The French Group has been busy this year encouraging everyone to have fun speaking French. Our weekly whole school challenge has been very successful and everyone is having a go! (The dinner ladies in particular are top of the class!) The French reps have been making a good job of keeping their classroom displays up to date as a reminder of the weekly challenge. This afternoon they were busy looking at resources and making up a wish list of things that will support the learning of French in all our classes. Bravo les enfants!
This afternoon Primary 1 continued their outdoor P.E. activities by pairing up with their Primary 7 buddies to have a go at orienteering. The older pupils were very good at showing the P.1 children how to follow the routes on the maps. Great teamwork everyone!
Two weeks ago, Primary 7 went to Dounan’s camp for Monday to Friday, We got put in our dorms with people from schools such as Dirleton, Gullane, Athelstaneford, etc. We did lots of activities such as Canoeing, Raft Build, Tree climb(45 feet), burn scramble, archery, problem solving, crate climb, Night line, etc. We all met a lot of new people and it was really good. I honestly think more people would love it there, its tiring but worth the time.

Every Friday P1 and P7s go to the school hall to practice our gala
staging and reading our speeches so we can try remember them
without the slip of paper. The P1s and P7s have been working very
hard to make tomorrow as special as it can be. Good luck for
Saturday P1s and P7s.
While hillwalking on Wednesday one group spotted an adder. One group were raft building and thought it was funny to tip Miss Salmon over and leave her stranded, she saw the funny side too! Our children needed to be woken this morning just before 8am, we do have some tired children. Food is still aplenty and all are enjoying the huge portions and cooked breakfast. This morning the campers awoke to t- shirt weather, a stark contrast to arrival day. Tonight is the disco!
It was another wet and soggy day but it did not hold back any of our pupils taking part and enjoying what was on offer. Last night they worked in groups for the egg challenge, Farmers Den game and snakes & ladders (games with a twist!)
Food has been overflowing and our pupils are ‘filling their boots’ with shepherds pie, chicken and bacon rolls.
All were fast asleep much quicker last night.
