P7 visited the National Library of Scotland this week to learn about Ernest Shackleton and his treacherous expedition to the Antarctic. This ties in with our Health and Well-being focus of ‘Resilience.’
Our group leader Callum knew lots about the topic and was able to answer every question we had. He gave us an opportunity to wander round the expedition, take photos and take part in some drama related to the background story.
The end result of this wonderful visit was a P7B silent movie starring US as Shackleton’s crew, heading off on ‘Endurance’ to the Antarctic, failing and then being finally rescued. What a fantastic day we had!!
We had a very informative assembly on Monday and then were lucky to have a workshop in our class on Tuesday. The children learned about different types of abuse that can happen and where they can go to for help. As well we all learned the important number to ring if they need to contact ‘Childline’ for support and advice.
Thank you to the ladies who took time to come in and discuss these really important issues with us.
Primary 7 went to see the Scottish Chamber Orchestra at the Ross Band Stand.
The concert took inspiration from the evening’s Virgin Money Fireworks Convert and included Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty, as well as Sir James MacMillan’s Stomp, and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies An Orkney Wedding.
Erin Morrison congratulates Su’a Li, a member of the Orchestra.
