Sumdog with p1s

We were we teaching the p1s how to use sumdog this can enhance their maths/digital literacy skills. This also benefits the p7s as they need to mix with people at transitions, it helps the p7s with their confidence and teamwork skills. During this process we helped the p1s log in and out of sumdog also we let them explore sumdogs games, the house and most of all, to use their maths skills. All the p7s hope that helping the p1s with sumdog is a real help for their later career in school and out of school.

Guardian of the bridges sculpture 

This morning I was fortunate enough to have been invited along to attend the opening ceremony of the new guardian which is situated to the east of south queensferry. Nearly 4 years ago, I ran an afterschool art club for upper school children who are now at secondary school. During some of the sessions, we were fortunate enough to be joined by artist Debbie Ryan who did some sculpture lessons with us. The designs that the pupils came up with have now been placed on the sculpture and they look marvellous! As well as the art club involvement, Mrs Miller’s primary seven class at the time were also involved. I just want to take this opportunity to say well done to those pupils (who are now in 2nd and 3rd year of high school). Please share this with anyone who may have been involved, and do take some time to visit the sculpture in the future. I feel immensely proud of Echline pupils for all of their efforts and hard work involved in the project. Here is a picture of the finished sculpture.

Echline Celebrates World Book Day!

We had a very successful World Book Day at Echline organised by the House Captains!  They rang the DEAR bell where everyone had to Drop Everything And Read, organised a Book Swap, a Where’s Wally Hunt and a photo competition.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated books or bought a book for the Book Swap and helped us to raise a brilliant £107.83 for the National Literacy Trust.  Well done again to the photo competition winners – we had some fantastic entries from everyone finding very unusual places to read!  The House Captains had a hard job to judge all the photos.  Finally, well done to the Red House, Inchgarvie, for winning the Where’s Wally hunt!

Here are some photos from yesterday and the winning entries from the photo competition.  Remember to use you World Book Day tokens to get a free £1 book or use it to put £1 towards another book of your choice!
