Last week our “Wise Owls” in P.1/2 planned and prepared class talks for the very first time. After much discussion, the children decided that a successful speaker should sound loud, clear, interesting, confident and enthusiastic! The Little Owls listened well and asked lots of questions about the topics which included Dinosaurs, Tennis, Gala Day and much more. Well done, Wise Owls! Wise Owls Talk! on PhotoPeach
The wet weather didn’t stop our nursery children from having some great adventures outside yesterday morning. They climbed trees, made ‘traps’, searched for minibeasts and made some delicious ‘dishes’ whilst out of doors. They enjoyed hot chocolate under cover during snack time and decided that this was something they would like to do more of! Roll on next week!

P2/3 had a wonderful morning yesterday at Dirleton Castle looking for evidence about what life used to be like in a castle. The sun shone and we all gave the trip a big thumbs up!

This morning P.1/2 continued their “Eco” investigations by becoming detectives. Their mission was to explore the school grounds and look for “nature”. The children set about the task wtih great determination and found lots of wonderful treasures! P1/2 Nature Detectives! on PhotoPeach
So much has been going on so far this week that we thought we would share some more photos from the first two days of Eco week.

The grass is too wet!
Reluctantly (and for yet another year) the Eco Committee advises that our Eco Picnic – scheduled for a 12.15 start – will NOT now take place in the school grounds. We’ll do our best to ensure that our Eco warriors enjoy lunch in the dining room. However, space is limited and this means that parents/younger siblings cannot attend. Our sincere apologies for the family disappointment this may create.
