P6a Film Making

Children from P6A have been taking part in film-making with Rowanfield School this month. The movie is based around the theme of ‘Faith’ and has been made in conjunction with the Screen Education Edinburgh 2050 Vision project.
Here are a few photos showing our experiences and the new skills that we learned in the process.

We are very excited to see our film at a special screening on Monday 26th Jun 2017 at Cineworld Edinburgh.

P6 would like to thank Rowanfield School for kindly hosting us during the project including: helping us with our travel to and from their school, making us feel so welcome and of course…for the McFlurries!

Primary 6 Camp 2017

P6A and P6B joined up for a fantastic adventure to Bonaly Camp at the end of May. We enjoyed a three day, two night residential camp in the Pentland hills and enjoyed a challenging range of outdoor activites, including Archery, the Crate Stack, Climbing, the blindfolded Nightline challenge, the Mohawk Walk and Bushcraft Skills.
Pupils also enjoyed free time in the open air, team games and a campfire singalong. Needless to say, the dorms were noisy and full of fun! Mr Linton’s ghost stories and Mr Devine’s “lullabies” did little to help anyone sleep! The pupils met the challenge of tackling new skills and of looking after one another admirably – it will all last long in our memories.

What the pupils said:
“Crate stacking was amazing fun, though I got a wedgie from the harness when I was hanging in the air” Aiden
“It was great to be outside with my friends a lot.” Erin
“Bunking in our dorms and having a wild time!” Natasha
“Marshmallows!” Willow
“I loved Mr Linton’s creepy stories.” Mohammed
“Not being able to fall asleep and eating all the sweets.” Zoe

P6a Outdoor Science

P6A enjoyed Science outdoors on Thursday, exploring how planets revolve around the sun.

In groups, they drew the orbits of each planet and became planets themselves, spinning on their axis to make their way around the sun in a counter-clockwise direction.

Some of us felt a bit dizzy afterwards.

It was fantastic to get the opportunity to go outside for our learning in the sunshine.
