P7 had an amazing trip to the Lady Haig Poppy Factory in Edinburgh where they learned about the history of the poppy, its significance and how they are made.
They found out about life in the Second World War for people at home and on the Front. They saw loads of artifacts from the 1940s and some lucky people (and Mrs Rae) got to dress up in the kind of equipment worn by soldiers at that time.
They got a chance to make their own poppies and had a fantastic and informative trip.
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.
