P6 News 9th December!

This week has been very exciting with our circular economy challenge! It is all finally all coming together. We have been finishing off our group posters and creating presentations which we will use to support our Dragon’s Den style pitch. We will be filming these and sending them off to the Circular Economy Challenge. We were lucky to have three companies Viridor, Changeworks and Skanska came online with us to tell us about their circular economy companies. We were able to ask them questions and find out about different jobs and how we will use our enterprise skills when we’re older.

We had another live coding session with Codeclub and DigiLearn. This time we created a catch a reindeer game, having to use different variables. It was great to use our skills we learnt previously and to build on these. Lots of collaboration going on to help each other complete their game. We are having another Christmas themed live coding lesson next week involving Jazzy Christmas Jumpers for confident coders. Very exciting!

P6 parents- please continue to use Google Classroom for our weekly updates.

Welcoming our new P1s

Hello Everyone!
We would like you to take part in a special mission to welcome the new P1s who will be joining our school in August. We are going to try and create a scavenger hunt around the village for the boys and girls to take part in. We need your help! Can you create a picture to go in your window with a nice message to welcome the new P1s?It could be something like ‘Welcome to P1 at East Linton!’ or ‘Can’t wait to see you when you start P1’. We are sure you might have other great ideas too! Try and make them feel as welcome as possible!
Thank you so much for your help,
Mrs Hutchison and Miss Warrender

P7 Information

Hi Everyone,

As you are aware next week is our final week of school. I know everyone is tired but it would be great to see as many people involved next week as possible in the activities and google meet calls! A few things I want to highlight.
P7 Profile
This should be complete by the end of next week. All the tabs need to have some information in them. If you need help or you want me to check over it, you can share it with me.
Video Memory
I am making a video of your memories of primary school so that you have a record as you move forward. These should be short videos, though if that is a problem you can send a slide with your memory on it. I have only received 12 so I am missing 17!!
We should find out our P7 classes next week. I will let you know as soon as I have more information.
Visit to School
We are hoping that you will be able to come into school next week individually at a designated time in order to collect a gift from the school, myself, and your work. We are hoping the yearbooks will be available then as well.
Next week’s Google Meet 11am timetable:
Monday- last day of fun games
Tuesday – review of lockdown slides
Thursday – Most Likey to Award Ceremony
Friday – pajama/ ice cream party with end of year video
I have also planned some escape room activities, creating a dreamboard of what you would hope for in your next 15 years and P7 message slides. These slides are for everyone to write positive messages/ memories to your classmates in order to keep and remember. Some people have also created exciting feelings scales for you to use in your check ins next week!
Remember to watch the DGS Transition videos and keep up to date with the Twitter Page!
Have a lovely weekend.

P7 Transition Question and Answer session with DGS Guidance Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers,

Next week P7 are taking part in a question and answer session with Mrs Scott, guidance teacher at Dunbar Grammar school on Google Meet. This is an opportunity for the children to ask questions regarding transition to high school. This is part of the P7s transition process and essential for their move to high school. The children have been asked to send me their questions by Monday lunchtime so I can pass them on to Mrs Scott ahead of our meeting. The class is split in to two groups so that there is an opportunity for their questions to be answered.
Surnames B-L
Wednesday 10th June 10:30am-11:00am
Surnames M-Y
Wednesday 10th June 11:00am-11:30am
Google meet is a video chat website used by schools across the cluster. This can be accessed via phone, Ipad or computer/ laptop. To access google meet, the link is at the top of our P7 google classroom and it will be also shared in hangouts. The children do not need to speak but Mrs Scott is hoping to put some faces to names before the children move up to high school.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Kind regards,
Miss Warrender
