As part of the Sciennes Winter Fair, Primary 7 are taking part in an enterprise project. Working in teams, the kiddies have come up with ideas for their stalls and are working towards making lots of profit. So far, their plans are coming together and it is great to see how invested they have become in making it a success.
Here is a little preview of what you can expect to find on Saturday…
Guess the Address
For 50p, you can ‘Guess the Address’ of this delicious handmade gingerbread house. The kids will start accepting guesses from tomorrow and will announce the winner on the day.
Adopt a Teddy
Thank you so much for all of your donations; the kids were so delighted with the response. For 50p you can take your chances with the tombola for your chance to adopt one of these beautiful teddies in need of a new home. Some even come with their very own friendship bracelet, handmade by the kids.
Candy Cane Fishing
Roll up! Roll up! For only 50p a go you can come and try your hand at some candy cane fishing. Like Hook a Duck with a difference! Among the little festive ducks are some festive ducks bringing prizes, but which ones?
We’ll be based in Room 13 on the day. We look forward to seeing you all then.
Love, P7C x

Dear P7 Families,
Just a gentle reminder to send in swimming kit for P7 B&C on Monday. P7A are on a trip to the Water of Leith on Monday so will be swimming on Thursday.
The P7 Team
P7 worked in mixed class groups on Thursday afternoon to investigate properties of water. A third of the year group investigated water density by trying to layer the water to create a rainbow in a jar. After a little trial and error the pupils got the hang of it. We thought they looked fab.
Nice work, P7s.
Primary 6 welcomed their primary 3 buddies into the classroom this afternoon, for their last Buddy time. They helped their buddies research different animals and the got to play with them afterwards. Primary 6 have loved having buddies and have learnt a lot from this experience.
As if the excitement of Sports Day wasn’t enough, P6A spent the rest of the day making Spanish tapas. In groups, the pupils selected their recipes, identified the ingredients they would need, made a plan of action for the day, translated their recipes into Spanish, and then today they made their dishes.
Although we had help (thank you SO much to the parents who were able to come in and help out), the pupils did much of the work by themselves. The read the recipes, measured the ingredients, timed the different stages and worked collaboratively. It may look a little chaotic, but isn’t that what all kitchens look like?! 😄
The groups and their finished dishes (which were all guzzled up in record time!)
Well done, niños!
