Law Primary entered two P7 teams into the East Lothian schools’ basketball tournament held on Tuesday 3rd March at Meadowmill. Both teams did extremely well and won both their groups. In the play-offs for 1st and 2nd place Gullane and Law 2 emerged as the overall winners and now go on to represent East Lothian in the Lothian Schools’ final.
The standard of basketball throughout the tournament was very high and there was a great atmosphere. Well done to all the teams who took part and thank you to Gordon MacKenzie for organising a successful tournament.
Law 1 – Anakin, Angus, Anna, Amelia, Fergus, Nikita, Pippa, Rebecca, Stuart, Tom
Law 2 – Alyth, Cameron, Felix, Finlay, Isaac, Jennifer, Jess, Michael, Murray, Rosie
I’ve uploaded a powerpoint from the TES website by Mike Ennington that will give you some ideas for Tudor Costumes for the musical.

On Thursday 28th November the P7s had their first ever Christmas Transition ceilidh. It was really fun and there were loads of people there. First we danced to the Gay Gordons, then one in threes called the Britannia Two-step. Half way through we got crisps and juice or water and sat in tables of eight with pupils from other schools like Athelstaneford, Dirleton, Aberlady and Gullane. Mrs Rodger the High School head teacher was there as well as Mr Jeffries, Mrs Neri and the band called Clappy Doo.

Over 3 separate days in September and October most of P7 went Coasteering with our Outdoor Education specialist, Martyn Pegg.
Read what some of us had to say:
I really enjoyed the coasteering because I love the water and the jumping off rocks was really fun. It was an all-around good experience. Sam F
I thought coasteering so much fun we had to jump into rock pools, swim down a long thin channel and swim under a rock arch way. Before I did coasteering, I was really nervous and didn’t want to do it but then I did it and I loved it I would definitely do it again. Fiona
It was one of the best experiences of my life so far! Everyone in my group had fun and it was great to experience the life of sea creatures and how they survive. Heather
I really enjoyed coasteering it was one of the best things I’ve done. I would love to do it again it was really fun. Jack R
It was a VERY fun activity because you had to think at all times for different routes in case one was too dangerous. Jedd
I found the coasteering really fun it was cool jumping into the water in both ways and I wish I could do it again. Coasteering was the best trip yet and I really enjoyed it. Peter
Coasteering was extremely fun! We learnt how certain animals live in those conditions on the rocks. It is really slippery at parts but the whole group enjoyed it immensely. The hardest part was putting on the wetsuits and taking them off. It was the greatest experience. Sarah
Coasteering was the best trip I’ve done so far. All though it was raining I still loved it. Scott B
Mike Russell, MSP for Education and Lifelong Learning was at North Berwick Seabird Centre on 12th September to meet five members of the Wildlife Club from Law Primary and Jenny McAllister, the Wildlife Club teacher. He was there to congratulate Jenny for winning the finals of the Scottish Teacher of the Year awards. Everyone went down to the beach to hunt for crabs and other sea creatures and had photos taken.

The Primary 7s are well on their way to mastering cursive writing – well done for all your efforts!
These past couple of weeks we have been finding lots of interesting information about the Scottish Parliament. On Tuesday 22nd January we will enjoy a dynamic lesson with a Scottish Parliament Outreach visitor. 7C are in the process of writing to our MSP Iain Gray in the hope that he might come in for a visit and answer some of our questions about the work of an MSP.

Well done to all the Primary 7s who held a fantastic Christmas Fair this morning. Thank you for all your beautiful baking – always a winner – and for all the very successful stalls. The younger children in the school enjoyed it so much and I know that all the teachers were very impressed with you too. A lot of the money has still to be counted but so far, you’ve raised well over £700 – very well done!!
As the nation gets ready to be gripped by excitement of the Paralympics, the P7s have had a fantastic time this week enjoying so many different sports and activities. Thank you to Mrs Baillie for organising everything and everybody! And a big thank you as well to all the parent helpers without whom it wouldn’t have been possible to get out and about.
P7, what have you most enjoyed about your week?
The week beginning 20th August is Health Week (many thanks to Mrs Baillie for organising everything!). Please come to school in your joggers. Polo shirts and school sweatshirts are still to be worn, as usual. We’ll be out of school on Monday for bowling (wear trainers please) and on Thursday for golf (sunshine on order!). Let’s all make an effort to have healthy snacks next week!
