Sports Day Week!

Good morning everyone,

Hope you have all been enjoying the lovely warm weather we are having and are staying safe! 🙂

Unfortunately due to recent events we have missed one of our favourite days of the year – sports day! I know many of our pupils and staff look forward to it every year, so instead we are going to have an entire sports week, and theme our PE grids around it!

The P1-2 grid is full of family fun sports day activities!

Whereas the P3-4 and P5-7 grids have beat the teacher challenges with some familiar faces to compete against!

The Community Quiz Trail MAP REVEAL

Teachers have hidden quiz questions all over Menstrie. Look out for these posters while you are out on your walks around the community. There are 10 stations, each with three questions (one for P1-2s, P3-4’s, P5-7’s) as well as a code letter so you can decode the special word.

Remember social distancing of 2 metres and stay safe when crossing roads.

Here is a map to help you find any you have missed. Quiz Trail Map

Here’s a brief video with some of the teacher’s hiding the stations while keeping their 2m distance and taking care crossing the roads on Thursday evening.

You can write your answers down on scrap paper, on your phone or you can download and print the Quiz Trail Answer Sheet.

Good luck and enjoy.
