P3 Easter Bonnet Competition


Well done to the P3 girls who came third in a recent Hobbycraft Edinburgh Easter Bonnet Competition. Many thanks to all our parents and friends who voted for the bonnets when they were on display in the Edinburgh store over the Easter holidays.

The girls won a £25 Hobbycraft Classroom Hamper, and were happy to share their prize with the boys. They have all enjoyed using some of the new resources to create a name plate for their bedroom doors.

Sandcastles on the Beach

Yesterday the nursery children enjoyed a trip in the minibus to Thorntonloch Beach. First they had to each build 10 sandcastles as they had been sponsored by their friends and family to carry out this challenge. With the money raised from this sponsored event, we hope to buy some new toys and other resources for the nursery.

After all that digging, they then enjoyed a healthy snack before heading along the beach in search of interesting items to create transient art pictures.

There was then time for some races along the sand – running races, walking backwards races, running sideways races and running with a partner races. All that running certainly helped to warm them up!

Before we headed back to Nursery, the children enjoyed jumping on their sandcastles to flatten them out and leave the beach just as they had found it! Thank you to all the parents and siblings who joined us. We were so glad the sun shined, and the hailstones from the previous day stayed away!

We will let you know how much we raised once the sponsor money has all been returned.

P1/2/3 Materials Monster

As the final activity for their Materials topic, the P1/2/3 children created an amazing monster this afternoon using a huge variety of different materials collected at home. The children helped to choose the design of the outline and then all helped to add the different materials to the monster. It was a fun activity which involved perseverence, cooperation and creativity.
Well done, P1/2/3!
