Terrific Times Tables

We have been focusing on learning and consolidating our knowledge of the times tables in maths. On Thursday we visited a mixture of rotations to support our learning, and this morning we battled against Batman to see if we could answer lots of multiplication questions within 5 minutes, I’ve never seen the class so focused! Great job everyone and keep practising.


Carol singing raises funds for @crisis_uk

We were incredibly proud of all the primary 5 pupils today, for their continued effort and hard work they have put into our homelessness project.

This mornings carol singing was a huge success and we have managed to raise an incredible £510 for the charity Crisis. Thank you to all the families that turned up to support us, it was really appreciated!

We hope you have a cosy weekend to warm up and rest those voices!

Homeless project part 2

We had a great visit today from Joel’s Dad, Tim. He has had lots of experience working with homeless people both here in Edinburgh and in England. It was so interesting to hear what he does and the kids had some really interesting and well thought out questions for him.

We also had a run through of the songs we will be singing on Friday to raise money and awareness about homelessness. Performing outside made us realise how cold it will be, so remember lots of layers on Friday! If you are able to come along it would be great to see you!

Emotion Talks

The emotion talks chat boards are a great tool to discuss a real life situation or how a character feels in a book or film. P5B worked really well collaboratively to talk through the chat boards this morning. Everyone spoke with real confidence when sharing what they did with the rest of the class.
