Parents Afternoon

IMG_8116 IMG_8118 IMG_8122 IMG_8123On Monday the 5th of October,  our p7 class had some parents come in and watch us work. There were four groups to show parents what we had been learning in term one.  They were art, science, active spelling and maths. It was really warm because the classroom was crowded with all the pupils and parents. At art we coloured  in the starry night by Vincent van Gogh. At science we showed the parents how to make a series circuit and a parallel circuit. Then at active spelling we done our spelling words in all different designs.  At maths we showed our mums and dads how to break down long sums. Soon after it was time to go.

Activities Afternoon

On a Wednesday we have an activity’s afternoon which is where P5-P7 go to either Arts & Crafts, MUGA, Lego, Film Club or Health & Wellbeing. It is from 2pm-3pm instead of Golden Time which P1-P4 still do. I used to be in MUGA where we played basketball for 4 weeks and in basketball we played mini  games of basketball. We worked on our passing skills by playing where we picked a partner and we got told to pick who was number 1 and who was number 2.  The number 1’s ran around the MUGA pitch while number 2’s  tried to tackle all the number 1’s.
For the last two weeks we played football where we got split into two teams and the teacher gave numbers in our teams. Then the teacher called 3 numbers and if your number got picked you would play against whoever had the same numbers in the other team. I really enjoyed it.


For all of our Tuesday P.E sessions we have been doing Basketball which I think is really fun because we get to use the Muga for the whole time we’re outside. When we’re in the Muga we play real Basketball games  but when we’re not in the Muga we are practicing skills . If any teacher is thinking about doing Basketball with their class I really recommend it because it is a great skill to have .IMG_1047

P1 Buddies


On Friday all of P7 went to P1 to buddy.

When we arrived we sat down and listened to P1 sing songs.  They were amazing!  Some people said the P1s  were better than them.

After that we sat and read  story’s to them.

My buddy was called Alfie, he was so funny and very cute.

There  was a movie called Happy Feet but before that we helped them build Lego then watched the movie.

It was a very funny day. I learned how to take care of a P1 and this will help me in the future.    

P1 Buddies

Dean and buddy                                           

When I went down to meet my buddy he was so nice. I introduced my self to him his name was Kyle. I read him two story books and he listened well. He is a good well behaved p1. I learned that primary ones are important because they are wee and they are still learning. I enjoyed my day with my buddy because I have never done buddying so it was fabulously interesting.



This is our first blog post. We came to school one morning and the teacher had some exciting news for us ! The Judo Instructor had come to teach us some Judo. We went down to the gym hall and we sat down with our partners. I felt excited because I thought it was just a talk about it. When we started I was chosen to demonstrate a move. I cant remember what it was called. After I done that I got with my partner and we had a fight. My partner was extraordinarily strong and I couldn’t get out of the move. The woman  was a gold medallist at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. She showed us her gold medal which was quite cool. I really enjoyed judo and hopefully get to use my skills soon!
