As part of the Corn exchange community engagement project, pupils from Saltersgate school have been developing an exciting piece of work in response to the story of the escaped monkeys from the Zoo circus in 1933 in Ironmills Park.
Using newspaper articles as a starting point, the pupils have been creating drawings and images to illustrate the story and have created a short piece of animation.
Primary 7 pupils from across the St David’s ASG joined S1 pupils at the High School to make a unique transition video sharing their ideas about how to make good CHOICES FOR LIFE!
Pupils at Rosewell Nursery and Primary School enjoyed taking part in a Big Bedtime Read as part of Book Week Scotland celebrations on Friday 1st December. Pupils, staff and parents were invited to come to school wearing their pyjamas and listen to stories as part of their work to promote a positive reading culture. Children were also treated to some chocolate milk and cookies kindly prepared by the kitchen staff. The school are currently participating in the First Minister’s Reading Challenge and are exploring different ways to incorporate reading and storytelling into their daily routine. Thanks to Stephen and the staff at Midlothian Libraries who supported the event on Friday and came along to sign families up the library service.
