P6 had a wonderful morning at North Berwick playing hockey with other P6 pupils from all the schools in our cluster. Many thanks to Fiona for organising a great festival.
P6 and the Preschool Nursery children have enjoyed reading together as part of #hookedonbooks week. The nursery children enjoyed having the opportunity to choose their own books and listened carefully to their reading buddies.

In P6 we have been using water colours by blending colours to make nice effects. We also drew Taj Mahal’s by drawing half then using tracing paper to trace it then by pressing down hard with a pencil. Next we stuck on our water colours to black card, cut out our Taj Mahal and stuck them both on and stuck them on the wall.

A few more photos to add to the Aberlady school trip to Traprain Law.
Today Aberlady Primary School had the Most Mega Marvellous Monday ever! To round off our whole school Anglo Saxon investigations, all the classes from P.1/2 up to P.7 took part in a wonderful day of outdoor learning at Traprain Law. The expedition was led by Andy, the head of the Aberlady archaeological dig. Andy took the children up to the top of Traprain Law and told them about the Anglo Saxon fort and settlements on this site and in the surrounding area. The children also took part in activities at the bottom of the hill including team building challenges, being nature detectives, archaeologists and much more. John the ranger and Katie the archaeologist were there to share their expertise along with Andy and the children also benefited from the support of a fantastic team of parent helpers. Mrs Currie and the staff were very proud and impressed with the responsible way that all our pupils conducted themselves, especially the older children who watched over the little ones so attentively. Sincere thanks to Andy, Katie, John and our team of parents for helping to make the day such a resounding success.
