We have been taking part in a whole lot of sports over the last few weeks. Here is a snapshot!!


Our Hockey team at the Regional Hockey Finals in Penicuik.      P4 and 5 Rugby Festival at Bleachfield.


On Tuesday 25th May our P7 hockey team travelled to Penicuik for the Scottish Schools Regional Hockey Championship.  Our team played very well and came fourth in the competition.  Well done, team!

This term P4 and 5 have been learning how to play  touch rugby. Our teacher is called Fergus and he comes from South Africa. To start with we played Sharks  and Fishes and then we moved on to tag rugby. This week we played in a Festival with all our P4 and 5 pupils.


On Wednesdays our P4 pupils go to Haddington to learn how to swim. Our swimming teacher is called  Mrs Anderson and she sometimes puts  things in the water with numbers on them. We have to get as many as we can and add up our scores. The person with the highest number is  the winner.

I really like swimming. It is a lot of fun.




 Shell  Science workshop

On Wednesday 26th May P3 pupils had a visit from Pat who works for Shell Education . We were making a band roller. To start with we looked at a wind up clock motor and then we looked at a few power storing toys. We were given 2 discs, 4 pieces of wood, an elastic  band or two, a bead, a washer and two different  lengths of rod. Angus D was the  first one to find out how it worked. You could use it as a helicopter,car, carousel  and Finlay H made it go in the motion of a hula hoop.
