If you want to hear the interview in full go to our
podcast section.

Jack sent the pupils a lovely letter.
Dear Richard
I am writing to thank you for allowing me to take part in a podcast with the Primary 5 pupils from East Linton Primary School. I enjoyed speaking to the pupils and answering their questions. The questions were very well put and just as probing as many asked at First Minister's Questions. The pupils were articulate and confident and are a credit to the school.
I look forward to receiving the edited version of the question time and I would be grateful if you could pass my thanks to the pupils. Good luck with the school podcast project.

Please check the new maths resources in the Homework. pages. There is a detailed overview of what the pupils study at each level and examples of how you can help your child with maths. Please try the feed-back on the pages to let us know how good they are.

Take time to have a look at the Exc-el Network to see exciting and innovative work being carried out by a wide variety of pupils and staff in East Lothian.

You can see the questions they asked here. You can also hear the whole interview as the pupils recorded it from the telephone. Some great questions and some equally good answers. The pupils really enjoyed the experience and got a lot out of it. Listen and make up your own minds.
