We all had great fun wearing our tartan in assembly today (Mr. Baptie even wore his kilt!) We shared what we have all been doing in classes this week for Robert Burns’ Day as part of our whole school Scottish Theme. From Poetry to Art Work……. from Drama to Dancing…….. we had it all…… even a hunt the haggii competition! See if you can spot any in our slideshow. Also look out for Meg the horse’s tail in the P6/7′s version of Tam O’Shanter……. what a tale of a tail!

Well it’ s here at last, Science week at East Linton takes place between Monday 12th March – Friday 16th March. We have a fantastic line up of events this year including our very own CSI East Linton. We also have DNA workshops, mini beast hunts, fossil making, investigating bacteria, discovering how animals move and a presentation about CERN and the Higgs Boson. We also have visits from Dunbar Grammar, Edinburgh Uni and Generation Science. It should be an action packed week, but we hope that you will continue the science theme at home by encouraging your children to try some experiments or carry out some research on a scientist, they can then display their work at our Science Showcase on Friday 16th March. We will also be running a competition in school which will give the children the opportunity to design their own unique invention with some great prizes on offer. You will find some great ideas for simple experiments at www.sciencebob.com/ If you are passing the playground during science week keep an eye out for some high flying rockets and exploding lunch bags!!!
The Open Morning today was a resounding success. P3/4 gave an excellent reprise of their assembly on the Romans and Celts and the hall was buzzing. Thanks to P6 for organising the coffee morning and tours of the school. Thank you to the Parent Council and P6 parents who helped with the coffees. Thank you to the Nursery and their helpers for the baking that they did this week and sold this morning in aid of SLA.
We have had a quick tally of the money raised and we have raised £332.50 so far. Raffle tickets are still on sale for the Muriel’s Wedding Girls’ night out and we will draw this at the beginning of the week after half term.
Thank you all for your support and generosity.
Nursery to Primary 4 thoroughly enjoyed a visit from the Hopscotch Theatre and were treated to a performance of Puss in Boots.
“I liked her long tail and the way she caught the mice”, said Anna about the Puss character.
“It was Mick being the lady!” said Elli about the Dame.
“He was a bit scary….”, said Morven about the ogre.
” I liked the boy’s kilt,” said William. ” I liked the King’s fat belly,” said Ashley.
