Primary 6 have taken on their next challenge!

As part of our mi:Space project we will be carrying out a Robotics project.

We had a look at what lies ahead…..

Today we took the next step….building our base drive! Our first robot…..how exciting!

We used ‘THINK-DO-TEST’ to help us work through the challenge:

-We had to think about our Task.
-then we got hands-on to build our robots….following the instructions carefully.
-then we tested our robots to see if we had met our challenge.

We used co-operative learning strategies we use in other lessons to ensure everyone had the chance to take part.

After having some time to build our robots we were able to talk about the challenge, identify things that went well, think about things we might do differently and discuss our next steps.

We are looking forward to our next robotics challenge!


We look forward to welcoming Parents/Carers to our ‘Music & Mince Pies’ Festive Morning.

Please enter through dining hall doors rather than main school entrance.  Doors will open for refreshments from 9.00am.  Donations for refreshments greatly appreciated.

Our pupils have been working very hard making Christmas Crafts which will be on sale also.

P6 enjoyed taking on a new challenge today.  They tried their hand at CODING.  Learning how their favourite gaming platforms are created. Trying to program their characters to complete tasks.

An Hour of Code

Daniel takes gold, Gold, GOLD!


Hi, I’m Daniel and I am a member of UKTC, which stand for United Kingdom Taekwondo Council.


Yesterday I was at a competition at Southside Community Centre, Edinburgh. I won 3 gold medals for 3 different events.  I took my 1st gold in patterns.  The second was special technique/flying high kick.  The third was for sparring.


I recommend TKD for everyone!  It’s a great sport and lots of exercise!

Congratulations Daniel!  Keep up the hard work…..FANTASTIC achievement!

From everyone at Mayfield Primary School

Harvest at Mayfield!

Wednesday saw the whole school come together for our Harvest Assembly.

Classes helped decorate the hall with Autumn leaves, poems and drawings to help us celebrate Harvest.  Many donations of food were brought to the table.



We would like to thank everyone for there kind donations. This year we gave our collection of food to the Midlothian Foodbank based in Gorebridge. After the holiday a group of children will have the chance to visit the foodbank to see and hear how it supports our local communities.


For more information about the ‘Midlothian Foodbank’ please click the logo above.

We watched some Autumn poem films made by the P6 children with their new Padcaster. They shared how to use green screen with learners around school. The short films show us using signalong to share our poems with our whole school community.

Ms Richardson told us the story ‘The Enormous Turnip’ with the help of the Primary 7 children. Everyone LOVED the story and the acting skills shown by the Primary 7’s!



Thank you to everyone who helped make our films and our assembly a great success.

We hope you all have a fantastic October break and we will see you all on Monday 24th October.
