P7 went to the library to learn how to search the catalogue and find reference books. This will support us as we start our homework research project; we will be finding out more about an area (e.g. state or province) or a major city in North America. Most of the children now have library cards, but if for whatever reason your child was unable to do so, please let me know, as I have spare registration forms.
Today we had our first rehearsal at James Gillespie’s High School for the Christmas concert. We will be taking part in a performance of Africa by Toto and Jingle Bell Rock with other P7s from our cluster at the Usher Hall on 19th December. Please do help your child practise these songs at home.
On Monday 30th October some of our P7s went with some of the P6s to Meadowbank for the city wide Sportshall Athletics competition. This was the culmination of several weeks training and selection, and the children should all be very proud of their achievements. Both behaviour and sportsmanship were excellent and everyone taking part tried their best.
