On Tuesday 1st of October P4-7 went on a trip to Sky Academy Studios, we watched an introduction for what we would be doing .We were set the task of making a short trailer for a film where someone had lost their wallet, we were put into three teams/groups. In my team there was: me ,Poppy, Katie ,Reece ,Dair and Angus.
Katie was the actress, Poppy was the producer, Reece was the director, Dair was the editor, Angus was the special effects and I was the cinematographer .
After that we got to watch them all in a special cinema room. They were all really good . When we had done all that, the teacher was handed some USB wrist bands. We got to keep the lanyards as well, we had our lunch then went home.
For the last few weeks primary 6 and 7 have been having Michael from Ross High to do rugby with us. The first week we were getting taught how to use the tags and belts so we put on the Velcro belts and we put the Velcro tags on and we had a game of sharks and fishes. The rules are the fish is running with the ball and the shark is trying to get the tags. Then we were tackling the tackle bags.
This week we were doing a passing game and we had to be in a space and the first team to get five passes got a point and then we did a Velcro game again.
I think this is great fun because I like playing it with my friends.
This week we have been practising our lines and our songs, they are coming on very well. On Mondays P3/4 go first to music and then art, P5/6/7 go to art first and then we go to music. We at least do 1 practice per day and we get advice from the adults about our singing and lines .I am doing fire man 2 and Andy from scene 3. I am enjoying my parts because I didn’t want too big a part because I would have a lot to remember but I didn’t want too little a part because I would have a too easy part. I think other people in my class have a good part just like me they are good at learning their parts they have just the same advantage as me so I hope they do well.
I hope a lot of people come to the show.

On Monday 28th of may we had a visit from Linzie Nicol . She is Mrs Nicol’s sister-in-law and Mr Nicol’s sister.
She came because her face looks slightly different and she is part of the Changing Faces charity and came in to do a talk to our class about how other people look different even though they are the same and they can do the same things.
I learned that faces are just another part on your body it does not matter what they look like they are just the same.
On Monday this week P5/6/7 had a visit from Linzie Nicol, Mrs Nicol’s sister in law. When she was born she had a cleft palate and had a hole in her face and also had some missing fingers and toes,but now you would never know that she had, had a hole in her face when she was younger.
She came to educate us about people who look different from us and tell us how she got through schooling.
We learned that:
1. People make mean comments about people just because they look slightly different.
2. Linzie Nicol was part of a charity called Changing Faces (we got fake tattoos of the logo of Changing Faces).

For the past three weeks on Tuesday p5/6/7 we have been going to strawberry woods and we have been doing den building and toasting marshmallows, chocolate bananas and carving sticks. It was amazing. My favourite was toasting.
For a few weeks p5/6/7 have been practising songs and making backgrounds for the end of term show. It is called “The Next big Step” and today we got our parts in the play. I think that we are all really happy with the parts that we got, I know that I am. If you wanted to go to see the play we will be performing it on Tuesday 26th , June.
We all hope that all parents are looking forward to seeing the play.

On Wednesday the 9th of May p5/6/7 and p3/4 did orienteering with Mrs Daly and Mrs Hunter. It was really fun !!
We did maths orienteering and colouring orienteering where you had to run up to a flag and colour in numbers on a sheet and run back to the other person. At the end we did a run and there was a map that we had to read so we knew where the flag was and could fill out a sheet.
We learned how to do orienteering!

On Friday P5/6/7 did our S.T.E.M. challenge. This time it was a Lego S.T.E.M.challenge. We got a box of Lego between two people and a set of instructions and we had to make a model. Me and Kyle made a set of working scales and a merry-go-round. We had to modify the merry-go-round so that it was easier to use.
We learned how to use Lego in a different way.
