A number of children from P3 and P4 are attending an after school art club with Miss Mastin. Parents and local community members have also volunteered their time to come and help us, which is fantastic and greatly appreciated. So far we’ve created creatures out of boiled eggs, and designed some amazing masks. Have a look for yourselves at what we’ve done!
On Tuesday, Primary 3 hosted and participated in an authentic Burns Supper.
There were a lot of things to prepare and organise for the event. The class spent a few weeks learning poems and roles, dances and songs, and learning about Robert Burns and a Burns Supper. As the time drew closer, there were shopping lists to write, tatties to peel and delicious shortbread to make (thanks to Sam’s mum and Malcolm’s mum for volunteering their baking services!).
Primary 1 also came along briefly to perform a song and recite some Scottish poetry for the guests.
It was a fabulous event of which I’m sure Rabbie Burns would have approved. Well done Primary 3!
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.
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.

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!
