P7 – ‘Pinkie Does Tough Mudder’

Yesterday was a wet and wonderful afternoon as the P7’s took on a course set up specially for them following their fantastic fundraising efforts. Well done and thank you to those who donated, as we have raised over £800 and counting from sponsorships!

The course had a soggy crawl under tarpaulin, several planks to clamber up, a terrifying looking spiders web, ropes to crawl under whilst being splashed with sponges (or just poured on with buckets!) and lots of different team exercises.

We are delighted to say that every pupil managed to complete the course, but even more importantly, the pupils displayed such great spirit of resilience, support and fun!

It was a definitely a day to feel #ProudToBePinkie !!!

Check out the photos in the gallery for a flavour of the afternoon.

Meaningful May

In today’s P4-7 assembly we spoke about making May a meaningful, positive and happy month. We listened to the story ‘Fill Your Bucket Up’ and are focusing on being kind to others, filling their buckets rather than being bucket dippers.

We were reminded to never underestimate anyone and to celebrate everyone’s differences rather than put people down because of them.

There was lots to celebrate as each Class Teacher nominated a School Values Champion for the week. P6a were the star assembly class. P7a took Pinkie the bear back for being the best uniform wearing class. Lots of reasons to be #proudtobepinkie

I have had a big smile on my face today as so many pupils have said kind things or asked how my day is going- they are filling my bucket!

Here is the link to the Action For Happiness website which I shared with the children too.

P7b’s Robert Burns Lego Art

Congratulations to all Poetry recital winners! Hadyn was the winner from P7b! She clearly worked hard on learning the words to Robert Burns ‘To a Mouse’ and gave a confident and entertaining recital!

We have also completed our Robert Burns art – we turned Robert Burns into a Lego figure and used the graphic technique of pixilation as inspiration as we painted! We had to create different shades of colours, adding black, white and mixing colours together to make new ones. We took our time, and we are glad we did because the results look effective –  We think he looks pretty cool! Have a look at some!

Have a great holiday everyone!!
