We raised £46.50 for Marie Curie with our homemade smoothies and wear something yellow fundraiser. Thank you to everyone who supported us from providing blenders, to wearing yellow and buying smoothies. They were a huge hit! A special thank you so Mrs Thompson and Mrs Charbonnier for helping with the smoothie making and the cleaning up afterwards (children, you need more practise with the last part!)






There was great excitement when the Scottish Open Cup came to visit P5 on Monday! We enjoyed our Ryder Cup topic at the beginning of P5 and some of us were getting really good at Club Golf. Who knows, maybe one of us will be lifting this cup and the Scottish Open Champion in the future!



We ended our walks the same way we started them, with a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of rain! It didn’t dampen our spirits though. Amisfield Garden had undergone some amazing transformations in the year we have been visiting and we had great fun walking round the garden spotting all of the differences from our first visit. We had a pic I’ve lunch then played a massive game of hide and seek where Joss (the tallest in the class) was by far the best hider ūüôā

We would like to say a huge thank you to June for letting us visit this year and for helping us achieve our John Muir Award. I’m sure we’ll all be back to visit soon!

5A were lucky enough to be¬†part of the unveiling ceremony for a new plaque from Historic Scotland recognising John Muir as an important Scot! It happened while we were in Dunbar visiting John Muir’s Birthplace. We had a great morning learning more about John’s life and celebrating his legacy.

5A had a very successful trip to Amisfield Walled Garden last week.  We got to see parts of the old Amisfield Estate that are still standing today.  When we got to the garden we planted shrubs to attract birds to the garden.  These plants will provide food and shelter as they grow.  We also hung bundles of nesting materials from the trees and two great tits came to investigate just after we put them up!



Some SSPCA wardens in training in 5A today! A big thank you to the real wardens who came to talk to us today, we learned lots and had great fun too!




Action shots from today’s drama game ‘Name that Fairy Tale!’

It seems we have some budding actors in 5A and some young pantomime dames in the making too (great job Matthew!)




The class asked me to post a picture of their snowmen biscuits today as many of them weren’t going to make it home!

I hope you all enjoyed them and that you have a great Christmas when it comes. You’ve all worked hard this year so I’m sure Santa will have something special for you. See you in the New Year!


5A are all dressed up and ready to party! Hope everyone’s got their dancing shoes on!

Everyone now has a daffodil to look after until it blooms in the new year when we will be using them to raise money for Marie Curie as part of their Mini Pots of Care. image image image   We had great fun being Mad Scientists today. A big thank you goes to Knox Academy Science Department for letting us borrow their equipment. Our homemade batteries were a huge success!
