The whole school gathered together in the playground this morning and had fun taking part in Boogie Friday dancing! Everyone agrees that the Sport Relief week has been a great success. Well done Aberlady!
This afternoon Primary 1 and Primary 7 continued their Sport Relief activities by practising ball skills together. Primary 6 joined in as well. There was a lot of turn taking, teamwork and co-operation to be seen in the playground. Well done everyone!
Many thanks to our P.7 buddies for encouraging and helping the P.1 boys and girls to have a go at hula hooping! A great time was had by all!
Today was the start of our Sport Relief week where we are embracing the ‘Daley Challenge’ (that’s Tom Daley – not a spelling mistake!!) Each day every class will do an active challenge instead of the Daily Mile – today was Hula Hoop Monday. In addition to class activities, there was lots of hula hooping going on with our super energetic children at break!
On Friday the whole school challenge will be ‘Boogie Friday’ when everyone will dance together at the end of break time (and I mean everyone!). During the week some of the Inclusion Committee, plus other willing P7s are dancing on the stage at break time to teach everyone Friday’s dance. Such was the enthusiasm today, the dancing went on at lunch time as well! Thank you to those who joined in – you’ll be experts by Friday!
Of course Sport Relief is about raising money. Wristbands are for sale each break time for £1 and we have asked everyone to bring in a donation for our Boogie Friday – on Friday!
Primary 1 welcomed their final “World of Work” visitor this morning. Tina told the children all about the Stagecoach Performing Arts School which helps children to become more confident and develop lifelong skills through singing, dancing and drama. Some of these skills include listening, concentrating, watching and trying out ideas. The boys and girls had fun playing games with Tina and trying on some of the costumes too. Thank you so much, Tina, for giving us such a fun-filled morning. What a fantastic way to end a very successful “World of Work” week!
This morning Primary 1 had three more “World of Work” visitors! Louise talked about her job as a psychologist and how she helps people to settle their thoughts. She told us that it is very important to look after our feelings and that sleep gives our brains a chance to rest. Then she took us on a “Magic Carpet” adventure which was very relaxing! Our next visitor, Margaret, told us all about her husband’s decorating business. The children were very interested to see the safety clothes that Kenny wears and especially the long handled brush that he uses to reach very high ceilings! Our last visitor was Arlene and she told the boys and girls all about her work as an anaesthetist. She explained how she helps to make people feel comfortable and safe during operations and how she helps when babies are being born. Many thanks to our visitors for giving us such an interesting morning exploring the “World of Work”.
