Primary 2b had fantastic fun this morning doing all kinds of experiments. From discovering that warm air takes up more room than cold air to making a paper clip float !! Thank you very much to the parents who came in to help.
Primary 5b have been for a look around primary 6’s Victorian Museum. We thought it was absolutely amazing and that the primary 6’s have put a lot of effort in to making it. They did a lot of talented work. Well done Primary 6!
5B and Miss Thomson took their Fairtrade Show to the airwaves last night on local community radio station East Coast FM. The crew, Humphrey, Anna, Finlay, Cameron, Stuart and Mairi gave a clear message of why we should all be buying Fairtrade. Their competition, to come up with a logo for Law Primary Fairtrade Campaign, brought in listeners from all over the county. The winner was Poppy and Anastasia from Musselburgh with ‘Make it Fair with Fair Trade’ A close second was Law’s own Lucy Robinson with ‘Put the Fair back in Fair Trade’. The girls won Fairtrade Chocolate and the winning slogans will be displayed around the school. Thank you and well done to all the other entries. It was a very close competition
If you missed their show and would like to hear it speak to someone in 5C.

Congratulations to the P6 team from Law who won the East Lothian heat of the Euroquiz 2013 on Wednesday. They travelled to Loretto School in Musselburgh and competed against 10 teams from other schools in the county. After four rounds the two highest scoring teams went into the final round where they were put on the spot with 20 questions about European history, geography, culture and current affairs. They beat Loretto 10-7 and so now go forward to represent East Lothian in the national final at the Scottish Parliament in May. Well done for all your hard work!
The theme this year is “Invention & Discoveries”. It is a theme that gives us an opportunity to celebrate the “everyman” scientist and inventor and highlight the science and engineering behind the nation’s favourite gadgets and goods. Here at Law we are looking forward to taking part in year stage carousels, quizzes, national competitions, themed assemblies, workshops held by parents and Iain Gray MSP and a chance to be involved in a special science showcase.
The children are asked to engage with science in the home and bring back to school something they have discovered, invented, researched or made. Letters have been sent out this week. Ideas to get you started can be found below, paper versions are on the science noticeboard near the P4/5 door.
Pupils are also asked to bring in a topical news item with a science theme.
Science and engineering and its application is central to our economic future, and to our health and wellbeing as individuals and as a society. At Law we plan to help our pupils develop curiosity and understanding science and develop a lifelong interest in the sciences. We aim to make science week fun!
The winning entrants of our Fairtrade recipe book celebrated with the first copies of the book on Friday. They were also presented with wristbands and certificates from Mrs Wareham. One pupil from each class has a recipe in the book and Nancy from P1 designed the front cover. Well done to everyone for their delicious recipes and their neat cursive handwriting. Thank you to the whole school for taking part in the competition and to East Lothian Council Fairtrade small grant fund for helping with printing costs.
The books were on sale at the PTA Spring Fair on Saturday 9th March and they raised £52 for charity. P7s kindly gave their time to man the stall. A few copies are still available at the school office for £1.
In P5C we have been learning about fair trade and the journey of chocolate, from the cocoa bean to the chocolate bar. We are going to present an East Coast FM fair trade special on Thursday 14th of March from 6-7pm. If you want to hear about what we have been learning and find out more about the benefits of fair trade listen in by going to www.eastcoastfm.co.uk.
We are also in the process of making a play about a girl who realises how important supporting fair trade is and decides to share the message with her family. This is coming soon, we will post another message to tell you when it is ready.
Mikey and James, P5C
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.
