Primary 5 have been continuing their work on team building this term. Today the class set up an assault course and led a blindfolded partner around it. They had to give clear instructions to make sure their partner was safe at all times. They all really enjoyed it and were amazed how much they trusted each other to lead them around safely. I’m very impressed with how much their team work has improved this year! Miss Scrimgeour.
This afternoon a group of P6 and P7 children took part in our first Forest School session. They are going out weekly, whatever the weather, to learn outside in a forest environment. We had to take lots of equipment with us and carry it all to the site. It rained all afternoon but we quickly put up a shelter and used the ‘kelly kettle’ to make hot chocolate. The snowdrops are out in the woods just now, so we were really careful not to tread on them.
Here we are, getting ready to go.
On the 11th of February Don Ledingham visitied the Primary 6 and 7′s to share his version of Tam O’Shanter. It was very funny and we all really enjoyed it. Here is a video of his performance. Thank you to Don Ledingham for coming in to see us.
Here is a sample of the work that will be for sale.
P2 have been busy learning how to develop their printing skills. They have produced wonderful results. They are so good we have decided to frame them and sell them at the school’s open day on Friday the 12th of February. If you would like to buy one they will cost £3 and money will go to Haiti.
Congratulations to all our P4 and P5 pupils who took part in the Primary Schools Orienteering competition yesterday. Lewis Hamilton-Smith, Ruth Kowbel and Kieran Trotter finished in first place. Follow this link to see the results and images from the day.
On 1st February, P6 went to Edinburgh Castle to help them with their project on Mary Queen of Scots.
These are the pictures of us dressing up as Stuarts.
We held a Burns Supper on 2nd February. We gave speeches, sang, recited poems and danced. The haggis, neeps and tatties were yummy!
Primary 1 entertained us with a song called ‘Oor Wee Wean’.
Many thanks to Mrs Halliday for The Immortal Memory, Mr Flemington for piping in the haggis and Mrs Yule for being our chef.
