Today P1/2/3 shared all the interesting facts that they learned in their space topic. Thanks to everyone who came along to the assembly.
This morning we went to the lifeboat station in Dunbar. We split into two groups. One group watched a film about staying safe near water and the other group climbed onboard a lifeboat. The groups then swapped over. We learned lots of interesting things and heard how the lifeboat rescues people at sea. We looked at the lifeboatmen’s uniforms, and Maddie, Ellie and Callum B. tried on different uniforms.
We then walked along to see the big lifeboat anchored in the harbour.
We all had a lovely time and then it was time to return to school.

Yesterday P1/2/3 visited the museum to find out how electricity is produced from coal. We were shown around by an ex-miner who started working there when he was only 15! Our visit included a trip into the mine, a look around two exhibition rooms, and starting and stopping the steam engine which hauled the cages for the pit.
