P1000696Port Ellen’s Primary 7’s went on an Endeavour trip to Bowmore to share their Endeavour with Bowmore’s Primary P5-7 to inspire them and help new ways to improve their Endeavour. They came around different tables talking about what they wanted to do for their Endeavours and how Port Ellen can help and give them some good tips. They also asked questions about their Endeavours and what good skills and strategies they could use to help them. In the end we ended up playing bonding games and making new friends.

bronaghWe asked Bronagh questions about what she did in Westminster in London.  We firstly asked her a question on why she was there.  She went to Parliament because she was an young Scottish winner of an art competition for I love Amazon schools.  In Parliament they were taking photos and talking about the rain forest.  She had to go through lots of security when she was entering Parliament.  She was in there for 2-3 hours just listening about the rain forest and getting photos taken.  They also asked her questions like “How did you think of your slogan?”which was ‘Hands off our trees, Leaf them alone.’  She also learned that every minute a football pitch worth of trees is cut down and the situation is so critical.

But in conclusion she had a lovely time in Westminster and learned a lot about the Amazon rainforest.

As part of our 10 Pieces music topic we have been creating art in response to pieces of classical music.  We have created abstract pieces and yesterday we made art based on the theme of flight in response to a piece of music.  This is Beth’s picture based on the piece Mars by Holst.

Yesterday our school Port Ellen had a science visit. And we made wind surfers for to play races with. We used junior saws to cut our wood. We also got to use straws for attaching the wheels. When it finished it had been home time.
