trimontium visitor

Rob came to talk to us about the Roman fort near Melrose and to show us some of the artefacts that have been found there.  We got to hold a 1800 year old Roman playing piece from a game and also got to try on some replica armour. It was great fun but we decided being a soldier must have been hard work as the armour was very heavy!


Beebots and Bear Hunts!

P4/5 shared their digital skills with ELC recently by helping them learn how to do some simple programming using little robots called Beebots. Linking to the story ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’, P4/5 made some bear costumes for the Beebots and a simple map of some places from the story. The ELC boys and girls then learned how to program the Beebots to get the bear robot back to his cave! The children had to use what they have been learning about positional language and sequencing to plan the bear’s route. Well done everyone!
