Willow dome gets a lock down haircut

Many thanks must go to Mrs Richardson, Ivy Richardson and the team of helpers from p5-7 who over the last two Friday afternoons have set about the back garden area at school.

The willow dome was in great need of a lock down haircut – it had grown out of  control.  Have  a look at the wonderful transformation. 

Many thanks to Mrs Richardson and her team for all of their hard work.

Mrs Baillie is looking forward to the hairdressers opening soon so she can have the same magical transformation…….

P5-7 achieve their Playleaders Awards!

This morning, P5-7 enjoyed their second and final session with Laura McClymont from Active Schools, which resulted in them all being awarded with their Young Sports Leader ‘Playleader’ awards!

Their introductory session was just before the Christmas break and the class took some planning time this week to refresh their memories and organise a game which they could then deliver to their schoolmates.

They needed to think about organisation, safety, groupings and rules. An extra challenge was to go ‘equipment-free’ if possible!

What a range of games were played! The pupils had created a wide choice of games including: Rome Tig, RaRa Relays, Spire Tig, Minecraft Mayhem, Warmongers, Cat and Mouse, Hide n’ Tig, Catch the Villager and Rounders Catch! Laura was most impressed!

Certificates to follow. These are recognised national awards at level 2 – go P5-7!

Well done all!
