This week we had 5 members of the class sharing their achievements with us.
Isabel told us about her success in finally landing a front flip on her trampoline. She has been practicing for a while now and was thrilled to share her success with the class. Although she doesn’t always successfully land on her feet she is happy to say that she’s getting more confident at it. Well done Isabel!
Abi built on a previous achievement talk this week. She was proud to share that she had learnt how to do a tumble turn push off in her swimming. This is a big step for Abi in building her skills to hopefully compete for the swimming club in the future. Keep it up Abi.
Kelsi demonstrated her abilty to walk in the bridge position, she can then go up and down the wall again (whilst remaining in the bridge position!!) This was impressive to watch, I wish I was that flexible! Well done Kelsi!
Isaiah was proud to share the success of the school football team in the recent triangular sport event. Dunrossness successfully won both of their games, pulling it back from being behind at half time – a real team effort from all involved. Isaiah also shared his success at the local climbing wall, explaining how although it was a little scary at times it was also great fun. Well done!
Ellie shared her excitement that her family were going to start building their own house in the very near future! She is very excited to be getting her own room. Another blessing is that she will not have to leave her family and friends who live nearby as the new house will be built in the field next to her current home. We look forward to hearing all about the developments as the build progresses.
Thank you to all those sharng their achievements. The pupils are all gaining confidence with their presentation skills through these talks and it’s fantastic for us all to hear them sharing something that they are proud of inside and outside school. Well done P5/6
Today we took advantage of the beautiful weather and used the multicourt to cement our recent French learning. The pupils competed in a game of dictation.
They had to run to the opposite side of the court to read a French phrase, try to memorise it and repeat to their awaiting team members – correct spelling and pronunciation was key as they later found when peer assessing their efforts in class.
The pupils really enjoyed the activity and are looking forward to playing it again in the future – next time some will focus on the attention to detail and not just the speed.
