One day after rugby club we where pulled in and I was chosen to be the mascot for the Scotland Rugby Team through the Islay Minis Rugby club, which is a club for people who want to play rugby till there in s2 and then they have to go to the one in high school. On February 24th me, my dad and my grandad headed to Murrayfield to see the Scotland vs England rugby match as I was the mascot. When we got the stadium we had to meet up with the rest of the mascots to go and sit in a room and wait for some other people as they were late. When every one was in the room our parents went to there seats and we were taken into the tunnel where we waited for the game to start. When the game was just about to start the players came out and lined up. I was partnered with Stuart Hogg who was my favourite player. When we ran out we had walk forward and kneel as Princess Anne walked behind us and shook the players hand. After that we went off and went to our seat and watched the game. Where we were sitting we had the subs right behind us. After half time we back to our seats and the game started up and it started up. When England were progressing through our defence, Jamie Bhatti, another one of my favourite players, he was injured and carried off and when he came up the steps to his seat he almost fell as he had torn something in his leg. After the game we went down and had to wait till the players got ready and got changed then they came out to sign our t-shirts and other stuff. I was really thrilled that Scotland won!
On Thursday 18th May Port Ellen primary made a timeline out of tapestries. It was right from the Mesolithic times to WWII. Some of the timelines we made were The Battle of Trigh Guniart, Port Ellen in 1820s, Kildalton Cross, Finlaggan, Higland Clearenses, WW11 Boat Planes, Tuscania and Kilbride Chapel. Everyone in the school took part, with help from the Islay Quilters and other members of the local community and some people made a banner for the Feis as well. A lot of the tapestries are for monuments in the past and the timeline will help us remember our history.

On Monday 20th February Port Ellen Primary School had Martin Rae in to do football coaching and sports leader training with the children. We had to do warm up activities that were very fun and active. We had to do different types of relay races in our assigned teams. We had to practice dribbling using the new more challenging skills that we had been taught. At the end we sat down and he told us different warm up activities that would help us run our clubs. Over all we thought that it was a great experience and helped improve our football skills.
