P7 Maths Week Scotland

P7 had a fun Friday morning doing a rotation of mathematical games and solving word problems as part of maths week Scotland! These games are also available for them to take home and play as well as our Read, Write, Count resources.

Harvest Festival

The Clan Chiefs and Deputes organised an amazing Harvest Foodbank Collection. The many generous donations from our families were collected at our recent Parents Consultations after the Clan Chief group spoke at assembly and sent flyers home with all of our children to promote the collection. The group organised and displayed the collection in Mrs Honeyman’s office before packing the collection up in an organised way to drop off at Gorgie Salvation Army. The group helped to load up Mrs Honeyman’s tiny car with the collection, and Aoife helped Mrs Honeyman to deliver the donations.

P7 Parliament Project

P7 have been learning about the Scottish Parliament this term!

We’ve learnt about the history of Scottish politics, devolution and the roles and responsibilities of MSP’’s. We’ve written fantastic letters to MSP’s and enjoyed debating against each other’s political parties!

We had a fantastic trip to the Scottish Parliament and have had a visit from a local MSP, Gordon Lindhurst. We asked lots of brilliant questions about his job and about Brexit!

 

First Parent Council Meeting TODAY

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

The first Parent Council meeting of the year will take place on Monday 9th September from 4-5PM in room 3. (P7 classroom on the ground floor)

There will be a creche for school aged children from 4-5PM in room 7. The creche will be supervised by Miss Smith, one of our Pupil Support Assistants.

One of the items the Parent Council will be discussing are changes to the way in which the EAL (English as an Additional Language) Service will operate. There will be members from the ASL Service to talk to parents and answer any questions.

It is very important that as many parents as possible try to attend this meeting to ensure that your views are heard.

 

Kind regards
