We would like to wish all our children and families a sunny and happy Summer and we look forward to seeing you back on Wednesday 18th August.
Primary One had a great time yesterday afternoon on the astro for their sport’s. The weather was great which was a bonus.
Primary one took part in six events. The egg and spoon race, skipping, an obstacle course, relay race with batons to pass, using the hockey sticks to manoevre the ball around some cones and tossing the beanbags into the hoops that were progressively further and further away.
The majority of the children enjoyed the egg and spoon race the most, which was actually a potato rather than an egg. Everyone worked really hard especially at the skipping which many found quite tricky. All the children tried their best and a good time was had by all.
P3A were shocked at all the litter they saw in Treverlen Park this morning but we made sure the community park was sparkling by the time we were done!
‘We went litter picking and we found lots of rubbish’ – Lily
‘We saved the planet!’ – Lorenzo
‘We helped save the environment by going litter picking’ – Michael
Well done P3A our Litter picking superheroes!
