Tag Rugby and end of term

There’s some lovely pics of some of our Tag Rugby team in this week’s Annandale Observer by Steve Matthew:

Thanks to Coach Primrose and Ioni for the coaching.

Have a great break.

Tag Rugby

Today, members of P7, P6 and some P5 went to Violetbank in Annan to take part in the Tag Rugby Fesitval. Despite a wet start, the rain stopped and the sun even came out. We played four games, the first three back to back and then got our best result in the last game when we drew 3-3 with Beattock. Well done to all who took part and thanks to Active Schools and Annan Rugby for a fun morning.

Look out for pictures on the Annandale & Eskdale Active School & Community Sport on Facebook – see the link on the right.

Road Relay

We entered a girls and a boys team into the Road Relay event last week at the Everholm in Annan. Well done to the boys who came 14th overall and also to the girls team below, who came 9th overall and 3rd in the small schools.

Basketball Tournament – Match Report

Our first match was against Langholm Jets and it was a very physical match which we won 6-1. Our next match was against Hecklegirth Stingwrays and they missed a couple of chances so we won 3-0. After a forty minute break we played Newington Warriors and lost 2-0 to a very skillful team. Then we had a play-off against Langholm again and it was a very rough match but we won 2-1. Our next match was against Hecklegirth Harriers, it was a very fast paced match and we lost 1-0. So it was a fight for third and we were against Newington Wildcats and they were well prepared so we lost 2-1.

Finally, it was presentation time. Hecklegirth came 1st, Newington Warriors came 2nd and Newington Wildcats came 3rd. Brydekirk came 4th and we all tried 100%.

Mean Icicles

Hope everyone is well.

Anyone bored, please see my post from yesterday.

Here’s another one for you. We’ve been learning about mean, median and mode in mathematics. Yesterday, I spotted these beauties hanging from a gutter: icicles! I carefully counted and measured them using technology (it was too cold and dangerous otherwise) and found the following lengths:

{23cm, 40cm, 25cm, 28cm, 44cm, 25cm, 32cm, 34cm, 30cm, 28cm, 32cm, 49cm, 37cm, 25cm}

Find:

  1. the mean length of icicle in cm.
  2. the median icicle length, in cm.
  3. and find the mode.

We’ve also been working on the internal angles of polygons and so far have found out pentagons and hexagons. Find out more.

Alternatively, find three dice and have a game of Yahtze, or teach someone how to play it.

Hope everyone is well in these adverse conditions.

Best wishes,

Mr A

Another Snow Day

School is closed again today. I hope everyone is safe in this cold weather.

Things to do other than destroy your brains with devices or TV:

  • Go out and play in the snow, this may be the most you’ll see in your childhood (make sure you tell whoever is looking after you and are prepared for the weather)
  • Read
  • Write about your day off (any P7s who have written a blog post, and have their password, should write it up on this blog and I’ll post it)
  • Do some iXL maths (see homework link at the side)
  • Do some Spelling City (as above)
  • Find out more about our topic, history: GD Alfred the Great, DS King Canute, EA Edward the Confessor, JF William the Conqueror, MB Henry I, AC Richard I, DN Edward I, ChR Richard III, HM Henry VIII, LO Mary I, AM Elizabeth I, BO James VI & I, HA Charles II, RL Victoria and ON Elizabeth II.
  • Commit all of the dates on the sheet of Kings and Queens to memory, in preparation for your quiz next week
  • Draw, paint or create something
  • and anything else that requires thought, concentration and effort.

Bring any work in to present, like you do after holidays.

Best wishes and stay safe,

Mr A
