Our nursery class are taking part in National Outdoor Classroom Day 2017. We are toasting marshmallows, cooking in the mud kitchen, making giant artwork and relaxing in the chill out tent! We love learning outdoors!
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?
This week in Primary 7 we have been designing our very own resilience superheroes to promote resilience across the school. The children thought about resilience means to them and came up with a huge word bank to help describe to others what a resilience superhero would demonstrate. We then uploaded our photos to comic caption and created a comic style picture with our ideas. Check out some of our work here!
This week P7A have been doing a variety of things related to financial education week. One activity involved us looking at credit cards and their hidden costs so that we can make sensible money choices in the future. We then got into groups and created our very own adverts for our own cards.
Check out some of the example advertisements we made.

After the holidays Craigour Reading Radio will begin to run bi-weekly shows. All the ‘staff’ at the station have been working hard behind the scenes, releasing some demo material and look forward to getting the properly started in the new year. As one final practice we had Raymond from the ‘Reading Responsibility Group’ on talking about what he’s been reading. Check it out here!
And keep up the reading Craigour!

P7a have been taking part in another exciting project with Edinburgh University. Stuart Gray from the Uni has been working with the children on his Brainquest app and we have been really excited to take part in this research. Everyone enjoyed the app and the problem solving aspect as well as the physical activity. Well done to our leader board winners, Leigha, Melissa and Mohamed and thank you to Stuart for persevering with the project through this unusual time!
