Today in P.E. you were put into groups to begin creating your very own Latin dance …….. and what fun you had! It was smiles all around (well, nearly). There was such disappointment when we finished for the day. I am so pleased that you are showing such enthusiasm for this task as I know dancing is not everyone’s favourite thing to do.
Each group has (already) come up with the starting steps for your dance which is just amazing. Well done! We even had some of our boys showing the girls in their group some fantastic moves to include.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with next week. Here are a few photographs from today’s session.
The football team competed in the Soccer Sevens Tournament today at Ferguslie Sports Centre.
We played against four different teams and scored some wonderful team goals. It was great to see such team spirit after some difficult matches.
Well done to the boys scoring 8 goals and conceding 0!!!
This morning, we had twenty pupils from P6-7 to represent our school for the Road Race. We met at On-X in Linwood with loads of other Renfrewshire P6-7 pupils where they ran against each other for just under 2 kilometres. Not only did our 6-7 pupils behave exceptionally well, they all did their best and ran like the wind! Congratulations to our pupils and all of the other competitors who took part.
As we have been working very hard to prepare for our upcoming Victorian open day, we had a games afternoon in the gymhall which involved lots of different team games! We had a lot of fun! Hope you like our photos!
This morning we had our second fitness session where we tried out a variety of exercises for thirty seconds to warm us up (lots of red, sweaty faces later) and then worked our way around one minute stations.
The football team played against Bargarran in another entertaining match. Both teams tried to play good football and there were great individual and team performances for both schools.
Well done to Bargarran who edged victory with some excellent finishing and a thank you to our volunteers for making the game possible.
Our Latin dance lessons got a little harder this week. We had many more “latin” dance moves to master. Girls …… wow! You certainly picked them up well, as did a couple of our boys. Next week I think we will mix it up a little more to help some of our less enthusiastic boys to pick up the moves quicker.
Have a look at our photographs and see if you can remember some of the dance moves to show someone at home.
Term 2 is the term for building our fitness. On Tuesdays we will be working out with our Latin dancing and on Fridays we will be working our way around our fitness stations. Today we had the following stations:
In small groups you rotated around each station and completed each task for one minute. Some were much easier to do than others. As the weeks progress we will increase the time at each station to build up your fitness.
Most groups worked very well together and those groups that had a few niggles will need to work hard to sort them out. Tasks like these require all group members to work well together and you may need to compromise at times: very good life skills to learn.
Today Lucy L was in charge of music, Chloe S was our time keeper and Kieran was our photographer. Here are some of the many photographs he took today.
The football team played in a very exciting game against Barsail Primary today with our opposition just edging victory in an 8 goal thriller. Both teams played some great football with excellent goals and both keepers made some terrific saves.
Well done to both teams for serving up an entertaining match!
The football team started their cup campaign against Rashielea Primary today.
It was a tough game and an excellent learning experience for our young team. We tried to play entertaining football and were rewarded with a well worked goal. Well done to Rashielea Primary and we wish you all the best with your games.
