This morning Clare Downes visited Primary 1 to tell the class about her work as an optician. She talked about how our eyes grow and change and she gave the children advice on how to look after them. The children learned about different types of food which help to keep our eyes healthy and they enjoyed tasting some of them! Then Clare visited our own “Aberlady Optician” and played some colour vision games with the boys and girls. Many thanks to Clare and her very responsible assistant for helping us with our learning.
This afternoon Primary 1 were very busy being scientists at a Generation Science workshop called “Ready, Teddy, Go!” The children learned lots about forces and carried out experiments involving pushing, pulling, gravity, floating and sinking. They were able to predict what might happen and then test their ideas to find out if they were correct. Many thanks to our science experts, Jo and Aleysha, not forgetting Isaac and Newton who helped to make the workshop full of fun!
Primary 1 have been learning Scots this week! They prepared and dramatised a Scots version of “What the Ladybird Heard” by Julia Donaldson and performed it at the whole school Scottish assembly this morning. The audience were able to follow the plot of the story and answer questions at the end about Scots words that they had learned. Everyone agreed it was “braw” fun!
P2/3 did a fabulous job this morning performing their poems ‘The Circus’ and ‘Sair Teeth’ to the school at our Scottish Week assembly. Everyone had worked hard to learn their words and worked together to perform as a group.
Well done P2/3
On Tuesday P5 baked oat scones. We were in 4 groups. We used self raising and plain flour. Here is an image of our scones. It was very nice.

This week was Scottish week. We have been doing several different activities in our classes Baking, Poetry, Art, Leaflets, etc. Specifically, Primary 7 have been reciting a poem Tam O’ Shanter written by Robert Burns. We have been creating pieces of artwork that is related to our parts we have been given. We have also performed it in front of the school on the 3rd of February 2017. We all got given parts to say and to create artwork. We have enjoyed this week.
