Disharmony in WWI

Carys and Ella performed their own musical composition to explain the alliances between countries before WWI. They played some harmonious chords with the notes that complemented each other representing the allied states. They then shocked us with some uncomfortable dis-chords, illustrating the conflict between nations whose interests clashed. Thanks girls, for your innovative and informative performance!

Gie me a Haggis!

Thank you so very much to Mr Macsween (a.k.a. Charlie’s dad) for coming in to P7 to share the rather splendid beast, the haggis!

The address was made (thanks Charlie, Daniel and Wenda!) and the haggis was devoured eagerly along with some neeps and tatties.

Interest levels in Mr Macsween’s business at the Q and A was high!There are a few entrepreneurs waiting in the wings to be Scotland’s next big thing for sure.

Percentipede!

As P7a were discussing the origins and meaning of the word ‘percent’ – cents, century, centurion, centimetre, centipede… a wee centipede appeared crawling across the classroom. Thankfully, hawk-eyed Natalia spotted him and performed a rescue operation before releasing the wee beastie into the playground.

Success for Sciennes at the Autumn Games

96 pupils to Liberton High to experience and compete in new sporting activities.

All participated with energy and enthusiasm playing sports that weren’t their usual choice. Working outside their comfort zones in Football, Rugby, Athletics, Tennis, Lacrosse, Volleyball, TKD and Dance, there was laughing, teamwork, friendship making and two trophies! Thank you to Active Schools and Eliot Ambrose for arranging.

Well done to All! And congratulations to Volleyball and Girls’ Rugby for winning your groups!
