P6/7 Art Workshop

P6/7 have been participating in a Visual Arts Scotland workshop this week with artist Hazel Vellacott. On Monday we visited the VAS Annual Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy. Hazel and another artist, Liza Green, showed us around the exhibition. We thought about what may have been the inspiration behind some of the pieces of art and then we did sketches of those we particularly liked. On Wednesday, Hazel, along with East Lothian artist Alison Burt, came to school and showed us how to do a technique called monoprinting. We had great fun filling our sketch books with prints.

P6/7 Sports Hall For All Project

P6/7 have been working with Sandra King, our community development officer, to build a 3D model of our school, its grounds and the surrounding area. The model is going to be used as part of the Sports Hall For All project, as the school grounds are one of three proposed possible sites for a new sports centre. Models of all of the sites will be displayed at the Family Fun Event at Port Seton Centre on Saturday 20th March where local residents will have the opportunity to share their ideas.

P6/7 Fair Trade Afternoon Tea

P6/7’s Fair Trade afternoon tea was a great success. Over fifty guests enjoyed our homebaking, made with Fair Trade products wherever possible, washed down with Fair Trade tea and coffee. The aim of our tea was to raise awareness of Fair Trade products and to encourage people to buy Fair Trade. Many of our guests successfully completed a Fair Trade quiz to show what they had learned from our information displays and slideshow, and have promised to switch one item to a Fair Trade brand next time they shop. As we are working towards achieving the Fair Trade Schools Award we will be continuing to hold Fair Trade events throughout the year.

Tree Planting

The children of Cockenzie nursery and primary helped the community council plant trees in the school grounds. They watched as the digger dug the large holes and the community council lifted the trees into them. The children then helped put the soil back into the ground.

Twinkle Talent Show!

Welcome to our blog! We are just wanting to tell you a little bit about the talent show that we put on. For starters it is called ‘Twinkle Talent Show’ and we raised the money for the Sick Childrens Hospital Edinburgh. The auditions were great and all the children who auditioned were very talented! Those acts that were successful were put through to the Final Show! The first act to perform were two little song birds called Georgia & Isla from P1M!    It was a great success and we raised £248.80
