P3 & P3/4 Drama – I Wish I Was A Mountain

P3 and P3/4 recently had an exciting time when Shonagh Davidson our Drama Specialist came to visit.

The theme was ‘I Wish I Was A Mountain’ and  the children explored a story about what happened when people did not look after the area they lived in.

The children enjoyed the mime and other drama experiences together and you can see the fun they had in the Slideshow below.

Lego Interview – Newshounds

Newshounds split in to groups to interview different clubs  and our group chose to visit the lego club.

There was lego all over the tables for people to build with and there is a different theme every week, and the week we went the theme was weather.

Lots of people were building clouds and lightning. A lot of people said they chose the club because they had lego at home but sometimes they didn’t have tons of time to play with it.

Tommy said that he liked playing with people he didn’t normally play with. People also said their favourite things they’d made were mini beasts (which was a theme from a different week) and making their names out of lego which i think was on the first week.

Last week we interviewed the club outdoor learning and got some info about the club.  We went out side and asked some questions about what they do and here are some of the answers…

Sandy F – I picked this club because I like the outdoors.
Cameron- My favourite thing I have done in this club so far was Sammy the Snake.
Charlie P- This has been my favourite club so far.
Josh – I love this club.   
Jamie- My favourite was Bomb Disposal.   
Liam- Yes we always go out side.

When we were there we saw them playing Sammy the Snake. You get in a circle and someone goes in the middle and spins the rope around and they all have to jump over it…

We think they enjoyed it!

Interesting Science

Newshounds visited to the science club to ask some questions about what they were doing.

When we were asking questions about the club the club teacher (Mrs MacIver) let us make what they were making to get the full experience!

The Science club was busy making paper planes and attaching paper circles onto straws. The straws were attached to the top of the paper planes. Later, Science Club had a competition to see who could fly them well.

Theo from P4s favourite experiment was using water mixed with cleaning soap. He said they used a straw to blow into the mixture to make bubbles into bubbles. (He said it was fun)

Emily T in P2 learned to make flying wind contraptions.

Harriot in P5 said she enjoyed making her contraption fly.

Crafty Cooking

Newshounds went to the cooking club to see what they were up to. The pupils had made pizza, cookies,  scones and bread.

The majority of the pupils said they had enjoyed the club. None of the pupils got bored and said that cooking was a lot of fun.

The pupils said the the food that they made was pretty good.

A few of the pupils have cooked at home before.

Caring Community

Newshounds went to go and see the Community Club to see what they have been up to at the Day Centre. They all looked like they were having good fun with the old people by playing games and they all looked really happy. When they are there they usually play board games or talk about stuff to get to know each other. They said that they never get bored because they get entertained and have fun.

They love being in the Community Club, because it’s really good fun to see old people have a good time as they say it makes them think back about their childhood. The club has been the pupils favourite one so far and they’re happy that they chose it.

The club members chose it because they thought it would be fun and their friends who did it last time said it was great fun.

The Day Centre Members loved it when a choir came to perform in front of them, and they also said that they love playing games with the pupils.

The newshounds pupils who reported that group had so much fun seeing what it’s like there and would definitely recommend it.

Crafty Community

Our reporting team  went to the Community Club to interview them. The club was organised by Miss Shepherd and we asked a few questions to see if they could answer them. We went to the day-centre. We saw them play musical bingo and we asked them stuff like:

Did they enjoy themself and would you want to stay longer if they could?

They said they had really enjoyed the club and would be annoyed when the  club finished.

We enjoyed interviewing the members of the Community Club.

Simple Science

The Newshounds went to the science club to report about what they were up to.

When we went there they were making the ink in the pen run together with Mrs MacIver. I had a shot of it and it was really fun. Lots of people said mine was really good.

One person said that they looked like a planet. We asked them if they did any other experiments and they said yes so we asked them what other ones they made. They made some slime and a lava lamps and some other stuff that they enjoyed!

Everybody seemed to really enjoy it. I might do the science club next.
