Primary 5 went on an interesting trip to Arthur’s Seat this week. The rangers at Holyrood Park taught us about the geology of the area and helped us add to the knowledge we had gained at school.
The rangers transported us millions of years into the past where we imagined a very different world. Among the highlights were a volcanic model, a massive boulder deposited in the Park by a glacier in the ice age and sedimentary rocks proving that the area was once near the equator and a tropical beach.
Yesterday we started learning ukulele with Jules
and Nora. We learned a couple of chords and even manage to strum along with a couple of tunes.
Congratulation to Ignacy on winning a gold medal at a recent diving competition.
Ms Waters and Mrs Gibb would like to say thank you and well done to all the class members who put themselves forward for the roles of class Pupil Council Rep and Eco Rep. We had loads of volunteers who came prepared with great speeches about why they would be good for the job. After delivering the speeches, we voted and we must congratulate the following people. Caitlin is our new Pupil Council Rep and Amy is our Eco Rep. We wish them all the best with their new roles. They will of course be enthusiastically supported by everyone else in the class.
