On Tuesday 17th February, the pupils from Abernyte Primary joined up with the pupils from Collace Primary to move and groove to “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons at the annual Day of Dance. Pupils from both schools had been practicing at individual schools and at joint rehearsals for weeks prior to the performance and had put a lot of effort into learning the dance choreographed by Mrs Holt. Both schools had recently learned about Bridge Technology, so the glow-in-the-dark dancers incorporated performances as the three different bridge structures that span the Forth into their act .
On Tuesday 17th February, the pupils at Abernyte celebrated Shrove Tuesday with a traditional pancake bake. Pupils worked co-operatively, learning hygiene, food safety and cooking skills, while also brushing up on their measuring of volume and mass. After all the cooking, when they got to taste their hard work, everyone agreed that it was flippin’ great!
On Monday 16th February, four of the P5-7 pupils took part in the Cross Country Championships at Perth Racecourse. After weeks of training our competitors ran alongside approximately 120 runners around the cross country circuit which is a distance of approximately 1 mile. Congratulations to all of our runners as every one of them managed to run the full course!
