P6 are organising a whole school Book Swap on Friday 8th June at 11 am.
The swap is in aid of children’s charity Aberlour which provides a range of services and support for vulnerable children and their families.
Pupils wishing to participate pay 50p for the book swap. Each pupil is encouraged to bring in a book (or books) they no longer wish to read and swap with a classmate. Literacy skills can be developed by sharing stories and discovering new ones.
Our school will receive a certificate and also the chance, if our name is selected, to receive a visit from an exciting children’s author.
We had a busy week last week:
On Monday most of the class went to visit the Money Museum. We got to see a roll of £800 in £20 notes and learn about old coins and early forms of money.
On Tuesday we had a visit from Musselburgh Firemen to tell us about Home Safety. We tried not to ask too many ‘What if..?’ questions.
In the afternoon we went to see Nicky Orr’s ‘Remade’ shop on the High Street. You can find a use for almost everything – keep those old scrabble pieces!
On Wednesday we wrote a set of instructions and tested them out making jam sandwiches.
On Thursday we told P3 about 2D Shapes and we all became Shape Detectives in our playground. Nathan C and Thomas represented the Musselburgh Cluster this afternoon at Little and Large Cookery Competition. Although they didn’t win overall, they did extremely well and made some delicious food!
On Friday Fraser taught us Rugby Rounders!
On Wednesday 18th April, to mark 100 days until the London 2012 Olympics start, we held an Olympics Quiz. Anne Gold and her daughter Lucy, a former pupil, organised this for us. It was good fun and the winners all got to have a tea party with paralympian Blair Glynn. Blair, one of Lloyds Local Heroes and from East Lothian, has been selected to represent Team GB at football. We wish you the best of luck Blair – you have a new set of fans who will be cheering you on! Thanks to Anne and Lucy for making this a special day.
Thank you to all the parents and gran who visited our class this week. It was great to have you and we hope you enjoyed helping us with our activities. A few of you said how quickly the time had flown.
Friday was a very sad day in P6 as our fabulous friend and star footballer Rachel left our school. We had a fun football match in the morning and a farewell party afterwards with Amy’s home baking – yummy! Rachel, we wish you all the best of luck in your new school and remember to keep in touch with us.
It’s been a busy first term in 2012 so we hope everyone enjoys the holiday break.
In Primary 6 we have been very busy. We have been learning about Burke & Hare and we have been working on a Burke & Hare drama show with Charades Theatre Company. We made Scottish Thistles for Rabbie Burns day and they are looking great – we also wrote about our favourite piece of Scotland. We love drama so we have little groups and every time we do drama, we get into them. French with Mrs mcCallum is really fun and cool. That’s all we’ve been doing and we’ll keep you up to date. Bye from P6. Liam and Thomas.
