P7 Enterprise

We can’t believe it’s nearly been 2 weeks since the hardworking P7s sold their brilliant products at the Christmas Fair! Well done to you all for a successful afternoon and thanks to our customers as well as parents who helped us along the way!

Book Week in P6/7

This week has been Book Week in Echline.  We have done a book treasure hunt, a book personality quiz, a book blurb quiz and a book knowledge quiz!  There has been a DEAR bell which means Drop Everything And Read and everybody has to take a book everywhere with them and when a fancy bell goes you have to stop what you are doing and read.

On Monday, a visitor came in and she was a bookshop owner from Linlithgow and her name was Sally.  She has won awards for her bookshop.  She has every single book about Scotland and by Scottish authors in her shop!  She also has a secret weapon – a bunny called BB.  Also, some of the P7s in both classes got to read a French story with a Sixth Year called Katie.

There has been a writing competition for the whole school.  For P1-3 they had to design a poster and P4-7 have had to write a story with a maximum of 300 words with the title, “A world where nobody reads…”.  It is optional and a few people from our class have already entered.

We got our Reading Passports this week and every time we read a book, we write comments about it and rate it.  If you don’t read very much it’s to encourage you to read more.  Miss Dickson is giving us stickers every time we finish a book for the last page in the book.

We have also made our own books with Mrs McLoughlin!  We learned how to do book binding and we also did marbling for the front cover.

Some of our favourite things have been the treasure hunt and the book knowledge quiz.  Tomorrow we are looking forward to our author visit too.  This has been the best Book Week we have had!

P6 and 7 Show

On Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd November, all of the Primary 6s and Primary 7s performed their Show ‘Come Fly With Me’. The audiences were huge and everyone loved the Show. It was a fantastic experience that we will never forget!
