Fun afternoon thanks to Ellie, Amy, Kayla and Lois

We had so much fun this afternoon. Amy, Lois, Kayla and Ellie, with help from Amy, Michele and John, had organised the most amazing afternoon. They tricked the class into thinking we were going to be doing Jolly Grammar, but instead, everyone has an invite slipped into their workbooks, for their obstacle course, water slide and chocolate and food stall!

We couldn’t have had better weather as we were met at the door, by our bossy police officers, to attempt the first of several obstacle courses. Everything went at a very fast pace and there was lots of fun in trying to complete all the amazing challenges. There were lots of refreshments too along the way.

The ice cream stall and chocolate fountain were a big hit, as was the amazing water slide. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Active Sports Day

On Monday, Jennifer Thomson organised a fantastic day for P7.
We started in the hall with team building games and then Phil Hibbert came to teach us fencing, which was really good fun.
After break we played netball outside until the rain stopped play and we went into the hall to finish off and then had a quick game of hide and seek in the forest.
In the afternoon we went down to the pitch to play football and rounders.
It was a brilliant day and everyone had a lot of fun. Thank you Jennifer and Phil.

Week 8

We have had a lovely week, with a mixture of activities.

Some of our class went on a transition visit to Sandwick Junior High School and they enjoyed the range of activities. Next week they will have their 2 full days at the school.

Everyone has been very busy making in our enterprise project making lots of items for sale next week…watch this space. They made questionnaires too and on Friday did some market research for ideas about prices and designs.

Our drama projects are coming together and we’ll start filming next week.

We were really interested to hear back from family and friends in the Nepal climate change project and we had a great discussion about what changes we thought had occurred over the last few decades – there certainly doesn’t seem to be as much snow in the winters and some of the animals that we see are different.

Thanks to Ellie, we had a really interesting end to the week. She had been given some owl pellets by a relative. Last time we looked at owl pellets we only found mouse and rat remains from the Shetland long eared owls. This time we found lots more prey items – rats, mice, voles and shrews from the Barn owl pellets.
