On world book day we were given a bookmark competition to do. We had to make a bookmark about reading. We don’t know what the prizes are but we hope we can win it.
On Sunday 25th February it was the Shinty Tounament. We had to be there by Quarter to twelve and it started at twelve o’clock. The p6/7 went to the big hall and the 45 had to go to the wee hall i was at the wee hall, and the first teams to play were bowmore and the port ellen team the super sweeper and i got hit in the arm by a stick. The scores were 1-1.
It was a celebration of Robert Burns on 25th January at Port Ellen Primary School. Children had spent weeks learning their poems to recite to the eminent judges on the day, and we couldn’t wait to see who won. We stopped early for lunch, which included the traditional Haggis, neeps and tatties. Mrs Carmichael said the traditional Burns lines over the haggis before it was served.
After lunch we held a ceilidh with parents attending for a dance and a song. Aileas entertained us on the fiddle, and the Highland Dancers were amazingly springy as they danced. The children have all been learning dancing, and it was great to see them dancing with their parents and friends to the Gay Gordans and Canadian Barn dance. The winners of the poetry competition were announced and were Murray in P1,Bronagh in P2, Abbie in P3, Maisie in P4, Ellen in P5, Aileas in P6 and Eilidh in p7. All in all a fantastic celebration of Scottish Culture.
