P7 had a great week learning all about skills for learning, life & work. Activities in class have all been based on the ‘World of Work’ and we’ve had a huge range of visiting speakers! Here’s a few photos from our week…

Thank you so much to all the visiting speakers! The week would not have been successful without your input.

Sportshall Athletics

A team of P6 & P7 pupils attended the East Lothian Sportshall Athletics Competition this week and came first! They had a brilliant time at the event and Mrs Silver, Classroom Assistant, said their behaviour & attitude was outstanding!

Congratulations to Kings Meadow who secured second place in the competition. Dunbar Primary & Kings Meadow now progress to the East Regional Final.


P7 Mentor Group – WWII

The P7 Mentor Group organised a Q & A session with WWII survivors.  Here’s a little bit of information about our visitors:
May – She was 10 when war broke out and had family who fought in it.
Elspeth – She was 5 when war started and went to stay with family as her parents were in India. Her family took in refugees who had lost everything in the Clydebank blitz.
Mike – Evacuated to the south coast from East London. He remembers seeing Doodlebugs flying over.
Margaret – Her dad was a doctor so saw a different kind of war.
The P7s learned so much from their visit and we are so grateful to May, Elspeth, Mike & Margaret for coming in to speak to us.  A wonderful experience for our pupils.  Thank you.

Dunbar Grammar School Session

We had a great day yesterday meeting staff from Dunbar Grammar School & learning about six figure grid references. It was all related to our current topic of World War Two.

P7 Profile Information

You will have received a letter / e-mail on Friday 29th September with information about your child’s P7 online profile.

As P7 pupils prepare to move from primary to secondary school they will be adding to their personal profile throughout the year. All pupils have been shown how to access and edit their profile. Your child now has a username and password and is ready to go!

Their homework task is to sign in (details on the letter) and discuss the profile with someone at home during the month of October.

If you have any questions about the P7 profile please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or Miss Eeles on 01368 860 997.
