Last session Primary 4-7 wrote Olympic Sports Sonnets, which were the last of many poetry forms we had written over the session.

We entered the Sonnets into the Borders Live Rio Olympics Poetry Competition and today we heard that Jared got second prize and Isaac got third prize.  Everyone did a great job, but well done Jared and Isaac.  It is hoped that they will be presented with their prizes by Borders Live staff at an assembly soon.

All the Sonnets can be seen on our blog here.

All of last sessions poems were published in a book, which would make a great Christmas present, and can be found here (black and white issue) and here (colour issue).

Here are the prize winning poems by Jared and Isaac.

No Primary 5-7 are not Space Aliens, …..mmm;-)  they are designing their own version of Aliens using papier mache.

Today was our second go and the aliens are coming along well.  Very impressively everyone cleans, tidies and clears everything away very well, with no mess and in good time, ready for next time!

At the end of last term Primary 4-7 made a book of poems based on the variety of work done during last year, as part of an enterprise project.

This book is now available in black and white or colour versions and can be viewed and ordered online at the publishers website – black and whitecolour.

Hard copies can be viewed at the school office.

The Olympics and Sport have been topics that Primary 4-7 have been working on in the summer term, and as part of the Leavers Assembly, we performed an Olympic Creative Dance.

A lot had to be crammed into a short time in this busy summer term, but everyone did very well in creating this dance that starts and ends with the Olympic Rings, and depicts various Olympic Sports.  See how many you can spot?

Here are are more photos from our enjoyable Primary 4-7 day out visiting the Kelpies, Stirling Castle and the Falkirk Wheel.

Everyone enjoyed all the attractions, with Stirling Castle probably being the most popular having a variety of activities aimed at children.

Comments from parents and pupils like ‘best trip ever’ says it all!
