Autumn Fair

Our nursery children enjoyed making treasure boxes in preparation for our school Autumn Fair. They made posters to tell everyone where and when it was happening and then many came along to join in all the fun of the fair on Saturday. What great fun everyone had!

P.1/2 visit Luffness Mains Farm

Primary 1/2 visited Luffness Mains Farm this afternoon as part of our topic on “Where We Live”. We found out lots of information about the farm and how the crops are grown for us to eat. It was amazing to see the machines sorting the potatoes and we enjoyed tasting the parsnips and carrots in the fields! Many thanks to Geert, the farm manager, for giving us such an interesting tour of the farm. Luffness Mains Farm on PhotoPeach

P2/3 and P3/4 climb Traprain Law

P2/3 and P3/4 are learning about the East Lothian Landscape this term and what better way to start our topic than by seeing the landscape from the top of a hill. So we set off this morning, feeling glad the weather had improved from yesterday and looking forward to our climb. We began by driving along the coast to Tantallon, then back past East Linton to Traprain. On the way the children were looking out for as many features as they could see in the landscape and recording these as we went.
The Outdoor Education staff and Countryside Rangers were waiting for us at Traprain and we split into three groups to climb – meeting up at the summit to eat our snacks and look at Ordnance Survey maps of the area. We could see all over East Lothian – to Edinburgh in the west (just – through the mist) Berwick Law and East Linton in the north, and the Lammermuir hills in the south. Unfortunately Dunbar to the east and Fife to the north were out of sight through the mist.
As you can see in the photos everyone did really well and had a great time. Even the teachers made it to the top!
Thank you to everyone who came with us to help.
