Nursery enrolment: Enrol your child by 6 March 2020

Families with a child born between 1 March 2017 and 28 February 2018 are being encouraged to enrol their child in nursery before 6 March 2020 for 2020/21.

Older children, or those who have not yet registered for an early learning and childcare place, should also register by this date.

To register for a place:
• Visit www.eastlothian.gov.uk/nurseryenrolment and find out about the different options available in council nursery settings from August 2020.
• Download a nursery registration form from the website.
• Complete the form and take it to your preferred (first) choice nursery. You should also take your child’s birth certificate.
• If you are choosing a blend of more than one provider, apply to your council nursery first and then speak to your funded provider – private nursery, childminder or community group – about what hours you would like from them.
• Make sure your application is in before 6 March 2020. Applications will still be accepted after this date, but they will not be considered in the first allocation process. Please get in touch with the Early Years and Childcare team if you have any questions or you can’t register by 6 March 2020.

P4-7 Sky Academy Trip

On Tuesday 1st of October P4-7 went on a trip to Sky Academy Studios, we watched an introduction for what we would be doing .We were set the task of making a short trailer for a film where someone had lost their wallet, we were put into three teams/groups. In my team there was: me ,Poppy, Katie ,Reece ,Dair and Angus.

Katie was the actress, Poppy was the producer, Reece was the director, Dair was the editor, Angus was the special effects and I was the cinematographer .

After that we got to watch them all in a special cinema room. They were all really good . When we had done all that, the teacher was handed some USB wrist bands. We got to keep the lanyards as well, we had our lunch then went home.

6/7 Rugby training

For the last few weeks primary 6 and 7 have been having Michael from Ross High to do rugby with us. The first week we were getting taught how to use the tags and belts  so we put on the Velcro belts  and we put the Velcro tags on and we had a game of sharks and fishes. The rules are the fish is running with the ball and the shark is trying to get the tags. Then we were tackling the tackle bags.

 

This week we were doing a passing game and we had to be in a space and the first team to get five passes got a point and then we did a Velcro game again.

 

 

I think this is great fun because I like playing it with my friends.

update on show

This week we have been practising our lines and our songs, they are coming on very well. On Mondays  P3/4 go first to music and then art, P5/6/7 go to art first and then we go to music. We at least do 1 practice per day and we get advice from the adults about our singing and lines .I am doing fire man 2 and Andy from scene 3. I am enjoying my parts because I didn’t want too big a part because I would have a lot to remember but I didn’t want too little a part because I would have  a too easy  part. I think other people in my class have a good part just like me they are good at learning their  parts they have just the same advantage as me so I hope they do well.

I hope a lot of people come to the show.

Visit from Linzie Nicol

On Monday 28th of may  we had a visit from Linzie Nicol . She is Mrs Nicol’s sister-in-law and Mr Nicol’s sister.

She came because her face looks slightly different and she is part of the Changing Faces charity and came in to do a talk to our class about how other people look different even though they are the same and they can do the same things.

I learned that faces are just another part on your body it does not matter what they look like they are just the same.
