The menu for this day will be as follows; –

Lentil Soup

All of the pupils will be having their lunch together at 12.15pm and Mrs Baxter will pipe the haggis in, the pupils will say the Selkirk Grace and Miss Veitch will give the address to the Haggis.

This will be a fun packed lunch and we would encourage as many parents/carers, familly and friends to come along to watch the children enjoying their Burns Meal!

Moya Anderson has also offered to make christmas wreaths which will be available to buy for £10.00 each. If anybody would like to order a wreath, please let Tina know in the school office and she will pass this onto Moya.

If anybody has any raffle prizes that they would like to hand in, please send them into the school office on Monday.

Research for P6/7

Whilst the pupils are unable to get to school because of the snow, Mrs Baxter has asked, if it would be possible for the pupils from P6/7 to look at favourite recipes at home to bring in and share them with the class. This is as part of the school topic on Food.

Also, because the P6/7 pupils are looking at weight in Maths, could they please pay attention to weights and measurements in their recipes and what they would need to do if they wanted to prepare their recipe for a class of 14 (multiply/divide etc).

Your assistance with this would be appreciated and we look forward to finding out about everybody’s favourite recipes when school re-opens.

Tell a Story Day – Friday 29th October 2010

The pupils of Innerwick Primary School held story telling sessions in school on 29th October as part of  Tell-A-Story Day.

Tell – A – Story – Day is a national celebration of storytelling all over Scotland and people were making, sharing and listening to stories in schools, libraries, community centres, churches, hospitals and some more unusual places.

The children of Innerwick invited parents/grandparents/friends/relatives and members of the community into school to either tell stories or to come and listen to the stories that were being told.

We are very grateful to those who came to tell stories and as you will see from the pictures, the pupils of Innerwick really enjoyed listening to them!

Lothian Games

Innerwick P5-P7 took part in “The Lothian Games” at QMU on 14th October, a joint venture between East Lothian and Midlothian councils. A number of primary schools took part, each with their dance routine based on a sport. Innerwick’s sport was hockey. Over 6 weeks with Dance Specialist, Beth Noble, they created and rehearsed a routine to perform on the day in front of an audience of parents and other participating schools. Well done – it was a great experience!
