On Friday, Primary 6/7 royally entertained their parents and friends with a fantastic assembly based around the language work they had completed over the previous term. They showed they could be both informative and entertaining.
Brilliant performance from all of them. Clearly there are more than a few budding actors and actresses in the class. So proud of them!
On Friday, Primary 6/7 went to Meadowmill to represent the school in the East Lothian Schools athletic competition. The pupils were magnificent, competing well in all the events entered. They also behaved very well and showed sportsmanship across the morning.
Thank you to all the P4-7 pupils who came along to the STEM after school club over the last 6 weeks. I didn’t anticipate how popular the club would be and it was great to see so many pupils enthusiastic and motivated over STEM activities. Lots of problem solving, creative thinking and fun!
Another busy STEM session at our after school club!
We used KAPLA to make all kinds of structures – from a spider to a house! We also worked in small teams to design a bridge to get three figures safely over the water without falling in! We could only use paper, cardboard, sticky tape and string…
P6/7 enjoyed a fantastic morning with a visit from “Field To Fork” . We learned a lot about Fairtrade products and the benefits of the system to Fairtrade farmers. It certainly gave us “food” for thought!
After break we made some delicious banana and chocolate muffins made from Fairtrade ingredients. What an informative, and tasty, morning.
Fantastic chance for the pupils of both P4/5 and P6/7 to try their hand at programming with the Lego Mindstorm challenge. The pupils learned how to programme their robots and had to use these newly learned skills to tackle a series of increasing more complex problems. Working together, the pupils had to utilise different sensors on the robots to get their robots to drive round obstacles, turn corners and even carry out a small dance!
Last Thursday, P6/7 went to Queen Margaret University to take part in the Holocaust Memorial service. Introduced by the Lord Provost, the class heard a number of speakers talk about different aspects of the Holocaust. We took part in an art project around the theme “Torn From Home”. We had a number of pupils who were confident and eloquent enough to volunteer to go up on stage to speak to the audience about their artwork and feelings.
The class behaved amazingly well, throughout what was a very sensitive topic, and did the school proud.
Growing together in a vibrant and inclusive learning community
