were.

We did Marys family tree. Marys dad was James V of Scotland and Marys mum was Mary of Lorraine/Mary of Guise. Marys first husband was Francis II of France, her second husband was Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley. Mary and Darnley had a son: James VI of Scotland, James I of England. Her third husband was James Hepburn, fourth Earl of Bothwell.

We did a sheet on Mary’s thoughts. One of the thoughts we did was Mary marries Lord Darnley, this is Ruby’s:

Oh! He is so handsome! I love him! I can’t wait to kiss him! Too bad Elizabeth! I-WILL-MARRY-WHO-I-WANT!!! I might have a baby!

Six Months Later….

I hate him! I want him to die! What an idiot! He is so lazy! He doesn’t even care about me! UUGGHH!

We enjoyed the Topic and learning about her life.


In super sonic spuds we were excited when the one outside has reached 1 Metre tall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So it all started when  Mr M put us into a challenge. We planted the potatoes but we did not know how to plant them so Mr M  told a farmer. So the famer came to show us how to plant them. Then we took turns to water the potatoes. So that is how this started OH YEAH I FORGOT WE DO A WORK SHEET TO REPORT WHAT WE’VE DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!What we did was we put three potatoes in bottles to see them grow and put one of them upside down and one outside that is the one that reached 1 metre.
