P6/7’s Excellent Eco Week (so far)

Day 1

On Monday 29th May, it was Sports Day for some of the class and Interscholastics for others.  Some of the activities were hammer throw, skipping race, football dribble and shot put.  During Sports Day the House Captains sold coffee and tea and Scottish snacks to parents that came to watch their children participate in the activities at Sports Day.

At Interscholastics, some of the P6s and P7s got to take part in different track and field events, competing against other schools in Edinburgh.  Ewan and Sadie got a bronze medal in their events which were cricket ball throw and long jump.  Everybody else did well in their events too!


Day 2

On Tuesday 30th May we went on the inflatable assault course.  It was very fun and we did it in 2 teams.  We got 2 houses paired up and they competed against each other to see who won.  We also did football with Steven and we did dribbling and toe taps.  We played a coconut challenge and had fun.  We made smoothies today with Adam and Ross from Sustrans.  We didn’t just make ordinary smoothies, we made them with a smoothie bike!  If you pedalled faster the blender got faster.  Miss Dickson judged our smoothies and group 1 won the best looking smoothie and group 4 won the best tasting smoothie.  Despite feeling very tired, we did dance with Lana where we learned 3 different dances.  In addition to that, we did spelling with chalk outside and had lots of fun.  Finally, we did a Leaky Bucket Challenge with P4 where we had carry water in a small plant pot to a bigger plant pot without it leaking.

We can’t wait for tomorrow!
