Using Bitsboard at home

The digital leaders have made some videos to help you to use Bitsboard at home.  We use it in school regularly.

First how to download Bitsboard from the app store.  Unfortunately it is not available on Android.

First Aid Workshop

On Wednesday 12th June, P6 participated in a First Aid Workshop, which was led by the British Red Cross.

The pupils learned how to put someone in the Recovery Position and what to do it someone is not breathing; including, the use of CPR. Sarah, from the British Red Cross, was fantastic at imparting vital knowledge and skills.

P6 Bikeability Training

This week, P6 pupils have been learning how to cycle safely on the roads, which is an important life skill that enables pupils to participate in sustainable travel and keep healthy at the same time.

My Adventure led the training days, which consisted of training in the playground, then practising the Level 2 Bikeability skills on the road.

Well done to everyone who participated. Keep cycling!

Dr Bike

On Thursday 14th March, Sustrans helped P6 to do an M Check on their bikes. This involved checking our tyre pressure, spokes, saddle stability and height, chain, pedals, handlebars, brakes and frame. (Go to the Sustrans website to see the 11 steps in full.)


This week (11th to 15th March), P6 enjoyed the variety of science, technology, engineering and maths lessons to celebrate STEM Week. It was a lot of fun!

A big thank you to Matt from Veolia who led a very exciting workshop about earning money from recycled waste, and Yvonne from Edinburgh Airport who spoke about her job as an accountant.
