Mrs Honeyman’s Tea Party

One of Mrs Honeyman’s favourite parts of her job is having a tea party every Friday with the chosen ‘Pupil of the Week’ from each class. This week the children were chosen by their teachers and peers for good listening, deep thinking, confident speaking, being a good friend to newly arrived pupils, improvements in reading, being responsible and overcoming their fear of water at the swimming pool.

Doors Open Day

The weekend of September 28th is Doors Open Day across Edinburgh.

Doors open is an amazing event sponsored by the Cockburn Association where buildings normally closed to the public throw open their doors. Many also put on family friendly activities.

A full guide is available on this link.

This year highlights Dalry families may be interested in include:

Learn about University STEM learning at Edinburgh University Kings buildings. (Flyer linked here.) (best for P6 and P7).

Heriot Watt also have an amazing range of STEM activities on this link.

Find out more about bodies at a museum that is normally only for medical students at the Anatomical Museum (info here)

Lots of our Forest School pupils will have wondered what’s inside the spooky tower on the hill. Now you can go in to find out. Click here for more info

Have a look behind the scenes, literally, at The King’s Theatre. Click here.

One of the best family activities to be had in Edinburgh – Get insdide the bus garage and take a ride through the bus wash, sit in the drivers seats and ride vintage buses from Haymarket for just a normal bus fare. This year they are going big for the centenary of Lothian Buses. On Sunday there will even be a bus parade. Details here.
