Back from Kilbowie

Well primary 5
that is me back from Kilbowie. I carried out an audit of my bruises and so far have counted 17!!! I have to say, every bruise was worth it. It was an AMAZING experience and the primary 7’s have been fantastic this week. The children enjoyed getting to know the other P7 class from New Monklands and have made some new friends. This will help in the transtition from primary to secondary school.

The other three schools that were with us at Kilbowie were Firpark, Pentland and Drumpark. The children from Chapelside and New Monklands didn’t get to know these children as well because they were in different activity groups, but during free time they enjoyed using the table tennis, table football and other activities in the games room together.

Most of the schools also got together on the last night for the disco and created some super moves on the dance floor.

Miss Tierney, Mrs Reid, Mrs Grier and I also danced the night away. I even slipped on the floor and fell right onto my bottom (of course I made out it was all part of my routine). I don’t think anyone believed me though.

I have had a very relaxed night with my family and I can’t wait to put my head on my own pillow tonight.

I am really looking forward to seeing my lovely p5’s on Monday. I hear you have all been working hard this week. Well done!!!!

I will post more pictures of the Kilbowie Adventures tomorrow so pop back and have a look. Remember if you leave a comment about any of the pictures don’t use the names of the children (this is one of our blogging rules and it is a very important one)

Cant wait to see you. 😀 😀

Kilbowie Adventures – Day 4 am – Rock climbing with Group 9 –

My Kilbowie adventure continues today with a rock climb. I was with group 9 and they were fantastic. They really pushed themselves and were able to achieve something they didn’t think they could.

After the rock climb there was some time left to explore on the beach. One of the children found a clam and lots of interesting looking shells and pebbles. The tide was out so the children had to run quite far before they reached the edge of the water.

Getting ready to ROCK!

Kilbowie Adventures – Day 2 – pm Skiing – Group 11

Well Primary 5

My Kilbowie adventures are continuing and today I have been on a gorge walk, a rope adventure and skiing. Before I came to Kilbowie I was most looking forwards to doing the Skiing.

I have to tell you primary 5, Miss Docherty is NOT a natural on the ski slopes, but I gave it my best and had so much fun doing it. I was a bit of a danger to others on the slopes because I couldn’t do any turns and I couldn’t stop.!!!!

After knocking a few children over I decided that I was a bit dangerous on skis. Lots of people were relieved when I took my skis off!!

Kilbowie Day 2 am – Gorge Walking

Gorge Walking with Group 5 and Kenny

My first activity today was gorge walking with group 5. The children in this group were really well behaved and all of them really enjoyed this activity. We travelled on a bus for about half an hour to get to the gorge with our wet suits, waterproof suits and helmets on. We walked up the gorge together working as a team to help each other get past the tricky parts.

When we reached the top of the gorge, the water wasn’t deep enough to jump in so we climbed up on to a big rock and had to slide into the water. It was FREEZING and gave me a bit of a fright. Some of the children were a bit nervous but I was so proud when they decided to give it a go. It was superb!!!



I hope you enjoy the pictures!!!

First Day in Kilbowie

Hi Primary 5

I hope you have had a brilliant day today. I have had a very exciting and exhausting day!!

On the journey to Kilbowie we stopped off at ‘The Green Welly’ to stretch our legs. What a super name and logo!

During the journey we passed by some breathtaking scenery. I noticed that on lots of the signs it said

failte’ gu – Does anyone know what this means?

We took part in a fantstic activity called ‘night line’. We were blindfolded and had to put our trust in each other in order to navigate around a course. It was really tricky (Miss Tierney and I took ages – but we were very proud that we finished!).

We were so dirty after our night line adventure that we had to be hosed down! After our hosing down I realised that my wellies were firmly stuck on my feet. Luckily Courtney helped me to prise them off!!

Stuck to my boots!!!!

Tomorrow I will be going gorge walking and ski-ing. I will post an update to let you know how things are going and post some more pictures of our Kilbowie adventures.

Miss Docherty is going to Kilbowie

Hi my Brilliant Bloggers

I am just about to go and get my bag packed for Kilbowie. Hopefully I won’t forget anything important!!! I am looking forward to taking part in all of the different activities with the P7’s and Miss Tierney. I think we are going to have lots of fun. The thing I would like to try the most during my week at Kilbowie is the ski slopes. I have never tried this before and I think it will be quite challenging but I can’t wait to have a go.

I am hoping that we get some mild weather as I am not planning on packing wellies!!!!

I hope that you have a fun week with Mrs O’Hanlon.

Don’t forget –
