P7 visit Dynamic Earth

Both P7 classes visited Dynamic Earth today to support their IDL topic, Natural Disasters. Pinkie could be proud with the P7 pupils, as they showed great enthusiasm, knowledge and applied many skills in the tour and follow up workshop. The 3D rocket tour around the globe had most screaming with glee! (or maybe a bit of fear?)

There was even time for a quick trip to Holyrood Park to check out an extinct volcano, Parliament,  the palace and a few games out in the sunshine!

A busy time for 7A!

P7a have had a very busy few weeks! In summary, here is what Delia thought were the highlights:

  • An engineer visit from Edinburgh Uni and creating draft engineering designs
  • A very successful bake sale and world book day for P7’s £1 challenge
  • Creating music for a movie
  • A trip to the Grammar for a transition event
  • Learning CPR with Mr Stone

As you can see, it’s not just a case of sitting in the classroom and writing in jotters!

Crazy Costume Day!

We had a brilliant turn out for crazy costume day yesterday! Thank you to everyone who took part!!

Everyone who dressed up looked FANTASTIC! There were lots of pyjamas, onesies, and crazy ideas – odd shoes, socks on hands, crazy hairstyles and lots more! The P7 fundraising group were blown away with the craziness and creativity, they certainly had a tough job judging around the classes… well done to all the winners!

Here is a few snaps of the creative and crazy outfits.

P7 Bake Sale – A massive thank you and congratulations!

The dining hall today had a real buzz about it and a delicious waft of coco powder as there was the cake competition run by the ‘Drama Lammas’ and the bake sale run by a number of groups and supported by the whole of the P7 year group!

Mrs Bonnar and our chef Jill had a very challenging task to choose a winner and runner ups! Congrats to those who caught the judges eyes, and you will get your prizes next week!

A massive thank you to all those who baked and donated! The feedback from the P7’s and teachers was fantastic and today would not have been the success it was without the generosity we saw across the school today.
