Class 4 become civil engineers!


What a busy week for class 4! Luckily for us we were off to the Mining Museum. We built a mini Forth Road Bridge with the help of some engineers. It took a lot of team work but we persevered and managed to get the job DONE! We all got to cross the bridge and thankfully it didn`t break. Congratulations to Jemma, Blair, Callum,Naomi, Lockie,Sofia and Eliot who won the Scottish poem competition. Hopefully we will have another week as exciting as this one was!

Chinese New Year/Sportshall Athletics

Class 4 have had a very exciting week! Last week on Friday, Mrs Tan came in and did an assembly about Chinese New Year. Yu-lei Tan, Euan Tan and Rachel Tait took part. Well done guys! We learned about kung-fu and Mrs Tan told us a story about Chinese New Year. Furthermore, class 4 went to an athletics tournament on Monday! There were lots of different events like running, long jump, javelin, high jump and lots, lots more. Even Ms Wilson joined in and had a go at the teachers’ javelin! Even though we didn’t win, everyone did absolutely amazingly and showed great manners and sporting behaviour. Well done class 4!
