Primary classes 1,2 and 3 all looked and sounded wonderful when they presented their Nativity the Grumpy Sheep to audiences today in Macmerry Primary School. Well done to everyone involved.
A huge thank you to everyone for taking part in Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day. We raised £124 which, as part of the registered scheme, will be matched by the government. Many thanks for your generosity and kindness to other children at this time of year. And we all looked fabulous and were nice and warm on a snowy day!
P2 did a great piece of writing today imagining what we would do if Santa got stuck in our chimney on Christmas Eve . Belle decided that she would do a handstand to push Santa back up with her legs, Amelia thought that she would help him by delivering the rest of the presents and Daniel thought he would try to use his pets to help pull him out!
So don’t worry Santa…if you are reading this then feel free to have an extra mince pie on your way to our houses, we have some great ideas of how to save you if you do get stuck coming down our chimneys!
In P1 we have been opening a special parcel everyday for advent. All the children will have a turn of choosing a parcel and unwrapping the book to share with the class. The children have been very excited about opening the parcels to find some new and some familiar stories. This activity is also a great boost to our Ross Rocks Reading time.
We are collecting for East Lothian Food Bank this week. Any Christmas donations such as pasta, couscous, rice, tins of fish, meat, fruit and veg (must be tinned) would be much appreciated. P5/6 will come round the classes to collect any donations. We hope to make a delivery to the church next week. Many thanks.
Just to let you know all the pupils received their flu vaccine today and were all very brave about it. Well done P1, no fuss.
