Mock Court
After being the Ayrshire winners for the Pursuers and Runner-ups for the Defenders, P6/7 attended the Mock Court Finals in Central Hall, Edniburgh. It was a great experience feeling part of the court ceremony and listening to the many judges taking part in the trial.
Watching the top 4 teams in Scotland take to court was exciting and made us all refelct on our own court experience which was held in Ayr Sheriff court back in November.
Shaun and Kara were delighted to pick up an award for Top Artistry. Another trophy for the cabinet.
the Mock Court school project was an exciting project to be part of and one we would recommend, espectially for any children, our age who may be lawyers of the future or plan a career working in the courts.


 

Recently we orgaised a Burns Supper for our families and special guests.  It was a great night with lots of toasts, poetry and singing.  Mr Hunter played guitar and all our teachers helped us prepare lots of written and art work.  Mrs McKinney sang too, she was great!

The whole class enjoy going into P1 and P2 to help them with their reading.  Sharing our reading experiences with the younger pupils is always fun and we like to encourage them to read more and talk about their favourite books. 

Have alook at our photos of us reading with P1. Reading with P1
We are also playground leaders and each day groups of us support the younger pupils through games and reminding them of playground rules.

 

Each week is busy for us and we love that.  We’re very lucky to have three music specialists that teach us different areas of music.  Mr Welsh teaches us percussion on a Wednesday, Mrs Coleman is our singing teacher who has also taught us the beginning stages of the ukulele and Mr Miller teaches some of us the chanter.  As we progress through these different areas of music, we enjoy sharing our musical talents during school assemblies and concerts throughout the year.

 

Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing are our core subjects in class and we always try to work our very best to achieve our targets and challenge ourselves to do more.  We particularly enjoy Big Maths Mental Activities and trying out lots of different Number Talk Strategies across all areas of our numeracy work.  Getting outdoors and being active with our mathematical work is always fun and encourages us to use our outdoor space to our advantage.  

 

Literacy is always good when we share our interests by listening to each other and talking about our learning.  We love to share class novels and also have independent reading time that reflects our personal interests. 

 

We use our Health and Wellbeing time to promote self-confidence, independent thinking and positive attitudes.  For many of us, our favourite part of good health and wellbeing is actually being physically fit and we’re fortunate to have a school PE Specialist to help us with this.  Mr Crookston is in each Thursday and he delivers exciting lessons that help us to become more passionate about our fitness and to learn new skills.  Lots of us have taken part in many sporting competitions this year and have done really well.

 

Our big project at the start of this session was our participation in the Mock Court Trials.  This involved learning about the Court system, the roles of people who work in courts and us taking on those roles to solve a case.  It was so exciting to play the parts of solicitors, journalists, court artists and witnesses, to name a few.  We accessed all areas of the Curriculum when working on the projects and all our interests and talents were on show.  We took part in a mock trial at Ayr Sheriff Court.  We were delighted to be the Ayrshire Winners for the Defenders and the Ayrshire Runner-ups for the Pursuers.  Now we have been invited to attend an awards Ceremony taking place in Edinburgh, this March.  All our teamwork paid off!

 

Lots of us are part of the school sports clubs.  The Handball Team and Football Team have been playing well and lots of us enjoy the Running Club on a Wednesday with Mrs Currie.
