Junior NBA

Congratulations to the P7 Junior NBA team, who remain unbeaten after today’s game. They kept their cool in a very close game against Dalry, winning by just one point. 👏🏻

The game finished 24-23.

Celebrating Whitehouse & Grange Bowling Club’s 150th Year

This week, our P7 Sports Captains (minus Ray and Hamish, who were busy taking part in an important tennis competition) were delighted to attend the Whitehouse & Grange Bowling Club’s 150th year celebration. The club invited the pupils to plant a tree to mark the occasion, which is accompanied by a plaque – pictured.

Rayan, Sadie, Moses, Elizabeth, Theo and Maria represented Sciennes beautifully. They were enthusiastic, polite and engaging, and I know the members of the Club were most grateful. The kids even managed to stay positive during our quick March home after the heavens opened!!

Thank you to Whitehouse and Grange Bowling Club for inviting us, to Mrs Ellis and her husband for thinking of us in the first place and to Stephen Fox who organised the whole event. We look forward to potentially visiting again in summer to try our hand at bowling!

P7 Meadows

In preparation for after the February break, we took all three P7 classes to the meadows today for their lunch time play. We plan to have another trial run on Wednesday and will resume on a more regular basis from Monday 21 Feb.

It was so nice to see the kids all spread out and enjoying the space and, dare we say, a little bit of normality.

Cricket with Theo & Ludvig

A big thank you and well done to Theo and Ludvig who ran a very well-organised session of cricket today for P7A. The boys, who both play, planned a warm up, some skill-development activities and then led two mini games as well as a whole class game to finish. It was lovely to see how well the kids played together, how impressively they could bat and also to see some very impressive catches. A super effort, boys. I could see that everyone enjoyed the lesson, despite the cold toes!

Well Done, P7 Captains

Today our P7 Sports Captains, along with some of our House Captains, led P1-7 on a Fun Run in the Meadows. The P7s shared instructions, led the warm-up, led the run, cheered the kids on, were enthusiastic, and generally just led by example. They should be very proud of their performance today. I imagine they’ll sleep well tonight!

7C Enterprise Project

All our hard work was definitely worth it! We had an excellent time organising our stalls and are still counting our profits!

Thank you so much to everyone who supported the 7s and helped out yesterday. What a successful way to finalise our learning!

So much work went on behind the scenes. Really well done to all of P7! 👏
