The 4 pupils representing Innerwick were fantastic last night. Competing against 2 teams from Dunbar, 2 teams from East Linton, 2 teams from West Barns and a team from Belhaven we were joint leaders after 6 rounds. Unfortunately we were pipped at the post after the final (8th) round finishing a superb 3rd place behind the two Dunbar teams.
Well done to the 4 of you. You were a credit to the school.
We had an exciting day yesterday. First Iain Gray, the MSP for East Lothian came into class to talk to us about his job. He described the sort of things an MSP did and what a typical week was like for him. It sounded like an exciting job. It really helped us understand our Democracy topic. Then later on we had an outing to visit the RNLI down in Dunbar. This is our nominated charity for the year and we wanted to see what the station was like. We got to sit in the small lifeboat and were told all about the dangers of the water and how to keep ourselves, and others, safe around water………………………………… and we also got to see Sammy the Seal!
The football team did the school proud again in the tournament at Hallhill with two wins , two draws and two narrow defeats in their six matches. And as usual, we had to play against much bigger schools (with much taller P7’s!!)
Well done boys. Great football skills and equally great sportsmanship.
This week we had Iain Clark from the Parliament Outreach visit P6/7 to talk to us about all sorts of things to do with the Scottish Parliament.
We learned about the building, about MSPs and about its history. We also held an election with ballot papers and everything. We then had a debate to see if we could pass a law – and we did. The class decided to ban smoking altogether!
We all found out lots of things and had a great time. Thanks Iain!!
