P6/7 Mr Scott
Royal Wedding Street Party
The sun shone us to keep us happy and glorious on this fine day. We had a street party in honour of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The BBC arrived to film us and we completed the party by standing and singing The National Anthem.
This term our target is to be active. We are taking part in a Daily Mile challenge. On the week beginning 9th April we ran an accumulated distance of 130 miles. With 22 pupils in our class that averages as almost 6 miles per child or 1.2 miles a day.
Our task was to convert dirty water into clean water. We had larger stones to stop the bigger pieces of dirt from getting through, little stones to collect the smaller pieces of dirt and sand to collect the minuscule pieces of dirt. It worked! Transparent water was collected.
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
A few weeks after the devastating floods in our area, we were able to go to the riverbank to study the river. The bank on which we stood was under 15 feet of water a few weeks earlier.
We spent the morning looking at life in the river and the afternoon at the Riverwatch Centre learning how to conserve the fish in our rivers.
We were learning about compass points and our curiosity got the better of us. We wanted to know why a compass always points North. Our investigations led us to working with magnets and making our own makeshift compasses.
Paul Cookson, poet extraordinaire, entertained us on a Monday morning. He has inspired many of us to look at poetry in a new light.
