A class conversation about fractions, in P5 last week, circled around into a conversation about degrees when Matt showed Miss Stein his exceptional knowledge of how to segment a circle.
On Wednesday the school was lucky to recieve a visit from a quartet of members from The Red Note Ensemble.
“Since its formation in 2008, Red Note Ensemble has taken up a leadership position as Scotland’s contemporary music ensemble, performing and developing both an extensive, highly-varied and critically-acclaimed programme of new music.”
The quartet performed for P6 and P5 in their classrooms, bringing the pupils into contact with pieces by Janáček and Shostakovitch, amongst others.
Many members of P6 and P5 were visibly enthused by the experience, referring to it afterwards as “extreme” and “exciting”.
Thank you very much to the Red Note members for their kind visit.
P5 would like to say thank you to the Parent Council for the funds to transform our class library area into a calm and relaxing space which we love spending time in.
(And thanks too to Mrs Mason for making sure it was all ready for us coming back to school last week)
