Forest Fun!

P1-7 had a great time popping over to our local forest this morning to collect sticks.

We  then used our sticks to work collaboratively to build skeletons. The boys and girls worked fantastically well together. Well done everyone!

Our finished product…

Stenton and Innerwick have a morning to Remember

Stenton and Innerwick partnership schools came together on Friday 9 November to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. Pupils from both schools presented aspects of their learning, including, literacy, artwork, drama, social studies and music; demonstrating an understanding of and sensitivity to the sacrifices made by previous generations, and an appreciation of the need for peace and reconciliation in our world. Families and friends of both communities joined to share this event, and enjoyed the opportunity to socialise afterwards. Much thanks goes to Rev. David Smith for hosting at Stenton parish church, as well as Rev. Suzie  Fletcher for her contribution. In particular, I’d like to express my pride and thanks to all the children and staff across both schools for their hard work in making this such a special occasion.

Message from East Lothian Council for all parents

Is your child eligible for free school meals, and if so, have you registered?

Schools receive additional funding of £1,200 from the Scottish Government for every pupil in P1 to S3 who is registered for free school meals. This is called Pupil Equity Funding, and schools use this additional money to help fund a wide range of initiatives to support achievement and provide the best possible opportunities for children’s learning. 

How do I know if my child is eligible for free school meals?

Please visit our website www.eastlothian.gov.uk  to check your eligibility and download an application form. 

Even if your child does not wish to take up the option of having a free school meal every day, we would encourage you to register so that your child’s school will receive the Pupil Equity Funding allowance to support their learning.

 

Our last few weeks …..

The children have been very generous and been out with mums and dads to buy gifts to put into shoeboxes. These have been donated to the Shoebox Appeal and will be making lots of people happy this Christmas! Shake to Wake has been getting us going in the morning and P1 and P2 have been getting to grips with some football skills on Friday mornings.

Our Art topic has been a great success and we were treated to a fantastic “Manga” lesson led by Darwin last week! We now have some lovely ideas for making Christmas decorations with natural items we have found on our recent trip to the Bughts.
