Outdoor Learning Week: We think last week was a great success, with many pupils commenting on how much they enjoyed getting outdoors and learning in a different way.

Sunshine – Sun safe: Reminder -The wonderful weather is very welcome but we must make sure our children are sun safe. As appropriate, please apply sun cream at the start of each school day, send your child with a sun hat and make sure they have a water bottle every day. Thank you.

This week we have been looking at Volcanoes. We made our own from an empty juice bottle and paper mache, we added vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, washing up liquid and food colouring to make it erupt.
Felix – we made a volcano and it erupted.
Lawson – I painted the volcano, I used brown, grey and black paint on the volcano. We used orange and red paint for the lava coming down the sides.
Finlay – it’s got lava.

Coldingham ELC4’s also got to meet their buddies in preparation for going into p1 in August. We have lots of exciting activities arrange for the coming weeks.


Primary 1 and 2 had a super week. We listened to Where The Wild Things are and drew wild things! We went on a hunt in the woods to look for wild things. We found some! We looked at the houses in our village. We wrote down what saw. We saw all sorts of houses.
