Many thanks to everyone who came to help us walk down to the Brunton Hall yesterday to view the ‘Aviva Tour of Britain’. Despite the wait it was very exciting to see the cyclists zoom past!
It is very exciting that such a large scale cycling event is coming to Musselburgh, and we want to ensure that the children are given the opportunity to be involved.
The race attracts some of the world’s best known cyclists, such as Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins. The event is televised daily live with a highlights programme each night on ITV4.
On Wednesday 9th September 2015 the Tour will be coming to Musselburgh and we’ll be there to see it!
We will be walking as a school to view the Tour from our designated space on North High Street, just outside the Brunton Hall.
The nursery will leave at 9.00am and the P1-7 children will leave at 9.15am.
We need lots of adults to walk with us. If you’d be able to join us to walk to our viewing are and enjoy the race with us please contact the office.
Groovy Gymnastics with P2/3! on PhotoPeach
P2/3 had a fantastic time in gym balancing, jumping and rolling. They explored how their bodies could move and worked with partners to create some amazing balance shapes on the floor mats. Everyone loved jumping from the vault box and making shapes high in the air before they landed safely on the padded mat. We are all very excited about next week’s gymnastic lesson!

P5A visit Edinburgh Book Festival on PhotoPeach
P5A had great fun at Edinburgh Book Festival yesterday.
We listened to Nicola Davies. She spoke about her love her nature and wild animals and some of the travels she has been on. She even showed us some ibex poo….! Then she read from her new book, ‘The Leopard’s Tail’. It sounded so good, we bought it and one about a manatee too.
She certainly inspired us to read her books and find out more about endangered animals and how we can protect them.
Tux Typing Skills with P2/3 on PhotoPeach
P2/3 used the ‘Tux Typing’ software to help develop not only their keyboard and typing skills but also their knowledge of the alphabet when they visited the school computer suite for the first time this session. Everyone had great fun learning to navigate the computer keyboard and find the correct letter to type in before the timer ran out. Next week we are all looking forward to attempting the next level which means typing in words rather than just letters for even more of a challenge!
P2/3 Reading Buddies on PhotoPeach
P2/3 had great fun on Friday morning sharing their favourite books and the holiday postcards that they wrote by themselves with their P5 reading buddies. They also enjoyed exploring lots of different non fiction rainforest topic books together. Next week we are all looking forward to another fun paired reading session in the school library where P5 have been helping P2/3 to browse, read and then borrow books by themselves.
