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.
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?
Primary 4-7 had a joint language activity with our friends in Vandeins, France, as part of our weekly connection.
Pupils in both schools drew a picture of a monster, which had a variety of colours and body parts. These monsters were shared with both schools, each pupil having their own monster and one from the other school.
The focus was listening, as a pupil in one school would describe in their own language their monster, and pupils in the other school would listen and see if they had the monster picture being described.
The activity went very well, as pupils had to ‘tune in’ to the language being spoken by the native speakers, and it was great fun for both schools.
