Clean Air Day

A truly inspiring and amazing event on Thursday as 99 of our fabulous P6s headed down through the Meadows to the Mound to celebrate and raise awareness for Clean Air Day. The Mound and George Street were closed to traffic and P6s met with councillors for the city who were delighted, amazed and fascinated by the children and their fantastic chanting and marching through Edinburgh to promote to importance of active travel and air pollution on the longest day of the year.

P6 have worked incredibly hard toward the end of term learning about pollutants in our air and the importance of lowering pollution levels in Scotland and across the globe.

What a fine example of ‘Year of Young People’ and of the future generations leading such important activism.

Leading the Learning

We have been extremely lucky this past week to have members of the class leading one another with their own lessons. From sign language to drama with the history of Lego thrown in as well. It has been fantastic to see the children so engaged in planning and carrying out lessons and the enthusiasm of those being taught. Looking forward to the final lessons to come in our final week of P6C!

Seconds From Disaster

P6C enjoyed a wonderful week of trips starting off at the Museum to learn about the 1995 and 97 Volcanic eruptions on Monserrat. The children were given roles as Government, Scientists and members of the public and used their knowledge and evidence provided to work out the best solution for when a natural disaster occurs!IMG_0530IMG_0532IMG_0539IMG_0542IMG_0543IMG_0547IMG_0551IMG_0552IMG_0554IMG_0556

P6 Games @ The Hub

  1. 30 Primary 6 pupils took to the field/court/pitch yesterday for Games @ The Hub! Primary schools from across the city took part in a variety of sports. Sciennes had teams in Cricket, Rugby and Volleyball. All who attended were a fabulous credit to the school: polite, gracious in defeat and victory and with fantastic positive attitudes supporting one another throughout. Special congratulations to the Cricket team who came through 60 runs to 57 against James Gillespie’s Primary in the final, retaining the Cricket shield won last year by the current P7 year group!

Special thanks go to Hannah K’s and David’s mum who were coaching the Volleyball and Rugby teams!

Active Travel

Delighted to see P6C with 90% of the class actively traveling to school each day! We are now a Gold Living Streets Class! Moreover, we’re the most active class in the school! Keep up the good work!

Machlan Boxing Champion!

A huge congratulations to Machlan Arthur on becoming Scottish boxing champion last weekend. An incredible achievement and one we’re all proud of in P6C. Maybe a few question marks about the pose !

World Book Day

P6C celebrated a belated world book day after the Beast from the East interrupted last week! Fantastic costumes and It’s clear to see that characters from Rick Riordan’s series of novels are most popular! Only one Roald Dahl Character this year…!Also attached the “waiting patiently” face of Mr H as these book characters organise themselves into a photo worthy pose!

Outdoor maths!

P6C took advantage of a lovely sunny February afternoon by taking their maths outside. Using metre sticks and rulers the class worked in groups to find out the different lengths, widths and area size of their playground!
