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.
Our topic is water and today we went to the Museum to learn how people washed their clothes long ago.
We pretended we were in the olden days and used a washboard, brush, soap and dolly to wash the Museum’s dirty tea towels 🙂 What a fun we had!
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.
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.
