Today everyone who has managed to run 8/9 laps of the playground consistently took park in our first official individually timed 1 mile run. Our fastest finisher today was Huw, with an impressive time of 8mins 38secs. He was closely followed by Oli and Alistair. However, there were a huge number of children who worked really had to pace themselves and complete the course in a super speedy time. Well done everyone! What a fantastic effort.

This term we have been having so much fun in the playground with our open ended resources. We have been building a huge ball track. We experimented to see how changing where we put the pipes changed the speed of the balls.
A brand new JUNIOR PARKRUN is starting this Sunday in Inverleith Park, Edinburgh. It is a timed 2k run around the park specifically for children aged 4-11. Run for speed, run for distance or just ran to have fun!

A huge THANK YOU to Erica and Debbie from Tranent Parish Church, who came along to our Easter Assembly today. We really enjoyed singing with them and acting out the Easter story with them.
Also a massive WELL DONE! to all the boys and girls who took part in the assembly. From messages of thanks, to Easter traditions around the world, and a super song about new baby chicks, the children did really well and everyone was very proud of their performance.
We had a brilliant time this morning searching the playground for Easter Eggs.
