P7’s new for this week.

We’ve had another busy week. We’ve continued reading the story of Greyfriars Bobby and we learnt about the fishwives from Newhaven who sold herring around Edinburgh and sang the song ‘Caller Herring’. We were lucky enough to have a drama session from Shona our wonderful drama workshop teacher who told us the story of Ann Frank, which related well to our previous topic of WW2. In PE this week the class enjoyed working on balance, flight and travel skills in gymnastics. Poetry has been an important part of our week. We wrote poems inspired by the work of Robert Louis Stevenson, called ‘I was the Giant’, everyone had a go at writing using rhyming couplets and four line stanzas. We also  had a poetry recital this morning with every pupil performing their chosen Scottish poem. David recited his poem so well that Mrs Bagnall asked him to say it for Mrs MacDonald when she dropped by.

Next week begins with a few pupils who have been selected to join a Ross Rocks Reading event at the National Libraries of Scotland, who have never opened their doors to primary school children before…. we are looking forward to hearing about the experience. We are making Scotch broth next week to try out the new school cooker and to find out how it’s made. Perhaps they will treat you to a pot of it at home!

The long awaiting French cheese tasting will be happening next week too!!
