P6 Rugby festival on Tuesday.

On Tuesday we went to the rugby festival here at our school on the 3g pitch.

When we went on the astro we got into groups. My team (Girls Team 1) won 3 games and drew 1 game. It was really fun and everyone enjoyed it.

We came first and Declan the coach was really fun. We had loads of people from the high school that were referees for us so we didn’t cheat.

We had loads of fun it was fantastic.


P6B Torness Trip

P6B visited Torness Power Station this week, as part of their engineering topic.  Here are some of the memories from the trip.

This week we were on our Torness trip. We saw the control room and the reactor room  and the visitor center.   AR

In the workshop we saw a big crane that could hold twenty five tonnes  and there were three different colored floors –  red,green and black. The red floor was where you could not stand on just the workers and the black floor was also for the workers to stand on the people visiting or if your not working there  you had to stand on the green floor.  CC

We also went in the turbine room and saw a crane that could lift 110 tonnes.  And 1 turbine can make enough electricity 1.25 million houses.  JN

Sorry – no photos!  Cameras weren’t allowed!

P6B volleyball

This week P6B have been learning about how to play sitting volleyball. Sitting volleyball is where 2 teams of 6 or 5 sit on the ground and play a game of volleyball the rules are that everyone has to be sitting and the ball has to be hit into the air for a shot or you can gently pass it to your team mates. Next week we are going to learn how to pass and shoot in volleyball. The easy parts are when you can just hit the ball over the net straight away and the hard bit was when we would have to pass the ball to our team mates.

P6B’s Assembly

This week on Thursday P6B have performed their assembly about Scottish inventors. It was really good and everyone enjoyed it.

There was a inventor called Kirkpactrick who invented the bike.  So there was a bike in the performance. They also mentioned golf, rugby sevens, telephone, TV and don’t forget your own Irn Bru.

We also showed our own inventions which included a robot goalie, a pair of wings a thinker-naut, an eco friendly plastic brick maker and the fun spin.


PC Smith visits P6B

This week P6 have been talking to PC Smith about hate crime. There are 5 brackets of hate crime! Racism ,sexuality , religious, gender and disability. Being racist means you make fun  of others’ skin colour. Disability means that people may have something wrong with them BUT don’t make fun of them because of their disabilities and do not offend people because of there religion.
