Buddy Trip to the Woods

If you go down to the woods today…you’ll get very wet!

We had a lot of WET fun in the woods today. It was P1s penultimate visit and we went along with them for lots of free play fun. We looked for bugs, jumped in wet leaves, squeeeeezed through branches in trees, made spider webs from ropes, drank hot chocolate/tea/hot juice and got very wet. We loved every second and left feeling very content.

Thank you to our buddies for having us along, you all know SO much about the woods and how to keep safe in there. Thank you also to Mrs Haines and the parent helpers for their organising and support (and to Mrs Dunthorne for kitting us out last minute with waterproof clothing and shoes…).

Police Drugs Talk

Today we had PC Elliot in to talk to us all about substance misuse and the side of the law. It was really interesting and he told us real life stories. Cameron and Matthew also got searched and were found carrying drugs for own use and for dealing. We found out about how the police can search someone, the different sentences and what happens afterwards. We got to ask some questions and look through the ‘drugs boxes’ he took. Thank you to PC Elliot for his time.

Spending our Profits

Photos don’t do the fun we had today justice.

Today we spent some of our Burns Supper profits. We voted on what we wanted to with the money and decided upon a trip to Infinity Trampoline Park followed by a Domino’s FEAST! As we all wore out leavers hoodies, we got extra jump time for FREE which was amazing. We had loads of fun, and even managed to get Clare, Wendy and Miss Morgan in the foam pit!

Afterwards, we devoured a huge Domino’s feed and even got a treat (ice-cream, juice or sweetie) afterwards.

Unfortunately the weather meant we didn’t get to Whin Park but we enjoyed some time being together and using our Chromebooks, writing stories, drawing and being on the Sphero robots this afternoon.

Thank you to all who helped today and for all those who attended our Burns Supper!

Highland Rugby Club Rugby Sessions

For the last three Wednesdays P7 contributed to Highland Rugby by taking a class on rugby. We started off by playing rugby style games eg (get the ball in the basket ), then we played a lot of hoik ball which the teams were boys vs girls and then in our last week we played proper tag rugby. It has been a lot of fun and we will be going to a rugby festival with other schools next week.

P7 And P6 Road Safety Visit

On the 13th of March we did a road safety workshop on how to stay safe on the road. They did an interactive play as well testing our knowledge on road safety. Overall P6 and P7 found the workshop funny at some parts and interesting. Remember to keep safe on the roads and pavements. They showed us how far it would take a car travelling at 30mph in the perfect conditions to stop. It was shocking!
