Thank you to everyone who entered the Gardening Show this year. We have had some fantastic and very creative entries. The judges looked at everything this afternoon and after a lot of head scratching have picked the winners in each category. Come along tomorrow morning and have a look.
Representatives from each year stage will be helping to plant our fruit trees tomorrow too. We are looking forward to seeing the orchard take shape.
The orchard group are delighted to announce that Law will have a new orchard. We are getting eight fruit trees from Grounds For Learning. We will get four apple trees and four plum trees. They are going to be delivered on the 19th of February.Watch this space for more updates.
Parents from the Middle Area are invited on Friday 8th February 9.30 am to share our Scottish performances. A treat in store. Come if you can.
Why not have a look at our Sandy Ridge Friends with Mrs Macniven in the USA Blog on this site.
We have been learning about the mechanisms that make playground equipment move. We started our project with a visit to the park in the Lodge Grounds where we found lots of different ways to make things move. So far we have investigated levers, we have built our own seesaws and wheels and axles, which we used to make roundabouts. We have also carried out experiments to investigate forces.
Our classes from P4 to P7 braved the weather this morning to walk to church for their end of term services. Both services were lovely occasions with fantastic singing, drama, dance, poetry and readings. A big thank you to all the parents and friends who came along to support us. The retiral collections amounted to over £300 and this will be split between our five local charities: RNLI, Leuchie House, E Lothian Special Needs Playscheme, Friends of the Edington Hospital and Riding Therapy.
The children and staff worked incredibly hard in preparation for today and it was a lovely end to the term.
Have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year. School opens again to pupils on Tuesday 8th January 2013.
Parents, friends and helpers were invited to a coffee morning today to say thank you for the support they give to the school. Our House Captains were on the door to meet and greet our visitors and looked after them very well, serving refreshments and being very attentive hosts and hostesses.
Thank you also to Miss Hickman and her pupils for the musical entertainment. Here are some photos of the event.

12/12/12 A momentous date. 6pm-6.30 pm Law’s East Coast FM Club will be broadcasting a Christmas Special live to Mrs Macniven’s class at Sandyridge Elementary School in North Carolina. Join Primary 4 and 5 presenters in the studio.
Our Eco committee would like to show you events that have been happening within our school and we want to introduce our new committee project.
Since the start of term we have been focusing on three Eco areas within the school; Litter, Food and the Environment and Sustaining our World. Below is a slideshow showing recent events. The Fairtrade committee have been working hard within the area of `Sustaining our World’. In addition to the Fairtrade shop, which is staffed by pupils and that travels through the classes. We also have a Fairtrade tuckshop which is running on a Thursday break time. It has been run by the P7s and has been a great success.
Has your class done anything to support these three areas?

This year the Law Primary Eco committee will be focusing upon the finding out our school Global Footprint. A `global footprint’ is a measurement of the amount of land/sea that is needed to support our school. What area is needed to provide us with the resources that we use on a regular basis and how much will be needed to absorb the waste that Law Primary produces as a school. We will be focusing upon measuring the the following areas and we will try and reduce our impact upon the world.
If you are interested in viewing a video which demonstrates how other schools have achieved their aim of reducing their `global footprint’.
