P6 have been learning about the rooms in the house and what we use them for.
P6 love a sing song……almost as much as Ms Richardson!
Learning, growing, caring, sharing.
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.
Autumn is Here
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.
Today in PE, Primary 4/5 were working on the Significant Aspects of ‘Focus and Concentration’ alongside ‘Gross and Fine Motor Skills’ with Mr Flett.
We warmed up by playing some games before working on our throwing and catching skills. We worked in teams to carry out races with a challenge to help us develop our focus and concentration.

P6 are taking part in Midlothian’s Mi:Space Project.
We will be developing our classroom into a modern space to enhance our learning environment. We will be given the chance to change furniture, furnishings and try new equipment.
We have been trying different learning zones in our current classroom to give us some ideas and let us see our classroom doesn’t have to be the traditional space it has been known for so long.
Take a look at our video we made using green screen technology and iMovie.
P6 have had a good day making their daily mile count!
We decided that our daily mile should matter so we planned a route around visitor attractions in Midlothian and some a bit further afield.
We will have our daily mile passports that will be stamped when we walk far enough to reach our visitor attractions.
Using map reading skills and measuring skills we mapped out our route and calculated ‘as the crow flies’ distances in miles.
When we reach an attraction we will use ICT to research the site and produce leaflets, presentations and our new padcaster to share our findings.
Watch out for our updates!
