A group made bird feeders to hang up at Fa’side Lodge in Tranent. The group went to the local shops to get the materials and put them together at school before taking them along. Hopefully these will attract all sorts of birds!
Some P6 pupils have been learning about Biodiversity. We took our mini microscope and went to see what was living in our log pile. We found worms and some very fast spiders – everything was very keen to escape! Looking forward to seeing what comes out as the weather gets warmer.
The pupils at Sanderson’s Wynd collected litter from around the school grounds.
Recycled Christmas Trees
The pupils all had fun using various bits of junk to build special Christmas trees. Who knew that litter could look so festive!
We were planing our Eco summit. We have been sending emails, phoning newspapers and creating shopping lists. We are expecting over 80 people to attend our event! There is still lots to organise but we are getting there!
The eco committee helped dig out the letters for the SWPS logo and started the planting of the bulbs. Other groups from different classes continued with the planting as the letters needed loads of bulbs to fill them in. We look forward to seeing the results this spring!
On Friday, 11th of November part of the Eco Committee took a trip to Dobbies Garden Centre in Lasswade to collect some bulbs that they kindly donated to our school. We are going to use the bulbs to plant the letters SWPS in our school grounds. We had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the trip!

Today was a very special day for us at Sanderson’s Wynd. We have earned our second Green Flag through lots of hard work that has involved the whole school. This morning we held a ceremony to raise our new flag. Well done to everyone in the school and community who has helped us achieve this goal!
On Saturday, September 3rd parents, pupils and staff met at school to take part in The Big Weed. We weeded for two hours and enjoyed some coffee, tea and delicious scones together. Thank you to everyone who took part. The flower beds look wonderful now!
In March p7 started putting plants in the veg plot with a lady called Barbara, from Roots and Fruits. They planted strawberries and a few leeks in the veg garden and we think they had a lot of fun and they are looking after their plants very well.
On the 15th of October, the whole school got together with our buddies and planted lots and lots of bulbs on the grassy hill. We will have lots of lovely flowers in the
