IRONKIDS Scotland is a series of three fun and family-focused running events for young people aged 3 to 14 of all abilities. The new running events being staged on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 June 2018 in Midlothian, East Lothian and Edinburgh are an exciting addition to the IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh race weekend and part of the global IRONKIDS running series. They are also a key part of Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 celebrations.
Organisers are inviting young people to sign up to race at one of the venues and enjoy the running, the challenge, the competition and the camaraderie with their friends, as well as the family entertainment and sports taster sessions that will be laid on.

This week in Primary 7 we started our maths mini project where you plan an end of year excursion. We were separated into groups to complete the task. It has been hard to find different types of information and all of the groups are working hard. We had to figure out the cost for travel and the activity we have chosen, make a healthy snack and each day filled out our feedback sheet for everyone else our group.
