Dalry Primary School first team won Best P6/7 Intermediate Level Team at the Lothian Junior Chess Team Tournament on the 4th of November.
Team members were Adni (P7),Ashil (P6), Adam (P7) and Fabio (P7).
Dalry Primary entered a P5 and under Team for the first time they did really well and enjoyed their first tournament.
Earlier in the year two Dalry pupils, Ilamaran and Rishon received medals for winning matches at the October chess taster sessions.
P4-7 were appropriately spooky at their party
We had an amazing Hallowe’en party on Tuesday night. The children from P1 to P7 who attended all loved the hall decorations, party games, prizes and snack. Many thanks to all of the staff who gave up their time to attend and support their classes, and also to Miss Low who did an amazing job of running both parties. I’d like to say a special thank you to Mrs Smith the janitor for her amazing hard work and effort in organising the entire party for us.
Primary 7 recently visited The Poppy Factory as part of their WW2 project.
They were given the opportunity to handle items and learn what life was like during WW2.
They were then allowed on to the factory floor to see how poppies are made and they then helped to make poppies in aid of the @poppyscotland appeal.
Primary 7 recently went to Tynecastle High School for their first transition visit.
The focus was science and My World of Work.
The upper school (P4/3, P4, P5, P6 and P7) Halloween party will take place on Tuesday 30th of October from 6.45-7.45PM
Entry cost is £2 payable in class.
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!
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.
