I hope you have all had a lovely summer holiday and I hope you all have a wonderful time back at school. I am very sad not to be there at East Linton this year, but I know you will all will have lots of fun this year. Good luck in your new classes and I will keep an eye out for all the wonderful things happening at East Linton.
Lots of Love
Next week is HEALTH WEEK!
We have some fantastic things planned, including the Healthy Cafe mentionned below by Miss Lawson.
Our focus is being healthy INSIDE AND OUT. So we are not just thinking about physical activity, but also eating well, relaxing and using our minds for creative and mental challenges.
Parents are invited to join in EARLY MORNING AEROBICS at 8.45am each morning. So pop on your trainers and come jump up and down to some good music.
Also if any parents wish to come on our WHOLE SCHOOL WALK, please give your name to your child’s teacher or to Audrey.
P.S Keep an eye out for photos from our week being posted!
After watching Miss Donaldson’s fascinating slide show of her summer trip to Burundi, P4 were justly awarded with the Assembly cup for their excellent conduct. I was very proud of them! On another positive note, Amelia was the first in the class to be invited to have lunch at the Golden Table. Look at her dining in style! Well done to Amelia and to all of P4 for a great start to the new term!
Really looking forward to meeting all my pupils in P4 on Monday. It’s going to be an exciting year for all of us!
P4 GO BANANAS!
As part of our Health week, Primary 4 decided to organise a
“TUTTI FRUITY TUCK SHOP”.
We sold a variety of fruit every day for a week at only 10p each! and as it was such a HUGE!! success we have since then, sold fruit ONE day per week. There has been SUCH a good response from the ALL the classes – THANK YOU for YOUR SUPPORT (especially P6 who have bought the most! and Mags one of our Playground Supervisors who has been our STAR STAFF buyer! )
As a result of this, we are THINKING about having our
“TUTTI FRUITY TUCK SHOP” EVERY day!!
SO!!… Could you PLEASE let us know what you think?
Your ideas are VERY important to us!….. So get typing!!…….
We eagerly await your opinion!
We look forward to reading your comments on the blog.
“POST A COMMENT TODAY…….. THE HEALTHY EATING WAY!!”
As part of our Health Week activities every class from P1 to P7 went out to the field with Mrs Mckendrick and ran (or walked if they were getting tired) around a half mile circuit. Every time they completed a circuit they received a token and these were added up at the end of the day to see how far the school had travelled.
These were the results for the individual classes:
P1 57 miles
P2 71 miles
P3 70 miles
P4 66 miles
P5 104 miles
P6 78 miles
P7 97 and a half miles
Some classes have been outside skipping with Emma our Active Schools Co-ordinator.
Primary 4 are getting very excited because there is only one more sleep before they are off to Innerwick. Keep your fingers crossed for some good weather and remember to pack your teddy!
