BAT EVENT

For those people who have a ticket for the bat event on Friday we are going to meet in the school grounds at 8.30pm. We probably won’t be able to see bats until after 9pm so the rangers will do a few activities with us before we go out. This event, at the request of the school, is being run by the East Lothian ranger service. As with all their bat events it is important to know that the accompanying adults are responsible for the children in their care, not the rangers or any school staff present. The rangers have also asked that each family bring a torch with them and to have suitable footwear and clothing. This should be a great night and a late night! See you at 8.30pm.

Due to the nature of the event we had to limit the number of tickets sold to 45.  I know this caused disapointment for some families, be assured we did try  to hold 2 events this session.  The rangers have said that they could offer another session in September, which we can hopefully arrange.

Scale Drawings

We have been learning about scale in a very real context. The Eco Committee need to know the size of the area where we intend to plant the wild flower meadow so the correct amount of seedlings can be bought. We are mapping our schools grounds very accurately using scale drawings and we will be learning about area to give an accurate answer. We discussed proffesions and other contexts where we need to use the skill of scale drawings. I told the class about the scale drawings I did of their classroom during the summer holidays so I could decide the best use of furniture and space in their room.
