Lockerbie week away!

Last week year 6 went on a 4 day trip to Scotland, Lockerbie.

On the way to Lockerbie we sat with our friend trying to amuse our selves for 2 hours.

We did many fun activities but our favarite one was the Crate Stack. So you had a team of 6 people  that all did different jobs. Two people would do the job of passing the crates up to the crate stacker who would stack them up. Three people were in charge of making sure the crate stacker didn’t fall to there doom. (Belaying). Mrs Davidson was ruthless when it came to knocking the crates down. The other teachers all gave a count down. Mrs Davidson didn’t!

You were all put into groups .We were in group 6. Of course we did rafting and boy it was fun. We built the rafts out of barrels , rope and long wooden planks.

Our last activity before we left was climbing. Most of us reached the half way point or above. How ever Richie managed to fly around the wall in his harness around  6 times. He looked like a flapping bird shouting cheese over and over again. In the end he had to come down.

The other activitys were orienteering ,abseiling , hill walk (more like a Hike than a walk) , mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, low ropes , blind trail and archery.

The Food was amazing!!!!!  On the first night we were surprised on how many options there were . Breakfast options were always the same. We had egg and beans and hash browns every day.  Each evening for dinner the was a pudding such as a muffin , cookie , ice cream. Unfortually we missed doughnuts because we left before dinner.

pods. In the pods you would share with 3 or 2 other friends. They were extremely cosy. There was 2 bunk beds on either side of the room. In the middle you could keep your suit cases. This was were we spent our free time. Well whenever we had free time which was very rare.

All together it was the best trip we have ever had!

The End

 

Lockerbie

Hello this is Katie and Ava. We will be telling you about our amazing trip to Lockerbie. We were in different groups but in the same pod and canoe. First Ava will be talking about the activities that she did and  then I will be talking about what I did after. Sit back,relax and enjoy.

Hiya, it’s Ava, so first I want to talk about my abseiling activity. I didn’t do it, but I went to the top to check how high it was. I went back down cause I didn’t want to do it. Also I wanted to see what was wrong with one of my class mates Jaiden. He was acting unusual. He hardly blinked and hardly talked! And kept falling over. We were all very scared and I’m sure a couple of us had nightmares! Some of us even cried! Then he said it was all a prank and I stared crying of laughter! Also if was night, dark and wet! Now Katie will be talking about her abseiling fun.

Hiyaa,it’s me Katie back again and I will be talking about what my abseiling fun. I was waiting in the shed until it was my turn to abseil. I was so excited. Until I saw how high up it was,I was shaking and when I was leaning back and I thought that I was gonna die! So I ended up not doing it,I really wish that I did though.

Ok Ava here! I am going to be talking about my raft building adventure. We used 6 barrels,4 ropes and 4 logs. We tied the barrels together and under the ropes we had the logs. Then we went on the lake. Some of us fell of and some of us jumped in! I got pushed in. It was so cold! Josh.P was the only person who didn’t fall in. Once you got in there was no choice you had to push the raft it was very hard to get back in the raft! As well it was hard to breathe and talk because the water was so cold and heavy on your chest.

Hello, it’s Katie again. I will be talking about my raft building. It wasn’t easy to make. It was hard work paddling and I ended up falling in.

Ava back! I will be talking about my blind trail trip. First we went in the woods like a conga line and went through a maze. Then we got into partners and this was the messy part. I got into partners with Jamie and he put his blindfold on while I took mine off and guided him though obstacles. We had to follow the ropes and I led him through a tunnel full of wet ooyee mud. Then realised he went in there for no reason because we went the wrong way. ” It’s a BUSHTUCKER TRAIL” he said!

Hi,it’s me Katie and I will be talking about crate stacking. We had to stack these crates and we were hooked into this harness thing. I fell down but had not a scratch.

Hi it’s me Ava and Katie! And we are going to tell you about are pod jokes/fun! (We were in the same pod with Lorie and Dani) Me and Katie were playing a card game called cheats and instead of saying ace of spades,I said ace of cheats. Me and Katie made up a pod song called four little wormies. We would type the lyrics but it is too long.

 

That at was our Lockerbie trip. How was yours?

OUR BEST MOMENTS AT LOCKERBIE

last week most of the year sixes went on a residential trip to Lockerbie  for 4 days and 3 nights .

I loved waking up to my friends dying squirrel snoring noise.           Locherby residential trip and squirrels

I loved the really high climbing wall which was cinda hard but I got to the top

I found the mountain biking fun and I was nearly dying of laughter when a girl called Alana Parker fell of her bike (hahahahaha)

My best bits was my friend who wouldn’t stop fixing his hair it was so annoying!!!!!!!!

I loved archery but I think that’s just because I got a bullseye so but I really enjoyed it

i was getting sick of all my friends singing ,somebody once told me the world was going to rule me I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed , it was so annoying .

AND THE FOOD WAS AMAZING!!!!! For the last day it was fishy Friday and it was amazing could you tell me if you had fishy Friday’s.

one of my favourite things was low ropes becaus I was in a brilliant team of Josh and Jamie and they were so surportive and helped me threw the corse even the parts I didn’t want to do they were the best teammates ever.

SOME OF THE THINGS WE DID

archery,raft,mountain biking,climb,blind trail,mountain climb,low ropes,kayak,abseiling,crate stacking,

 

Lockerbie

Hi our names our Owen and Jonny and our favourite part at Lockerbie  was absailing. well mine was Jonny on the other hand not so well he was scared a lot and I mean a lot and when he was close to the bottom he said “yay I got the hang of it”but then realised he was a meter high. But when I went I just really wanted to jump but the guides  wouldn’t let me. But  I just did it anyway. sooooooo o well.

now on to Jonnys favourite part i just want to point out I wasn’t scared on absailing (well me and Owen will talk about that) so I liked orientiering.the group was me,Owen(again oh god) mason,Louis and Adam it was so funny because we were all saying lets go here no here no over there and.owen talking so of course I was amazing at it so back to you Jonny.what I was going to say is we made alias with Nicholas Shara Katie and someone else I don’t know who they were maybe they’ll say something in the comments I don’t know so any who we made alias with them and when we found all our letters they still had one more so we had a vote leave them or stay with them Owen and Louis said stay but the rest of us said leave so we left them and  we lost Owen and Louis were right we should of stayed.Thats the end of our blog you don’t know we may make another one who knows so many that’s bye from me Owen and bye from me jonny. CYA!!

Lockerbie!!!

On the 26th me and my friends went to Lockerbie which was amazing! The food there was lush you could have a cooked breakfast everyday and cereal. My and my friends in my pod (dorm) couldn’t get to sleep the first night , we were so tired the next day. My friend Hunny fell of the bed! Then she slept  on the floor! We did 13 activities in total.

Blind trail,climbing wall,ab-sailing,kayaking,canoeing,rafting,low ropes,crate stack,jacobs ladder(a big ladder you have to climb),hill walk,mountain biking,orienteering,archery .

My favourite was crate stack because you are attached to a harness at you have to stack crates underneath you with the help of crate passers. It was really fun!

At the abseiling this boy called Jaiden pranked everyone into thinking he was pasest he even fooled the teacher! Oh yeah I also fell in the water in kayaking , the water was so cold.

Lockerbie was so fun!

Bye for now!

Banana Mummification!

In Ancient Egyptian times people, including pharaohs, were often mummified after they died. We have investigated what happens during the mummification process but couldn’t find any willing volunteers, so we used bananas instead! We removed the ‘internal organs’ and threw them away and then packed the ‘body’ with a mixture of salt and bicarbonate of soda which is similar to the natron used by Ancient Egyptians. This was then wrapped in paper and placed in an airtight ‘coffin’ for three weeks. Today, we unwrapped our mummies to see what had happened. Read on to find out what we discovered!

We didn’t go to Lockerbie

I was left behind left behind. Yes that’s right we didn’t go to Lockerbie. But if you are asking did we miss the bus no, no we didn’t miss the bus we were just not going to Lockerbie ( But if I was going maybe I would be late) and it left us devastated.

Also if you are asking why I didn’t go well the answer to that is quite simple my mum said “No!” I tried to persuade her but it was just a no! I would probably think if you were in my position you wouldn’t be able to persuade her.

Now, let’s talk about what happened inside school first we’ll talk about maths, since Mrs Turner was at Lokerbie we were with one of toughest teachers when it comes to maths the deputy head Mr Sheperd. But you wouldn’t believe what happened? Mr Sheperd was being nice and didn’t make us do work for most of that week technically we were just helping year 5’s with their work.

Next, we shall move on to my favourite subject English but my favourite English teacher had gone to Lokerbie Miss Mullholland so it wasn’t as good. So, I was stuck with one of the most ruthless teacher Mr Knight. Only joking, you could say I had a pretty decent time because I kind of did my favourite thing in English we did persuasion.

So that’s pretty much what happened thanks for listening. Feel free to tell me about your week in Holland!

Our visit to Lockerbie Manor !!!!!!!!

We went to Lockerbie Manour last week and it was amazing and we all really enjoyed it!!! But my favourite activity was Archery because I almost got a bullsie honestly I was SO close !!!!!!! I also enjoyed raft  building because you got to jump in and get all wet but the bad thing was that you had to push the raft out of the water the water was cold and the raft was heavy because it was made  out of barrels and logs and ropes. Many people liked the food there but I only thought that it was okay because I am a fussy eater.

So, if you go to Lockerbie Manor you are most  lickley to like the food there. My pod number was 3 I got to stay with most of my friends but not all of them because you can only get 3 or 4 in a pod sadly. But if you are wondering what a pod is it is a cosy shed that you sleep in. It has 2 bunk beds and 2 windows and 1 door and 1 heater which you have to turn on at after dinner and off after your last activity of the day. Just so you pod is warm after you have had your shower.

But you have to take care of your pod by keeping it tidy and not spraying anything and don’t jump off or on the top bunk because you will hurt yourself. Pod inspections are mad regularly by teachers. BUT IF YOU DO SPRAY ANYTHING YOU WILL SET THE SMOKE ALARM OFF AND WAKE EVERYBODY UP SO DONT DO IT IF YOU DO NEED TOU USE SPRAY USE IT OUTSIDE OR IN THE BATHROOM BUT IF IT IS MEDICAL ONE GIVE IT TO THE TEACHER.

We really enjoyed our stay at Lockerbie Manor and we were all sad when we had to leave!!!
