#proudtobepinkie at Meadowmill

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 hardestĀ 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 inĀ  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!

Well done team, we are very proud!




P.1A Newsround

Last week P.1 were busy continuing to learn to skip-count, this time in 10s, and got involved planting some bean seeds to learn about the process of germination. We also started creating a poster with our buddies encouraging recycling to help save the rainforests. We also won the prize for best dressed class! Well done us.

We had lots of fun outside with Mr Stone learning about measurement and how to make a set of weighing scales out of a coat hanger, string and plastic cups:

We also said a fond farewell to the P.E. students who had us busy practising our basic moves and running races.

Here are our highlights:

  • I liked planting the seeds.
  • Winning Peter Bear at assembly!
  • Playing with the books and reading.
  • I enjoyed crying and holding Manny!
  • Playing at the home corner.

How does your garden grow?



The children have been helping to nurture our plants in the garden, they have been learning about what flowers and plants need to grow. We found out they grow best with sunshine and water. We will continue to look after them and observe the flowers growing.
