Primary 5 Assembly!

At the beginning of March, Primary 5 produced two stunning class assemblies – one to the whole school and the other to their parents and carers. The theme of the assembly was ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ and we were treated to a history lesson like no other!

  • We started by tuning into ‘This Is Your Life’…
  • We witnessed a royal wedding…
  • King Henry made a grand appearance…
  • Then came Cilla Black as Mary took part in her very own edition of Blind Date…
  • A boat made it’s way from one side of the stage to the other – and back again…
  • John Knox made an appearance via a live video link…
  • It wouldn’t be a Carrick Knowe assembly without a One Direction song getting played…
  • Mary fell out with Queen Elizabeth…
  • Then a pair of executioners beheaded Mary!

It just goes to show you that you can’t beat a Carrick Knowe class assembly!


Green Pencil Competition Launch

On Thursday 3rd September, P5A were selected to help with the launch of the City of Edinburgh ‘Green Pencil Writing Competition’.

The theme for this years competition is ‘Food for Thought’ and focuses on writing about Scottish foods.

During the day, they were involved in a workshop with author Vivien French and the pupils participated enthusiastically in discussion about how they could write about different foods.
