New Wave Power Machine Device designs

Our new topic in science is electricity and how it is created. During the February Holidays we had homework! It was to design on paper a new wave machine device (to create electricity). When we got back to school we put our ideas together into one big one. So far we have made a power point on our own device and lots of different devices we learnt about. We have also made a big version of our new device on paper and a prototype made out of K-Nex. The 4 designs are called: The Dunlly, The Doghnut Device, The ERCEE and The Super Sweeper! We are entering the designs into the Saltire Awards JR.

There was a shinty tournament on Islay at Bowmore high school on the 24th of Febuary.  Schools from around Islay came to the shinty tournament.  It was a great turnout.  There were heats and then there was a final.  Our Port Ellen team won it for the 10th time in a row, and the Port Ellen younger team won their group as well.  So it was a good tournament over all for Port Ellen as we took both of the trophies home and were very proud of it.  It was very fun and was a good challenge for us. We want to  thank all the people that prepared it and we thank all the people that came to the event.

Rugby Training

On Tuesday 19th February 2013 p5,6 and 7  had a rugby trainer called Alan teaching us how to play tag rugby. We learned how to do a tag and to pass the ball backwards. We had mini teams of 5 and played some games. There were the greens the oranges the blues and the non bibs.  We also had some races so we had to run to the bottom of the pitch and do a touch down and run back up to the top, turn to the side and then throw the ball to the other person.  It was great fun!
