PTS Football kicks off in Tranent!

Sandersons Wynd1

For the first time ever school football within the Tranent Cluster will now take place after-school on various occasions throughout the year, with the first of these events taking place at Forresters Park 3G on Wednesday 26th November.

With 4 schools involved in 6 matches, there were some incredible games on display. Every game played was run from one end of the pitch to the other and there were also some brilliant goals to be seen. Young Cameron Higgins from Windygoul Primary got the pick of the bunch in a convincing win over St Martins. His powerful “wind-assisted” strike from inside his own half caught out the St Martins goalkeeper and nestled neatly in the bottom corner of the goal prompting massive celebrations from the players…and their parents!

Full match results are listed below;

St Martins RC                     0 v 4       Windygoul (1)

Sandersons Wynd           1 v 3       Ormiston

Windygoul (2)                    6 v 1       St Martins

Sandersons Wynd           0 v 3       Windygoul (1)

St Martins RC                     1 v 2       Ormiston

Windygoul (2)                    4 v 1       Sandersons Wynd

All of these teams are training on a weekly basis and with another event due to be scheduled for after the Christmas Break, the teams have assured their coaches they will be working hard in training to improve for the next bout!

If you would like to get involved in any of Active Schools PTS Competitions please get in touch with your Active Schools Coordinators.

East Lothian Council’s Children and Wellbeing spokesperson Councillor Shamin Akhtar says:

‘The East Lothian Council Community Planning Children’s Strategic Partnership would like to know what you think about the Draft Plan before we draw up the final version at the end of the year. We want to hear from children, young people, parents, carers, families and communities.

Children in Need


Will you be a modern day super hero like a nurse or a firefighter? Or will you stick to a traditional superhero like Superman or Wonderwoman? This Friday pupils and staff at Sanderson’s Wynd will be dressing as superheroes to raise money for Children in Need.

our_new_logoWe have been learning about the United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child, which is like another superhero for children! There are several articles of the UNCRC that relate to work programmes funded by Children in Need money. As we will be learning about Children in Need at assembly today, could each class have a look at the 42 articles and post in a comment which ones you think relate to Children in Need?


Meet our new Pupil Voice

Pupil Voice
This is our new Pupil Voice Committee for this year. They had their first meeting on Thursday 22nd October. To kick start their projects the children thought it would be a good idea to have a Water Awareness Day. This has been organised for Tuesday 17th November and on that that day they would like the boys and girls in Sanderson’s Wynd to find out about what it is like for children in other countries, who do not have clean water, who have to live with droughts or floods and who have suffered because of poor harvests.

P6/7 WW2 Topic

IMG_1034      We have really enjoyed learning about WW2 this term. We have learnt all about evacuation, rationing, The Blitz, British and German Vehicles used during WW2, Propaganda posters, D-day, VE-day and Anne Frank.

IMG_1036On Friday 25th September, we held an Open Morning to share our WW2 homework. Many classes within the school dropped by and commented on our Anderson shelters, gas masks, propaganda posters or tasted some delicious recipes from 1940’s. It was a great experience to share our learning with the school.IMG_1042

Note to Parents – we are having a WW2 Open Afternoon on DSCN0065Tuesday 20th October from 1.30pm to 2.30pm. This is a chance for you to see what we have been learning about in class and to share some of our WW2 knowledge with you.DSCN0057DSCN0063
