We enjoyed a lovely morning at the Centre learning about nature, weather and the seasonal changes of Autumn. The Centre is a wonderful riverside setting here in Edinburgh and would make a great family outing at the weekend too!
We enjoyed getting started with this year’s Master Class programme. The classes on offer this term are Yoga, running, Chinese craft, Lego movie making, cards, orienteering, geometric art, chess and hamabeads.
Some of our P7 coders had a fun time learning about robots by doing a teardown on Marty, with our friends from Robotical.
Next week the challenge will be to put them back together!
It was great to have so many helpers today, it meant that we were able to explore even further into the forest. Some boys and girls went on a mushroom hunt, while others enjoyed using the binoculars to look for birds. The children worked well in small groups to play a blindfold game.
The pupil’s had great fun exploring the forest. They made stick men pictures which we showed to the Primary 1 pupils who had been enjoying Julia Donaldson’s Stickman story in class.
We all got a good work out when we tried to make butter last week. Our first attempt with single cream failed but we tried again with double cream and were delighted with the results!
The children shook cream in a bottle, after a while we noticed that the sound it made and texture had changed. When we opened the bottle we discovered that we had made butter and buttermilk.

Mr McDonald, Maths Teacher from Tynecastle High School delivered a maths lesson to Primary 7.
The focus of this lesson was cracking different types of code. The class started with semaphore before learning about Caesar ciphers and pigpen ciphers.
Primary 7 have been investigating whether the design of a paper aeroplane effects how far it will fly.
The class worked in groups of 3 and made 4 different styles of paper aeroplane. They then took them outside to see how far they would fly.
