Primary 7 do Andy Goldsworthy

Primary 7 took inspiration from British artist Andy Goldsworthy to create art in nature today.

Andy Goldsworthy uses natural materials such as leaves, flower petals, twigs, stones and water to create fleeting pieces of art.

P7 foraged for items and produced visually stunning artwork. We left them in the Figgate Park for the community to enjoy. Great effort P7!

Karate Kids

P7 were put through their paces this week by Chris Ewing, owner of Chris Ewing Karate. A 25 minute intense session of attacking, defending and reaction speed. A great way to kick off (!) the morning.

An Italian Feast

Every Wednesday, P7A are taught Italian Cultural Studies by visiting Edinburgh University student Miss Cohen. This week our focus was food and we certainly celebrated it in style!

P7A were treated to a selection of antipasti, breads, cheese, caprese salad, lasagna, panettone and tiramisu. The pupils enjoyed an amazing culinary experience. Special thanks to Francesco and Rocco’s mum for their delicious contribution to our feast. Grazie mille!

The Great St John’s Bake Off 2019

Primary 6 spent a lovely afternoon baking spider web biscuits for Halloween. The children worked well together to measure and weigh ingredients, kneed and roll dough and decorate with black and white icing. We were rather impressed with our efforts! Watch out Channel 4. Junior Bake Off, here we come!
