Evacuation!

_DSC3974

Our brave P7 evacuees left early this morning on their coach bound for Coldingham! So many worried faces, unsure about their futures…

This event has been running between partner schools for years now, and on arrival the children will be billeted with new “families” then spend the day enjoying WWII related activities, from baking carrot biscuits to learning how to jive.

The accompanying staff members even dressed up too; see the screen inside the front door for more pictures!

 

Whit ye bletherin’ aboot?!

Guid mornin, hoo’s it gaun?

As you know Queensferry Primary are celebrating all things Scottish during our special week starting on Monday 25 January.

We are lucky enough to be part of a mini-project about different Scots dialect around the country, in which various Primary Schools are getting together and sharing information about their area and parts of their language.

Our job is to think of as many words as we can that are used specifically in the Edinburgh area and explain what they mean. 

To start us off, Primary 7 have thought of ‘shan’ meaning that something is unfair.

Any ideas are appreciated – just simply comment on this post. The final project will be displayed in the upper stages library.

Guid luck, bye for noo!
