Dear Primary 7

Dear Primary 7,

I hope that you have enjoyed your taste of high school this week. It has been so lovely to see your photos and I hope that you enjoyed the activities as well. I had quite a lot of fun making the examples if I’m honest!

Next week, as you know, is the last week of term. I will be posting a grid for you, which apart from My World of Work, contains activities. I will be available online as usual if you are struggling with anything or would like to share what you have been doing.

In other news, this week I’m afraid I haven’t baked anything but that is because I have been planning props for a themed party. It’s my brother’s birthday at the weekend and we are planning a themed Harry Potter outdoor socially distanced party. There is really nothing I love better than a themed party! (You may have noticed my reference to this in my photo on Wednesday with the birthday bunting). Now I think about it, I’m pretty sure my brother had a Harry Potter themed birthday when he was 7 or 8 and now he’s having one when he’s turning 27!

In the photos you can see: Quidditch hoops for themed ping pong, Ferrero Roche snitches, treasure hunt clues, Mad Eyed Moody’s eye (no idea how my mum made that!) and Honeydukes sweet shop. I did make some homemade lemonade or Polyjuice potion as well. (My sister made the Honeydukes sweets and my fiancé made the Quidditch hoops, so I can’t take all the credit!). The recipe for the lemonade is below if you’d like to try it.

As always, if you have any questions or anything to share, please do email it to:

me directly, share it on TEAMS or admin@royalmile.edin.sch.uk

Have a lovely weekend Primary 7.

Take care,

Miss Kerr

Homemade Lemonade

You will need:

300g caster sugar

2 lemons-sliced

1 orange sliced

1 punnet of raspberries or strawberries

Ice and/or mint to serve

Method:

Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan and pour over 350ml cold water.

Bring to the boil, stirring often, then leave to cool.

Pour through a sieve, pressing down with a spoon to extract all the juices.

The syrup can now be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week.

To serve, pour a little into a glass and top up with sparkling or still water, ice and mint. Add the raspberries or strawberries to make it pink lemonade!

(Personally, I would add more lemons, but I like things with quite a sharp flavour. Hope you enjoy it!)

 

Journey to High School

Copper went to James Gillespie’s High School this week! He had a few detours along the way but we got there in the end!

How will you get to High School? What time will you need to leave in the morning? Have a look on google maps and plan your route! Maybe you want to take a walk to see what your route will be (but remember to do this at a safe distance from others or in your household).

Attached below is the entry form for the Building Resilience competition. These can be emailed to school in the usual way or dropped in when you bring your goodbye message (details on when that will be to follow).
