RSPB Schools Birdwatch

Today Glen Tyler came to help us to complete the annual school grounds survey. We went out in four groups during the morning. We walked around the school grounds and then recorded what we had seen and submitted the results online. We also looked at last year’s results for the UK and Scotland. They were slightly different.

We saw house sparrows, starlings, a blackbird, herring gull and two mallard!

Primary 7 Assembly

This afternoon Primary 7 did something a little bit different for their assembly / show of learning. They split into four groups to explain about all the  things that they were finding out about in Block 1. Each group split into two teams to make display boards and explain all about Pneumatics, Electricity, Enterprise and John Muir. The school split into their Focus Friday groups and parents joined the teams to visit each of the four workshops.

Toby did a fantastic job of timekeeping to keep us all on track, and everyone seemed to find their way from group to group.

After that, Primary 7 played a short piece from the beginning of their Radio Scotland Junior Historians show, that they made in the autumn. And finally Drew played a ‘Thank you for listening’ film that he had made using his drone.

The Primary 7s really enjoyed doing their assembly like this and said that it was a lot more fun and they enjoyed speaking to smaller groups and doing lots of activities. Ms Scanlan was very proud of all of them and hopes that the audience were too.  Well done P7s!

Christmas Concert

This afternoon, we had our first Christmas concert and P7 were fantastic. Well done to everyone and especially to Mrs Inkster for all her help. The class started with Merry Christmas Eveyone. The instrumentalists played beautifully and the singers were superb. Then everyone sang Little Drummer Boy, Issac sang a solo, while Hannah played the keyboard. It all sounded wonderful.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE  🎄

You’ve still got time to see it tonight at 7.
