MEADOWPARK MATTERS NEWSLETTER 20.11.2020

Amazing work from Tyne who are optimistically looking towards spring.  The have completed their bird boxes and got them in place ready for any new tenants, who will be envy of the Haddington bird population in their Grand Designs.

  

Esk class have worked hard on the Goat Trail project and a big thank you to Mrs Davis and the whole Esk team who have coordinated this across the school.  You may have seen our contribution on Twitter already.  Look out for it around Haddington soon!

 

In other news, Clyde class have been discovering inner peace with some meditation and learning all about the story of Buddha.  I wondered why they’ve been uncharacteristically quiet…..

Leven have been finding out about Japan.  They have named the main islands, the capital city and the highest mountain on blank maps (as a geographer I am very proud of them).  They had a quiz to find out about different aspects of life in Japan including food, sport, traditional costume, language and population.  They have been developing their Origami skills too!

In Forth, five students have been attending a range of classes in Knox Academy, including 2 new classes where they have achieved our first National 4 Unit Assessment passes for which we are very proud. They have made delicious chocolate cakes in HE and we have even been treated to a display in drone flying.  Exciting stuff.

 

We were looking forward to welcoming the Glasgow based 12guitars project safely into school this week, but given the updated guidance that affects the Glasgow area, we decided to postpone this visit.  Hopefully we will be able to re-arrange the launch of this very soon.  Who knows, we may even be able to have a summer outdoor gig.  Meadowpark in the Park Festival anyone?

Have a great weekend.

Mr Johnson and the Meadowpark team.
