Kilts for Kids Day – Friday 27th November 2015

Primary 3 have been working hard preparing their St Andrew’s Day Assembly, their performance for this session. They will present it to children in the Nursery am session and Primary 1 and Primary 2 this Thursday morning, the 26th of November.

Children in P4-P7 along with P3 parents and relatives will attend the performance on Friday 27th November.  You may be aware through the media that Children 1st, the main children’s charity in Scotland, encourages people to wear “Kilts for kids” at this time of year and make a small donation to their fundraising campaign.

P3 invite all children to participate in Kilts for Kids day and wear something Scottish or tartan this Friday and make a small donation to the charity. All of the money raised in East Lothian, stays in East Lothian.

We appreciate that this is an expensive time of year and you have had many requests for money lately. Whatever you can do to support P3 in their enterprise to raise money for Children 1st would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

If you have purchased tickets for the Ceilidh on Thursday evening, we look forward to seeing you there.

J Daly and C Sharp (P3 Teachers)

P5C Weekly News

We have a new music teacher who has started at the school and she is very nice and she has an amazing voice too. He name is Mrs Matusazak. We sung two songs with her and then taught her all our names.

During our art lesson on Wednesday we looked at creating a picture starring a miner. We looked at this because we are learning all about Cockenzie’s Industrial Past. We used a mono-print technique which uses ink. This was really messy! After we printed our miner and used charcoal and chalk to shade, we then looked at Prestongrange museum for our background.

This week we also done a craft afternoon. We had to make a Rudolph bag or a snow globe to sell for the Christmas Fayre. When we were finished we got to draw a Christmas picture or make some snowflakes using lollipop sticks.
