A whole lot of spying going on!

Today we held our Spy Party in aid of Quarriers.  We all came to school dressed as spies and you can see for yourselves how good we looked!
Definitely some good undercover agents here!
We played some games that we made up earlier.  This one was to see how observant we were.  We placed some objects on a tray and then someone took something away and we had to guess what was missing.
We also made up some messages in secret codes and then tried to decipher them.  It was quite hard!
We also made up some secret missions for each other to complete.  They were quite difficult to do without anyone noticing!
We all made secret agent badges which had a space for our fingerprints and we made up alias names for ourselves.

Some of us enjoyed spying from under the tables and behind the bushes!

Later we danced and played the four corners game.

Here are our two winners of the 'best dressed spies' and we all agreed that this was a great way to raise money for charity!

Christmas Party

With only a few days to go until the end of term, it was time for our Christmas party today.  We joined up with Rooms 8 and 10 for a great party with lots of games and prizes.  Everyone enjoyed pass the parcel, musical statues, musical bumps and the four corner game.  Here we are trying musical arms for the first time!

We are really looking forward to our Spy Party tomorrow!  This is the fund raiser we have organised for our Enterprise Topic and we have thought up some great games to play! 


Bad weather for the Christmas Concert!

Here is one of the last views of our snowy decant school before we move back to Ard Road!

Heavy winds and rain meant our school had to close on the day of our last concert.  However, parents and friends managed to change their plans and turned out in force to support our rearranged Christmas Concert and Nativity.

Here we are rehearsing our song 'Do You Hear What I Hear?
And here we are performing at the Christmas Concert!


Quarriers wins!

After researching local charities for homework we joined with Room 10 to work in groups to make presentations about different charities such as the Sue Ryder Foundation, the Dogs' Trust and the Thistle Foundation.  We worked cooperatively to make a poster about each chosen charity.

Next we worked on our presentations so that we could persuade people to choose our charity.  Everyone played their parts in the presentations and then we voted for the best presentation.
Quarriers won the vote, so the money we raise during our Enterprise topic will be sent to them.

Enterprise topic

We made a learning plan for our new Enterprise topic - Caring Kids.  We are aiming to find out about charities, what they do and how they raise their funds.  We are hoping to choose a charity that we can raise money for, so we have been finding out about various charities that are local to the area.  We didn't know that there were so many different charities!
