P2 have been learning about houses and homes. Today they have left their classroom and set up their class in two tents in the school grounds. Inspired by their recent work on “Send my friend to school” they are finding out what is is like for children around the world who have their lessons sitting under trees or in tents with their books on their knees. They have had snack outside and are planning to picnic for lunch too!
The Nursery were very excited today when they had a visit from the ambulance as part of their work on “people who help us”. Have a look at these photos and leave us a comment!
The “Sharing” event for the John Muir Group will take place on Monday 2nd June at 7pm. Attendance will be by invitation nearer the time.
In the meantime…have a look at some of the photos taken when we went on our visit to John Muir’s Birthplace in Dunbar

The whole school was out and about in the village this morning, dressed in protective tabards and gloves and wielding litter pickers. It was a damp and drizzly morning but that did not deter us and we collected a fantastic amount of litter – 8 large sacks full!
Thanks to all the parent and community helpers who joined in.
The Nursery children were very lucky to go out to watch the planting of the exciting new willow den in the playground. They were amazed to find out that the willow didn’t have any roots! We learned that the willow just starts to grow when it is planted into the soil. Helen told us that the very tall willow you can see, took two years to grow.
