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

P6b and P4 Theatre Workshops

P6b and P4 have an exciting opportunity to visit the Brunton Theatre to see the fabulous show “Bamberts Book of of Lost Stories” on Tuesday 30 May. The show has been described by theatre reviewers as a small, perfectly formed masterpiece that imaginatively explores the idea that stories can change the world.”

To support the performance, the Imaginate organisation offered whole day Workshops for each class, during which the pupils worked with real theatre set designers to create miniature “shoe box” theatre sets. It was a fantastic day and their work will be on display at the theatre.

Heritage Themed Easter Egg Competition

We really enjoyed admiring the many creative entries into our annual Easter egg decorating competition. Well done to everyone who took part in this creative home learning project. The theme of heritage was creatively interpreted by so many of our pupils.


Sumdog Leader board

Great job Tanisha  (3rd in the Edinburgh Sumdog competition) and Alan  (11th)  out of 3,000 students!!  
P6b were leading the Daily Class Winners for 21 March at 3.15pm yesterday, but pupils from two other schools worked on into the evening at home and pipped us. However, we managed 3rd place. Great fun!
