Jackie Crookston – local heroine

This morning we went to visit the Jackie Crookston Memorial Statue.  It reminds us of the Tranent Massacre in 1797.  This is when Jackie Crookston led a small army against the government.  They wanted to stop people being forced to fight in the army.  Unfortunatley Jackie Crookston died when fighting.

Watch Our Garden Grow!

Primary 1 are still enjoying looking after their seeds.  We need to make sure they have plenty of water over the weekend.  We were suprised to see how tall they were after a few days holiday!

“Our plant is growing very well.  The stem is 6cm long.”

Today, Primary 1 saw some shoots growing from their seeds.

I wonder how much taller they will be next week?

From all the pupils in Primary 1.
