Meet and Greet with Kimberley Renicks

All of the pupils of Uplawmoor Primary were lucky enough to meet our fabulous Commonwealth Gold Medalist, Kimberley Renicks.10

The children asked Kimberley lots of questions and found out how she started her career in judo.  Kimberley also told us about her training regime and how she maintains a healthy diet.  We were suprised to hear that she is allowed a sneaky can of Irn Bru or a pizza as a special treat and she only has a take-away once a month!

Thanks for coming to see us Kimberley!

Netball – P7 Pupils vs Staff

We had loads of fun today during our netball competition – ‘Staff versus P7s’

Mr Reid, Mr Philips, Mr Reilly, Mrs Crawford and the teachers fought a hard battle against the Primary 7 leavers.  A big thanks to the rest of the school for cheering us on (well… I’m not sure how many cheers we heard for the staff?)

All the Primary 7 pupils had to have a lie down afterwards as they had a tougher match than they first expected!  All the staff, however, went for a jog round the park. Ha ha!

Great fun had by all.

Sports Day!

Well the sun DID shine for us on Friday!  We had a superb day at our annual Sports Day tournament and the children, staff and parents all got their running shoes on (or flip flops) and got involved with the variety of sporting activities on offer.  What a great way to finish an amazing year!

P4/5 Cricket

Today we welcomed Asid and  Saifer who are cricket experts.  We learned how to stop the ball by using our legs as a barrier and we were shown how to make ‘bucket’ hands when catching the ball.    After the skills section, we had a game of cricket.  There was a batting team and a fielding team and we learned how to win points for our team.  We will be continuing our cricket skills every Thursday for the next 3 weeks.

‘Mini’ Commonwealth Games Morning

On Thursday 24th April, Uplawmoor Primary had a fun filled ‘mini’ Commonwealth Games morning.  All the pupils took part in different sports such as running, judo, bowls and rugby.  Afterwards, the pupils got together to have an ending ceremony and gave out prizes for the most competitive pupils.  Afterwards, the pupils had a Freddo and a drink to enjoy in the classroom.  All the pupils had a great time celebrating the Commonwealth Games!
