From Primary 1 to Primary 7 including ESB 1 and 2, I think it is safe to say that the Edinburgh Science Festival was a huge hit! Take a look at all of the exciting, engaging and extraordinary activities!

P5 News and Home Learning w/b 27th March
It was lovely to see and share the learning and achievements of Primary 5 with parents last week. It was also a sad week in Primary 5 as Mr Humphreys finished his Placement with us and returned to University on Monday 27th March. The class and staff wish him all the best and thank him for his fabulous contribution to Primary 5 that he made in his time with us.
Swimming took place on Monday 27th March and we will have another session on Monday 17th April the day we return from our Easter Break. I will let you know if there are any further sessions after this but the class have demonstrated an improvement in their skills and are progressing well in the water.
This week is a busy week and we will be visiting the Science Festival at the City Art Centre Tuesday 28th March where we will be taking part in three active workshops. On Friday we will taking part in our Houses in the Parent Council’s Easter Egg Hunt. Friday 31st March will also see us start our April Holidays and I would like to wish every one in class a Happy Easter and a Happy Ramadan.
This week I will not be issuing Home Learning as we have a busy Friday of activities that will not allow us to do self correction and discussion. After the holidays Home Learning will consist of maths, reading comprehension and spelling. Spelling will be the patterns that the groups are learning during the week and the Home Learning will be a challenge that the class are familiar with. Once again thank you for all your support in making Home Learning a shared experience.
P5 News and Home Learning w/b 20th March.
We had been very busy in P5 last week celebrating and undertaking experiments in class for Science Week. On Monday we looked at the Phases of the Moon, Tuesday we started to conduct our Mouldy Bread Experiment which we used to write instructions for and to predict what we thought would happen when using hard and liquid soaps to sanitise our hands before touching the bread. We will be returning to look at the results this week. We also investigated the connection between flowers and water by dying the water different colours and we have watched over the week the carnations slowly change colours. On Monday we had launch assembly for Science Week with Generation Science all about the body, heart, lungs, digestion, blood circulation and whole host of other areas of the body that help us function. In PE P5 have been learning Badminton skills with Mr Madine and Mr Humphreys.
This week we have swimming on Monday at Abbeyhill, please remember swimming hat, costume and towel and Ukulele with Malcolm on Monday morning. This will Mr Humphrey’s last week with us so we plan to pack lots of outdoor work and art into the week.
I have attached below a copy of the home learning for week beginning 20th March which will be sent home on Monday to be returned on Friday for self correction and discussion.
Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel!
Starting from Monday 20th until Friday 31st, Royal Mile Primary School will be participating in the Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel competition. This is a UK wide initiative to help all of us keep active and fit by walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling to school so that we reduce car journeys, improve air quality and help the environment. Research shows that the more active we are, the more alert and energised we will be – ready for our learning.
We hope all the children can work together to help the school win some fantastic prizes. Thank you in advance to all the parents who will be supporting us.
More information can be found on the Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel website where you can also see a full list of the prizes.
Let’s all get ready for some active journeys to school next week!
