Hi I’m Jess from P7. I love Irish Dancing. I’ve been dancing for just over a year with the Aine Hay Academy of Irish Dance in Innerwick.
Last week I took part in dance camp at the academy. I did workshops with Fusion Fighters who are an Irish Dance Performance Crew. It was really enjoyable. I learned two new dances before performing in three shows. We raised money in memory of a young boy from Dunbar who tragically died alongside his two friends in a car accident in 2013.
On Saturday I took part in a Feis, this is a dance competition against other people in my dance class. I did 6 dances and won two silver medals and three bronze! I was so happy!

Primary 6 have taken on their next challenge!
As part of our mi:Space project we will be carrying out a Robotics project.
We had a look at what lies ahead…..
Today we took the next step….building our base drive! Our first robot…..how exciting!
We used ‘THINK-DO-TEST’ to help us work through the challenge:
-We had to think about our Task.
-then we got hands-on to build our robots….following the instructions carefully.
-then we tested our robots to see if we had met our challenge.
We used co-operative learning strategies we use in other lessons to ensure everyone had the chance to take part.
After having some time to build our robots we were able to talk about the challenge, identify things that went well, think about things we might do differently and discuss our next steps.
We are looking forward to our next robotics challenge!
We look forward to welcoming Parents/Carers to our ‘Music & Mince Pies’ Festive Morning.
Please enter through dining hall doors rather than main school entrance. Doors will open for refreshments from 9.00am. Donations for refreshments greatly appreciated.
Our pupils have been working very hard making Christmas Crafts which will be on sale also.
Hi, I’m Daniel and I am a member of UKTC, which stand for United Kingdom Taekwondo Council.
Yesterday I was at a competition at Southside Community Centre, Edinburgh. I won 3 gold medals for 3 different events. I took my 1st gold in patterns. The second was special technique/flying high kick. The third was for sparring.
I recommend TKD for everyone! It’s a great sport and lots of exercise!
