Sports Day

Thank you Mrs J Smith for another fantastic Sports Day!  Mrs Smith puts in a huge amount of work to ensure a very smoothly run day!

It was great to see the bairns enjoy a day at the pitch, cheering and encouraging each other.  So many happy, smiling faces – it was great to see!  Even the odd spot of rain and the slightly breezy conditions didn’t dampen their enthusiasm.

Every year I am so impressed by the bairns – they all try their best and for some of them I know it is not easy!  Still, they give things a go and everyone supports them.  This is seen most in the Round the Pitch race where everyone finishes – a special well done to Ms Scanlan!

Thanks to Ruth and Michelle for being star parent helpers today – we missed you Charlotte!  Thanks to all the spectators, the staff and most importantly the bairns for exceeding expectations once again!

One pupil did say that the best bit was the lunch in the hall – really good food and you got loads!  Thanks to our canteen ladies!

Co-operative Learning

On the first day of term, 26th October, we had a whole school co-operative learning session.  There were over 100 children in the hall working in co-operative groups from their house teams.  The subject this time was bullying.  Each person had to think up a different type of bullying and share it – by throwing paper snowballs!  Great fun was had by all and most of the children in the school think bullying is hitting, kicking and punching.  Other types were mentioned too.  In the coming months we will be working together to stop bullying of any kind at Dunrossness School.
