usher Hall Concert

Primary 7 will be taking part in this fabulous event again this year at the Usher Hall. It is always inspiring to see the talented musicians from James Gillespie’s High School.  It is even more amazing to hear the Primary 7 choir made up of young people from all the feeder primaries: James Gillespie’s, Sciennes, Tollcross, Preston Street, Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce and Royal Mile, singing together on stage.

We hope very much all of our young people will be there to represent the school and that you will come  along and enjoy the concert.

Maths Week Challenge for the Holidays!

The whole school took part in the nationwide Maths Week last week. Each class visited a local venue and collected maths facts while they were there!

P7 went to Starbucks (not for a Frappuccino!) and collected data on the habits of consumers, which we converted into pie charts using excel.

So if you fancy a challenge over the October break, see if you can visit all the places in the booklet and evidence your visit in a range of ways. When you’re tired out from all your collecting, counting and calculating and feel like a pit stop to refuel, you can collect data on the habits of shoppers where you stop!  Each visit will earn you a house point on your return!
