Innerwick Primary School produced a fantastic performance to claim 2nd place in the Small Small Schools competition at Meadowmill today. Lots of excellent individual performances to claim firsts, seconds and thirds and a superb all round team effort.
This has been the highest place finish the school has achieved. Well done to all the competitors and supporters.
This afternoon we enjoyed a fantastic performance of drumming, singing and dancing from the Kakatsitsi Master Drummers from Ghana and the Kalahari Desert Bushmen dancers from Namibia.
We then all took part in dancing and drumming workshops before coming together to sing an African song.
The Innerwick school football team put in another great performance going down narrowly 5-4 to our near neighbours West Barns. Some great football was played by both teams and the match was closely contested throughout. Well done boys.
We are so happy that our Nature Play sessions have finally started! Yesterday we enjoyed a lovely, sunny morning exploring the small woodland in the school grounds.
This week we had fun hunting for mini-beasts (we actually found two caterpillars!), putting on a puppet show, making mud soup and endless cups of “daisy” tea, before enjoying snack in our den. We really enjoy these weekly sessions where we can play and learn together in the outdoor environment. Thank you to all the parents who have kindly offered to help with the sessions in the coming weeks.
