The Number 124 Bus

The pupils have been rehearsing their performance of a short and sweet play about East Lothian called “The 124 Bus”.

The children devised the script, setting and roles themselves – creating a 3 minute invitation to enjoy the sites of East Lothian with them.

In ICT lessons they searched for images of East Lothian to be used as a backdrop to the performance. To do this they used their ever improving skills with the search engine Google.

In Drama they were given specialist input from school Drama Teacher Mrs Gammie – with props, ideas, rehearsalĀ spaceĀ and feedback much appreciated!

In Maths we used the 124 bus timetable to practise our skills using time and money.

In Social Studies we found out about the Battle of Prestonpans and the story of the creation of the St Andrew’s Cross at Athelstaneford.

The performance will be undertaken as part of the On Our Doorstep project on May 22nd 2008. Please feel free to take three or four minutes out of your schedule at Open Afternoon to come and see these wonderful pupils perform a completely original piece of drama!
