Well done to all of the children who have been working hard in P7T! I can’t believe that it is already the September holiday!
We started off by learning about the Bermuda Triangle, our pupil choice topic. This was very engaging for all of the children who used their detective skills to find out and to propose some theories. Some children were quite active in their imaginations. It was wonderful to read the stories that all of the children wrote.
We have now moved on to investigating myths. We are learning about the different civilisations that created these myths. In the next few weeks, we will be writing our own myth and sharing this learning with other.
We have had some school trips including one to the Book Festival and one to the lagoons. We enjoyed these immensely and look forward to more trips.
All of the children have their google accounts and have an invite to google classroom. I look forward to seeing some posts on the site!

P7 Charities and Events Leaders
Come along to our welcome meeting on Monday 9th September, at 7pm. This is a great opportunity to meet other parents, meet your child’s teacher, and have a look at what they’ve been working on. Hope to see you there!
We are an East Lothian based, not for profit organisation that delivers adventurous outdoor activities, in the School Holidays, for children aged 8 to 14. We run these activity programmes in partnership with East Lothian Council’s Outdoor Learning Service.
Activities range from things such as kayaking, canoeing and rock climbing to coasteering, trail cycling and bushcraft. These activities offer the opportunity for children to build confidence, self esteem and resilience. These days also offer a great social setting for young people and a chance to interact with peers in different settings.
We also run an ASN Adventurous Activities provision for children with additional support needs, and their families – this is funded by ELC and enables access to our activities for children who struggle to access mainstream activities. These free sessions run fortnightly at the weekend. More information on this can be found at www.venturingout.org.uk/asn-provision
Some of our pupils were interviewed by the BBC after the Book Festival recently.

Rise in Asthma Attacks
Did you know there is a rise in Asthma Attacks in August when pupils go back to school after their summer holidays?
Each year we see an increase in asthma attacks in children when they return to school which often result in admission to hospital.
Check out our top tips to try and avoid this happening.
Remember, asthma attacks are serious and you need to get help day or night if your child is not responding to their blue inhaler.
We are excited to see all the boys and girls back to school on
Wednesday 14th August. All school classes begin at 8.50am.
We are excited for the boys and girl to see their new classes.
