Since returning from our trip to Tomintoul, Primary 7 have been very busy with lots of exciting learning activites. We attended the Hydrographic Society lecture at Aberdeen University where we learned about underwater surveying and the jobs and tasks involved in that. Bartosz represented St Peter’s in the ROV challenge and drove his ROV super fast. He came 3rd overall. Well done Bartosz. Some children also won prizes for asking interesting questions. Well done to everyone.
We had a visit from Jammin’ Fitness. Andy McKechnie taught us some new dances based on the seasons for change and we learned about trying our best all of the time and putting effort into what we do.
We were lucky to have the M and M Theatre Company production of ‘Quasimodo’ for the whole school. P7 got a special backstage insight into what the actors do and how the show is produced with just 4 people playing up to 7 characters each. We were able to try out the lighting system and work with the speakers. The four performers answered all of our questions. The experience may have inspired some P7’s to think about acting or sound and lighting as a future option for a career or hobby. We are learning skills for life and skills for work.
We enjoyed weaving outdoors. We made colourful Ojos de Dios (God’s Eye) designs to decorate our classroom.
Each team had to reserach and plan a healthy lunch that would appeal to younger children and write a proposal.
