Science and Engineering Club

We have been having fun over the last few weeks learning more about circuits, working on some electronic circuits and using them to make Christmas cards with lights.  Here are a couple of examples.

Stark Enterprises Class Economy Party

We are having an unusual Golden Time today.  Stark Enterprises is having a relaunch party as part of our class economy.  Stark Enterprises run by Callum has organised a number of events as part of the party including an auction for Robert's legendary lemon drizzle cake and a Joseph Dream coat.  VIP's are also being treated to special snacks while in the general area people are paying for a shot of a sweetie grabbing machine.  A lot of hard work has gone into the event and everyone is learning more about money and entrepreneurial skills.

Move over Warren, there are a lot of entrepreneurs are on your tail.

Talented Primary Sevens

Our Primary 7s have been working hard to earn their Junior Award Scotland, Me and My Interests Award. Their talents and creativity never cease to amaze us.  Just some of the wonderful things they have been working on are: sketching skills, cartoons, animation, baking (we are particularly enjoying sampling the baking), knitting, sewing, origami, book reviews and soup making.  We will post more examples of the children's work soon.  In the meantime however, below you can see a fantastic sketch of a wolf by Robert.

More Sporting Success for Anna

Congratulations, Anna in P7B for achieving first place in the Shot Put and third place in the High Jump at an Edinburgh Athletics tournament. Well done on your Cross Country trophy, too!

P7B Ghosts of War workshop at Edinburgh Castle

We began our visit in the Scottish National War Memorial where we held a minute's silence. After a short break we explored part of the National War Museum, finding out about real people from history. By then we were getting hungry and all enjoyed the lunch break. 
In the afternoon we used notes we had made throughout the morning to help us write some super poetry.
Well done P7B, you worked together to make this a fantastic trip.
Many thanks to our workshop leaders, Lorna and Ken.
