Potato Harvest

Today we harvested our potato plants and couldn’t believe how many there were! We weighed them all and recorded 3kg 25g, wow!

We had so much fun finding them in the soil and can’t wait to use them in the recipes we have written.

The VAT Run

Primary 6 went to The VAT Run on Wednesday and Thursday to do some outdoor learning.

Half of the pupils took bikes while the other half learned to make a campfire, then we swaped on the second day. Everyone loved riding around the bike trails and cooking bananas and chocolate over the fire.

We also played team games which were really fun. Both days were fantastic fun!

Election Time!

Last Thursday  we made our own party and we also made our own posters and rosettes. On our posters we made our manifestos which told other people the aims of our party.

All of the presentations were great but only some people made it really fun! The 3rd place winners were Luke, John Rhys, Ava, Zuzia and Ella.The 2nd place winner was Millie and 1st place was…..Elliot! All of the winners had brilliant manifestos. It was really fun.

More Health Eco Outdoor Learning!

On Wednesday we went to the Community Woodland and did lots of activities, such as, getting blindfolded and feeling trees, identifying trees and shurbs, and drawing flowers. We thought it was very fun and enjoyable. In the afternoon we participated in the Cross Country Run and Luke was the fastest P6 boy! Congratulations!

On Thursday, straight after break, we went to a very relaxing yoga session with Susannah. We did orienteering in the afternoon and learned about reading maps, how to use a compass and finding control stations using dibbers. It also included a lot of running about and problem solving. There was a high-tech machine that told you which controls you had visited and the overall time it took to complete the course. The orienteering was very tired but fun.

On Friday we loved using the smoothie bike to make delicious drinks. It was hard work blending the ingredients but good exercise. Miss Marshall tasted them and chose winners. She liked the yoghurt one the best. We also enjoyed learning how to play Ultimate Frisbee outside.

Health Eco Outdoor Learning Week

On Tuesday we helped the Primary 1s make delicious, healthy smoothies using the smoothie bikes from Sustrans. We used fruit, vegetables, fruit juice and yoghurt. The ingredients were mixed when we cycled the bike, which was really fun.

Before lunch, Steven from West Lothian Football Academy, led some football drills outside.

Then after lunch we enjoyed our time on the inflatable assault course. It was quite difficult because it was raining, but everyone enjoyed racing each other through the course.

Finally, Lana from Dy-namic Dance, helped us learn three routes, which we performed at the end of the day. The songs were great and Lana was really energetic.

Tuesday was a fantastic day!
