Badminton for P4

Yesterday all of P4 went to Ross High School for a badminton festival.  They were joined by P4 pupils from Ormiston and Saltoun primary schools.

A fun time was had by all.

“Highland Games” for P3/4 and P4/5

As a start to our Scots Week P3/4 and P4/5 had our own mini highland games.  Unfortunately the weather put paid to our original plans.  However, undeterred, we carried on in the hall.

Welly Hurling was first and the 4 winners can be seen in the photo below.  This was followed by a keenly fought tug-of-war competition between the boys and the girls, won by the girls.

East Lothian Challenge

The pictures below have all been taken in East Lothian. How many of them can you identify?

There will be a house point for anyone who correctly identifies all 15. Entries to Mr. Kingsbury by the end of Scots Week (28th January).

Didn’t they do well?

P3/4 and P4/5 entertained the whole school with a performance on Wednesday followed by 2 sell-out performances for parents and friends yesterday.  I could go on for ages about the stars of the show, but there’s far too many – 47 actually!!

Well done to all, especially Scrooge, and a massive thank you to everyone who helped with costumes etc.

Scrooge! A Ghost of a Chance

P3/4 and P4/5 will be presenting “Scrooge! A Ghost of a Chance” on Thursday 16th December at 2pm and 7pm.

Parents/Guardians of cast members have already had a chance to order tickets.  If your child is in the show and you have not requested your tickets, please contact the school a.s.a.p.

The remaining tickets will be available to all parents on a first-come-first-served basis from Monday morning.

We Need Your Help

As you will all know, P3/4 and P4/5 are presenting ‘Scrooge! A Ghost of a Chance’ on 16th December.

Having lost the whole of this week, we now have very little time left to sort out costumes for the 47 children taking part.  This is where you can help.

We especially need help with clothing a large number of Victorians – Gentlemen, Ladies and those not so fortunate.  If anyone can help with waistcoats, jackets, shirts, cravats, non-denim trousers, top hats, cloth caps, party dresses, not-so-smart dresses, aprons, dressing gown & night cap for Scrooge etc. all contributions will be gratefully received by Mr Kingsbury, Mrs Elder or Mrs Rodger (see below for examples).

THANK YOU.

P.S. P3/4 & P4/5 Remember to learn the words of the songs (see earlier post)

Bah Humbug!!

Calling all P3/4 and P4/5 pupils…..

In true Scrooge fashion I am the bearer of bad news – well, not really bad. Whilst I’m sure you’re all having tremendous fun in the snow, this is an ideal opportunity for you all to

LEARN THE WORDS
OF THE SONGS

especially ‘Scrooge, Scrooge’ and the two versions of ‘A Ghost of a Chance’.
