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.

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!

P2, P2/3 & P3 Show

This week we have started rehearsals for our P2, P2/3 and P3 show ‘The Bee Musical’. Children have been given highlighted scripts and song words to practise at home. Please could you encourage your children to rehearse as much as possible. Unfortunately, due to copyright laws, we cannot provide children with the music for songs but they will get plenty of chance to practise these in school. Further information about costumes and tickets will be sent out over the next few weeks.

Burns Supper Taster

On the last Thursday before the February break, P2, P2/3 and P3 got together to celebrate all the things we’ve learned about Scotland so far.

We got to watch some Highland dancing.

Miss Young read out the Address to a Haggis, lots of people tried meat haggis and vegetarian haggis for the first time!

The haggis was served with some yummy peppery oatcakes made by P2.

Whilst P2/3 made some delicious shortbread for us to snack on.

And P3 celebrated Pancake Day early and made some fluffy pancakes for us to enjoy.

We even listened to traditional bagpipe music and showed off our ceilidh dancing skills! Sadly Miss Bennett’s camera ran out of battery at this point but the dancing continued for a while!

We all had great fun 🙂
