Plastic Bottle Support!

 41 plastic bottles of water saved for another occasion on Friday thanks to our P1-3 families. We are encouraging families to leave their packed lunch plastic bottle if they don’t need it.

Well done everyone what a great start!

Christmas Fair

It’s been very very busy in P1 with the run up to Christmas… the Nativity, the Fair, the Lunch and next week the Party and Church Service!

But we have even managed to squeeze in creating a few crafts to sell at tomorrow’s fair!

Hopefully everyone now knows the time that your children will be manning our stalls from the stickers yesterday.

We have worked very hard to create some beautiful handmade, bespoke and unique wrapping paper and gift tags!

There will be the individual bundle created by your child for you to buy, these are rolled up and ready to go!
Also there are lots of extras hanging up and on the mug trees for you to peruse and buy too!

Prices are-
£1.50 for the rolled up+ribboned bundle = 2 sheets of wrapping paper and 2 gift tags made by your child
Individual sheets of wrapping paper- 50p each or 3 for £1
Gift tags- 30p each or 4 for £1

** Also not to worry if you cannot make it along tomorrow as we will save your child’s bundle and if you send in the money we will happily send them home for you.**

In the meantime we hope you are enjoying our Nativity!

Victorian Open Day P5

Last Friday P5 opened their classroom to parents and carers to share their learning on Victorian Life.

The P5s set up the classroom with stations for the visitors to visit. We had a Shop area, slates for writing on, printing, timelines, power points on various Victorian subjects compiled by the children, artefacts to look at and to guess what they were used for! all organised and set up by the children. We had a display of “Victorian East Linton” in photographs, that was of great interest to everyone, creating a lot of chat! A big thank you to Heather at the library for help with this and to Gary Menzies for emailing some of his collection.

Well done to Lara, Sarah’s mum and Glen’s mum for guessing what Hedgie the holey hedgehog was… ! He was a Victorian planter for crocus bulbs. In the Spring, the crocus flowers would grow  and give Hedgie colourful “spines!”. Other items included a washboard, an old stone “pig” for warming the bed, an old darning “mushroom” to make a surface for helping darning socks!  to name but a few.

It was great to have such a brilliant turn out! Thank you everyone who came and an extra BIG thank you to the class 🙂
