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.
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.
On 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.
