On Monday we had our brilliant annual visit from folk duo The Sorries in celebration of Scots Week. This was arranged in conjunction with Soundstep workshops who also provided a bodhran drumming workshop for P7 and P3/4.
Thank you to The Sorries, Soundstep Workshops and to all of our student performers.
They led us all in traditional folk songs and were ably supported by singers from some of our classes.
We finished with a great whole school rendition of Auld Lang Syne

BIG SING END OF YEAR CELEBRATION
We all enjoyed taking part in a ‘Big Sing’. We went to the school hall and Mrs Ewen played the piano. We sang nursery rhymes and songs we learned in the nursery and at home as part of our Sponsored Rhyme. We hope you enjoy the photos.
Thank you to all of you for coming and to those children, friends and family who raised over £100 for the nursery!!! We are going to think about something to buy, possibly a music ‘boom box’ that we can use inside and outside when we want to sing and dance.
Baby song sessions are being run at the Gorgie Salvation army church for babies up to 18 months.
See poster below for details.
Our P5 violinists are doing great work in their lessons.
Their persistence and practice is really paying off and they are starting to use musical notation.
Well done and keep bowing!
