How do polar animals stay warm in icy water?

P1 were investigating the answer to this question today.  We tried putting our hands in icy water but it didn’t feel comfortable.  Then we tried with a woolly glove but it got wet and uncomfortable too.  Finally we tried covering out hands with fat.  It was slightly warmer! The fat on our hands was like the blubber on the animals and it stopped them feeling wet and cold.

Santa visits P1

P1 were lucky enough to have a visit from Santa after their party.  He had come all the way from the North Pole and was going to visit Tranent next.  It was so lovely to meet you Santa, and thank you so much for the lovely books for the children.

We need foster carers now


We urgently need new foster carers in East Lothian. Fostering with East Lothian Council means great support, great training and a good financial package. More importantly, as part of our fostering team, you’ll be doing something fantastic, helping children and young people from East Lothian to stay in East Lothian, close to the people that are important to them – helping them to feel safe, loved and nurtured in your home.  Do this for East Lothian children in need. Foster East Lothian!

To find out more phone us on 01620 827 643 or visit East Lothian Council’s fostering web site at www.eastlothian.gov.uk/fostering
