Our House, in the Middle of Our Street!

P1/2 decided to have a creative afternoon today! We combined what we had learned about Recycling and 3D shapes with our topic, My Local Community. Using recycled materials gathered by staff and parents, we created models of our own homes. We decorated these with scrap paper.


It was really good to see everyone having fun creating their model! Great work everyone!

P2A Food Chain

P2A have been learning all about food chains this week. We have discovered that all food chains start with the sun and its energy and then move through a variety of different plants or animals. We had great fun demonstrating these chains by making masks to show the sequences. We even shared what we had learned with other classes at today’s assembly. A great job P2A.

The Things You See @ Running Club

Last Friday some of the elite members of Running Club went a mammoth run that took in the Royal Infirmary, the rope park and Craigmillar Castle before school had even begun. We had an amazing time and had an impromptu dance after coming across a Spanish lady playing some music at the top of the hill. Check it out!

P7A High School Transition

Over the course of four weeks P7A have attended Liberton H.S. as part of their transition project in preparation for high school. The children worked in the music department with Mr McCorquodale to create their own audiobooks based on the story of the hungry crocodile. This was a great experience and has given them a taste of what life at high school is like. A huge thank you to Mr McCorquodale and all of the adults who came to help each week. Why not have a listen to some of our work?
