We all had a visit from a dog warden yesterday and he even brought a dog! The dogs name was Mac and the people that were talking to us were called Jimmy and the other ones name was Carl. They came in bacause we are learning about East Lothian. Jimmy put out Two blue chairs out opposite each other and then put the big One metre stick that Mrs Gilmours maths set use for their Three times table and then they put it on the chair and then the dog jumped it the jump was about 75 cm.
Yesterday the dog warden came in to talk about his job. He was called Carl, and he had somebody called Jimmy with him. Jimmy had his dog Mac with him, Mac was 2 years old and he could jump over two chairs and land on his feet. The reason they came in because P4,5 are leaning about jobs in East lothian.

Primary 6/7 have been finding out about the ancient and modern Olympics and they shared their learning with us in this fabulous assembly.
We will be putting some QR codes in P6/7 Learning Stories, linking to the clip.
Following on from some bike maintenance that we’ve been doing at lunchtimes, Miss Kinghorn and Mr Ramage will be helping children to do basic repairs on their bikes at Bike Club on Mondays after school.
If your bike has a puncture or needs to have something fixed or tightened, fill in the form that went home on Friday and bring it and your bike along.
We’re keen to see any P6s who will be starting Bikeability Training soon so we can check to make sure their bikes are in good working order.
