What a day we’ve all had. We’ve been so busy today, in our different groups
we’ve been involved in lots of activities – a half day hike, nightlife, archery,
raft-building pole climb, tree climb and orienteering.
No time for a group blogging session tonight as our pupils have their class time with
Richard Taylor, a youth worker from our cluster.
I have been sharing all of your messages with our pupils so keep them coming. When we
aren’t in our activities we are basically eating one of our four meals a day or
hanging out with new friends.
Another busy day to come tomorrow . . . . let’s hope for another good night’s sleep.
Greetings from Dounans camp. Our P7’s arrived safe and well at Dounans and have had
a great start to their activity week. Here are a few photos of our first day. Keep
checking back each night to see what we’ve been up to.
I am meeting with our P7’s this evening (haven’t seen some and they will be blogging their experiences
to share with you all.
Daniel – My favourite activity today was the Cat Walk.
Zak – I really enjoyed the Mohawk Walk activity because I like a challenge and I liked
the obstacle course.
Sean – I enjoyed the Cat Walk today. I was really nervous about climbing up the tree but I used
my adrenaline rush to my advantage and went as far up as I could!
Struan – My favourite activity today was the Cat Walk. I enjoyed making my way around the obstacle
Lee – I did archery today and our team leader put balloons up on the target board and I managed pop
two of them.
Mya – Today I enjoyed the Living Outdoors activity because I got to make a campfire using flint.
This week our Primary 1 pupils, parents and staff held a small celebration to say goodbye to Jingyi Peng our Chinese student. We have really enjoyed having her in the school and wish her all the best for her future.
Our Primary 4-7 pupils performed an amazing version of Cinderella Rockafella this week. The school is so proud of them. Thanks to the staff and parents who made this possible and thank you for the donation of £96.69 that will be used to buy resources for outdoor learning.
Parents, staff and children battled against the weather during our recent Sports Day. We had to abandon the event on the day, but ran the races the following week. Well done Tyne for winning this year’s Sports Day!
What a busy week we had during Health Week. We had many visitors from our local community who provided pupils with lots of activities to keep them healthy. As part of our Health Week we joined together with pupils from the Nursery for our Potted Sports Morning. What great fun we all had.
What a busy ter we have had in our new school garden. The raised beds provided by Sustaining Dunbar have been really effective and the children have loved growing our own vegetables. In fact we have been so successful that we are offering our local community the oppotunity to ‘Pick Your Own’ spinach and rocket.
