What an fantastic week we’ve had. Here is a slideshow of our amazing French workshop, ‘A Suitcase of Paris’ along with photos of the Yester Halo Championship 2013. Well done to Alex, Emma and Lucy whose team won the tournament with 78 points.
This week we made two trips into the woods to find out more about trees, learn about microorganisms and look for inverebrates. We also had time for a game of ballaram. In maths the class went into the grounds to calculate the height of trees with the help of a clinometer. Here are some snaps.
Next week will be just as exciting. As well as continuing with our Living Forests project we will be going full steam ahead on our enterprise project. If you haven’t heard yet, we’re launching a chocolate company with help from one of the school’s business partners, The Chocolate Tree in Haddington. At the moment the class are working in teams on an Apprentice-style task to produce an image and packaging for their chocolate bar. Also coming up:
Monday – Childline Workshop
Tuesday – Sports Day
Wednesday – Trip to Aubigny Centre
Thursday - Violin Concert
Friday – ‘Friday Feeling’ activity run by the school’s health committee
I have all children in the class details of the travel arrangements for the transition days to Knox. This includes pick-up point and time for collection by the bus. Those living outside the catchment area will have to make their own way, and those living in Haddington will have to walk!
