Mrs McGowan’s primary sevens have been doing circuits in p.e . We have done shuttle runs, burpies, star jumps, squats and push ups/sit-ups. We had to record our scores. It wasn’t the first time we had done this, some of us did it last year. It was kind of fun and confusing because you had to add up the scores after it. After each session we were sweating!

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.
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.
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!
