PTS Football kicks off in Tranent!

Sandersons Wynd1

For the first time ever school football within the Tranent Cluster will now take place after-school on various occasions throughout the year, with the first of these events taking place at Forresters Park 3G on Wednesday 26th November.

With 4 schools involved in 6 matches, there were some incredible games on display. Every game played was run from one end of the pitch to the other and there were also some brilliant goals to be seen. Young Cameron Higgins from Windygoul Primary got the pick of the bunch in a convincing win over St Martins. His powerful “wind-assisted” strike from inside his own half caught out the St Martins goalkeeper and nestled neatly in the bottom corner of the goal prompting massive celebrations from the players…and their parents!

Full match results are listed below;

St Martins RC                     0 v 4       Windygoul (1)

Sandersons Wynd           1 v 3       Ormiston

Windygoul (2)                    6 v 1       St Martins

Sandersons Wynd           0 v 3       Windygoul (1)

St Martins RC                     1 v 2       Ormiston

Windygoul (2)                    4 v 1       Sandersons Wynd

All of these teams are training on a weekly basis and with another event due to be scheduled for after the Christmas Break, the teams have assured their coaches they will be working hard in training to improve for the next bout!

The Hub Summer Event

On Monday 29th June the Hub held their Summer Event for parents and carers.  The theme was water and the children had worked hard practising their songs and preparing their costumes.  We were lucky with the weather and our P7 buddies came along to sing with us too. We had great fun singing together and afterwards parents and carers stayed for refreshments.


P5P thoughts on today’s Netball Tournament

The netball tournament today was very interesting  and was very well played and fair. In todays netball match adults were playing against children . it was challenging because the kids were passing to the adults and the adults were passing to the kids what was even harder was some KIDS were against ADULTS! :)we sat with the hub and the hub enjoyed it cause they were all smiling. The teachers were  competitive and over the top. When we are older it can inspire us to do teamwork sports.

Children’s University

CUWe were lucky to have a visit from Callum Maguire from The Children’s University come to assembly today to talk to us about the exciting opportunities that are available to all pupils at Sanderson’s Wynd Primary School.  A letter was sent home with all pupils today to explain a little more about the Children’s University and there is now a quick link to all CU news on our school website under the ‘Parent Zone’ tab at the top right of the menu bar.   A copy of the letter and the permission slip is available by following the link on the Parent Zone tab.

Ross Rocks Reading Launch

Last Tuesday Primary 4P was delighted to represent Sanderson’s Wynd at the primary launch of Ross Rocks Reading. The event, which took place at Ross High, was filmed and streamed live into classrooms across East Lothian. There were presentations on a range of favourite books from Eion Colfer’s The Legend of Spud Murphy to Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar to Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Primary 4P gave  a presentation about The BFG, by Roald Dahl, which is being read by all of Primary 4 just now. They presented an acrostic poem, showed a book trailer and read a book review, written by Ben and Fergus.

Sanderson’s Wynd will be hosting a whole school Ross Rocks Reading launch very soon. We will be looking for parents, carers and other community members who would like to share their love of reading with us so check back here for details on how to get involved or email Mrs Pearce at if you would like to help out.

The talent at Sanderson’s Wynd Primary School has been outstanding. Who would have guessed that primary 1-7 had such amazing voices and such groovy moves? Some hidden talents are also going to be present this evening in the form of the SWPS staff act! Don’t forget we have our very own Mr Nasty in our panel of judges. Good luck to all the acts taking part this evening and thank you to everyone who has been involved in helping create such a fantastic show.
