P2 Holyrood Palace Trip

Primary 2 took a trip to Holyrood Palace to learn more about Mary Queen of Scots and life in the past. We had the opportunity to handle different objects and become detectives to discover why and how these objects were used in the past.

We also got a tour around the palace.

P4 – Cooking

This week, Primary 4 have started to work on their Health and Wellbeing focus on how to cook safely and hygienically. With some excellent help from a parent who is a professional chef, we had fun measuring, chopping and mixing the ingredients. Last term we started looking at farming in other countries and now, in our groups, we are cooking recipes from these countries using ingredients that would grow there. On Tuesday, we were able to taste some wonderful Florida Strawberry Muffins and a delicious Spanish Omelette.

The class loved both the cooking and the tasting and we are very excited for the coming weeks with more brilliant dishes.

Picture Japan Winners!

Huge congratulations to our three prizewinners , ( Ursi, first prize P6, Suvi, third prize P5 and Megan, third prize P7 ), in this year’s ‘Picture Japan’ art competition run by the Japanese Consulate. The pupils were presented with certificates and prizes at the ‘Children’s Arts Day’ held at St Mary’s Cathedral in Palmerston Place.

Pirates Ahoy!

Pupils in p3 thoroughly enjoyed exploring ways of representing ‘Pirates’ when entering the Tesco Bank Art Competition for Schools! Their delightful work shows bold use of colour and composition and a range of media use including watercolour, oil pastels and chalks. Well done p3!

 

P6/7 – Cross Country

FullSizeRenderOn Monday 20th March our school was represented by 18 of our pupils who took part in the EPSSA Cross Country race at Duddingston Playing Fields. The race followed an undulating course around the fields for approximately 1700m. Each race was contested by roughly 250 pupils. Our children demonstrated true perseverance as they jostled to finish the race. They were a real credit to our school and will be receiving certificates later this week.
