What a fantastic time P6 and P7 had at their six team hockey tournament this afternoon in the glorious sunshine! They had a great chance to use their skills which Mrs. Jones our PE teacher has been teaching them over the past few weeks and what expertise there was! Although…… during play there was a pitch invasion by …..the ROMANS from P3/4!! This just goes to show what wonderful surprises always await our pupils at East Linton Primary School!
Primary 7 had a wonderful walk to the River Tyne this afternoon in the glorious sunshine, where they carried out some river dipping, classification and identification of a wide variety of water creatures. Many thanks to Sam the new ranger and to our parent helpers Mrs. Govan, Mrs. Morgan and Mr. Thorman. A great time was had by all!
Venturing Out Outdoor Activities ProgrammeHave a look at some ideas of what to do in the summer holidays. Antony Stone’s company Venturing Out, as an associate of East Lothian Council’s Outdoor Learning Service has provided outdoor learning for our P4 camp and John Muir Award Group in previous years and comes highly recommended.
Here are some photos of our children out at breaktime, proving that there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes!_Snow_pictures_(FAO_Mrs_Wareham)
A big thank you to everyone who turned out on Sunday morning to help with clearing snow from around the school. A special thank you to Tommy Tait and his digger who came and made very light work of shifting a huge volume of snow. The council have also been working to clear the path from Longstone Ave to school.
We are planning to open as normal tomorrow morning. Please try to walk rather than driving your children to school. Please also make sure that children are suitably dressed for the weather with warm, waterproof clothing and boots or wellies. We are hoping to get outside for part of the day so please bring a hat, gloves and a scarf as well as a change of clothes in your school bag.
After an ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS Farewell Disco, Primary 7 returned from School Camp on Friday morning. Since then, we have had great fun reminiscing, by sharing our experiences and incredible achievements, proving just how successful Dounan’s 2010 has been! Each and every child was a credit to the School and to their Parents!
