Sports Day prep has started! The P7s have been out in the sunshine (and the cold and rain sometimes!) having a go at tug of war, relays, sack races, javelin etc.
Well done to Jay & Ricky that ran round the field 10 times yesterday to get ready for the marathon!
P7 Sports Day is on Tuesday 11th June from 1.30 – 3pm at Lochend Campus. We hope to see lots of parents and supporters there on the day cheering us on!
If you have anything lying around at home that you think we could use for set design or props for the show PLEASE bring it to school as soon as possible
Old sheets, bubble wrap, old t-shirts etc – we’ll take it all!
We watched a short 3 minute clip today of Chris Hadfield, a Canadian astronaut, showing us ‘how to wring out a wet washcloth in space’. We all agreed that it’s amazing how such a simple task on Earth can be fascinating in space!
Here’s the link to the video if you want to share it with someone or watch more at home:
All P7 children in the cluster have now been given information about a swimming afternoon on Friday 31st May as part of the transition programme. All consent forms must be back to class teachers by Friday 17th May.
We are finally able to go outside in the sunshine for some RELAXING READING! Let’s hope the rain goes away and summer is finally here
A huge well done to EVERYONE in Primary 7 today (and the teachers!) for performing the reading dance to the rest of the school. We only had two sessions in the dance studio this week to learn the routine and it would never have been possible without the enthusiasm and hard work from you all!
A HUGE well done to the girls for taking the time to create the dance. They will now go on to show the rest of the school for a special project that is coming up…
On Thursday night a team of P7s competed in the East Lothian round of the Rotary Club Quiz. Catriona, Fraser, Hannah and Molly answered questions all areas of the curriculum and finished with a fantastic final score! We had fun cheering them on Well done!
A reminder that we will be visiting the Risk Factory tomorrow (Monday 22nd April) and ALL P7s need to bring a packed lunch.
P7B (Miss Eeles) and P7C (Miss Veitch) need to arrive at school for 8.30am. We would like to leave as soon as the bus arrives so please come at this time and don’t be late!
P7A (Miss Cooke) and P7D (Mrs Whitehead) should arrive at the normal school start time of 8.45am as they will be going to the Risk Factory in the afternoon. They will arrive back at school at approx 4pm.
Mrs Lyle organised year group dodgeball tournaments as part of Health Week. We heard lots of stories from the P4s, P5s and P6s earlier in the week about how much fun they had so we were really looking forward to it!
Some of the 7s had tactics and others just went for it! It was such a great morning and all 115 children behaved brilliantly, cheering each other on and enjoying the games.
In the end, P7B (my class!) were victorious! The games were very fast moving but we had a huge TEAM effort to get our prisoners back from the sin bin.
Well done to all classes for giving the games 100% and having fun! Mrs Whitehead, official photographer for today, will put up photos next week
P.S my muscles will definitely be aching tomorrow!!
Earlier in the week we tried bowling, played basketball and today we went along for an Acti-fit session in the dance studio. We had a brilliant time! Take a look at some of the photos below:
