MEADOWMILL ATHLETICS COMPETITION

Published by under Uncategorised

On 24.05.16 p4-7 went to the Meadowmill Athletics competition. Unlike Meadowbank last year, it didn’t have protection from the weather, so every single person was FREEZING from the cold wind! The class enjoyed it though. These are the people that competed in a sport:
80m: Ziggy and Emily
150m: James and Maja
600: Jonathan and Maja
Relay: Jonathan, Thomas, Maja, Emily
Tug of war: James, Sam, Findlay, Aisla, Isla, Lily
High Jump: Jonathan, Emily
Long Jump: Thomas, Maja
Cricket Ball Throw: Ziggy, Natasha
Everyone did really well. Including the people that didn’t get to join in, they did some super cheering and supporting. Jonathan also came first in the high jump, so he got a medal – well done Jonny!
Last year Athelstaneford won the small-small schools cup. But 2016 wasn’t as victorious, although we’re still very proud of ourselves for coming 3rd.  Next year Direlton will be our rivals and this time we’re ready!!!

Orienteering Opportunities …………

There are two opportunities for your children to go orienteering on our doorstep this week.
This would also be fantastic practice for those taking part in The Scottish Schools Festival on 3rd June 2016.
East Lothian Orienteers are holding a family friendly event tonight, Wednesday the 25th May at the Lodge Grounds, North Berwick.
You can register from 6pm and start your course between 6.30 and 7.30 p.m. Cost for your child is only 50p and £2 for adults who want a run too.
The location is great for beginners as the two courses are wholly contained in the park.
Then on Saturday 28th May ELO are running an event at Yellowcraigs. You can register from 1pm and start between 1.30pm and 3pm. The courses close at 4pm.
This is a bigger event but still family friendly and in a lovely location.
The cost to enter is £2.50 for juniors who are not club members, £5 for adult non-members. You can run as an individual or a family group.
Mrs Robertson will be going along to both events.

Little and Large cooking competition

Published by under Uncategorised

At little and large cook we got put into partners, our partner was Cammy and we also had a girl called Ellen. We had to cook vegetable pastry and fruit with oats and cream for desert. There were six from law Primary in pairs and two from somewhere else and us. We got tested on the look and they tasted it when it got judged. We were not allowed in the room while it was getting judged.
I enjoyed cooking the meals and I am going to try the recipes at home.

Orienteering

Published by under Uncategorised

First we got in a bus with p6/7 from Dirleton. When we got there we had to wait in a very long queue. Every year had a different route to follow apart from p4’s who had to do the p5 route. once you had done and finished you went to a tent to see what position you came in. If you had completed the course in less than 12 minutes you got gold, if you got 15 to 25 minutes you got silver, if you got 25 minutes to 30 minutes you got bronze and if you got 30 minutes to an hour you got iron.
I enjoyed doing a proper course; however Emily and I got really mixed up. We asked for help. I would like to do it again to see if I was improving.

Orienteering

Published by under Uncategorised

We went on a trip to Vogry Park to do some orienteering. There were at least 200 or more people doing the orienteering and it was busy. We had to wait in a queue to put our bags in a tent. When we put our bags in the tent we got told what to do and we saw a man who was there when we went canoeing and also Marin he we was the instructor for when we went camping. After we got told what to do we got our dibbers and maps. We had to wait in a long queue to get the maps. After we to the maps we put the dibbers in the start line and of we went.
There were 3 different routes for P5,6 and 7. I enjoyed it although it was cold and it was quiet hard to read the map. After that we had our lunch at the park and we had time for a play.
It was fun and better than I expected. I would like to go again.

Poos from the past

Published by under Uncategorised

We did an activity called “poos from the past”. Mrs overmeer gave us fake poos made out of play dough and a sheet of paper that had information about The Romans, The Anglo Saxons and The Vikings diet. There were bits of food like bones, peas, stones, melon seeds and lemon seeds. From the evidence we had to decide which time and culture it was from. We had lots of fun and would like to do it again!!!

After school clubs

Published by under Uncategorised

We have started lots of after school clubs after school and we all really enjoyed photography. First of all we had a chat about what the themes are going to be later on.
We paired up and went outside and took photos of whatever we wanted to. Everyone took very good photos and we were all very proud of what we had managed to capture a picture of.
All the pictures were amazing and they were all different styles. Some people took pictures of flowers some people took action photos and some of the landscape. And lots of POSING!!
We’re thinking about doing mini world action shots and many more.

Photography club

Published by under Uncategorised

After school on Tuesdays a photography club is on and we take photos. It is so fun and cool. We went in a 3 Sam Findlay and Joel. I took a picture and it looks like Goil is jumping of a roof and I took another one and it looked like Joel was chucking Angus away. It would make it a little bit better if you brought your own camera.
