P1/2 Trip to Newhailes

We had a fantastic day out yesterday! We spent our morning at the Newhailes Estate in Musselburgh. The children used their learning from class to measure some of the trees in the woodland and calculated how old they were!

We then spent some time in the Weehailes play park. It was great fun!

Thank you so much go our adult helpers for joining us today! We all had a brilliant time.

Signor Baffo’s Restaurant!

As an end of term treat, P1/2 were invited to a very special performance at Moredun Library! We were able to watch a taster of Signor Baffo’s show which will be on at the Fringe Festival this year.

We had such a fantastic time! The children and Miss Read were laughing from start to finish! We are so thankful to Mrs Cameron for thinking of us, this was a brilliant show that we all recommend to any families going to the Fringe this year!

It’s a Living Thing!

Not only have P1/2 been growing sunflowers in class, but the pupils have also been looking after some Caterpillars! It’s amazing how much they’ve grown in just one week. Miss Read is so happy to be keeping them on her desk where they can stay warm.

We can’t wait to see them make their cocoons and become butterflies!


Well done to all those kids and mums and dads and carers and teachers who biked and scooted during our big pedal. We had nearly 200 kids each day turning up on 2 wheels every day during the 2 weeks. Wow! PLEASE DON’T STOP!!! Now that you’re in the habit please keep of biking and scooting to school just keep on going – it’s a great way to start your day.

We hoped you liked your wee prizes. with nearly 200 gifts to buy Halfords at Straiton park and our parent partnership were very generous in funding the prizes along with the school.

And the winners of the 2018 big pedal were P3a!! Well done team!IMG_1223

Here’s a wee video of our bike breakfast a couple of week ago during the big pedal:

Tomorrow we have a triathlon day for all of our P3s to P7s in school. 30 bike machines in the hall. cool!
