If there is a fire we know that you need to call 999 and ask for the fire service. This week we were visited by a fire officer from Musselburgh fire station. Fire Officer Norris explained some of the dangers of fire to us. We watched a short film about a firefly who wanted to be brighter so she lit a match but she ended up burning herself. We learned that it is not safe to play with matches. Fire Officer Norris also told us what we should do if we ever caught fire. We must STOP, DROP and ROLL and keep rolling until the fire is out. Fire Officer Norris has organised for us to visit Musselburgh Fire Station to look at the fire engine, talk to the fire officers and maybe we will get a shot of the fire hose. We are looking forward to our visit.

It’s a George Thing
P1/2 had the chance to take part in an East Lothian Music workshop called “Notes on a Story”. Gordon, the leader, read us the story of “It’s a George Thing”. It’s a story about friendship. George, a zebra, loves to dance but he is not as good at doing the things his friends do. The story explores how friends stick by each other and help each other. We made up small chants for each character in the story then made music for each chant. We had the opportunity to use lots of different instruments to create this music – guitars, glockenspiels, drums, bells etc. Some of us had never had the opportunity to use these instruments – particularly the guitars. It was very exciting seeing what sounds we could make with the instruments. We worked in teams to create music for the story and some pupils had the chance to conduct the music as the story was read. We had great fun.

Eco Week – Fun at the beach
The sun was shining and the sand was calling us – so off we all went to the beach for some great transient art. We gathered shells and stones and anything else of interest and used them to make lots of fun pictures.

St Patrick’s Day
On Friday 15th March P1/2 had great fun celebrating St Patrick’s day with Joseph. Joseph brought in some of the things he and his family display in their house on St Patrick’s day. There was bunting, a flag and a leprechaun. In class we listened to Irish music and Kaylynn showed us some Irish dancing which we all had fun trying to copy. Then we all made our very own leprechaun mask. Can you find the real Irish leprechaun?
Primary 1/2 have been busy making extra special surprises for their mums. Have a look at our beautiful flower baskets and our lovely Mother’s Day poems.

P1/2 had the opportunity to learn some karate skills at a recent taster session. We had great fun as you will see from the photos. Ben already goes to karate classes and showed us some of his karate punches and kicks. He was very good.
In literacy we have been practising our common words in a very unusual way. Have a look at us writing in shaving foam. It was a bit messy but a lot of fun.
As part of ourScotlandtopic we have been making a variety of Scottish foods. Here we are making shortbread with Mrs Elgin. Mrs Elgin explained that to make shortbread we don’t need scales just a little cup. We measured in 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of cornflour, 1 cup of icing sugar and a pack of butter. Then we rubbed it in until it all stuck together. After it was cooked we all tasted it. It was delicious.
Mrs Armitage and her bike
Primary 1/2 had the opportunity to work with a drama specialist. We have been building the story of Mrs Armitage and her bike. Mrs Armitage is a really funny lady who likes to add lots of very useful things to her bike. We had lots of fun. Have a look at us in drama.
We had a fantastic time at our primary 1 and Primary 2 Christmas parties. There were lots of games to play and lovely snacks and we had a special visit from Santa who gave each of us an early Christmas present. Here are some photos from our party.
Nativity / Children of the World
Primary 1/2 have been learning all about the nativity and have been listening to stories about the birth of Jesus. We were able to choose what person we wanted to be in our nativity area and some of us were the nativity characters for the school church service.
We also took part in the infant Christmas nativity show “Children of the World”. The show told about how other countries celebrate Christmas and the birth of Jesus. Our class sang aboutIrelandand we made hats with green shamrocks on them. Maciej P, Maciej K and Oliwier representedPoland. We all enjoyed singing the Polish song and learning the Polish words. Some of the primary 1 children were the characters from the nativity and looked beautiful in their costumes.We all choose a costume to have our photos taken. Here we are in our nativity outfits.
Primary 2 are enjoying their reading buddy sessions every Thursday afternoon with their Primary 7 big buddies. Here are some photos of the big and wee buddies during the reading buddy sessions.
P1/2 visit a Viking Museum
Today we stepped back in time to the age of the Vikings when we visited the P5 Viking Museum. Firstly we were given some very informative Viking facts whilst we were waiting on the museum opening. We were then lead around the museum by our tour guides who explained what was at each exhibit. We were shown Viking long ships, shields and daggers. We saw Viking people and learned about important Viking Gods. We played Viking games, saw a video about the Vikings crossing to Britain, we heard about Viking food, looked at the beautiful Viking bowls and jewellery, did some Viking trading and read Viking runes. It was great fun and we learned a lot. Thank you very much primary 5.
Here are some pictures of the classroom museum!
We have been working really hard at home with our family on our lighthouse project. We know that lighthouses are for boats so they know where the rocks are in the dark and during the day. Lighthouses are usually striped with a colour and white. The white helps the lighthouse be seen at night and the colour is so it is seen during the day. We each had a chance to talk about our lighthouse and explain how we made it. Here we are with our lighthouses.
The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch
We have been learning about The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch. We worked together to write out own version of the story using Powerpoint. We added in pictures to our story so we were the authors and the illustrators. We hope you enjoy our story.
Pupils in primary 1/2 have been learning all about life on and under the sea. On Friday 23rd September the class presented a fantastic assembly identifying lots of animals which live under the sea and told the story of The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch. Well done all of you.
We would not be surprised if you hadn’t seen primary 1/2 in their classroom all week. We have been so busy keeping healthy. We have had loads of exciting activities to try from Enjoy-a-ball to Irish dancing, Jamming Fitness to Healthy Hearts, Healthy Eating to Outdoor Adventures, Veg Invasion to Heart start, making sandwiches to Zumba , Tae-kwon-do to tasting soup and breads and healthy music to circus skills. We have had a great week and are all super healthy. Take a look at us being healthy.
