In the summer term I made some plant boxes and planted some tatties and carrots. The picture shows the huge tatties that grew- I was really pleased they grew so big. There were plenty of them, and I used them to make tattie soup- it was delicious.

I also help out emptying all the recycling bins in the school, and on Tuesdays I help the Janitors out after break-time. I am learning about all the jobs that need done around our school. Hunter Arthur, 3B
On August the 18th, Laura Matehwson’s ASN class went Bog Jumping with Pete Richardson at the Brig o Fitch. Some of the class had done this before, and were very excited to do the activity again! For some, the activity was completely new, and everyone was looking forward to the adventure!
When we got there, we all had to walk down the burn, which could be very tricky in places, but we did get to swim along some of it! We then made our way up to the waterfall. Everyone had great fun standing underneath it, and playing in the water! Before lunch, we had fun climbing through a large pipe under the main road, and jumping in the water below it! At the end of the day, the dirtiest, smelliest part of all came! We walked up the hill towards a muddy bog, which we all got into! The thick mud and water came up to our oxsters. To get ourselves cleaned, we all went into the stream. It was very difficult to get all of the mud off of us! On our way back to the sheds to get changed, we stopped at the Breiwick bay to go for a swim in the sea. All of the pupils thoroughly enjoyed swimming around, and jumping into the sea! Everyone had such a good day that some of the pupils did not want it to end! Everyone was tired, but a fantastic day was had by all! Our photographs were taken by our brilliant photographer Shannon ‘Coutts’ Ratter!

GAP Do you have a gap in your lunch time after you have eaten? fill that gap with GAP!!
What is GAP? It stands for Games, Activities & Puzzles and is a lunch time activity which runs on Tuesdays from 1.15pm in A2.6. There is a wide selection of less well known board games and strategy games for pairs, groups and sometimes individuals. The activities on offer include paper and card constructions, making of 3-D shapes and origami. What about puzzles? Can you solve a rubic’s cube, move the Towers of Hanoi, do hexagonal jig-saws or construct a cube from awkward shapes? Everyone in the school is welcome to try out any of these, and more, any Tuesday lunchtime.
