Buddies PE

We popped along to our buddies PE session today and helped them do the Olympic obstacle that we did on Monday.

Health week in PE

As part of Health Week, the pupil council asked for an Olympic themed obstacle course.  Before starting we discussed what the Olympics were and this years Games in Paris in July.  The circuit was a variety of activities to develop skills that all sports people need,  including agility, coordination, balance, changes of height and direction.  By the end of the lesson, the pupils had also worked there stamina.

P7 – Activities Week

We enjoyed many activities last week including samba band time, ultimate dodgeball, Harry Potter science and a quiz, a trip to Michael’s Wood, an egg drop STEM challenge, bouncy castle, mini golf, the playpark and a trip to the beach.  Miss Sprinkles ice cream was delicious too!  We used our communication meta skills as well as critical thinking, initiative and collaboration.  It was lots of fun!


Buddy Gym

This week we joined our buddies in their gym lesson.  This was the start of their rackets activities block.  We helped them by feeding the ball for them to stop the ball and hit it back.   We also had a shot of the bats, with our buddies feeding to us.

Numeracy – Measurement Activity

As part of our work on measurement this term, we headed outdoors to estimate and measure the capacity of various objects.  We used our collaborative, communication, curiosity, sense-making and critical thinking meta skills.


World War 2 Playground Games

As part of our topic this term, we’ve been exploring some of the games children might have played during WW2.  These include, hopscotch, marbles, five stones, skipping, dominoes and four squares.  We used our collaborative and communication meta skills.



STEM Success!

Well done to our P6/P7 STEM club who are 2024 YESC Regional Club of the Year runners up and 2024 STEM challenge winners!


We have started the term doing athletics.  We have done running, throwing and jumping events.  The class are very good at distance running, showing great effort and good pacing skills.  Here we are practicing hurdling.

Ukulele Open String Jam

This term we have started of our learning journey in music by finding out about the history of the ukulele and how it compares and differs to other stringed instruments. We have learned how to hold the instrument in the best playing position, the string names and also different ways of playing the strings – plucking and strumming. We have learned about the musical staff and how to read music notation and in the video clip below, you can see us playing along with a piece called ‘Open String Jam’.

We have also been composing for ukulele and the photo below shows our class composition using music notation. Our next steps will be to learn to play our composition with an accompanying backing track. We will then be moving on to learn about improvising using the open strings and working on our finger positions to change the pitch of the note.



Some of the Primary 7 pupils chose to attend the STEM event (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) at Scalloway this week.  They had a very busy day participating in various workshops including engineering, drones, app design and circuits.
