This week!

It was great fun trying to pull our friends over in Judo

We saw lots of places the dragon might like to go!

Not much use out of our rain gauges this week, maybe these thunderstorms will fill them up.

We really enjoyed our dancing with lots of cool moves!

Everyone had many turns (except me, one turn was plenty!)

Scoring lots of goals

Very important to warm up before running

P6/7’s Health, Eco and Outdoor Learning Week – so far…

Check out what P6/7 have been up to so far this week…

Our P7s have made healthy snacks and created adverts for them while the P6s were cycling to Hopetoun; all the P7s have taken part in a cluster cross country event; our P6s have been excellent buddies to both P1 classes where we created artwork with natural materials and did a scavenger hunt; and our whole class had an athletics taster session with Graeme from Harmeny Athletics Club. What a week!! And we still have a day and a half to go!!

The Big Pedal ‘May the Fourth be With You’

Last Friday, the children at Echline Primary were invited to come into school dressed as their favourite ‘Star Wars’ character to mark the end of the ‘Big Pedal’.

 

Here are some pictures to show what a fantastic end to the two weeks we had!

Well done all!

The big pedal

Hello everyone!

I just want to share the exciting news that we are currently first for the whole of Edinburgh in the ‘Big Pedal’. This is a nationwide competition and we are currently 33rd in the UK and 5th in Scotland!

First of all, well done to everyone who has been traveling to school by bike or scooter.

Secondly, can you please encourage your child (if they can) to come to school by bike or scooter over the next few days? We are so close to winning for the whole of Edinburgh and Scotland which would be an amazing achievement.

Thank you as always for your amazing and continued support.

The past

We’re continuing to explore the past, this week we focused on how technology has changed. The first Gameboy was not even in colour. But changing the game was a bit of a challenge!

Hope you all have a lovely holiday!

STEM WEEK

STEM week proved a great success at Echline Primary!  The P4/5 assembly gave a fantastic introduction into STEM week and all children did so well in explaining it to the whole school.

During STEM week we had some exciting workshops and visitors.  In P4-P5, we had Denise from Napier University who spoke to us about 3D printing and we even got to use the 3D pens to create our own. She also did workshops in P6-7 about coding.

We also had John Renwick from ESP Scotland (also a parent) who kindly came in to show children from P4-7 the immersive reality kit. Which was great fun!

David Wylie from Leonardo airborne safe systems came into P1 to speak to them about helicopters.

There were many more STEM activities that happened around the school  involving building marshmallow towers and hoop gliders.

I’m sure everyone had a fantastic week learning about STEM!
