Royal Mile continues to work in partnership with the Fruitmarket Art Gallery and Garcia Foundation. Last week, the Fruitmarket welcomed a group of P5, 6 and 7 pupils to a workshop to help design their new Gallery space. They are currently renovating this and operated the workshop from a space within Waverley Mall. We had the opportunity to use various craft materials to help us with our designs. We then used ICT to create short animations to bring our ideas to life. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The Fruitmarket will be running free drop-in Sunday workshops in this space over the coming weeks. Pupils are more than welcome to attend. Information below:
To support our writing this week, P5 and P6 took a walk through the Princes Street Gardens Christmas markets on Monday afternoon.
We have been working on developing a setting description. We are aiming to include ambitious vocabulary and senses into our writing so we paid specific attention to what we could see, hear, taste, smell and feel while we were there.
The P5 Junior Road Safety Officers enjoyed leading a competition to create a new road safety superhero. After spending lots of time looking through the fantastic entries, Kaiden P4 has been chosen as the winner. Congratulations Kaiden! Enjoy spending your book vouchers! Here are some of the amazing entries:
Please find the attached information sheet about Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood education programme primary six will be starting shortly.
We will start by looking at friendship to tie in with Anti-Bullying week. In this block of activities, children will explore friendship and will be encouraged to think about
what they would want from a friend and what kind of friend they can be. The children will explore the positive impact of friendship, as well as some of the challenges that come up in managing relationships. Children can worry about friendships, and there can be fall-outs and arguments between the children. We want to create a class where there is a positive atmosphere and where children get on. We want children to be able to manage the ups and downs of friendships. We will be helping children understand that they do not need to be best friends with everyone, but they can be friendly and kind. As many of the children will be online and may be interacting with people
online we will also look at why and how an online friendship may be different from a friend you know and meet at school or out playing. If you have any concerns about your child’s relationships and friendships, please do talk with us at school.
The full programme can be found online at http://www.rhsp.scot/second-level.
For maths week all of the classes in the school created a maths fact file about a location on or around the Royal Mile. It would be great if as many people as possible could visit the areas in the fact file. House points will be awarded to those who can visit all of the locations and bring pictures of them visiting on the first day back after holidays.
Thank you to all of those who came along to parents consultations and also to the outdoor maths event during maths week.
