We are holding a Mixed Stage Learning event on Monday 23rd March. Children will work in House groups from Primary 1 – 7. The focus is on Sustainability and the main messages – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. We are trying to make children aware of what can be created from things that people no longer want or need. Children will be asked to design outfits and accessories for a fashion show.
WE URGENTLY NEED OLD MATERIAL AND CLOTHES!
Please help us make this event a success!
On Thursday 5th March, P5b had a wonderful visit to Wagamama, a Japanese restaurant in Edinburgh. This trip was organised to achieve deeper learning about the country of Japan and link to the children’s recent learning about food and cooking too.
We all had an amazing time and were given a tour of the different parts of the restaurant. In groups, the children made and tasted different flavours of juices, weighed out ingredients by reading recipes and were introduced to new Japanese foods.
Lastly we all got to sample some delicious noodles made especially for us by the Wagamama chef and triedto eat them using chopsticks! As we left we were all given a Wagamama goodie bag which is a lovely memento of our fantastic trip. A big thank you to Lisa, the restauarant manager and all her kind and helpful staff!
Congratulations to our wonderful P6 and P7 pupils who are supporting all of the children in school with use of the playground games. Known as “The Fun Ones” these P6 and P7s are acting as responsible citizens and helping us develop our social skills. Like Purple Man would say “Help everyone respect others” Well done Fun Ones!
Today we had a successful launch of playground equipment. We had parents and children dancing in the playground with Andy McKechnie. Thank you to everyone for making it such a successful venture.
As part of our Time Travellers topic, P4b have been learning about fashion trends of the 1980s and creating their own designs. See if you can spot the shoulder pads, fingerless gloves and leg warmers in these first drafts by Laila-Mae, Kiera, Isabella, Sophie and Robert!
The primary 1 children tried to glimpse a sight of the Spitfire planes yesterday that flew over the Forth Rail Bridge as part of the 125th anniversary celebrations. Sadly the planes must have flown in the other direction and we were met with clear skies but no Spitfire. We did catch the odd seagull however!
If anyone took any photos and would be happy to share then please email them to the school office and we can let our Primary 1 children have a look!
