Big Bird Watch


Abernyte Primary is now in it’s 10th year taking part in the RSPB’s Annual Birdwatch.

Lucy (P2) reports:

“We were watching birds. We saw crows, lots of robins and blue tits.”

Molly (P7) reports:

“Abernyte Primary School does the Big Schools Birdwatch annually. This year our teams were The Green Mossy Chicks and The Stripy Red Snakes. The people in The Green Mossy Chicks were Lucy6, Ellen, Anna and I. The people in The Stripy Red Snakes were Cara, Layla, Bea and Lucy2. This year was the 10th year Abernyte School has done the Birdwatch. Because it is the 10th year we made a big Robin and a Bluebird out of our hands.”

Gymnastics Competition


Molly reports:

“Abernyte P.S went to the schools gymnastics competition on the 9th of February 2016. At the gymnastics competition there were two teams. One of the teams did harder moves than the other team. When we got there we had to wait for the competition that was in the morning to finish.

While that was going on the more advanced team were warming up and practicing our routines. Once the competition that was going on had finished we were called up to preform our floor routine. We had to do our vault next, but we hadn’t ever done vault before so we got a little practice while everyone else was doing their floor routines. We did really well at our vault but sometimes we fell. When we were finished our vault the top three teams were announced. Unfortunately we didn’t get in the top three but we did come fifth.

While we were doing our vault the other group was warming up. Doing their routines and stretching. Then they were called up to do there floor routines and vault.”


Ellen reports:

“At Bell Sport Centre we had a gymnastics competition. We all got a routine then we practised it every week. A gymnastics coach came. She helped us. We had 2 teams: one team was in level 1 and the other team was in level 2. Layla, Bea, Anna and Lucy 2 where in level 1 and Cara, Molly, Lucy 6 and Ellen where in level 2. The level 2 team came 5th but we don’t know what place the level 1s came.  There were too many levels 1s.
