Sports Day Fun for Primary 7

By Annie and Charlie

On Tuesday it was St Johns sports day. Sports day always happens at the end of term, no matter if your in P1 or P7 we all join in!

In the morning, the P7’s looked after the P1’s in their sports day. We got into groups and helped and demonstrated their activities that they had to do. We enjoyed it because it was a good experience for us going into high school. At the very end of the younger ones sports day we helped our buddies with the mini marathon and we enjoyed helping them.

After lunch it was our sports day! We were so excited! We did races like the relay, egg and spoon, obstacle course and last but not least… THE MINI MARATHON!

In the mini marathon, the P7’s had to do 2 laps of the Figgate Park! We were very tired afterwards! We all did so well!

This Sports Day was AMAZING!!!!!

Games at the Hub

Yesterday P6 pupils represented St John’s at the annual Games @ the Hub event. The children were placed into 3 different activites, hockey, volleyball and dance. The hockey team did very well to reach the final and finished second overall. All the children were very involved in their activities and supported over 75 other schools. The day culminated in a mass dance off with 600 pupils taking part.

There were a few sleepy heads on the bus home after such a busy and active day! Well done P6!

St Johns Porty Premier League

The Porty Premier League Football season has just commenced. Each of the 8 P7 teams all played their first league game this week.

In PE, primary 7 have been learning in a football context to work together and adopt different roles and responsibilities.So far, in pre-season training they have affiliated to a team, created their own team name, designed a team logo, created a team celebration and adopted key roles within their team e.g.

  1. Manager
  2. Coach
  3. Captain
  4. Fitness Coach
  5. Reporter/writer
  6. Photographer

Teams can earn points for the following:

  1. PE kit (being responsible)
  2. Game play (3win, 2 draw & 1 loss)
  3. Fair Play (shaking hands, encouraging and support others).

Pupils have full responsibility for their own warm-ups, fitness, practice, game analysis & strategies, refereeing and decisions about the season.

Each week we will share our experience and report on our learning.










Scottish Cross Country Event

At the very end of the Easter holidays, three of our Pupils:  Finlay and Liam from P6 and Robyn from P7 took part in the Scottish Country event in Kirkcaldy representing the school as a result of how well they performed in the Edinburgh events, earlier in the term.

All 3 pupils competed well, in a highly competitive field and we are extremely proud of their efforts.
