P7A and P7B have been starting to find out about coding. We’ve looked at why coding is important, where coding is used (EVERYWHERE!) and we have started making our own mini games using a coding language called Scratch. Here’s a game that Jay and Harley wrote using Hour of Code’s Flappy Bird tutorial.

Both P7 classes were given a talk on how to stay safe around Bonfire Night. They were given information on the risks involved with fireworks, sparklers and fires. They obviously knew a lot about it and enjoyed the presentation from the officers and firefighters from Musselburgh Fire Station.
Pupils from P7A and P7B travelled to Meadowmill Sports Centre today to take part in the East Lothian Tag Rugby Tournament. There were loads of teams there from Dunbar to Aberlady and from Yester to Stoneyhill. There were 9 pitches set up for us all and once we had found out what was happening, we started our matches. The girls team did great, winning half of their games. The boys played well, and improved a huge amount over the morning. There was great teamwork on show as well as good sportsmanship all round.
P7 have been exploring the art of Andy Goldsworthy, who uses natural materials to build elaborate sculptures and patterns. We looked at the style he used, the patterns in his art and how he made his art.
We then took on the challenge of creating our own nature art in the school grounds. Some of the challenges we came across were finding materials and the wind destroying our sculptures!
P7A have taken on the responsibility of starting a Twitter account for the school. On it, we will let you know what’s happening in the school and what all the classes are up to. We will keep it updated throughout the year – be sure to follow us to keep up-to-date with everything to do with Pinkie St Peter’s!
