Diwali at The Hub

Today we all learned about the Hindu festival of lights, Diwali.

We all completed various activities throughout the day related to Diwali.  The Green room made some clay Diwas, the Red room took part in a sensory story and the Blue room dressed up in brightly coloured Saris.

Karen from the East Lothian Arts Service came into school to help us learn about Diwali through Indian dance and everyone had great fun dressing up in beautiful colours and wearing Bindis!

You can watch a short video about the story of Diwali here and another about how people celebrate here.

Have a look at our photos!

Working at The Hub

The Primary 6’s from Primary P6/7 have been going down to the hub to help with an oral sculpture. We started going down on the 29th of April we have been going for 3 weeks so far.



Ryan Gordon, Jay Cunningham, Zoe Swan and Ailidh McManus have been given the chance to work with the infants in the Hub. It is a great opportunity. We all have our partners, Jay has been working with Danny, Zoe and Ryan G has been working with Jonathan and Ailidh has been working with Aimee. We really enjoy this and it is great fun.

Alyx Cunningham, Malayika Bambanza and Michael Mackenzie have had the opportunity to go and work with the Juniors.


At the Hub we have been making an oral sculpture that makes noises. Michael has been working with Stephen, Alyx has been working with Konor and Malayika has been working with Rachel.
It has been fun and we all worked well with our partners and Sushila has told lots of interesting things.



In the Seniors there is 5 pupils called Jonathan, Daniel, Kieran, Sativa and Amina. Ryan Donald has been working with Daniel, Jordan Spence has been working with Sativa and Kai Wood has been working with Kieran.

We are making objects to put on the oral sculpture. We have been told to use the technique called hand-on-hand. We have had to use sponges and pattering markers.

We realise how fortunate we are to work with the hub because we get to understand that the children there are not so different from us. We really enjoy it and hope we get to do it in the future.

Ceilidh 09

Fun was had by all at this year’s Ceilidh, our first at Sanderson’s Wynd.

The P6’s helped us dance and jig our way around the hall under the direction of our PE teacher, Una.  Thank you to them for keeping us all in step!

Great music was provided by Mr Webster Craig which kept us in time!

I’m sure you can see by the photos that we all had a great time!
