Last week was full of variety. Maths Week blending with Bike Week led to some super learning opportunities – including making healthy drinks on a smoothie bike, researching the first bikes made and using maths to create a unique display poster, sketching a bike and applying knowledge of negative and relational space, online games and best of all, participation in the National Sumdog Maths contest; I’m proud to say that P7 came 79th out of over 7,500 classes that signed up!
IT – Midlothian Council are in the process of migrating our IT systems to Google. In a few months time, we hope that each pupil will get their own device to use ( Chromebook). Children now have an ‘@midlothian.education‘ email address and new log-in details.
We have also successfully migrated into our new Google Classroom and very soon, I’d like to share some photo albums of recent events with you there.
My new email address :
My old ‘@mgfl.net‘ address may work for a short time too.
That’s all for now,
