We collected lots of cardboard boxes to make our castles. We worked in groups of 4 and each group created their own castle. We stuck them together with tape to make the different parts of the castle and then we painted them.
Everyone wanted to take the castles home so to make it fair we decided to have a lucky dip and the winner in each group got to take the castle home.
Our winners were Ollie, Caleb, Catelynn, Jackson ,Zander and Sophie and everyone in the class was very happy for them!
Here are some of our thoughts about our castle creating:
It was fantastic fun -Mylie
It was fun because we didn’t know what our finished castle would turn out like.-Alex
I have been playing with the castle at home with my lego characters-Ollie
It was really fun working with my team to build the castle.-Aaron
I loved making it because we had to problem solve to decide how we were going to make the different parts. -Anna
I have been trying to build a copy of the castle with my lego -Zander
I have been playing with the castle using my figures at home -Sophie
Sometimes things didn’t work and we needed to be resilient and try a different way-Zachariah
26 pupils spent the day at Meadowmill representing Pinkie at the annual athletics event. The whole team represented the school brilliantly, with lots of encouragement for team mates, every individual trying their hardest and a fun spirit throughout the day.
It was a very blustery day which meant running the top bend of the track was extremely tricky…. This didn’t stop the relay teams though, with all four P6 and 7 teams getting the baton around slickly, and two making it through to the final. A very big well done to the P7 boys who were in a photo finish for third in the final, and the girls who grabbed second place in their P6 final! A special shout out to Jack, who took away a medal after winning the throwing event!
