Christmas at St Mary’s

The last few weeks have been very busy at St Mary’s. The hampers you kindly donated items to, have been delivered to nursing homes in Haddington. The children’s hampers this year were won by Charlie Smith, Hannah Hogg, Calum Rettie and Georgina Doctor.
Our Christmas concert at Knox Academy was a great success. The boys and girls did us proud as usual, their voices filling the large hall superbly.
We finished the term by holding our Christmas parties, a great way to round everything up.
We would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas time.




Cinderella

Recently Primary 5/6 have been doing activities around the story of Cinderella. In our Literacy and English, we looked at using similes to describe the characters in Cinderella, and then wrote short pantomime sketches around the story, (“OH YES WE DID!”) In I.T we looked at the work of Lauren Child, an author of many books for children. She uses a mixture of drawings, real photos and textures to illustrate her stories, so our challenge was to create a scene from Cinderella in the style of Lauren Child.
You can read about how she creates her illustrations here:
