P2 worked extremely hard to plan and prepare a café for their families. They did it all… planned the menu, designed the menu, made the food, set up the café AND served the food!
I am extremely proud of how well you all did and you should be very proud of yourselves too for all of the hard work that you put in. The café was a wonderful success with lots of money raised for Save the Children.
Well done P2 and a big thank you to our customers for their extremely generous donations!

P2 have been testing their taste buds this afternoon and tried a variety of foods as part of our Cafes topic!
We tried things such as olives, chorizo, feta, grapefruit, mango and tablet and discussed the different flavours and textures that we discovered. We were also very vocal about what we liked and what we disliked!!
Well done P2 for trying something new 🙂
A huge thank you to Michelle and Alistair Aitken for bringing in a very special visitor to P2 this morning. As part of our Health and Wellbeing topic, ‘Living and Growing’, we are learning all about where animals, and ourselves, come from so Lavender the Lamb came to say hello!
Alistair also spoke to the children about his work as a farmer and about food produce local to East Lothian. The children asked lots of questions and learned a lot!
Enjoy these photos of Lavender and the P2 🙂
To kick off our new topic, Cafés, P2 worked in groups to create their own role play set in a café. They used props and money, created their own dialogue and performed with confidence. Well done! 🙂

We had such fun at Dirleton Castle today! We explored the castle and its grounds and learned all about its features and the people that used to live there. A big thank you to our knight, Andrew, for showing us around!
Are you who they’re looking for?
We urgently need more people to take the plunge and find out about fostering with East Lothian Council.
East Lothian Council’s Education and Children’s Services spokesperson Councillor Shamin Akhtar says:
‘We have children and young people who need foster carers urgently. The demand is always growing and we need more people to come forward very soon and give their love and support to some vulnerable children and young people who really, really need them.
‘As you know, we set great store in East Lothian in keeping our looked-after children in or very close to East Lothian, so that very vulnerable children don’t have to change schools or lose touch with their friends and wider families. Not every fostering agency thinks this is important but we do – we really see the value in not sending children far away from everyone and everything they know. So, I’d just like to say how grateful I am to all our current foster carers for choosing to Foster East Lothian and for the fantastic job they do – they make a difference every day. I hope that there will be a number of people reading this article now who will also be able to make that difference and be the ones that our children so desperately need.’
