Well done to all the children involved!

Wednesday 8th February 2017
We would like pupils to come to school on this day dressed as the job they would like in the future.
Classes will be taking part in a range of activities to develop children’s awareness of skills for learning, life and work.
A group of pupils have come up with a list of DIY outfits to wear on Wannabe Wednesday! They hope it is helpful for any child unsure of what to wear…
Wear a white shirt, black trousers and an apron. Search ‘DIY chef hat’ online and you will find templates and ideas.
Wear a t-shirt with a large white shirt over the top (leave this open to look like a lab coat). Optional if you have them: rubber gloves, goggles, clipboard.
Sportsman / Sportswoman / Coach
Wear your team’s kit (Dunbar Colts, Dunbar Hockey etc) or wear clothes you would wear for physical activity, e.g. shorts, t-shirt, joggers.
White or blue shirt with black school trousers. Create your own badge from cardboard and use a safety pin to attach it (you can find lots of police badge templates online).
Entrepreneur / Teacher / Lawyer
Make a badge to show who you work for and attach it with a safety pin. Wear a shirt and tie / school trousers / blouse / suit jacket. Optional if you have it: briefcase.
Old t-shirt / shirt splashed with paint. Carry a paintbrush around!
Ask your family for different items of clothing and layer them all to make a unique look!
We look forward to seeing a variety of outfits on the day!

Our lovely French Assistant who worked with Primary One last year, Cylia Toumache, is back visiting Dunbar. She kindly offered to come into school and read French stories to the Primary 1 children this week. We wish her well as she continues her world travels and she has promised she will visit again. There are some lovely French language books for the children to borrow in the John Muir library.

A fantastic Article in The Daily Record Last Friday about Cristina Palmer who is a 10 year old P6 pupil at Dunbar Primary School. Cristina was competing at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow last Friday and by all accounts had a great day.
Cristina has been riding Motorbikes since she was two years old and is regarded as one of the best riders for her age in the UK. Well done Cristina.
