P7B In Fruit-Based Device Shop Trip

P7B enjoyed an exciting trip to the Apple Store on Princes Street last week.  On arrival we were given some free t-shirts which was a lovely surprise!

We were there to discuss Internet Safety and we created podcasts in pairs, highlighting the dangers of using the internet and giving advice for young people on how to stay safe.  For some of us, this was our first time making podcasts, and we will be definitely using them again within our new World War 2 IDL.

A special thanks to the Apple store as not only did we get t-shirts, but the staff kindly copied our podcasts onto our own individual  USB wristbands, for us to take home- Amazing!

P7b Poppy Factory Visit

On Wednesday, P7 visited Lady Haig Poppy factory in Edinburgh.  What a fantastic day that was!

For the first hour, we had the pleasure of learning lots about WW2 from an ex-Army Sergeant who surely keep us on our toes with this stories and his loud voice!

After getting the opportunity to try on some of the old clothes and weapons, we then made our way down to the factory floor where we found out how the poppies were made and the kinds of things the poppies were used for.

Finally, we finished off our day with some juice and even made poppies of our own to take home.  A great day was had by all and a huge thanks to Lady Haig Poppy Factory who made us so welcome when we were there

Be Resilient Unit 2 – Keep Connected

This term’s Be Resilient unit launches this week and is called “Keep Connected”.

Our launch assembly took place yesterday and a leaflet will be sent home by this week to give you more information on the topic.

There is also a digital copy of the Keep Connected Parent Carer Leaflet on this link.

Once again there will be a family (homework) task that we would ask you to support your child/children with.  Towards the end of the term the children will be invited to share the products of these family tasks at our Sharing Assembly, to celebrate, inform and inspire the other pupils.
