P4 Made £5 Grow!

P4 held a market in the school hall today as one of the final stages of their Make £5 Grow project with Virgin Money.

Lots of us sold our handmade products, such as: bookmarks, art kits, tattoos and face paints, baking, woodwork, plants, jewellery and much more!

We are almost at our target and with more selling to be done we are feeling really positive about our achievements! Thank you also to those who have been helping us and showed support at the market today!

Final profit total to follow!

P4 Titanic Posters

In P4, we have been looking at the different passengers that were on the Titanic, and how social class made a big difference to the conditions that people experienced on board the Titanic.

In groups, P4 researched using books and online to find out about a social class and presented to the rest of the class.

They looks AMAZING!


All East Lothian Council schools, nurseries and specialist education provision will re-open tomorrow (Monday).
We are working closely with providers who transport pupils from more isolated rural areas (outwith towns and villages) to and from our schools. Transport providers will contact parents directly if there are any difficulties collecting pupils from these locations due to road conditions.
There has been a huge amount of effort by our teams to clear snow from pathways – thanks to parents and residents for their assistance with this.
Please be aware of surface conditions given the low temperature. Ensure children walking to school have appropriate footwear and are dressed to the conditions. In the interests of the safety, children and young people should go straight into the school building on arrival.

It’s still snowing! We miss you !

Good morning everyone!

Hope you are all safe and warm! Your teachers have been working hard during these snow days to plan some fantastic learning for you , so hopefully we will be seeing you all on Monday.

P4-7 – hope you are doing lots of lovely reading – remember to use ARbookfinder online to check if a book is on AR.

p1-3 – carry on with any reading book you have or enjoy a comic or magazine.

We do hope you have been getting creative in the snow – send us your photos so we can put them on our blog!


Take care everyone.

Hello P5!

Hello P5

As we’ve been learning about writing instructions how about… either
1) make a snow sculpture and then write the instructions, How to make a Snow….?
2)Research Optical Illusions for children.
Create your own picture using ideas researched. OP-ART for kids is a good one.
3)Who was M. C. Escher? Find out about this artist and create an information poster with his nationality, when and where he was born, why he was famous.
4) Top Marks maths games “Hit the Button”


Stay safe
