The Bear On My Chair

We tuned into the Authors Live event by the Scottish Book Trust. They had Ross Collins, a Scottish author, on and he was talking about one of his books “The Bear On My Chair”. Ross is also an illustrator and he showed us how to draw one of his characters. We think our Bear pictures look great.

The IRONKIDS Scotland events have a firm focus on participation for all with age group races of between 500m and 2km. Each event will incorporate a strong family element with spectator friendly courses, free live entertainment, activities and sports taster sessions, whilst at the same time inspiring children to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.

Planting Crops

As part of our Fork to Farm topic we have been planting some crops. We have planted potatoes in the school garden. They won’t be ready until we are in P2 but we look forward to cooking with them then. We have also planted our pumpkin seeds that we saved from our Halloween pumpkin. We had a competition to see who could grow the tallest plant. We made a bar chart to record our results.

Awesome Donors Do It Again – THANK YOU


We here at the foodbank in Tranent wish to thank you and everyone at Prestonpans Infant School for your generous donation of 178 kilograms of food during the financial year 2017-2018, this equated to 107 meals.

During this time, we gave out 31,604kg of food feeding 4116 people, 1486 of whom were children.

It goes without saying that we would not be able to do this without the amazing generosity of you and our other donors together you donated an awesome 50,292kg of food last year.

So once again from all the trustees, staff and volunteers at East Lothian Foodbank thank you we couldn’t do what we do without all your support. You’ve helped to keep the Foodbank a viable project so we can carry on providing help for people in food crisis in East Lothian.
