It has been a fabulous star-studded week in P7 with all pupils performing five spectacular shows of this year’s side-splitting musical, `Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits’. It has been a wonderful experience for everyone involved and we would like to thank all the people who have helped us. Special thanks to Mr Walker our janitor, Mrs Broadley our music specialist and to Mr Connell our art specialist for all their hard work and contribution.
NBHS have issued a transition schedule for P7 starting High School in August 2017
This term we have been learning about the Scottish parliament and the democratic election process. We have learned about the workings of the Scottish parliament and following a visit from Iain Gray, we also learned about the day-to-day duties of an MSP.
In recent weeks we have formed ‘families’ in our local community and we have investigated the social issues and community concerns within East Lothian. Five MSP candidates were selected to form an election campaign. The candidates canvased the `families’ to find out their needs which formed the basis for their election campaign speeches. Yesterday the P7 MSP candidates gave their speeches and the rest of the year stage voted for the candidate who promised to address the particular needs of their ‘families’. The winning candidate was Keira who represented the `Blue Thistles’ party.

Law Primary entered two P7 teams into the East Lothian schools’ basketball tournament held on Tuesday 3rd March at Meadowmill. Both teams did extremely well and won both their groups. In the play-offs for 1st and 2nd place Gullane and Law 2 emerged as the overall winners and now go on to represent East Lothian in the Lothian Schools’ final.
The standard of basketball throughout the tournament was very high and there was a great atmosphere. Well done to all the teams who took part and thank you to Gordon MacKenzie for organising a successful tournament.
Law 1 – Anakin, Angus, Anna, Amelia, Fergus, Nikita, Pippa, Rebecca, Stuart, Tom
Law 2 – Alyth, Cameron, Felix, Finlay, Isaac, Jennifer, Jess, Michael, Murray, Rosie
I’ve uploaded a powerpoint from the TES website by Mike Ennington that will give you some ideas for Tudor Costumes for the musical.

The P7s will be heading off to the High School on Thursday at 6.30pm for the Transition Ceilidh. All the cluster schools’ P7s will be there for some social dancing and a chance to meet people from other schools. Last year’s event was great fun and we are looking forward to it! We don’t usually get to meet up with the other schools very much so it will be a good opportunity to make some new friends.

On Thursday 28th November the P7s had their first ever Christmas Transition ceilidh. It was really fun and there were loads of people there. First we danced to the Gay Gordons, then one in threes called the Britannia Two-step. Half way through we got crisps and juice or water and sat in tables of eight with pupils from other schools like Athelstaneford, Dirleton, Aberlady and Gullane. Mrs Rodger the High School head teacher was there as well as Mr Jeffries, Mrs Neri and the band called Clappy Doo.
