Charities and Maths Week!


 At the start of this week the whole school voted for which charities they thought the school should support this year. Two people from each class prepared a presentation about their charity and at the end everyone voted for their favourite charity. The charity with the most votes was Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland as presented by Fergus Oswald therefore that will now be the school’s priority when fundraising. Well done to everyone who presented a charity!

We all enjoyed it because the majority of us went up very high. Mr. Weedon also took part,he was actually  really good and went to the highest and the steepest point and never fell.

STEM work shop

On Thursday P7 went to the Edinburgh College to a STEM workshop. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. There were 5 activities and the first activity was rocket cars.

We had to design a car that would go fast and then the instructors carved it how we wanted. After that we all went outside to test how fast they were after the instructors put the rockets in

After that we had the other 4 work shops which were: egg drop, math problems, computing and  building a card bridge. We all enjoyed doing the activities, and working with P7s from other schools.



Fun outdoors with Class 4

Class 4 set off for Vogrie last Tuesday, to build dens and learn about lighting fires. We worked well in small groups, listening to each others’ ideas and suggestions, and being prepared to compromise to reach our goals. We’re looking forward to going out again soon. Thanks for taking us, Mrs Harvie!

Moorfoot Medal and More

This week class 4 has been working hard doing all sorts of things including French. We have been writing sentences about us and drawing colourful frames to put them in. Since we have been focusing on our writing we have been learning a lot about connectives and trying to put them in our writing. The assembly this week was about Moorfoot medal which is where you learn new,different skills and record them in your book and you get a certificate. This year many children entered it and have been learning a variety of new skills including dance,baking,climbing,helping clean around the house and more. It was great to see how many children gave it a go. Next week is World Book Day so on Friday you can dress up as your favourite book character. It is going to be so much fun!

December Celebration Assembly

Lots of pupils received awards for being Maths Magicians and Rocking Writers at our recent Celebration Assembly. Certificates were also presented to children who had shown qualities linked to the school’s vision and values, and to those who had achieved success outwith school. 

Pantomime and Power in Class 4

In class 4 last week we did a workshop about solar power at the Mining Museum. We got mini solar cars and tried to move them using solar energy, it was hard. It was a very fun experience and everyone loved it.

As well as the solar power workshop there was an amazing pantomime Jack and the Bean Stalk it was so funny and we got ice cream.

In writing we have had to do the last chapter of our class novel ‘Run Zan Run’. It was a cliff hanger at the end of the last chapter, and we had to write the next bit.
