Well done to everybody who took part in the Thursday lunchtime running club over the last two terms. It has been great to see high levels of commitment and enthusiasm. Over the last ten weeks, we have taken part in track and cross country running, based around the village green and John Muir Way. Many runners have improved their fitness and course times.
Mr Harris and Mr Ludvigsen are looking forward to restarting the club in the spring.
Rebecca “I enjoyed the African drumming and dancing. I think that African drumming can be taught to anyone.”
Daniel “I enjoyed the African drumming because it’s good to see how to get each rhythm of each song.”
Alex “I enjoyed writing the Celtic Myths because it was great to write about myths that the Celts might have believed in!”
Charlotte “I really like drawing pie charts!”
Archie “I enjoyed the orchard group because it was so much fun.”
Tom “This week it was really fun making our journey sticks because I tried to make a sword but it didn’t quite work out.”
Fearghal “I liked the food waste because it was interesting weighing the food.”
On Monday, the upper school visited Yellowcraig to take part in orienteering activities. We took part in activities to help us set and thumb the map before embarking on some bigger orienteering challenges.
Thanks to Martyn and his crew from Outdoor Education for organising such an enjoyable and educational afternoon.
The class have been very inspired by the African Drumming Project. We were mentored by Thomas, an African drummer from Ghana. He visited us on Wednesday, and brought in lots of drums for us to try out.
Lilly “I really enjoyed playing the really huge drums!! It was SO much fun.”
Rebecca “I enjoyed the African drumming. It was, like, the experience of a lifetime. You need to TRY IT!”
Craig “I feel the African drumming is a good way to express yourself.”
Daniel “It was a great experience to learn how to play the drum. Thomas was so calm.”
