There was lots of excitement in the school today as everyone is getting ready for their holidays.
The last day of term also brings some sadness as we have to say cheerio to the P7 pupils. We have loved watching them all grown in to the wonderful young people they have become.
We hope that they go on and achieve all their dreams. Enjoy watching some of their journey over the years.
Have a look at how much fun our Primary 7 pupils had on their recent school trip to Edinburgh.
Well that’s us all safely on the boat heading home after four fun filled days!
Yesterday afternoon we spent the afternoon at the Museum of Flight – learning all about different aircrafts and carrying out a number of different interactive activities.
Today, everyone has enjoyed spending the rest of their money. Primark was a big hit!
Today began with a great walk to the Edinburgh Castle. It has stayed nice and dry for us all day. We enjoyed a walk around the castle before heading to Camera Obscura, where we had lots of fun!
After lunch we set off for Laser Quest, where everyone showed their competitive side. Mr Sandison was the winner!
We ate in Mr Basari’s, probably over indulging again! The more competitive games at Ten Pin Bowling. It was lovely to watch everyone having so much fun 🙂
After a quick shot at the amusements we headed back to the Hostel for a wash and an early bed before a 0700 start tomorrow.
Monday 10 June was a busy day. After arriving safely in Aberdeen we headed for Blair Drummond. We enjoyed beautiful sunshine while the pupils had fun playing and viewing the different animals.
After the sea lion show and a quick bite to eat we headed for the Birds of Prey Show. Unfortunately this was cut short due to rain and the ray did not seem to want to stop!
We arrived safely at the hostel and after settling in we headed to Cosmos for a huge feed!!
We rounded off our night with a walk to the top of Carlton Hill.
All our young people have had a great night’s sleep and are now all set for day 2
35 Primary 7 pupils set sail last night for Aberdeen. After a very calm crossing they have arrived safely in Aberdeen and are now enroute to Blair Drummond Safari Park.
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.
We hope that the following clip will allow you to see the wide variety of activities we took part in and the fun that we had!
Each term, Primary 7N and Primary 7S are mixed into cooperative learning groups to carry out research projects. This term, we started off with some team building activities to get to know each other a little better. Groups were tasked with building a tall, stable, strong tower using only masking tape and newspapers. Here are some pictures of the building in action!
