The children finished editing the Glencoe movie a couple of weeks ago, I have finally compressed it and divided it into sections to make it suitable for the website:
Glencoe Movies
The Primary Six children did all of the editing working in small groups, this took a lot of discussion and cooperation which they managed very well indeed.

I have really enjoyed primary six especially language work writing instructions and instructional text.
I had a tough time at maths work but Mr Johnston helped me and Mr Naismith.
Enjoyed my topic work about Victorians and our trip to Scotland Street.

Also in primary six we had a trip to Glencoe that was a blast we had a range of activities we went skiing that was really hard it took me a little while to learn but I soon picked up the pace.
On our second last night we had a Disco.

Primary six has been different its been more interesting than any other class.
Primary seven will be a bit more challenging.

Primary six has been a blast and I feel a bit sad that I am going to have to leave Primary six and go into Primary seven.

On Tuesday 20 June Sandaig and Barlanark primary joined together for three activities. The activities were hip-hop, team combat and circuit. The hip-hop dancing was funny and tiring. The women who was teaching us to do hip-hop dancing was called Leeann. The teacher who was teaching us team combat was called Colette. The team combat was great, Colette showed us how to defend ourselves. The teacher who was teaching the circuits was called Scottie. In the circuits there were different exercises we had to do like star jumps and hopping on one foot for 10 seconds. We all enjoyed the day and thought it was tiring.

Primary five are doing a topic about The Community Centre. We are going to tell you what we have been learning about. Our task today was to design a Community Centre.

We chose different activities for all ages in the Community Centre. For example: Dancing, Drawing and Bowls. We chose different activities to help all ages. We had to choose different activities for different kinds of people.

We decided on the activities then slotted them into the timetable. Then we decided what room, what time and what day it was on. We decided that some days that the centre is going to be closed.

We had to decide what staff to use in each activity and what skills staff needed .We also had to decide what staff could work together. Finally, we had to decide how many teachers the centre would be.

The next job is to design a Community Centre. We had to think about activities and equipment. What kind of spaces we needed for each activity.

We had to make a logo for our Community Centre. We had to make our logo attractive. The logo has to show what the Community Centre is about. We chose a piper for our logo because it is Scottish .

Well, we finally have acted out some of the Dream Dragon Script.
The production is pretty lo-fi, no costumes or scenery, only a few props. Focusing on the performances and how to stage it. The children are shooting the video taking turns at being cameraperson, director and gofor.
They came up with some pretty imaginative suggestions for how to frame and stage scenes. I've uploaded a quicktime movies of scenes 2 to 7 to the internet archive. I hope we will get a chance to record the other scenes next week, but as the end of term nears time is short.

On Tuesday Michael Kerins came he was excellent. He told us about weetom he was the height of our thumbs.
When we went in we had to go under a tunnel. It was a great laugh until we got shouted at but apart from that it was all great.
The story was about his Uncle Dan was away to Cairo in Egypt. weetom was in a bad mood with his Uncle Dan for not being back for him. So it was time for his bed so he went to bed reading a ghost story book and he fell asleep he had a nightmare and he screamed and screamed, his uncle dan heard him and he paid the taxi and ran up the stairs and went in the house and saw him sleeping.
Shaun was griting his teeth together and Mr Johnston had to hold his jaw and he did not like the feeling we all think Michael Keirns was amazing
