Primary 1 self portraits on PhotoPeach
Last week everyone in Primary 1 painted a picture of themself in their school uniform. We had lots of fun painting the pictures and had to think carefully about which colours to use.
When the paintings were dry Miss Jack cut them out and put them on our classroom wall. They look fantastic!
P2 have been learning how to program Beebot to move in different directions!
We can make Beebot go forwards, backwards and left to right.
P2 love to use Beebot!
Having Fun at Nursery! on PhotoPeach
Welcome back to our pre-schoolers and to all the new children who have just started at our nursery. We have settled well and having lots of fun!
Primary 1 have been thinking about how they can make sure everyone feels happy and safe at school.
So far we have thought of 4 ways to make everyone feel happy and safe.
In P1 we share, keep trying, remember to use our manners and are kind to others.
These are our class rules.
The leaves on this beautiful flower remind us of our rules.
We have all made an excellent start to following the rules.
It’s lovely to welcome back all of our pupils at the start of our new school year and to hear all of the stories of what they’ve been up to over the holidays.
For last year’s nursery children, it’s been the first few days in their new school uniforms.
Check out these photographs of how grown up they look!

We’ll be taking to the railway path on Friday morning when the P3 – P7s will be running in our 2km and 3km summer races.
We’re looking for marshalls and supporters so please come to cheer the children on, anywhere along the route from the Howden Bridge to the end of Hillview Road.
The run will start at 9:30am, from George Crescent, with the 3k runners going up and over the bridge and the 2km runners taking a right onto the old railway at the Howden.
It was very exciting in P1/2 yesterday when the postman delivered a postcard from our friend Zog. Zog had sent it all the way from the Amazon Rainforest!
In writing on Monday we will be writing our own postcards to Mrs Gardyne.
Have a look at home to see if you have any postcards you can bring in and share with the class.
There is a lot of cycling activity going on next week! Abby and Aimee are making bike powered smoothies, there will be our usual bike maintenance group and there is a family fun cycle on Friday afternoon.

The information below should tell you where and when the baton will be passing through East Lothian. Mrs Bennion is running the first leg through Tranent from the roundabout until halfway up Church Street. Let’s hope she’s been doing lots of training for the steep hill!
