Primary six and seven pupils spent a wet and cold morning at Meadowbank for the Inter Schools Sports yesterday (Wednesday 30th May). The competition was tough but all our pupils were very successful in their individual and team events, with many getting through the heats and into the finals of events!
Many of our participants also achieved personal bests! Our relay teams were very successful with two teams making it to the finals! The P6 girls were placed 5th overall in the relay event and the P7 boys placed 6th in the finals!
Our school supporters were fantastic and really helped to cheer the teams on! Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to the parents who were able to come and support! It was much appreciated!
Many thanks to all of you who managed to come to see our assembly and have a look around our area. The children were delighted to have you and we hope they made you proud.
If you missed out (or were unable to see from your vantage point in the hall!!) please have a look at some photographs of the work we have been doing of late.
We worked in groups to:
· research minibeasts using books and laptops
· create minibeasts by arranging colourful gym equipment.
· investigate spirals and natural materials
· solve number problems
As you know, the children had compiled a list of three possible charities to donate the café money to. When we voted, the results were so close that we have decided to split the money equally between Oranje Diamant, our link school in South Africa, The Sick Kids and Oxfam (for safe water). Each will receive around £50.
Once again, many thanks for your support.
