P2/3 at the Zoo

P2/3 visited Edinburgh Zoo on Wednesday as part of their topic on rainforests. We had a really interesting rainforest talk and handling session to start the day. Next, we went to see the pandas. Tian Tian (Sweetie) was the most active, we saw her moving around munching bamboo. Yang Guang (Sunshine) was less active, he was having a snooze with his head buried in straw. We then ate alongside the chimpanzees before visiting the ‘Brilliant Birds’, monkeys and big cats. We also did our own hanging and swinging at the park! Thank you to Mats and Ellie’s mums for coming along to help.

Fairtrade Bake-Off Winners

Thank you to all the children who entered, and helped out at, the Fairtrade Bake-Off last Friday. Our judges, Kath and Amanda, had a difficult task in choosing three winners! Well done to Lewis in P1, Faye in P5 and Harvey in P7. 

Thank you also to those people who made and bought cupcakes for charity. We raised £261! The children will now chose which charity, or charities, to donate the money to. Extra cakes were sent down to the Fairtrade coffee morning at St Andrew Blackadder church, where some of our Fairtrade reps helped to serve. Here are Ava, Rosie and Amelia busy serving tea and cakes.

Fair Trade Bake Off

The Fair Trade committe have organised the Great Law Primary Fair Trade Bake Off and this morning all the results are on display in the GP room.  We have had a fantastic number of entries and the cup cakes will be judged by our specialist judges this morning.  Cakes will go on sale to children later in the morning.  You can see some of the wonderful creations here:
