Our Whole School Walk on PhotoPeach
Today our whole school went on a walk to the sea wall at Belhaven Bay. Primary 6/7 buddied Primary 1 and Primary 4/5 buddied Primary 2/3. We took snacks and drinks with us and played games. Some of us spotted “the man with the fish on his head” as we walked past Seafield Pond. We enjoyed our walk and are proud of our good behaviour. Some of our Mums came along to help and we would like to thank them. We hope they enjoyed the walk too.
The Scottish Government has published some new short films on Curriculum for Excellence for parents on the Engage for Education web site at www.engageforeducation.org/cfefilms. The films illustrate, in nursery/primary/secondary learners’, parents’ and teachers’ own words, the kind of impact and benefits that CfE is having across the country.
The films contribute towards the Cabinet Secretary’s CfE Action Plan 2011/12 commitment to develop new materials for parents which illustrate the benefits of CfE, following specific calls for such resources from parents. They have been developed in co-operation with the National Parent Forum of Scotland.
On Friday 23rd March the Dunbar Rotary Club will be coming into school to talk to us about the Jole Rider Organisation. This is an educational organisation and registered charity. We will be asking children to bring in a suitable book to donate to an African child and a small donation; 50p towards the cost of transportation.
The children will learn about the life of an African Child and the importance of donating books in support of this project.
In assembly today we congratulated our Stars of the Week for all of the hard work they have been putting in this week. Once again our pupils have been successful learners in different parts of our daily school life, we celebrated achievements in spelling, talking and listening, writing and maths. Our playground games leaders have been working really hard this week to teach us new games at break time.
On Friday 8th of March we went to Dunbar Primary School for a science festival.It was fun and all of the class took a fit when a balloon poped.
Today at school we thought it would be an ordinary gym lesson, playing golf but we were wrong! Minutes after we had gone outside a ferret appeared. A cat was stalking it. Miss Jones, our P.E. teacher took us inside because she did not want to see the ferret end up dead. Mrs Kavanagh came out wearing a pair of gloves and heavy boots. She tried to catch it but it ran into the nursery. She eventually managed to catch it and put it in a box with cardboard over the top. She had to sellotape the top of the box so that it couldn’t escape. The R.S.P.C.A. have been called and are coming to pick the ferret up. We have named him Perry. We hope that Perry enjoyed his golf lesson and that the cat will return next week to practise his putting skills!
Today Mrs Kavanagh spotted a white ferret running free in the playground, enjoying the sunshine! Mrs Kavanagh caught the ferret, who was friendly and obviously a pet, at around 11am. The RSPCA came round to collect him (he is a boy, and neutered) at about 12pm. He is a young ferret, about a year old but fully grown. If you have any information regarding his owners please contact the RSPCA at Bonnyrigg on 03000 999 999. Thank you!
