The Primary 7s are well on their way to mastering cursive writing – well done for all your efforts!
These past couple of weeks we have been finding lots of interesting information about the Scottish Parliament. On Tuesday 22nd January we will enjoy a dynamic lesson with a Scottish Parliament Outreach visitor. 7C are in the process of writing to our MSP Iain Gray in the hope that he might come in for a visit and answer some of our questions about the work of an MSP. Watch this space!
Well done to all the Primary 7s who held a fantastic Christmas Fair this morning. Thank you for all your beautiful baking – always a winner – and for all the very successful stalls. The younger children in the school enjoyed it so much and I know that all the teachers were very impressed with you too. A lot of the money has still to be counted but so far, you’ve raised well over £700 – very well done!!
As the nation gets ready to be gripped by excitement of the Paralympics, the P7s have had a fantastic time this week enjoying so many different sports and activities. Thank you to Mrs Baillie for organising everything and everybody! And a big thank you as well to all the parent helpers without whom it wouldn’t have been possible to get out and about.
P7, what have you most enjoyed about your week?
The week beginning 20th August is Health Week (many thanks to Mrs Baillie for organising everything!). Please come to school in your joggers. Polo shirts and school sweatshirts are still to be worn, as usual. We’ll be out of school on Monday for bowling (wear trainers please) and on Thursday for golf (sunshine on order!). Let’s all make an effort to have healthy snacks next week!
Please could all P7s ensure they have the correct, labelled PE kit in school for their lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
On Wednesdays, we will have PE as a year stage (led by the P7 teachers) first thing in the morning. We will often be going over to the Sports Centre where we have a booking from 9am. In order to maximise our PE time, we would like all P7 pupils to come to school in their PE kit. This means we can quickly register everybody and then start our PE lesson promptly without wasting time on getting changed. It is essential, however, that you bring your school uniform into school with you as everybody will be changing out of their PE kit once the lesson ends. It is also important that you dress appropriately for the weather: even though you are coming in PE kit, you will still need a coat; as the weather cools it might be best to come in joggers with your PE shorts beneath.
Enjoy your final two days of holiday as the new term begins on Wednesday. We look forward to welcoming you into your final year at Law Primary!

This week the P7 Football team won their 3rd trophy of the season! We are the first East Lothian school team to lift the Hibernian Primary Schools Football Trophy in a new festival organised by Hibernian Football Club and the Clydesdale Bank. The 2 day festival was held at Hibernian’s new Training Centre and Law were the boys’ winners and Burgh Primary from Musselburgh were the girls’ winners. All the boys received goody bags with replica shirt and everyone had a great time. Well done boys again! To find out more and see a picture of our winning team click on this link:
This term all pupils in P7 are doing some personal research on Rivers. Everyone has chosen something they would like to find out more about and we are working on our own or with some friends in class and at home. Its good to get the choice of what to research as well as working in groups. In our comments we will tell you all about it!
Here are some examples of our plans…\
