P3/4 and P1B had a fun spelling session in the playground this afternoon. They worked together with their learning buddies to look, count, cover, write and then check their spelling words and some tricky common words. Everyone had lots of fun using the giant coloured chalks to write their words all over the playground as ‘rainbow words’. Next week we are all looking forward to some mindful meditative colouring in…and RELAX!

P3/4 enjoyed learning about soap sculpture this morning with Hannah, an artist and sculptor from East Lothian Arts Service. As an introduction, Hannah explained the origins of soap and how it is made around the world using many different materials. Everyone then spent some time drawing five possible designs on paper before discussing and then choosing the most suitable one for their own sculpture with Hannah. They then began experimenting with some simple tools to create their very own unique soap sculptures!
