Primary 7 have been learning about the Government during Social Studies. After visiting the Scottish Parliament Primary 7 were put into their own political parties. Each party had to create a manifesto, name, logo and slogan. They then had to choose a leader and they had to deliver a speech to the upper school assembly. The leaders will now visit the upper school classes to canvas for votes where they hope to become the Prime Minister and leading party of the P7 classroom. The winning party will run the P7 class for 2 Fridays in June where they will instruct Miss Reid on what they expect in relation to their party manifesto.

On Thursday 31st January P7 went into Edinburgh to learn more about their topic Horrible Histories of Scotland.
First the class went on an open top bus tour which pointed out all the Horrible Histories of the Capital City. Unfortunately it was a very rainy day so we had to sit inside the bus or at the front of the bus upstairs.

After the tour we walked through Princess Street Gardens and had our lunch at the art gallery. We then got a guided tour of the gallery where we looked at the painting ‘The Feast of Herod’ and some paintings by Scottish Artists.

Primary 7 visited Lockerbie Manor on a residential visit from Monday 4th February until Friday 8th February. Miss Reid, Miss MacLaughlan and Marc went with P7 to camp and each lead a group.
We did lots of fantastic activities including riffles, archery, zip-wire, climbing, low ropes, abseiling, fencing and the obstacle course.
We all had a fantastic time at camp especially when it snowed.
