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.
One of the more unusual weeks for P6/7. With bikeability sessions on every day for the P6s first and then the P7s, normal lessons were difficult to fit in. And of course we had the fabulous African drummers and dancers in on Monday afternoon as well. However the P7s managed to fit in their maths assessments for Dunbar Grammar while the P6s caught up with AR, organised all the libraries in the school and managed to get all the vegetable, sapling and flower beds in the grounds tidied up and weeded. And of course our personal projects were started up in earnest.
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.
With the term back in full swing it is time for a wee photo catch up. All the usual work hard work has been going on maths, reading, writing and our America topic is really going full steam ahead!
However on top of all that we have had a lady in to class to talk about the Smoke Free initiative, the Big Spring clean, a cheerleading session led by Dunbar Grammar, the World of Work marketplace, a sunlight photography course and of course rehearsals for our section of the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations coming up at the village hall.
Another excellent week for P6/7. We really concentrated on our science “Materials” topic this week with lots of experiments. Our Big Writing focused on this as well as we learned how to write a science report. And we finished our Materials posters. Despite the emphasis on the science we still managed to fit in our rugby, data handling in maths (although annoyingly mathletics seemed to be having technical difficulties), spelling and all the usual stuff.
