Message from Mrs Davies

Good Morning,
We hope that everyone has a lovely long weekend. If you are looking for something to keep the family busy then have a look on Google Classrooms where you will find everything you need to make a fun family movie night from pop corn holders to movie posters. Our film choice for this weeks family learning task is Paddington 2 and is available for free on BBC Iplayer until 11am on Sunday.

In other news our highly anticipated P4-7 St Martin’s Talent Show has been launched, highlighting the real heroes of St Martin’s – our pupils! Head over to Google Classroom, https://twitter.com/stmartinsrcps or http://edubuzz.orr/stmartins to watch, you definitely won’t be disappointed. We would also through this like to highlight the work of local heroes and help raise funds for Mary’s Meals and St Vincent de Paul. Every little raised will make a huge difference and can be donated via the links on our school Twitter page and School Website.
We look forward to being back with you all on Monday.
From All at St Martin’s.

VE Day Commemoration

VE Day commemoration

Friday 8 May marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Following public consultation it was designated as an additional day’s holiday in East Lothian recognising families’ desire to commemorate this historic occasion. While the current Covid restrictions mean that gatherings or services are not possible, there are still ways to mark the occasion in a safe and socially distanced way.

The Royal British Legion has published a timetable of activities for the day itself where the nation can commemorate VE Day within the current guidelines including a 2 minute silence at 11am and a doorstep ‘Toast to the Nation’ at 3pm.

PoppyScotland’s website has some great ideas and resources if families wish to talk to their children about VE Day or undertake any learning as part of it.
