Halfway through the week already! Time passes so quickly when you’re enjoying yourselves and that’s exactly what the Primary 7 children are doing! It is such a pleasure to see all their happy smiling faces….. eager to make new friends, eager to learn and eager to meet each new challenge with enthusiasm! The range of experiences is immense! LOW ACTIVITIES (Mohawk Walk, Ropes Course, Nightline, Orienteering, Problem Solving, Archery, River Dipping, Burn Scrambling, Kayaking, Raft Building and even canoeing on Loch Ard!). HIGH ACTIVITIES (Tree Climb, Pole Climb, Crate Climb, Catwalk and Flying Fox.) and EXPLORATION ACTIVITIES (part and half day walks exploring the surrounding area including The Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, which we are so lucky to literally have on our doostep, whilst doing a wide variety of tasks to find out more about themselves, their group and their surroundings.) I think you will see why, Dounan’s Camp is truly inspirational!
Primary 7 pupils have arrived safe and sound at School Camp after a most enjoyable, scenic journey up to our destination, passing Stirling Castle and of course The Wallace Monument en route! We have unpacked, had lunch and are enjoying our picturesque location as we explore our beautiful surroundings and already participate in a wide range of outdoor activities! Fingers crossed this perfect weather continues…..
My Primary 7 pupils are all set for Dounan’s Camp in Aberfoyle! We are leaving for our adventure on Monday and shall be away until lunchtime on Friday. I shall try my best to update the blog whilst we are away, but as the signal up there is very poor, I unfortunately can make no promises! I shall, however, pass information on via East Linton Primary School. So….. WATCH THIS SPACE! (Miss Wallace)
Here is a catch up of all we have been doing this year! It has been a fantastic year and we have achieved a lot! We have had lots of fabulous opportunities to show off our many P4 talents and skills.
New Years Resolution for Miss Spinks…… Keep up to date with P4 blog!
I am looking forward to next year!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
From Miss Spinks
Last Friday the P7 class presented a fantastic assembly to the rest of the school and told us all about their school camp. We enjoyed some interesting Powerpoint presentations on all aspects of the camp and saw a DVD with footage filmed both before and after camp.
The class made up a rap, which they performed to the school. Here is the text of it:school-camp-rap-oct-09
Mrs Tennant phoned today and said that she had been soaked twice this morning! The weather has been better this afternoon and they have had beautiful sunshine. Everyone is having a great time.
Yesterday the P5 class went open canoeing on the Tyne and learned how the Vikings might have sailed their boats and carried them across the land. We did a number of problem solving activities to get the canoes on the water and then navigated a course up river on a raid to find our treasure. Here are some photos from the day.
