On the 4th of June the P7’s went to climb up Criffel with Mr A, Mr Fitzgerald and Mrs Fitzgerald. First we got a mini bus from Brydekirk all the way to the bottom of Criffel. When we started to climb it was quite cool because there was a big stream going down the entire hill. It got a bit harder the further we went up and very steep. Then we got to the top. Not long after we had about finished lunch and all took a lot of pictures (see above). We soon found out that it would be a lot harder than we thought: the new path (that was fine going up) was only gravel and we all just kept slipping but after a few brakes we made it down. After we went to Drumuir Ice Cream Parlour for some ice cream – there were loads of flavours to choose from. Finally, we got on the mini bus and drove back to school before the bell rang. We had an amazing trip up Criffel!
It’s the end of the second term and I’m really pleased that we’ve made it through the last two terms. Everyone has worked hard and should enjoy a well earned break.
Having said that, I often set holiday homework for anyone that is at a loose end and as I didn’t do it for the last holiday here’s some ideas for anyone that is stuck in on a wet day. This is optional and you should only attempt this with permission:
Cardboard box / diorama project (as discussed in class and see above).
Keep a diary of what you do in the holidays
Make a presentation
Mini Science Project
Make a movie
Write a Fact File
Something about anything, anything about something
iXL challenge (woosh for every 100 hundred questions at a challenging level)
For any of the above think about some of the things that you have learned since August: ecosystems, Judaism, circles, graffiti, discussion text, suspense stories, A Stranger Came Ashore etc.
Good luck if you give something a go.
Best wishes, I hope you all have a good break and see you in 2021,
Both classes at Brydekirk Primary joined Joe Wicks for the last 20 minutes of his 24 hour PE Challenge, which was broadcast live. Donations were made by Pupils and Staff for Children in Need and fun was had by all.
