Highlights of a short week in the Biggies

The biggies has a sporty week:

On Monday we practised our junior leaders routines. We will lead activities with p1-3 very soon.

On Wednesday we had a visit from Active Schools Julie and a Rugby Scotland Coach. We had a great time play some rugby based activities.

We also did some group work on Climate Change:

 

Group Work Climate ChangeWe finished the week by meeting up with the Primary 1-3 and sharing the Autumn zines we made last week.

Biggies time at Dow’s woods

Today we went to Dow’s woods with the wee ones. We were all looking for signs of autumn. The biggies and the wee ones were partners. This is how our trip went …

Signs of autumn

When we were walking with our wee partners we were looking out for signs of autumn some of the sings we found were hazelnuts that had fallen of of a tree, brambles, rowan berries, and changing leaves some of these things we collected.  Also the biggies were looking out for trip hazards and eye hazards while we were walking with our wee buddies.

When we arrived to our spot

When we arrived to out usual spot in the woods we looked for more signs after that our wee buddies had to leave. Once they left we decided to draw a tree we each picked a tree to draw. We have to remember which tree we drew because we are going to go back and draw it in different seasons. When we were finished drawing we wrote some poems about our trees.

Games and chaos

When we finished drawing and writing we played some games the games we played were sardines. Which is where a couple of people hide and if you find a person you have to hide with them until eventually everyone is found. When I found someone they were lying down on the mud hiding so then I had to join them until their was three of us thankfully time was up. Then after that we ran all the way back to school.

I really enjoyed the wood especially getting to show the wee ones the wood since some of them have never seen it. I hope we do this again some time.

Rotary Competition for COP26 Conference

The objective is to raise awareness of Climate Change by inviting school children to design a poster on A4, which would convey their message to the world on what needs to be done to make the world a better and safer place for their generation.

P6-7 all had a go and we sent of a couple to the Rotary club last week. This fit in well with our learning about Climate Change this term.

Junior Sports Leaders

On Monday Afternoon Julie from Active Schools, @NLASC_Julie, started week one of our Junior Leaders program. The Children in p6&7 are learning how to lead the younger children in keeping active and having fun.

Here is a wee video of the children practising warm up games:

We can’t wait till next week.
