Over the past week Primary 7 have been working on the school’s castle project. We have had fun turning our classroom into a castle armoury. We have made lots of weapons using recycled materials. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN !
P7 went to Direlton Castle on Tuesday to investigate whether or not it had returned. In the morning before we left we received a scroll from the Keeper of the Keys. The Keeper asked us to bring back evidence of our visit to show that we had really been to the castle and we had not just read about it in the guide book.
We discovered that Dirleton castle had returned and we spent the morning exploring and finding out as much insider information as we could to prove to the Keeper of the Keys that we really had been there.
A flash, a bang, a sizzle, a crack!
Everything‘s bright, then suddenly black.
No time to think, it happened so fast.
The castles are gone! A spell was cast.
I turned around and looked to see
A label was left- but where was the key?
I instantly knew that something was wrong!
I need your help. This spell is too strong.
Without our castles, it’s all so tragic!
Without the key there is no magic!
Only young minds like yours will do,
Work together to think it through.
Take the challenge, it’s up to you.
Unlock the spell- the key’s the clue!
The Keeper of the Keys
On Tuesday, the whole school enjoyed the wonderful pantomime, Aladdin. There was lots of singing, jokes and funny happenings! The children and teachers all joined in with all the fun and laughter. The pantomime was kindly subsidised by the Parent Council, who also treated everybody to an ice-cream! Thank you from all at Sanderson’s Wynd!
Here are a couple of activities P7 can do based on our Space topic.
You can find the information you will need on
You can also try to look at the stars (If it ever stops snowing long enough!!). Winter nights can be the best time to look at the constellations. See if you can see the “Plough” or “Orion”. You might be lucky enough to spot a satellite orbiting the earth!
