Glasgow Science Centre

The mini-bus pulled up outside Glasgow Science Centre. I had been looking forward to it. We entered, a girl called Liz-Anne showed us where to go and where to put our bags and coats.
Then we went onto the first floor. We looked around at all the amazing structures and experiments. My favourite thing was a car simulator where one has to avoid crashing the car. Soon after we saw a show called “Blood Bile and Body Bits” which I extremely enjoyed seeing, it was hilarious when Shane had to eat a cream cracker in under a minute. After the show we looked around for a little while and then went to a workshop called “Wind Works” in the workshop we did a experiment with a wind turbine, a fan, amp metre, LED light and a buzzer. Then we tested how much electricity the mini turbine was producing.
After that we had lunch and then left to go back to school, when we arrived back it was home time, we were all counted and then went home. I really enjoyed it and my Dad and I are going back in the summer.

Rosslyn Chapel

Rosslyn Chapel

 

Waiting at the door everyone could not wait for the bus any longer, luckily it arrived so we all rushed out the door and towards the bus. St. Luke’s were already on the bus, we all sat down and the bus moved off.

After about twenty minutes we arrived at Rosslyn Chapel. We had to stand in the cold while a lady gave us our quiz booklets and then we entered. There was a group of children dressed in Knight’s costumes and we all followed them. In the Chapel there were more children dressed in different costumes representing the Saint-Clair family. These people were acting out who, when and why the Chapel was built.

After the performance we separated in to our groups for the quiz, I was in the Hearts. The quiz was hard at points especially when we had to count how many animals were on the window. My favourite part was when we saw an actual bullet that was fired in to the walls by Oliver Cromwell’s army.

I really enjoyed myself and would like to go again.

Outdoor Learning

     Outdoor Learning

 

Our local woods are full of things to learn, and places to explore, so how better to experience them than have an expert guide us around them? We were going to Thornton Woods to learn more about nature and our local environment, because even in the cold of winter, life is always around us. Even though the ground was draped in frost, the whole school was determined to have a good time.

When we arrived at the entrance to the woods, we met our guide, Alistair. Then we ventured into them and walked along a lonely woodland trail, towards a path of trees where “base one” was located. Alistair told us a few facts and then moved on. When we came to “Base two” we played a game called Tree Demons with pinecones and then set off for home.

I definitely enjoyed the experience and look forward to going to the woods again next week to learn more interesting facts about the environment all around us!

The Snowman

We all arrived at school sharp so we would reach the theatre early. When the bus came we hopped on and set off for the Festival Theatre. When I was younger I had gone with my Mum and Dad to see a production of “The Snowman” so I was looking forward to seeing what had changed.

Everyone was really chatty, until Ruth was sick then most of us felt sick ourselves. We were very relieved when we stopped and jumped off the bus, to get away from the smell.

Once inside the theatre I sat with Ben on my left and Andrea on my right, we settled ourselves down and then it was show time. The theatre went dark and the curtain went up, we could see a little boy lying in his bed. When he awoke he quickly dressed himself, zoomed down the stairs and out the front door where he started to build a magnificent snowman. He gave it a hat, scarf and a tomato for a nose.

Overnight the snowman came alive! The boy heard something and got up to see what it was, he spotted the snowman and he brought him inside to the hot fire. Suddenly the snowman started to melt so they ran to the cold kitchen.

Inside the Kitchen they opened the fridge and a bunch of fruit came out and started to dance. There was a Banana, a Coconut and a Pineapple and the boy and the snowman started to dance as well. Once the fruit party was over they went to the toy room.

There they found a marching soldier, teddy bear and a ballerina who they also danced with. Next was Mum and Dad’s bedroom where the snowman put on some makeup, he looked very silly and he also tried some clothes on.

After that they went to the garden shed, where they found a working motorcycle, which they jumped on and the bike went up into the air and it flew. They flew to the Snowman Party in the South-pole, where they met Santa Claus and also Jack Frost=BOO. He kept trying to dance with the ballerina but she was in love with the Snowman. Then Santa gave the little boy a present, suddenly the sun started to rise and it was time to go home and go back to sleep.

When the little boy woke up he realised it was Christmas and ran down the stairs, down to the door and out to the garden where the snowman had melted. All that was left was the hat, the scarf and the round tomato nose.

Mr C McCabe

The Sprightly Tailor

 

 

 

I was sitting in my house just one hour before the show, thinking of all the rehearsals, most of them went rather well. I was mainly thinking about the dress rehearsal and what Mrs Matthews said to everyone earlier on.

 

An hour had past and I was sitting in the church hall ready for the first scene “The Pub” which went very well. I was now backstage waiting for my next scene, then I realized my bonnet was missing I searched for it but could not find it.

 

After what felt like hours it was “The Market Scene”. This was my second favourite of nine scenes, in “The Market Scene” the chief servant (Andrea) came to the market looking for a tailor to make some clothes for the Laird (Lara).

I watched the next scene until I was on. This was one of the funniest scenes. The best part was when Conor put on the wolf fur jacket. There is a really funny photo of me holding up the poster that I show, it is in the Library if you would like to see it.

My favourite scene was the “Graveyard” this was one of the scariest but funniest scenes. I really enjoyed making the monster for this scene and it turned out great. I would just like to say a final thank you to Cheryl and Fiona who made this all possible.
