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 it was the turn of those on Nerdy Nuggets (consisting of Alex, Becca, Carla, Evie, Hannah and Lucien) to share their achievements with the rest of the class.
Today Carla shared with us some work that she had been doing at home based on our WW1 topic. Using the learning that we have been doing in class Carla created a diary of a woman during the period of WW1. It contained information of life at home, stories she had heard from the trenches and the impact of the loss of family members too. Well done Carla!
Hannah told us all about her Grade 2 piano exam she sat earlier in the week. Some of the tasks she had to achieve were – play 3 pieces of music, accurately read and play a new piece and demonstrate her ability to follow a beat. We look forward to hearing how successful she was in the coming weeks. Good luck Hannah!
Lucien and Alex talked us through their WW1 PowerPoint presentation they have been completing in class. We have been concentrating on a specific area of WW1 each week and the pupils have been updating this information onto a PowerPoint presentation. There is some really interesting information being shared here boys, well done!
Well done Nerdy Nuggets. Again, there have been some great achievements shared this week. I am also enjoying hearing all of the information that the pupils have been finding out about their personal connections to WW1.
Unfortunately, I missed the Achievement Talks last week, but Miss Budge left me some details of what was shared.
This week it was the turn for those in The Cool Unicorn Tractor group (consisting of Hayden, Daniel, Robert, Amy, Ronan and Isabel).
Isabel treated the class to a tune on her fiddle, she has been working well in her lessons and her confidence is building. Well done Isabel, it can be a little nerve-wracking standing in front of the class playing an instrument but I hear that you did a lovely job.
Hayden shared his excitement at moving up a swimming group in class swimming with Mrs. Smith. He spent the October holidays abroad with his family, where a lot of the time was spent playing in the pool. He thinks that this may have helped to improve his confidence in the pool. Mrs. Smith was very impressed with your improvements when you returned after the October break. Well done Hayden.
Amy also shared a swimming achievement with the rest of the class. She has successfully managed to master the art of performing a handstand flip in the swimming pool. This is great news as Amy has been suffering with an injury in recent swimming lessons, so it’s great to see that she is feeling more confident in the pool. Well done Amy.
We look forward to hearing more from our next group on Friday. Well done Cool Unicorn Tractors – sorry I have no photo’s to share this week.
