Hello to Finn in Norway.

Hi Finn,

Today we have been doing some Interior Design. We are using analogous colours to create a colour scheme for a bedroom or living room. We have been learning about colour theory and have also painted some landscapes using complementary colours with different tints, shades and tones.

We have also been to Lagganlia and had so much fun we made a poem about it. You can read it when you come back.

It has been snowing a little bit here today, but not enough to sledge on unfortunately. Yesterday we did circuits and cricket ball throwing outside and nearly froze it was so cold!

We will blog again soon, please leave us a message too!

Hi to Finn in Norway!

The last couple of weeks have been hecitc here. We have been busy finishing our 500 word stories for the Radio 2 competition, as well as writing some fantastic poems. We have been very creative too, mixing shades, tints and tones of paint to create colour wheels and contrasting landscape paintings.

We are starting to build up our strength, speed and stamina in P.E with some athletics. Some of the class have already improved greatly in their times for the 1km and i’m sure will continue to do so.

We’ve had a performance of ‘The Journey’ today, which was an interactive piece of drama. We were reminded of the importance of road safety measures when on your bike and when crossing the road.

We hope you are all having a wonderful time in Norway and look forward to hearing from you!

Well done P7

It has been a fabulous star-studded week in P7 with all pupils performing five spectacular shows of this year’s side-splitting musical, `Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits’. It has been a wonderful experience for everyone involved and we would like to thank all the people who have helped us. Special thanks to Mr Walker our janitor, Mrs Broadley our music specialist and to Mr Connell our art specialist for all their hard work and contribution.

P7 Elections

This term we have been learning about the Scottish parliament and the democratic election process. We have learned about the workings of the Scottish parliament and following a visit from Iain Gray, we also learned about the day-to-day duties of an MSP.
In recent weeks we have formed ‘families’ in our local community and we have investigated the social issues and community concerns within East Lothian. Five MSP candidates were selected to form an election campaign. The candidates canvased the `families’ to find out their needs which formed the basis for their election campaign speeches. Yesterday the P7 MSP candidates gave their speeches and the rest of the year stage voted for the candidate who promised to address the particular needs of their ‘families’. The winning candidate was Keira who represented the `Blue Thistles’ party.

Transition Ceilidh!

The P7s will be heading off to the High School on Thursday at 6.30pm for the Transition Ceilidh. All the cluster schools’ P7s will be there for some social dancing and a chance to meet people from other schools. Last year’s event was great fun and we are looking forward to it! We don’t usually get to meet up with the other schools very much so it will be a good opportunity to make some new friends.

P7 Transition Ceilidh

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.

MSP at North Berwick Beach!

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.
