On Tuesday afternoon we all made Ojo de Dios ( gods eyes ) which were the aztecs version of dream catchers.
We had to weave them. First we stuck two lolly sticks together with blue tack in a cross shape. Then we had to get coloured wool and wrap it around the sticks in a complicated way. (I don’t know how to explain!!!!!)
We are doing aztecs this term for our topic so that is why we did them.
We are doing them at golden time in 10 minutes!!!!!
I love weaving now! I do it the whole time at home, its one of my favourite things to do. We made Gods Eyes (Ojo de Dios) I LOVE Them! They are when you wrap wool around lolly pop sticks in a certain way they are so much FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!

On Wednesday the 5th of November Izzy Swanson came into our class to go through the script of the Christmas Show we are performing in about 5 weeks. I really enjoyed reading through the script for the show. I am Ollie Berry, a presenter of the Outstanding Contribution To Christmas Award show that is in the play. He always says jokes that everyone has already heard, therefore he sulks for half the show!

This week p5,6,7 did Circuit training in P.E we had 8 stations sit ups, skipping, running on the spot, hula hoop, squats, burpees, star jumps and press ups. We went around all the stations one time but before we went around the stations we played some mini games.
I think it was very tyring I found skipping the hardest I think I improved on my sit ups and am exited for next week.

The P7s got their Young Leader certificates this week. Well done!
In groups, they will all have the chance to run some lunchtime sessions where they will teach other classes some of the games they have learnt.
On Thursday 25th September, we organised a fun night to raise money for the Tingwall Hall refurbishment. We had lots of different stalls such as Guess How Many Sweets, Play Your Cards Right, Guess Teddy’s Birthday, Tombola, Hook Football and many more!
We managed to raise £968.59. The treasurer from the Tingwall Hall came to collect the money and we presented her with a massive cheque!
Our topic this term is China. So we learnt some basic Mandarin. We learnt how to write and say numbers 0-10 and hello.
We practised by painting, playing snap and testing each other on whiteboards.
Gary said “It was fun and good to learn another language”
Chrissie and Tom both said “I enjoyed it and painting the numbers”
Welcome to our first blog post!
On Tuesday 7th October, we had a visit from Mr Clarke from the Scottish Parliament Outreach. He told us facts about the Scottish Parliament and how it happened. He told us things about Devolution. We got to answer questions and vote using a Powervote gadget.
We got into teams and elected a party leader. There were 6 different political parties: Sporty Party, Animal Welfare Party, Save the Earth Party, Computer Party, Music Party and School Party. We had to create our party manifesto and promises, then the party leaders made a speech in the class. We then voted and the Sporty Party and Animal Welfare Party won!
We then debated about whether schools should be 4 days a week. Kyle was our Presiding Officer. He called out people to speak by saying “I call …..”. He banged his gavel at the end when the motion had passed.
We passed our law deciding that school should only be 4 days a week!
