Our amazing blog of recent events

Hello again! This is our newest article.

On the 6th of February we went to The Risk Factory to explore how to react in common everyday situations with a high level of risk. We had railway, street, fire, water, building etc. safety lessons. Upon our return, we gave Preston street P7 a preview tour around the art gallery ahead of the big opening on the 8th.

On the 8th of February we had the Art Gallery in our school. There was a cafe where we sold cookies, cupcakes, tea and coffee. We, P7, were the tour guides. Our VIP guests had received a personalised invitation and were taken on a tour by us. We hope all our guests and parents enjoyed it.

On the 21st of February, we had a science play in the hall. The actors showed us the human body works: the digestion, the heart and practically how the ENTIRE body works.

Hello! This is the P7 report team! We are going to bring you the updates and news from Primary 7!

Holyrood Palace

On the 27th of January, P7 had an exclusive tour of Holyrood Palace. Our tour guide told us fascinating facts about the palace and especially the dining room. We were given the task of finding the fake door. People said it was a quick exit! We went to the throne room and saw thrones and talked about the emblems. Did you know they had embroidered screens in front of the fireplace, because women and men used to wear wax-based makeup. If they sat too close to the fire, their face would melt!

Tobacco Education

Laura, a tobacco educator, taught us about tobacco and the dangers of it. We first did an activity to disagree or agree with the statement. We learned that tobacco is a drug, that we can’t buy cigarettes under the age of 18, we also learned that smoking harms more than just the smoker. This is called second hand smoke.

Second hand smoke can stay on pillows, curtains and clothes or fabric for up to 3 weeks. It is important to respect smokers’ choices to smoke and to be polite when asking people to not smoke indoors.

 

Remembrance in P7

As part of our topic on World Wars and in preparation for Remembrance Sunday, Primary 7 went across to Canongate Kirk this morning. Many families had commemorated the soldiers who did not return on their family gravestone, where P7 laid wreaths.  The story of WWI was retold to them through innovative story telling, which held them spellbound. In the pews, there are fibre glass silhouettes of those members of the congregation who lost their lives and a small article explaining who they were.
