This year Port Ellen Primary School have been in the finals of the Rolls-Royce science prize and we have had the BBC in to film us with all of our engineering that we have done over the past year. We also have a mentor called Neil Chattle and he has helped us all through the year.
Four people from this school went to the Celebration of science in Glasgow with their wind turbine and did very well. We also had a finalist in the younf Imagineers comptition and took part in the BP Stem Challenge. We have learned lots about renewables and engineering and are know much better at engineering. It has been a very successful project and I now want to be a civil engineer.
On Friday 22nd of June Port Ellen Primary went to the White Hart beach. They were going to have some fun at the beach. When they got there they were with Bowmore Primary. When they got there they were digging holes and making sandcastles. Some time later Mr Shakespeare came with a bat to play french cricket. It was fun. After that we played rounders because there was too many people for french cricket. Rounders was also fun because we were all running about. It was Port Ellen Primary against Bowmore primary. Bowmore primary won. After that it was time for lunch. For my lunch I had a sandwich a pack of crisps and a yogurt. It was lovely and sunny and a great day out.
On Thursday 28th June P7 are going on a trip to celebrate finishing Primary Shcool and will be going on the Seafari boat and they are going to be seeing different types of wildlife around Islay. Before we go on Gus’ boat there is a leavers assembely and after school we go on the Seafari boat. After we get to go home and get ready for the disco but before we got to the disco all of the P7’s get to go to Seasalt to have pizza as our dinner. Once we get our dinner we all walk up together to the disco after everyone else is already there. Once we get to the disco there is music, juce and crisps and sometimes there is games. When we are on they boat and out far enough we might even get a turn of steering the boat! Here is a picture from last years trip.
On Monday 11th June 2018 Port Ellen primary school had their sports day. Every year for sports day, their is a girl sports champion and a boy sports champion, so to be able to do that primary’s 6 and 7 had to do some sports activities to be able to win the sports champion winners trophy. All the class of 6/7 did activities from high jump and long jump to cross country and football dribble, as well as many more. As tiring as it seems everyone whom participated did exceptionally well and really tried their best which pleased lots of people. On the day of sports day all the school (as well as some of the adults) did the races to add points onto their house for the shield. All of the school was stunning and they were all fantastic at giving everything a go and not giving up. The sports champions where announced, Boys: 1st Jack, 2nd Taylor, 3rd Matthew and Donald. Girls: 1st Lauren, 2nd Sophie, 3rd Rebecca. Thankfully the sun was shining, meaning everyone was having a splendid time.
