European Day of Languages

Friday 26th September is European Day of Languages which is a day to celebrate all the different languages spoken and to encourage life-long language learning. P6 and P7 are learning French and German but P7 had a go at Spanish as well today and sang “La Bamba” They did very well and had great fun! Gracias Senorita Fleming!

Do you remember the words?

Our Roman Visitor

(click on the images for a bigger picture)

Here is a picture of Pvblivs Clavdivs Tacitvs.  He visited our class on Tuesday. He had a real sword, a real dagger, a real wooden shield and had red feathers on his helmet.  He had brown leather sandals and stinky socks!

We were a bit scared till we found out he was not a real soldier, just a man dressed up as one. He told us lots of stories about what it was like being a Roman soldier.

What is inside your lunchbox?

P3 have been learning about healthy eating and how we can group foods into different categories. We have been working hard to make a big display in our classroom, and have been doing activities to do with healthy eating and food in all our different subjects, such as maths and ICT.

Have a look at our wondeful lunchboxes – fantastic work Primary Three!!!!!

Mrs Gordon and I are very happy with how hard the P3’s worked not only in making their own lunchboxes but also in helping to create the classroom display.

Beautiful Scotland Awards

Well done East Linton!

Our village received  silver in the large village category of Beautiful Scotland Awards and was also named as the most improved village.

A Special Award for Something Special was given for the school’s extra curricular work about John Muir. David Affleck showed us the awards at assembly.



Grand Opening of Wildlife Garden

The opening of our Wildlife Garden will take place on Friday 3rd October. All parents and carers are cordially invited to come along and witness representatives from each class cutting a ceremonial ribbon. Pupils can take part in a Garden Hat Competition and we will also be a venue for The Big Draw event where we aim to cover the playground in chalk nature drawings.

Fingers crossed for good weather!

P4 win the assembly cup!

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!

Apple Crumble

Mmm... tasty!!Kay Henderson kindly brought in apples from her garden. We made apple crumble for snack with the help of Matthew and Jamie.  Firstly we chopped the apples, then we made the crumble topping.   Lots of us really enjoyed it. It was delicious.
