Primary six and seven enjoyed a performance called ‘The Journey’ by the Baldy Bane Theatre company this morning. The performance was ‘forum theatre’ which meant that the pupils were able to particiapte throughout the play and were invited to make certain decisions to determine the outcome of the scenes. The key messages of the play were all about road safety. The pupils shared a lot of great knowledge to ensure a safe outcome for all of the characters in the play.
P7 pupils had the opportunity to programme driverless model cars today . They worked in pairs using Lego MIndstorms and IPads to navigate a model New York. The pupils were highly engaged and motivated
It is always sad to say goodbye to pupils and this year has been very hard. We have thoroughly enjoyed having such a fantastic bunch of young people in the school and wish them the very best for the future.
Here’s a slideshow of some of their special moments.
Yesterday we made pancakes to practice using measuring equipment independently – electronic scales and measuring jugs – and to show we could follow instructions successfully.
We followed a recipe in small groups and Miss Henry didn’t even need to help us! It was great practice for Secondary 1 Home Economics at the Anderson High School, which lots of us are very much looking forward to.
Most importantly they tasted delicious.
Jess and Johnny (Pupil Council Vice Chair and Chair Person) were busy yesterday giving our benches a new lease of life with paint the Pupil Council bought from Frank Williamson. They particularly enjoyed wearing their overalls! 🙂
Our first stop today was at the Ratho Climbing Centre where we got to abseil and climb. It was lots of fun and so good seeing everyone challenge themselves.
We are so proud of all the young people who are behaving so well and are great company.
We had our lunch in glorious sunshine at Bannockburn before heading in doors to hear all about the Battle of Bannockburn. In groups the children then held their own battle. Once again the Scottish were victorious in “The Battle of the Bowling Club”.
We had our tea in Pizza Hut and then all enjoyed Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Today we spent the morning making pancakes and after break we went to the flower park with Sanna to do some golf putting and play short tennis. In the afternoon the pupils went to the Clickimin broch to do some sketching with Miss Birnie.
A super first day for our trip. We have spent the day at Blair Drummond Safari Park. There was so much to see and do. There were many favourites – boat rides, Zip lines and dodgems to name a few.
We arrived in Edinburgh at teatime and had a quick turn around at the hostel before heading to Cosmos for tea.
It has been a really enjoyable and busy day.
