The Corn Potato String Band
This amazing band from America are performing, for one night only, in Macmerry as part of a world tour. Robin Hill, our chaplain, has arranged for some of our pupils to perform with the band on stage. Children from P4-P7 are practising at the moment in their music lessons on ukuleles to be ready for the night.
It is hoped that we will have the chance to rehearse with the band on the afternoon of the performance. It is taking place in the school hall on Monday 20th June from 7pm. Tickets are on sale from the school office from today and cost £5 for adults, £2.50 for children. Children from P4-7 who are performing do not pay.
Please note that the Summer Activities online booking will go live at 6pm on Wednesday 25th May on the link below:
Some parents may have heard an article on a local radio station making reference to several schools in East Lothian having received a threat via the telephone. Macmerry Primary has not received any such phone call, only one school in East Lothian was involved. Full details regarding the incident are on the East Lothian Council website.
For the last two weeks P2 and P3 have been taking part in outdoor maths. Here are some photos of the activities we have enjoyed!
Lots of fun in the game duck, duck, decade! This helps us to practice counting in 2s and 5s.
We have been using big chalk to write repeated addition and multiplication sums.
We sorted numbers from smallest to biggest across decades.
We read instructions to make different groups of items and count the total.
Well done P2 and P3 – lots of great learning!
