Great new blog from Children’s Parliament on their ‘What Kind of Edinburgh?” project. Sciennes is very proud to participate in this innvoative and ambitious scheme to give young people a voice, reaching a high level through ‘Project Champions’:
“Some of the Project Champions are coming from the City of Edinburgh Council, NHS Lothian, Police Scotland. Some of them are people that make decisions about children’s services and schools, some others work in our communities and have the possibility to make important changes in the places where we live.”
Thank you to families who have already returned KIC Consent forms (formerly EE2s) to Class Teachers.
Lovely to see so many occasions where pupils from Preston Street and Sciennes have the opportunity to come together in a friendly environment.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all the P4b families for the very generous cards, gifts and warm wishes today. It has been a brilliant year and I am really looking forward to welcoming all the children back in August!
Love, Ms Mack X
As part of our work on weather, we investigated different climates and learned some of the technical words used in weather forecasts. After choosing which country we wanted to focus on, we used an atlas to learn about the average temperatures and rainfall. Finally we created our own weather symbols and then enjoyed present our forecasts to the class.
Our book club meetings have been going really well. I was delighted to see some people taking their learning to the next level. Theo and Hannako made models based on their book at home and Matthew and Claude spent their Golden Time coming up with some additional chapters of their reading book. Loving the enthusiasm!
We have been learning all about weather in p4 at the moment. Our homemade rain gauges have been put to good use already! We have also been learning about the different instruments used to measure weather and are creating our own weather forecasts tomorrow, trying to use lots of the technical weather words.
We had a great day yesterday and although the sun didn’t quite manage to shine, we still had lots of fun. Well done everyone for cheering each other on and making it a fun filled morning!
We were delighted to hear about Catie and Andrews sporting success at the weekend. Both took part in the junior run as part of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and Catie was 19th overall out of a total 394 runners! She was the 2nd girl to cross the line and we are all very proud of her in P4b. Great effort from Andrew too, who came in 20th place. Fantastic effort from both of you!
For the final part of p4, reading will be set up in a slightly different way. This morning, everyone enjoyed the opportunity to choose which reading book they wanted from a selection in the classroom. Once everyone had made their choice, pupils got themselves into their new groups and had to set themselves their reading homework for the week. I was very impressed with everyone’s communication and enthusiasm today. There were lots of ideas for additional reading homework tasks too! Keep up the positive attitudes guys.
