P4 Run for the Rainforest Event

P4 ran their socks off today to raise money for the Rainforest Foundation UK. They ran for 30 minutes while their fabulous P6 mascots collected in all the donations. They raised more than £200 and put in so much hard work and effort to do so.

Thanks you all so much to those who supported us today. This means a lot to us and is very much appreciated.

P4, I am very very proud of you! Well Done!

The Cross Country Running Competition – by Daniel L

A while ago there was a running competition called The Cross Country.   It was held at Meadowmill and there were a lot of other schools there.

Daniel, Charlie, Tom, Scott, Fraser, took part in the big school boys race.  Tom won the category of boys from a larger school.

We all enjoyed taking part.

Euroquiz – By Sam and Freya P5/6

On the 20th of March was the Euroquiz and Gullane competed. Us, Christian and Jude were the competitors for the team.  We all had to do lots and lots of practising at school and home.

We went to Preston Lodge High school for the East Lothian Heat. The quizmaster was Mrs Tremmel, our headteacher. The other schools were Dunbar, Loretto, Pinkie, Musselburgh, Saltoun, Macmerry, Prestonpans and Gullane. The 1st round was geography. The 2nd round was language. The 3rd round was basically politics. After the 3rd round there was a break and we got sweets. We were tied with Loretto at that point! The 4th round was general knowledge. After the 4th round we were  ahead of Loretto by one point but we had to go into a final with them .By the 5th round only the top 2 teams remained, us and Loretto!!!! We drew the 5th round. Then we drew the tiebreaker. It was super tense. Then it went to sudden death. Then Loretto got an answer wrong so we won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That means we get to go to the Scottish Parliament’s Debating Chamber for the final.

We went to the Scottish Parliament to go to the Euroquiz final.  There were three rounds, Geography, Language and understanding europe.  It was a lot of fun and some of the questions were quite hard. We came 3rd out of the 31 schools (470 overall) who made it to the final we got bronze medals and pencil cases and we also got our goody bag.  🙂  🙂  🙂  🙂

The winners were St  Mary Duntocher and Strathblane were 2nd.

We enjoyed taking part and the main things we enjoyed were being away from school for something different and coming 3rd.

 

 

 

 

 

Volunteers Required for Summer Fair

Saturday’s getting closer and the weather forecast’s looking great for the summer fair. We will have burgers and Pimm’s and baking and bouncy castles and games and face painting and all sorts of fun for all the family. 

However, we are still a bit short of volunteers. If you could offer an hour and a half (11-12.30 or 12.30-2) to help on one of our stalls, we would be very grateful (especially if you’re a face painter!!). Get in touch by DM on Facebook or at gullanepta@gmail.com. 

Thanks! PTA

We went to the nursery recently to find out some things that they like to do!!

Emily likes to play in the house corner. Rory likes to make arty things. Reece likes to use the water tray. Ava enjoys going down the slide outside. Iona likes to play in the gym hall. Louise loved learning about halloween. Layla likes to play mums and dads and loves the toy dinosaurs!!! ROAR!!!!!!!!!!!

What have they learned???

They have also been planting daffodils.  They learned how to play the shapes board game.

Reece knows that people roll eggs down the hill because of Jesus. They also told us the planets they know:

Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Earth and Venus. They still are learning the rest.

All of the pupils love nursery and we will be finding out lots more later!!!
