P7 Politics

P7 have been enjoying learning about the Scottish Parliament. We have found out about MSPs, manifestos and elections. We have made up our own political parties, written our own manifestos and election speeches and this afternoon we held a mock election in the class. Here we are giving our speeches and casting our votes.


P7 have been enjoying reading the book ‘Clownfish’ this term with visiting reader, Edel. She has also been kind enough to organise a free-of-charge visit from Alan Durant, the author, for this Thursday. Any P7 wishing to buy their copy of the book at the reduced price of £2 so that they can have Alan sign their book should bring the money to school before Thursday’s reading session.

DYW talk from Dr Renaud

As part of their learning on Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) P7 enjoyed an interesting and informative talk from Dr Jenny Renaud from Aird Medical Practice. The pupils heard about the path Dr Renaud took in order to become a GP and then enjoyed asking her lots of thoughtful questions. We may have a few of the world’s future GPs in our class.

They will need indoor and outdoor trainers, a waterproof jacket, a change of clothes for afterwards, packed lunch, snack and a non-fizzy drink.
