This morning, P5/6 planted daffodil bulbs with Mrs Thomson. We will be selling the the pots of daffodils during the spring to raise money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.
The boys and girls in P.1/2 are having great fun learning French! Every Tuesday Mathieu Fadel, a French assistant from Caen in Normandy, and Madame Swan, our French specialist, support us in our learning and give us lots of activities to practice throughout the week. Merci beaucoup Mathieu et Madame Swan!Bonjour P.1/2! on PhotoPeach
P5/6 had a wonderful visit to the John Gray Centre in Haddington this morning to learn more about World War I. We travelled back in time to hear from ‘Flo’, who worked at East Fortune Aerodrome from 1914.
Flo was very strict and insisted that we march everywhere, including down Haddington High Street and back to our bus. We learned lots of interesting facts, made our own propaganda posters and took part in a planning exercise to station troops around East Lothian.
We also looked at the display of work done by Aberlady P6/7 during their World War I project. Well done, everyone.
Thank you to everyone who joined our conga around the school…. in the rain…… this morning. The wet weather didn’t dampen our spirits and we raised lots of money for a very good cause.
Thank you too, to L. who undertook on a sponsored silence for one hour and raised £20.00 Phew!!
Thank you to everyone who entered our Remembrance Day poster competition and donated to the Poppy Scotland Appeal – Ayla, Niamh, Daisy, Jasmine, Leah, Stephanie, James, Edith, Esther, Martha, Charlie, Anna, Alexander, Clara, Owen and Angus.
Special congratulations to Amy and Jacob, who designed the winning posters. A very special entry was designed by Aaron, James’s little brother, who is only 2 years old!
