Primary 6T Bikeability 08.03.17
Next week P6T are receiving their Bikeability training. The bike checks are now taking place on Wednesday 15th March, as well as the training sessions. In order to make the best of the training, the class will participate in a cycling skills lesson on Monday 13th March. Therefore, all pupils in P6T need to bring their bike and helmet (if you have them) on Monday and Wednesday next week.
Thank you for your continued support.
Primary 5 are making food for astronauts this Wednesday and the children have been asked to bring in small amounts of foods to help them in this learning activity. Only small amounts are needed because they are already being given the base of oatmeal and raisins. They designed these products this afternoon.
Please find attached the information for parents and children on our upcoming trip to Ardmay.
Some children from Primary 5 took part in a volleyball festival at Meadowbank Stadium. One of our teams even won all of their games. Well done to all of the children who took part.
The First Blog of 2017!
23rd of January: We got our new CLIC maths groups and then we started to look at time in maths. Then we watched an educational living and growing video about how babies are made. Next the people who needed to recite their poem again got a chance to do so and the people that had already recited their poem self assessed it on the SC grid. Then we worked on our Egypt project on mummies and played handball in PE. YAY!
24th of January: On Tuesday we started off our day by writing a Scots language mingin recipe. After that we looked at all the different time zones in Europe. We learnt that there are 4 main different time zones in Europe. Then we had our Burns Poetry Semi-Finals competition. Ewan, Abbie and Bryce competed for our class and Abbie got through to the finals which is on Friday.
25th of January: We had our CLIC maths session and then we finished our European time zones work. We had an awesome break after that we played netball in P.E. and we were learning how to use useful tactics while working as a team. Finally, it was HOME TIME!
26th of January: Firstly, we looked at our OneDrive and our e-mails and found out how to work it. Then after break time we had art with Mrs Love and we were looking at watercolour and finishing off our Paul Klee inspired wax art. In the afternoon, firstly we started taking notes for our Chapter Two of our Egypt Project and we were looking at how we can make an interesting and engaging introduction to it.
27th of January: Firstly, we presented our non-fiction reading homework in pairs. Secondly we wrote Kyle’s Special Person comments. Then we went to the Burns supper in the gym hall and we had haggis, neeps and tatties. We heard the contestants say their poem for the Burns poetry Final and they were all really good.

On Tuesday 31st January P2H and P2L will be having a visit from Paul Pizza of Enjoy-a-ball! During their PE lesson the children will receive a taster session showing them what the after school club has to offer. After practising some ball skills with the children, in a fun and exciting way, Paul will provide each with a leaflet telling them how they can join one of the Enjoy-a-ball clubs in South Queensferry should they wish to. You can look out for the leaflets in bookbags next week!

It’s been a while since our last post, but we’ve not been lazing around in that time!
The October week was much needed after Benmore, and washing machines were put to the test getting rid of a week’s worth of mud and grime. And that was just the teachers… Since then the children have been putting the finishing touches to their important Benmore booklets which will serve as evidence towards the Adventure section of the JASS work.
We enjoyed a second world war “rationing” day. The children got to Make Do and Mend (sewing buttons and patches onto old clothes) before showing off their skills in a fashion show, and tried regrowing vegetables such as leeks and spring onions as a way to make food go further. The final activity was making carrot cookies with Mrs Thomson, proving that everything can go into a cake as long as you add enough sugar to it.
The NSPCC came to visit us, speaking about staying safe and reminding us of the Childline phone number, 0800 1111.
We then got down to work on our Remembrance Assembly. Our visit to the poppy factory was a fantastic way to start this work, talking to the ex-servicemen and listenng to the wonderfully presented stories from the trenches. Following that we visited the cemetery with Mr Cameron who helped us understand the purpose and significance of the graves and the people who were buried there.
Our assembly on Friday 11th was very well attended, thank you everybody, and covered so many aspects of our topic work in presentations packed with examples of the children’s hard work.
Coming up in the next few weeks will be learning debating skills with pupils from Queensferry High School, taking part in Bible Alive with our SU teachers and then, unbelievably, it will be time for ceilidhs and decorations!
