MOVE Celebration Day

We had a great day on Friday the 23rd May for National MOVE Day. We have been learning about the Commonwealth Games this term so we thought we would tie it in to an action packed MOVE Day.

We started the morning off with a warm up at Big Circle led by our PE teacher.
Then we marched out to the courtyard to take our places for ‘the races.’
Many parents were there to cheer us on.

We did a running race and an obstacle race. The Green, Blue and Red classes were competing against each other. Our final race was the parents’ egg and spoon race.

We all had so much fun. We had a Big Mac which was passed around to allow each child to start each race with Ready, Steady, Go.

There was a medal presentation at the end.
Its not about the winning, its about the taking part
(although the Blue Class did come first!!)

Sports Relief

We joined the whole school out on the field to raise money for Sports Relief. Everyone had on their sports gear and ran or walked all the way around.  We also had a special obstacle course at gym.

There were lots of different tastes in the Blue Class.  Oatcakes, Scottish Cheddar,Scottish honey, haggis, neeps tatties, Selkirk bannock and  a little taste of Edinburgh rock as well as the favourite tablet.  All the pupils used either a talking mat or like/don’t like symbols/getsures to indicate their preferences.

The Red Class became the music hall with a range of Scottish music from the Red Hot Chilli Pipers to Jimmy Shand.  There was marching , ceildh dancing, waulking songs as well as drumming.

The Green class created a beautiful Scottish landscape in the style of JOLOMO which we hope to mount and display.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Our Scottish Ceilidh

We invited our parents and P6 buddies to our ceilidh on Friday 31 January. We put on our dancing shoes and tartan sashes and had a great time performing the Gay Gordons, Mrs Burrell’s Jig and the Meadowpark Reel. Thank you to Hayden Anderson who provided the music. As part of our Scottish theme we have been listening and dancing to different types of Scottish music. Look out for more news about our Scottish Journey.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe had a surprise visit today from David McCandlish from the Dunbar and District Motorcycle Club. His club organise a special Christmas toy drop –off point at ASDA in Dunbar and they have kindly donated a number of toys to the Hub including a very large doll’s house which has been a great hit. A huge thank you to all the customers at Dunbar who donated gifts.

A Day to make a Difference

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On the last day of term three volunteers from Loyds Banking Group came to school and made a huge difference to the sensory area in the Red Class. They blacked out the area with very sticky backed velcro friendly material. The sensory area now looks very smart and the dark background will enhance the effects of the light and sound. An additional bonus – we can now mount items onto the walls without them always falling off!
They also re hung the ceramic wind chimes on the sound sculpture outside and it is lovely to hear the tinkling sounds again.
A huge thank you to you all.
