CLUSTER CAMP 2016!!!!!

Okay, it has been a long time since anybody has posted on here and I apologize for that!!!120419-kingswood-040

Basically something really exciting is happening to my class and I’m here to write about it, then once I come back I will write about it more in great detail.

Cluster Camp.

P7’s are going to camp on Tuesday, somewhere in England. Not too far away though!!!

We are going to have so much fun!!! It is a great chance to meet new people and have the best time of our lives!!!

For me it is going to be quite challenging, as I, along with others in my class, have a massive fear of heights. Most of the activities at camp involve heights so I’m really going to have to challenge myself. 

One of the activities is called ‘The Leap Of Faith’ and I don’t know about you but I think that sounds really scary!!! You basically have to climb up a big wooden pole, then when you get to the top you will be standing on a platform. About the size of a ruler (maybe two) away, there is another platform. All you need to do is jump to it. It doesn’t sound too bad, but when you’re at the top of the pole and you are looking down or across at the platform. It is possibly the scariest feeling ever.

Now, don’t quote me on anything I say in this post about camp, because I haven’t been yet and I don’t have a clue how scary it is. We will be completely safe and harnessed in for all of it, so there really isn’t anything to be afraid of. I personally just think of how I will be and bail out. I’ve promised myself and my teacher that I am going to attempt to try all the activities!!!

Have you been to camp? Even if it wasn’t with your school, have you went camping at all???

I remember over a year ago I went to Beamish with my class for my topic. That was SO fun!!! I wish I could go back, it just means that my P7 camp has some competition!!! 🙂 

Now, I do apologize for not posting anything, but I promise that I’m going to try to post as much as I can before the summer holidays!!!

I will be writing about my time at camp soon, so be ready for that, but for now, think about what I’ve said and hopefully it will inspire you to go out and do some activities you might be afraid to do!!!

See you soon…

Have a nice day!!!

Guess what!!!

Our little crowd of reporters has expanded!!!

Now, instead of it just being me and my friend Alana, there is a whole group of people that will be writing on here. There is about 15 of us now. So exciting!!!

I’m sure the others will be just as dedicated as me and Alana are, and that they will introduce themselves and hopefully they will make a good impression. First impression counts!!!

It is so exciting that others are writing on here, and it isn’t just me. It may not seem it, but it is.

How are you guys? I always talk about myself and my friends. I never really think that people will actually be reading this! :’D

My class, which is P7, were running about this morning. It was almost as if we were a pack of headless chickens that had way too much sugar! Now, before you jump to any conclusions, or think that we are a bunch of weirdos! It is all because we now have our school pictures, and it isn’t just the regular ones that you get every year. This time we have gotten a frame with ALL of our school photos in it. From primary 2 to the last picture we took. Which was primary 6. We are yet to take our last picture. I’m probably going to cry when that happens. I always cry when it is the last of anything. The last Christmas party, the last disco. I’m not the only one!!!

I’m so excited for the weeks to come with all the new bloggers!!!

See you soon…

Have a nice day!!!

New year…


It’s a new year, and the school is tired and mourning the fact that Christmas is officially over!


Maybe not my class, they’re even more hyper than before!

We are lovely really! It’s just nice to greet all of your friends again!

The school got busy straight away after we came back from the Christmas holidays, getting ready for Scottish week. A week where we learn all about something from Scotland, this year my class are focusing on Scottish celebrities. There are so many!!!

David Tennant, who played The Doctor in Doctor Who. I’m focusing on a guy named Connor Ball, because he is in my favourite band… My friend Alana – who also posts on this blog – is focusing on the Proclaimers. I absolutely love that band, and a lot of people in the school are obsessed. (Especially the teachers!!!)

My class have been working on translating a famous children’s book into Scottish. It seems easy, it’s really not!!! The books are…

Owl Babies ~ Hoolit Bearns

Please Don’t Talk To The Bus Driver ~ Please Dinnae Blether Tae The Bus Driver

It took a long time just to think of the title! Now we have to actually remake the book, illustrations and all!

Do you know any good stories that have been translated into Scottish? Have you done it before? If so, was it difficult? Let us know!

The school has been cooped up in our classrooms because of the weather, so now when we go outside it’s extra special! It has been snowing all week! It’s very icy and frosty, just the way I like it! I’m pretty sure a lot of people in the school prefer winter to anything else!

Have you been enjoying the weather? Or do you prefer summer?

Hope you are having a good time wherever you are, whatever you are doing!

I hope you reunited with some friends and family, have a good day!

See you soon…

Have a nice day!!!

Hello there!

Hi, my name is Eilidh and I’m writing this blog with my friend, Alana.

I’m trying to blog about things happening in my school, which is Mayfield Primary. To be honest, I’m quite nervous about it, but very excited at the same time. SO much stuff happens in the community and the fact that me and my friend are going to be blogging about it all and keeping everybody up to date is just amazing! 🙂

A lot happens, the gala day, sports days, discos, learning, Sumdog! EVERYTHING!!!

From now on, there will be a lot of posts going up. Mostly about our Scottish topic, for now. Which is quite convenient, since this is Glow Scotland…

So goodbye for now, I will see you later! Hope you will enjoy reading posts.

Have a nice day!!!
