Special Assembly

We were delighted welcome two special guests to assembly today – Heather Campbell from East Linton Library and East Lothian’s Provost Councillor John McMillan.

Heather congratulated those pupils who completed the Summer Reading Challenge and Provost McMillan brought us a very special certificate from the Lord Lyon to thank us for contributing to the competition to design a flag for East Lothian.

 

We also celebrated all of the winners from the East Linton Flower Show – what a lot of talented people we have in our school!!

Camp update!

A few sleepy faces around first thing at camp yesterday but the beautiful weather and fresh air soon woke everyone up – as did breakfast! Lots of activities going on – abseiling, orienteering – the highlight being jumping into the water from the canoes!!!

Lots of games and charades and dancing in the evening! All well 🙂

Camp update

After a safe arrival yesterday, everyone enjoyed lunch and then went quickly into activities – mountain biking, zip wire and archery! Everyone had a chance to meet all the fantastic instructors and all our new friends from other schools! Tea was yummy pizza with an evening full of activities planned 🙂

Minibeasts!

We have LOVED our minibeast topic in P2! Throughout the topic we have done lots of fun and interesting activities such as a minibeast hunt, investigation of micro-habitats, butterfly collages in art (using natural materials sourced from the playground), research posters and, to round the topic off, we shared our learning with the rest of the school at assembly. Enjoy these lovely photographs of the children hard at work 🙂
