Red Nose Day

We had great fun in the school, dressing up, getting our faces painted, having competitions. It was great fun and we made £18.63 for comic relief – which is GREAT!!!! Hope you enjoy our photos.



P3/4 topic

Dragons P3/4 have done a topic about castles. This is some of the art work that they have done. To make these fierce dragons they have used pastels, colouring pencils, paint and collage. Which is your favourite dragon??????

New link to Aberlady

A parent asked for information about the After School Club at Aberlady. Given the number of Athelstaneford children who go, it is important to promote this for other potential users. We hope this is helpful.
The link is under blogroll, at the bottom right hand side of this page.

Nursery News

Today the Nursery told us that they were planning to go shopping at Somerfield in North Berwick. They reported they were going shopping because they needed to collect snacks to eat at their snack time. They also decided that they would go to the park after, if they had time, as a little reward.nursery.jpg

Lunch Cafe

My job was to serve soup for the PTA Lunch Cafe. Other people served rolls, flapjacks, chocolate brownies and drinks. When the school parents came in I had a long line of people to serve. I now know how cafe staff feel!

My Lunch Cafe Story

I was doing the serving at our Peruvian Lunch Cafe! We were doing it to raise money for a charity called The Vine Trust. The nursery parents came first and it was hard serving them. I was to be given the money by the people to get in and give them the type of sandwich that they wanted, Alistair (Howdy,smallal) was to take their order of soup (lentil or tomato) and go get it and Lauren (Howdy,nonny) was to take their drink order (tea, coffee or juice)! Then the school bell rang! We all knew this would be a RUSH HOUR!!!!!In not even a minute everyone charged in! Parents, children and babies rushed in, all trying to get their, food sit down and chat with their friends (expect for the babies!) It was sooooo hard trying to keep them happy, the noise burst our eardrums and it was getting hard to concentrate! At last it was over. We finally got some lunch so we sat back and relaxed! After our lunch (a very quick lunch!) we got a chance to buy some gifts at the Peru shop then we all tried to escape doing the washing up. I looked around. A lot was going on. My friend, Jordan (Howdy,swanieboy) was doing a number grid (and a bet at the same time to sell all the squares!) and Hamish (Howdy,kingboy) was interviewing some parents!!!!! I bought a Peruvian peg doll, a bookmark and five number grid squares! Soon everything calmed down…well kind of!!!!!!!!! In the kitchen it was a struggle! Everyone was tripping over each other trying to help, the parent helpers were trying to wash the cooking equipment and some people were asking if they could help! At last someone came to pick up my brother and I. When I was in the car, heading home I was relieved to get away from all that noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
