Term 3 Scotland. P4

This term we will be learning about Scotland.  Here in P4 we are focusing on our local environment. We will be using maps to help us get out and about to look at different types of housing, businesses and services. We will also be learning about Scottish culture, music, stories and celebrations.

History in the making!

At 11:03am this morning the whole school sat in the assembly hall and watched the Soyuz spacecraft launch into space from Kazakhstan. It was amazing to watch this moment in history and we will be following Tim Peake’s adventures as he docks with the International Space Station and spends 6 months on board carrying out scientific experiments.

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!
