We are working to become a Right Respecting School. http://www.unicef.org.uk/rrsa

As part of this journey we have been working in class on understanding the differences between needs and wants and that with every right that we have comes a responsibility.

We are about to embark on a whole school project focusing on the work of ‘Water Aid’ http://www.wateraid.org/uk/¬†throughout the world.

Each class will look at the impact that ‘Water Aid’ has had and is having on a specific country.

Nursery: simple needs of Water

P1: Bangladesh

P2: Pakistan

P3: India

P4: Malawi

P5: Ethiopia

P6: Haiti

P7: Afghanistan

At home pupils may wish to look at the weblinks included in this post to help with their research.

Well done to all pupils for their kind and caring attitude to other children throughout the world.

We look forward to seeing each classes ‘Showcase of Learning’ before the Easter Holidays.

 

 

Welcome back!

Welcome back to all the staff and pupils of St. Martin’s. The sun has been shining for us this week and so it has been a great chance for everyone to enjoy the new playground equipment that was installed during the summer holidays. All the pupils are looking very smart in their new school uniforms. I’m sure that this year everyone is going to try their very best to be:

  • successful learners
  • confident individuals
  • responsible citizens
  • effective contributors

Have a great year everyone!

 

All the Pantos!!!!

Last week, on Thursday, 15 December, the whole school had a panto afternoon. The Nursery, Primary 1, Primary 2 and Primary 3 enjoyed a production of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ in the the school hall. Some bits were scary but it was fun all the same.
Primary 4 and 5 travelled to the Brunton Theatre in Musselburgh to see ‘Aladdin’. It was very funny and we even saw two of the Primary 4 boys on stage dancing. They were really good!
Primary 6 and 7 went to the King’s Theatre in Edinburgh to see ‘Cinderella’. Both classes had a great time and were amazed at the fantastic costumes and scenery.
Wonder what the panto will be next year?

Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas to everyone at St. Martin’s. Have a lovely holiday and I hope you all get the present you ask for. Be kind to your families and friends and try to be helpful at this very busy time of the year. On Christmas Day try to say a prayer to the Baby Jesus to help those people who may be feeling sad or lonely.
See you all in January. Happy New Year 2012!!!! From Mrs Sharp X
