Please find above , a summary of the day and some feedback from last week’s ELC Youth Summit
We were so proud to have 2 of our P7 pupils represent the school last week at the ELC Youth Summit. Our pupils took part in debates and idea generating tasks all about our young people in East Lothian and their futures. They also had the chance to ask Scotland’s Commissioner for Young People a question about helping children living in poverty. Well done girls!
Well I don’t know what happened to my P1 today, none of them turned up?!
But instead I had the fabulous treat of lots of our favourite book characters coming to East Linton P1 instead!
The register was fantastic this morning, we had Tinkerbell and Princess Anna, the Big AND Small Skeletons from Funny Bones, The Tiger who came to tea and Aerial the Mermaid! The Room on the Broom kind Witch and Daisy Artichoke! We even had the odd superhero flying in, Supergirl next to Anne of Green Gables, Cottontail and Horrid Henry, Dogs and Pirates along with Rapunzel and her looooooong multi-coloured hair, a Ship’s Captain to Harry Potter, Jasmine even brought in her sheepdog Skye, Charlie managed to sneak away from his Chocolate Factory and James came without his Giant Peach, thank goodness or there wouldn’t be any more room for the Enormous Crocodile!
We had a great day and week, celebrating all the books we love reading, discussing and writing about our favourite characters, sharing our favourites and recommendations with the class, today’s mini book swap was fun and to hear the different discussions and descriptions too.
So thank you for the wonderful effort of costumes and bringing in special books, it was a fantastic World Book Day!
Miss Grierson and P1 🙂
Well done P2 for making such an effort – you’re outfits were wonderful!
Miss Dixon 🙂
Although P2’s trip to Dirleton Castle was unfortunately cancelled due to the snow we were lucky enough to have Knights Andrew and Cameron visit us at school!
They talked us through the history of Dirleton Castle and they told us all about the armour that they were wearing – we even got to try some helmets on!
We asked super questions and found out a lot about how knights lived. We hope to be able to reschedule our trip and visit Andrew and Cameron at Dirleton another time!

Primary 7 put their scientific skills to the test this morning during the Fizz Pop Bang workshop from generation Science as part of the Edinburgh Science Festival – big thank you to Sasha and Andrew for leading our experiments…….well done to our budding scientists of the future!
We have had a wonderful afternoon in P2 with Sally from Field to Fork (Hirsel Estate). She told us all about food that is grown and produced in Scotland – perfect for our Scotland topic! We learned all about oats, how they are grown, harvested and what food can be made out of them – we even got to make our own oatcakes. Yum!
