P6 Assembly Extravaganza!

The P6 Egyptian Assembly EXTRAVAGANZA! 

Performing on Thursday 21st September

The papyrus is rustling and the pyramids are getting built, preparation for the Primary 6 assembly has officially begun!

Pupils have been super busy learning about all different aspects of Ancient Egyptian life, including Egyptian clothing.  We would like each pupil to apply what they have learned and be dressed in an Ancient Egyptian style outfit for the assembly itself. Bed sheets and pillow cases will come in handy, as every pupil has already made beautiful jewellery to accessorize with!

Please bring your Egyptian outfit into school on Tuesday 18th September, for our dress rehearsal.

We can’t wait to see you all looking fabulous!

P7 Show – HONK!

The end of term is coming racing towards us and P7 are already elbow deep in rehearsals for our end of year show.honk

Attached is a copy of the proposed rehearsal timetable.  We will be rehearsing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in school 2.15 to 3.15 as a whole year group, but we also have access to the school hall on Thursdays and Fridays after school.  Using the hall allows the pupils to really understand the space they have to use, and the volume of voice they need to use!

I have tried to get this right, and need the children to check which rehearsals they are needed for and add these dates to your calendar at home.  Any mistakes, omissions or conflicts please get in touch to see if they can be rectified.

It will be alright on the night.

It WILL be alright on the night…

P6 STEM Reflections

“I learned that STEM gets your brain working hard so you can complete challenges.” – Cara.

“STEM is science, technology, engineering and maths. My group made an Olympic kite representing Greece.” -Grace.

“Our STEM skills helped us build our kites and understand the importance of having a good, strong structure.” – Abbie.

“I enjoyed the making and flying parts. I learned how to fly a kite.” – Frankie.

“I learned that building suspension is always a good thing, but to not put too much on otherwise it will weigh the kite down. I enjoyed flying the kite in the field and the suspension worked!” ‘Kyle.

“We learned how to catch the wind to make it fly.” – Freya.

“We learned proper teamwork is probably best because someone might be good at maths more than the others, and another person might be more observant of the structure of the Kite.” – Christopher.
