Due to adverse weather conditions, we regret that the Sanderson’s Wynd Christmas Winter Market is cancelled. We apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause.
Due to the continuing severe weather conditions, it has been confirmed that ALL East Lothian schools will remain closed to pupils on Wednesday 1 December. Major efforts to open up safe access routes to schools will continue during the course of tomorrow (Wednesday). East Lothian Council appreciates that these closures are causing major inconvenience to parents and carers. However, every effort is being made to re-open schools in the face of severe weather conditions and transport difficulties.
Further updates for this week will be added here in due course with information also being available on Radio Forth.

Although many pupils said they didn’t like brown bread, in a class blind tasting experiment, we discovered that most children couldn’t tell the difference between white and brown bread!
Mrs Cockburn visited P4T and taught us how to sign lots of words to help us communicate with the Hub children. We enjoyed trying signalong, and have a booklet in the classroom with pictures of these signs to help us remember them. Mrs Cockburn also showed us objects of reference which the pupils can see or feel to let them know what they will be doing next in their day. She asked us to help by making fans. This object of reference can be used to wave against a pupil’s cheek to feel like wind. This will let Hub children know that they will be going outside. P4T were happy to take on this challenge, and as you can see from the photo, the class made very colourful fans which are now being used in the Hub.
