Spectacular, Awesome, Fantastic

Were just some of the descriptions of the P7 show held on Thursday 31st May. Their play told the Primary 7 version of the traditional Snow White tale. The rest of the school enjoyed the dress rehearsal in the afternoon and everyone from P1-P6 had a great time. Having experienced the buzz of performing to a real live audience, the evening show to parents and families rose to even greater heights. The evening will live long in the memory of both the performers and those who watched!

Meadowbank Athletics

Teams from P6 & P7 attended the Meadowbank athletics tournament today and did the school proud. Each pupil gave their all against 13 other schools, many of them because of their size, having considerably more pupils to draw on. The teams competed in long jump, high jump, cricket ball throw, 80m, 150m, 600m and the 4 x 100m relay. Everyone had a great time despite the cold and damp weather.  See some photos here.

P7 Are “Cooking With Gas” At Ross High!

P7 enjoyed a visit to Ross High where they all baked some lovely healthy muffins. They worked alongside some senior Ross High pupils who were able to both help the P7’s in creating their culinary masterpieces, and also give them some inside information on Ross High itself.

Samba, Football & Genetics

It’s been a fab week. We have finished our topic on Brazil and learned what it’s like in the rainforest and how deforestation is causing such danger to the wildlife. We completed our rainforest display with nets and paper mache animals and things. We also started to learn samba dancing like they have in the Rio carnival. We will do more next week  and put on a show for some other classes. Then we did an assessment on what we had learned about Brazil on the computer pods that link to the whiteboard.  What else did we do this week – decimals in maths, we tried to build the tallest tower out of spaghetti and jelly babies (tasty and fun), we had a coach from Hearts to do more football coaching and we started learning about genetics. We looked at different species, then recipes for cakes and then recipes for us with DNA and genes. We did a webquest on the laptops to find out more about DNA, genes, chromosomes and stuff. What a week. For Photos – click here.

Upper School – King Loth & Judo

It has been a busy week for the upper school. On Monday there was our production of King Loth and on Thursday we had the opportunity to meet and train with Euan Burton, our Olympic judo hopeful for 2012.  You can read about both these events on the P7 class blog. A short cut to the King Loth post is here and the judo post here.
