John Muir Reward

P4-7 have started work towards their John Muir Reward. We have found out about John Muir – What excited him, worried him, what he stood for. Many of our questions got answered at John Muir’s Birth Place.
We discovered our wild place behind the school, Peffer Burn. We used all our senses, looked through our legs like John Muir, and saw many things we liked. Unfortunately we also noticed lots of dog mess and litter. Monday the 8th we will explore the burn with the ranger. Exciting!

Food Bank East Lothian

The Fundraising Group organised a food collection for Food Bank East Lothian. Peter Dicker visited our school and explained to all children how the food bank helps people who really need it. We were warmly welcomed when we dropped off ¬†81 kilo’s of food.

Thank you very much for all your donations.

World of Work Week – Workers Wanted!

We are holding a World of Work Week starting on Monday 6th February. Our aim is to raise awareness of the jobs people do and of the qualities needed to do those jobs. We are looking for parents or other members of the community to tell us about their working life. We are especially looking for people who work in a science, technology, maths or engineering field. If you are able to come in, answer a few questions and inspire some young minds please call Mrs Cameron on 01620 880241. Thank you!

 

Seabird Centre Visitors in P1-3

Thank you very much to Grace and Andrew from the Scottish Seabird Centre for their interesting visit last Thursday. We were very excited to learn about some of the amazing creatures that live in the seas around Scotland. We also heard about the planned new Marine Centre, where we will maybe be learning more about these fascinating creatures in the future! We enjoyed being hands-on as we learned about food chains with masks, games and objects to touch. Thank you to J for persuading his Aunty Grace to come along!

The drama club gave their performance for family and friends on Thursday. After weeks of preparation around 40 pupils took part in¬†¬†a wonderfully entertaining show all about¬†finding a new¬†Santa. There were a range of contenders fighting it out on¬†‘The S Factor’. All ended well with only Santa being able to do the job!! Phew!
