Hello everyone.
I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying the snow ⛄️
I wanted to let everyone know that if you had a Talk and Tell session booked for Wednesday or Thursday of this week and have missed it due to the snow storm, that I will be in touch with you next week to rearrange your appointment. You will not miss out on your Talk and Tell time, it will just be at a different time.
Stay safe and warm and I shall see you next week.

In primary 7 we have been learning about Donald Trump winning the US election. Donald Trump said he was going to build a wall between New Mexico and America to keep the Refugees out of America.

We were doing a new subject in maths called multiplication board it is dividing and times so its like board with numbers if you get 10 times 654 you would move right once and if you get 10 divided 321 you would move it 1 space left

In art we made WW2 pictures with paint,water pastels the art teacher gave us planes to put on the WW2 painting it was a good experience because Mrs McLeod brought in her uncles WW2hat and bible.

Last night we had a scavenger hunt and once again team still game came out on top[Niall,Marco,Lovie and joshI}

Group 8 went caving in the morning and gorge walking in the afternoon. Caving was so much fun but we only got to do cave Y the smallest cave…  Gorge walking was SO FUN and we got really wet ;(

Group 9 started off with the orienteering in the morning and caving in the afternoon.  Orienteering was a hard track but the team made it through the track and survived. Caving was a tough treck and a hard time too. It was a dark, but we did it! Miss watt got over her fears and did it it was a great day and fun.

Group 10 had a blast today. First we went biking which was so much fun! The bikes are amazing, we got to go to a river and skim some stones. After that we went abseiling down a 50 foot cliff! Everybody was a wee bit shaky about it but we did absolutely brilliant! So well done group 10.

Can’t believe it’s back home tomorrow… Looking forward to seeing you all.

P7 Benmore Day Two

Yesterday we went on a night walk and it was very scary and dark forest we walked through. We had rope to grab onto while walking in complete darkness. It was a relief when we got to the end because it was hard work climbing through the dark forest. We had to work co-operatively as a team because if someone fell or lost the rope or got stuck we would all help each other. At the end we had to follow the rope back by ourselves without any help and we made it and no-one got hurt or lost so the night was a very successful activity.

The first night was exiting and we where nice and cozy in our beds. We’re so exited for the week ahead and can’t wait to get home and see our families.

Group 8 went into the forest to go exploring. We climbed up the hill and got a hot chocolate at the top! It was very tasty! In the afternoon we went mountain biking which was fun. We had to make sure we could work the gears and stop without skidding.

Group 9 went rock climbing today, we had to wear harnesses and climb up and round a wall. It was quite scary especially if you looked back down! Most of the group made it to the top and everyone did really well encouraging one another. After climbing we had to abseil down the rock face which was REALLY scary!

Group 10 went caving today and found it really challenging but very rewarding! We had to climb half way up the mountain to the cave then went in one by one, getting lowered down 10 metres by rope. Then we had to squeeze through wee gaps to get out safely and with all our limbs. We had to use headlamps to help us see because it was pitch black in the cave.

P7 Benmore 2016 day one

It was a mix of emotions because some people were happy to get away from our parents however some people were sad. The bus journey was long but we got to watch a film so that was good. We also got to eat our lunch at Luss and it was a beautiful sight.

When we got to Benmore we got to know all the staff and were shown around the building. It was a shock to the system to be making our own beds! But we unpacked and got settled in then went for a walk around the grounds, some of us got very wet.

We had time for a quick game of football with Corstorphine before our delicious fish and chips. Now we need to get ready for our night walk! Looking forward to an exciting day tomorrow!

Hope you are all having fun at school! We certainly are!
