Burravoe Primary School

Active Schools


P5, P6 and P7 went to Active Schools Sports. We woke up early to get to school. When we got to school we wrote our names on our water bottles. Jenifer took Charlotte, Mia and Kerry; we were going to meet Melissa and Leah at the ferry.  We got on the bus with Cullivoe and Mid Yell School. We waited for the ferry to come because arrived early; Charlotte and Melissa sat next to each other, Kerry and Leah sat next to each other and Mia sat at the back. The ferry took 20 minutes over the other side (Toft).  It took 40 minutes to get to Lerwick ( where Active School was being held); It is being held in the leisure centre called The Clickamin.

When we got to Clickamin we found out which group we were in, Charlotte and Mia (were in Brunei), Leah and Melissa (were in Jamaica) and Kerry (was in Scotland). There were 6 teams; Jamaica, Canada, Scotland, Jersey, Brunei and Shetland. We went to get changed quickly!

Team Brunei

First we played Balls; Charlotte and Mia went down the Balls court. Mia and Charlotte picked up 2 brown heavy balls. We had about 6 goes, It was really good fun!

Next we played hockey, we did little warm ups like moving the ball around and keeping it away from people who would knock your ball into the wall. We also played a real game of hockey, but the instructor shouted a number and then we could go and play.

Team Jamaica

We played Rugby first; We played Bulldog which is kinda like catchy game, were you take of the tags which was wrapped around our waist.

Next it was Athletics; first we ran to the bounce board and bounced off the board. Next they put the plastic  hurdles in, we had to jamp over the hurdles while running.

After Dinner we did played balls. We roll the ball on the bowling green.

The last activity was hockey. We held the hockey stick properly. Then we went in groups and practice dribbling.

The winner, who got the most points was Jamaica with 113 points! They got a water bottle that had Glasgow 2014.
