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.
Last week we held a literacy workshop for parents/carers to see the resources we use and find out more about how we teach literacy in the early years. Here is the handout which was available on the evening.

Primary 2 enjoyed sharing their knowledge about the ancient Egyptians. They were most excitied about the gory bits and were glad to share this with school.
I hope you have all had a lovely summer holiday and I hope you all have a wonderful time back at school. I am very sad not to be there at East Linton this year, but I know you will all will have lots of fun this year. Good luck in your new classes and I will keep an eye out for all the wonderful things happening at East Linton.
Lots of Love
Next week is HEALTH WEEK!
We have some fantastic things planned, including the Healthy Cafe mentionned below by Miss Lawson.
Our focus is being healthy INSIDE AND OUT. So we are not just thinking about physical activity, but also eating well, relaxing and using our minds for creative and mental challenges.
Parents are invited to join in EARLY MORNING AEROBICS at 8.45am each morning. So pop on your trainers and come jump up and down to some good music.
Also if any parents wish to come on our WHOLE SCHOOL WALK, please give your name to your child’s teacher or to Audrey.
P.S Keep an eye out for photos from our week being posted!
In preparation for their new Spanish teacher next year, some of the P2 children (and their parents) are going to try and learn a little Spanish over the holidays. Mrs Henderson has given us this link to a useful website:
As part of our Health Week activities every class from P1 to P7 went out to the field with Mrs Mckendrick and ran (or walked if they were getting tired) around a half mile circuit. Every time they completed a circuit they received a token and these were added up at the end of the day to see how far the school had travelled.
These were the results for the individual classes:
P1 57 miles
P2 71 miles
P3 70 miles
P4 66 miles
P5 104 miles
P6 78 miles
P7 97 and a half miles
Some classes have been outside skipping with Emma our Active Schools Co-ordinator.
P2 have been learning about houses and homes. Today they have left their classroom and set up their class in two tents in the school grounds. Inspired by their recent work on “Send my friend to school” they are finding out what is is like for children around the world who have their lessons sitting under trees or in tents with their books on their knees. They have had snack outside and are planning to picnic for lunch too!
P2 have been busy!
