Milk money for next term

Tomorrow (1 July) was the cut off date for milk money for next session.  If you wish your child to take milk and have not already sent in money or paid on-line please do so before the end of the day tomorrow.  This will allow me to place an order for next session so that the children have milk on their return to school.

Thanks

Rockpool Rambles

Yesterday we went to the Seabird Centre in North Berwick to further our learning about the seashore.


We learned how to pick up a crab. It was awesome.
Erin

It was fun, we went around the beach.
Andrew

It was very interesting at the beach. Sam and Robin found about 7 crabs. Michael, Katy and I found an anemone and put it in our buckets and its tentacles opened. Niamh found 2 crabs but gave one to use because they started to fight. After we had been exploring on the beach we went inside to look at the aquarium. It was filled with things they have at the beach. Then we looked at the cameras and looked at all the seabird on Fidra and the Bass Rock. The trip was great fun and the coach home was good as well.

Yesterday we went to North Berwick beach. We found anemones and prawns but didn’t find any starfish. We learned that some hermit crabs get an anemone on the shell to have protection because the tentacles on an anemone are poisonous.

Five Go Gorge Walking

No it’s not a new Enid Blyton novel, but another exciting episode in the lives of P5. This week the brave souls from P5 (and a couple of stalwart mums) went gorge walking in the wild outdoors. Follow this link to see the photographic evidence!

Newsletter and Rocks Rock Reading Questionnaire

Dear Parents/Carers

Just to let you know that we have sent out information to Nursery (am), P1,  P1/2 and P2/3 regarding Ross Rocks Reading along with various other information.   Unfortunately out photocopier has broken down and we are waiting for an engineer to arrive.  We hope that all other classes will get the info tomorrow.  No email info was sent as there was a return slip attached for each pupil.
