P3A worked in their Co-operative Learning groups to write some comments for our blog.

In Maths we have been learning about measuring. In PE we have been learning how to throw. In Literacy we have been learning about writing and spelling. In assembly we were learning about team work.

Welcome to P4A

We have had a really busy start to the year.

In Maths we have been adding ten and multiples of 10. We have also been rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. We have played lots of games to help us learn.

We have been writing diary entries and creating eye catching posters to advertise castles and houses in East Lothian for tourists.

In Social Subjects we have been learning about East Lothian. We have been finding out what jobs people did in the coal mines. If we were alive in the 1800s we would not be at school but would probably be trappers in a mine. We are all looking forward to our trip to the Mining Museum next week.

Thank you for reading and keep checking back for regular updates.



Butterfly World!

In science, P1d have been learning about mini beasts and we enjoyed visiting Butterfly World yesterday. We were learning about the exotic butterflies and saw caterpillars and beautiful butterflies in the indoor tropical rainforest. We enjoyed handling a snake, tarantula and millipede.
‘Millie the millipede tickled my hand when she walked over it’ (Lily)
‘the tarantula was so hairy and had 8 legs’ (Sarah)
‘I got to hold the snake and it was so slippery’ (Ollie)
‘We had to pretend to be a tree when we held the snake’ (Scott)
 Take a look at some of us handling the different animals!

P5B Weekly Blog


We watched Mark’s story about him getting scammed. His friend got a new game called Deal or Death 2 but a week later it needed an update so he downloaded an update and it said ‘just click here and Deal or Death 2 will update’. So Mark clicked it and it said ‘you have updated Deal or Death 2 and it said ‘click here to get Deal or Death 3’. Mark was shocked. Deal or Death 3 shouldn’t be out by Christmas. So he clicked it and it said buy Deal or Death 3 for only £19.99 so Mark went and got his mum’s credit card and got Deal or Death 3 but when he clicked on it the game didn’t arrive. So he went to see his mum and she was on the phone talking to the police. Mark had spent £500. His mum was upset and angry. We learned we shouldn’t click on things we don’t know what they are on the internet or use a credit card without permission.
