Hopscotch Theatre Company came to Ednam on Thursday afternoon to perform Loyal Wallace, Royal Bruce. The four actors performed in the village hall for the whole school.  They cover a lot of detail from the period and as well acting, they sing songs and dance.  This is all done with a lot of humour and was much enjoyed by the children.

Meg from Shell Education Service was in school on Wednesday and she was working with all classes in school.

 

The Primary 1-3 class chose a science project on Toys and the Primary 6/7 class chose an activity on Flight.  The Primary 4/5 class were involved in an activity called Band Rollers.

 

The Primary 4/5 group had to make rollers or wheels and test various features of the wheels like size of wheel, size of wood used and so on, to see how thiese might affect performance.

 

See how they got on......Laughing

Following our school inspection, in May, by Her Majesty's Inspectors of Education, the report of their findings has been published and circulated to all our parents. We are very pleased that the report highlights the many positive things that go on in our school and confirms for us the areas for continuing development and improvement.

We were particularly delighted that Mr Pike's (P4/5 teacher) ongoing development of our website and blog pages has been put forward as an area of good practice in using Information and Communications Technology to extend pupils' learning and to involve parents in their children's learning.

 

You can download a copy of the report here.
