Ten Pin Bowling Treat

After our weekly swimming lessons on Tuesday 3rd May, Mrs Gibb met us at the swimming and we walked to the bowling as a treat for being part of the Cracking Calendar Company.

Pro Bowl - Airdrie

We arrived at the bowling about 10.30am but the bowling wasn’t open yet. Oops a bit too keen!!

A bit too early P5!!!

We set up camp outside and ate our snack. The sun was starting to peek through the clouds but it was quite windy and our hair was wet because we came straight from swimming.

Tucking into our snack. Mmmm!!

After about ten minutes one of the bowling staff came and opened the door. We were so excited! We were organised into teams of 6 per lane.

Teaming up in lane Two

We collected the bowling balls and filled all of the racks. Some of the balls were really heavy so we decided not to put these on the rack. The blue ball was the lightest – about 6kg- but there wasn’t enough of them for everyone so we had to share them between all of the lanes. The green ball was the one that most of us used for our ten pin bowling. It was the second lightest – about 8kg.

Then Mrs Wallace, Mrs Rawlinson and the  p1-2 class arrived and filled up the rest of the lanes. There were lots of parent helpers there to help the little ones. Gemmas’s Step Dad was one of the helpers. He helped the wee ones to lift the bowling ball on to the slide. We didn’t use the slide because we could manage to throw the bowling ball, but we did have the side rails up to stop the balls landing in the gutter all the time.

Lanes one to four with the side rails raised.
We put our names into the computer and now it was time to have some bowling fun!!!
Bowling is thirsty work so we had a wee break to get a drink of juice. We had the choice of orange or blackcurrant. It was very refreshing.
The competition was on to see who would be the winning team. It was boys versus girls.
The winning team was the boys who scored 581 points. Well done boys. 😀
We had a great day at the bowling and we had more fun to look forward to in the afternoon. BELLY DANCING!!!

Going Bowling

On May the third we are going bowling with primary 1-2 straight after swimming. It will be a blast.We earned this treat because we were part of  The Cracking Calendar Company  and we raised lots of money. This was part of our enterprise this year. We enjoyed working with Mrs Wallace and the P1-2 class to create posters advertising the sale of the calendars. We will post some pictures from our bowling fun soon!!!
