Impressionist Adventures at the John Gray Centre

Recently P2/3 and P4/5 visited the John Gray centre to take part in a workshop called ‘Impressionist Adventure.’
They looked at examples of landscapes by Claude Monet and created their own landscapes of East Lothian using
the same techniques. They also learned about how people lived and worked in East Lothian in the past.

Thanks to Ola for offering these free workshops to our school. Here is a link to see our P2/3 pupils in action!

Merry Christmas Everyone

Thanks to all the parents and families who came to be a part of our Christmas service. The pupils had been working hard to learn lots of songs, and preparing special performances with boom-whackers (P4/5) and ukuleles (P5-7). Our school brass band has reformed and made a debut performance in our assembly – we are looking forward to more performances in the future! We hope you enjoyed our assembly and that you have a relaxing Christmas holiday so that you can come back to school raring to go in 2015!

Our Primary 4-7 pupils performed an amazing version of Cinderella Rockafella this week. The school is so proud of them.  Thanks to the staff and parents who made this possible and thank you for the donation of £96.69 that will be used to buy resources for outdoor learning.

Look at our wonderful pictures of the show…

Pop Art

Pop Art on PhotoPeach

In golden time today P1-4 worked on their own and in groups to create fantastic abstract eye art! We developed drawing and painting skills such as blending oil pastels and mixing tints and tones of paint and experimented with the wax resist technique. We enjoyed painting and singing to our favourite pop tunes and some break dancing (from the boys) in the last 5 minutes! Check out our creative little artists and our dance moves too!!!
