P6A & B were very happy to welcome P6C up at JGPS today to show them where we have been based over the past few months. We spent some time playing football and rounders in the Bruntsfield Links and generally enjoying some fresh air before heading back in for some lunch (our last at JGHS).
It was great to see the three classes all playing together and working in different teams. And although we’ve really enjoyed our adventure up at JGPS, we’re very much looking forward to being reunited again after the holidays.
A huge thank you to JGPS for being so welcoming to us all. 😊
P6A were all smiles today during our wee visit to our new temporary classroom up at JGPS. A new adventure awaits us in the new year but first, a nice long holiday for everyone. See you in January 😊
Congratulations to Calum who was awarded coach’s player of the year, and to Daniel who was also awarded coach’s player as well as player’s player of the year at this week’s Edinburgh South awards evening. We are all very impressed and very proud. 👏🏻
On Monday 29 October, Primary 6 enjoyed a sunny day out at Edinburgh Zoo. As part of the pupils’ Living and Growing topic, they attended the Cycle of Life workshop led by the wonderful staff in the education centre.
The staff spoke to the children about how some animals find a mate, how they reproduce and how they look after their young. We also had an interesting discussion about the changes animals go through during puberty and got to see a video of a baby elephant from inside the womb. Mr Hutchison, Mr Mitchell and I were all very impressed with how engaged the three classes were and how mature they were during the discussions. Well done, kiddies.
After lunch we had a lovey afternoon power walking our way to the top of the zoo to see the big cats and the zebra. Our favourites, however, were the chimps and the monkeys, who we could have watched all day!
Thank you, P6, for a lovely day out, and special thanks to Calum’s mum, Bethan’s mum, Eddie’s dad and Jennifer’s gran for coming with us.
