Yesterday Primary 1,2,3 and 4 took part in an exciting African drumming workshop. The children enjoyed a performance of traditional African music and then took part in three workshops which included dancing, singing and drumming. At the end of the afternoon the three groups gathered together and performed to each other. It was a truly amazing experience for everyone!
This morning the nursery and Primary 1 had fun at a teddy bears’ picnic in the Wood of Wonder. The children went on a bear hunt and took part in some teddy bear problem solving activities. The children also enjoyed a little fruit picnic and sang songs in the sunshine. Everyone had lots of fun and agreed that it was a very successful Wonderful Wednesday.
Yesterday Primary 1 enjoyed a wonderful day at the Scottish Seabird Centre. The visit was split into three parts which included learning about sea creatures in the classroom, visiting the Discovery Centre and taking part in a “Rockpool Ramble”. The children were exemplary ambassadors for Aberlady Primary School! They participated with enthusiasm and displayed good manners and cooperation at all times. The boys and girls were able to apply their knowledge of safety on the beach during the outdoor session very effectively as well. The most popular activities of the day were controlling the cameras in the Discovery Centre and exploring the rockpools. Best of all, though, was when the children spotted four dolphins out at sea! It certainly was a day to remember. Many thanks to Anna and Reshmi who came along to help us and especially to Andrew, the Education Officer, for making the day so fascinating.
While hillwalking on Wednesday one group spotted an adder. One group were raft building and thought it was funny to tip Miss Salmon over and leave her stranded, she saw the funny side too! Our children needed to be woken this morning just before 8am, we do have some tired children. Food is still aplenty and all are enjoying the huge portions and cooked breakfast. This morning the campers awoke to t- shirt weather, a stark contrast to arrival day. Tonight is the disco!
It was another wet and soggy day but it did not hold back any of our pupils taking part and enjoying what was on offer. Last night they worked in groups for the egg challenge, Farmers Den game and snakes & ladders (games with a twist!)
Food has been overflowing and our pupils are ‘filling their boots’ with shepherds pie, chicken and bacon rolls.
All were fast asleep much quicker last night.
All arrived safely to heavy rain. After taking part in crate climbing, archery, nightline and burn walking which was more like a swim than a walk we have happy but very muddy children. It took a while to get to sleep and most woke very early, this is the norm. By Thursday they will be asleep by 9pm! Despite nerves about dorm and activity groupings we can report that all have settled REALLY well.
