Thursday 5th June: Today P3/4/5/6/7 went to Mid Yell to work with Scottish Opera; in the morning they learned all the moves needed and then in the afternoon they had a dress rehearsal and then a full performance of MacCabbra Opera House. It was a brilliant performance and everyone really enjoyed it.
Monday 2nd June: This afternoon we held our Triathlon. We planned this as the major part of our Game On Scotland Challenge. The children had done all the planning and organising for the event from choosing what to actually do for the challenge down to thinking what was actually needed on the day. As they had to do everything they had to consider their own skill levels and how they could work as a big team or sometimes in smaller teams. They did really well and we are all very proud of what they achieved. They had fun too!
They started with the baton procession; everyone had designed and made a baton with a secret message hidden inside. When they read out their messages it was the first time anyone had heard them.
Next was the first event of the triathlon - the cycle/scooter race.
Then came the run like a Shetland pony race.
Then it was the obstacle course - the first part of this was wellie throwing.
The second part was space hopper challenge.
The final part was a mixture of obstacles.
