On Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st, P6 went to The VAT Run to do outdoor learning. This included riding the bike trails, building a campfire to cook on and participating in team building games.
This morning, primary 6 pupils went down to the Vat Run where some of us cycled and some of us made a camp fire. Here are some pictures from the morning.
At the end of the morning we had some team building activities. Thanks to Mrs Mercer for her fire pit skills!
We will do it all again tomorrow with both groups swapping activities. (The chocolate bananas were especially yummy!)
Some children from P6 and P7 were chosen to compete for Echline at Interscholastics, an annual athletics event for Edinburgh schools. This year it was held at George Watson’s.
Everyone tried their best in their events and did themselves proud. They represented the school very well and it was a great opportunity to compete against other schools at a large stadium event.
A special well done to Sophie who won her heat for P6 Girls 80m Flat Race and made it into the final. Another special well done to the P6 Boys Relay Team consisting of Archie, Lewis, Igor and Sam, who also won their heat and made it to the semi-final. We all nearly lost our voices cheering them on as they ran another great race making it into the final! Unfortunately they didn’t come home with a medal but they did their best on the day and we couldn’t have asked for more than that!
Thank you to Mrs McCourt for accompanying us on the trip.
On the week beginning the 28th May, P6 enjoyed participating in lots of fun eco, health and outdoorlearning. Fantastic experiences included:
– Sports Day
– American Football
– Inflatable Assault Course
– Cycle to Hopetoun House
– outdoor measuring
– outdoor creative tasks, e.g. make a small world
– Visiting the Community Woodlands
– Beach Clean
On Tuesday 29th May, Primary 6 pupils cycled from the school to Hopetoun House and back again. This cycle was led by Kerr, who works for Sustrans.
The pupils were able to use the skills they gained during their recent Bikeabilty Level 2 Training, to participate in this exciting opportunity. Everyone loved being active whilst being outdoors, and also appreciated the beautiful scenery along the way.
Well done everyone for a fantastic Sports Day today!
Well done to the hard-working House Captains who did a great job at keeping spectators refreshed today. Thanks to the busy stall we raised £107.15 for school funds. Thank you very much to Scotmid for donating tea, coffee and milk and to Tunnocks for donating the caramel wafers and teacakes.
Here are some pictures from today, including some very proud medal winners across P6 and P7 – congratulations!
