We are holding a Potato growing competition at the nursery. The boys and girls have already planted their potatoes and they are looking after them. We have some other groups from the community taking part too. If you would like to join in at home then please see Miss Hunter for details.
Judging will take place after the summer holidays and the group who has the heaviest collection of potatoes will be annouced the winner.
We are very excited to announce that a blue tit family has moved into our new bird box. The bird box has a better image than before which can be projected on to our IWB and it even has sound. Can you see how many eggs Mrs Bluetit has laid? What can you hear?
We were awarded our 3rd Ecoschools green flag in June. We put it up for the first time today. Mrs Leach had kindly put a number 3 on it for us.
Watch out for our photo in the East Lothian Courier soon!!!
Does anyone know where we could recycle some of our plastic bottle tops?
Thank you to everyone who brought footwear for recycling. The grand total was 352 pairs of shoes. Two parents from our Parents Committee have already taken the shoes to Edinburgh for recycling.
On Thursday the boys and girls in the afternoon will be having a sale of sunflower seeds and broad beans that they collected at the end of the summer, along with bags of compost.
Packets of 5 seeds will be sold for 10p and bags of compost for 50p. The money raised will go towards Malawi. Please remember to bring some money.
As you are aware we are already recycling shoes. We welcome all kinds of footwear, all sizes and in any condition. Please place in the decorated wheely bin at the door and then put the corresponding number of stickers onto our shoe chart, remember one sticker per pair.
The shoes will be donated to the charity “500 miles”. This charity will either recycle or reuse them. Some may even end up in Malawi. Click on the link below for the charity’s website.
