P7 enjoy their creative writing class with the Super Power Agency

Summer Term is definitely the time of the school year for Leith Primary. We have so many exciting learning opportunities happening just now and so many events to look forward to over the coming weeks.

This week, P6 were working with a local artist, Hannah Ayre, as part of their Junior Tour Guide Project focus on Trinity House. P3 have been enjoying singing lessons with the National Youth Choir of Scotland. P5 continue to rehearse for their grand performance in the Queen’s Hall with Snappy Operas. A very busy P7 begin to polish their lines and dance routines for their end of term show, Bugsy Malone, along with editing their short stories for their short story book in collaboration with the Super Power Agency, which will be published for the last week of term. P4 and P7 have also been sitting end of year national assessments in numeracy and literacy, demonstrating the they are successful learners as well as creative, resilient and confident individuals.

Next week is the Leith Primary Diversity Week, our biennial opportunity to celebrate and value all that makes us unique as Leithers. Stand by for a celebration of food, dress, music, art, history and more from a variety of cultures represented within the community of Leith. In addition, each class will have the opportunity to work with Show Racism the Red Card, the UK’s largest anti-racism education charity. On Thursday from 2pm, you are invited to join us on Leith Links for our famous celebration parade. Come and see a riot of colour, flags, music, self-designed t-shirts and drumming to let the local community know that we are proud of our diversity and proud to be Leithers.
