Don’t Lose Your Lunchbox!

This picture is of a small section of our football playground at the end of a lunchtime.

We of course always try to reunite lunchboxes, tiffin tins and tupperwares with their owners at the time but as you can see from the picture the amount of lost items, and number lacking identifying features, can make be hard.

Sadly our lost property turns into a lunchbox mountain over the course of a term.

So if you can in any way mark your boxes with a name that would be very helpful. Either written in permament marker on the box, written on masking tape on the box or a proper name sticker. Even just a big sticker with a picture on that help’s the child identify their box and be a bit keener to care for it can help.

If you have lost a lunchbox or any property remember to check lost property.

P6 and 7 Opera Aliens

This week P6 and P7 were joined by Scottish Opera to perform THE LAST ALIENS at St Brides Centre.

It was really amazing to finally be able to do one of the big calendar events of the year in a way that was nearly normal. But sadly that nearly meant parents and carers couldn’t attend.

We hope the above recording goes a long way to making up for not being able to come.

So please enjoy the AMAZING performance by our talented P6s and P7s!

Maths Enrichment Opportunities From Edinburgh University

Edinburgh University are offering 2 opportunities to stretch those number brains

Here it the information they have sent us.

Online Maths Circle- Saturday 26th March 2022

An online Maths Circles is one hour long events for 7-14 years old and their families. Children have a chance to tackle a variety of mathematical problems guided by University of Edinburgh staff and students. They are encouraged to behave as little mathematicians as they make conjectures, explore and explain possible solutions to open ended questions. We think these event would benefit all students, and not only the high achieving.

Most of the activities we use during our Maths Circles are courtesy of nRich (https://nrich.maths.org/

The next online Maths Circle will be this Saturday (26th March). Attendance is free but booking is required. 

Further details and info on how to book can be found at: https://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/school-of-mathematics/outreach/maths-circle 

Circles in Maths, Nature and Everyday Life (Edinburgh Science Festival): 9th- 13th April 2022

In April 2022 we will contribute to the Edinburgh Science festival with a drop-in session taking place at the National Museum of Scotland. Our activities will explore the characteristics of the circle, and how such characteristics underpin various aspects of science, technology and everyday life, such as using a map or rolling a coin through a vending machine.
