The omens weren’t good. It started pouring with rain just as we got on the pitch. And despite a sluggish start the boys rallied fantastically well to record a creditable 2 wins out of 5 against a range of bigger schools.
Apologies from P6/7. We have not been keeping you abreast of all that is going on in the class. So here are some photos to show you what we got up to in the last few weeks. We have been working hard on our Space topic learning about the planets and how they move. And about how the moon and sun influence our day and night. Maths has been going on steadily with fractions and now starting back on more complex multiplication and division.
We tried hard to make our AR targets and most of us dud which was great. Those that missed out will be trying harder next term. The core values assembly with Stenton was loads of fun and our presentation on “Responsibility” seemed liked by lots of people. And to finish the term we crammed in more art like Movie posters about movies set in space and marbled ink space artwork.
The 4 pupils representing Innerwick were fantastic last night. Competing against 2 teams from Dunbar, 2 teams from East Linton, 2 teams from West Barns and a team from Belhaven we were joint leaders after 6 rounds. Unfortunately we were pipped at the post after the final (8th) round finishing a superb 3rd place behind the two Dunbar teams.
Well done to the 4 of you. You were a credit to the school.
We had an exciting day yesterday. First Iain Gray, the MSP for East Lothian came into class to talk to us about his job. He described the sort of things an MSP did and what a typical week was like for him. It sounded like an exciting job. It really helped us understand our Democracy topic. Then later on we had an outing to visit the RNLI down in Dunbar. This is our nominated charity for the year and we wanted to see what the station was like. We got to sit in the small lifeboat and were told all about the dangers of the water and how to keep ourselves, and others, safe around water………………………………… and we also got to see Sammy the Seal!
The football team did the school proud again in the tournament at Hallhill with two wins , two draws and two narrow defeats in their six matches. And as usual, we had to play against much bigger schools (with much taller P7’s!!)
Well done boys. Great football skills and equally great sportsmanship.
