P5 Play Rugby
“On Monday 30th September, 12 Primary 5 pupils represented RHPS in a rugby tournament at Murrayfield Stadium. We all had a brilliant time learning the touch rugby rules and playing against different schools from all over Edinburgh. We hope we can play rugby again in the future.”
P4 In the Wildlife Garden
Primary 4 listened wonderfully to the story of the Green Man. We went to the wildlife garden to gather materials to create what we thought he looked like and we all cooperated fantastically well in doing so. We even found some old tyres that we used as his eyes.
We were joined by a new nursery pupil who we welcomed into our activity and showed him how we all work effectively as a class.
Mrs Megaw was very proud of us all.
Clearing the Growing Area
Primaries 7, 6 and 5b have been working with Mrs Megaw, achieving fantastic results, clearing parts of the growing area, since commencing the new school year. Everyone has been contributing effectively, developing quality team building skills, showing maturity in their decision making and working as responsible members of our school community. Many have discussed their visions for this space and in the future we aim to have a quality area which can be inclusively accessed as a meaningful outdoor learning space.
We also have boxes containing some vegetables, planted in the summer term, being wonderfully cared for by our fantastic parent volunteer Ms Macpherson. We hope to use these in cooking soon!
Learning for sustainability is an integral part of the curriculum as it develops a range of transferable skills allowing pupils to take ownership of their learning, encouraging them to build confidence and promotes a sense of pride in the school community.
