You’re a Star, Rory!

IMG_7060Rory is the newest member of the 5 Star Gold Award Club for ‘smashing it’ on the Team Daviot Times Tables Challenge. Rory answered 100 mixed multiplication questions (x1 to x12) correctly. What makes this test particularly difficult is that each question has to be answered in less than one second – with no incorrect answers or timeouts! It is an exceptionally difficult task. This achievement is very special, because Rory used to hate times tables – and I mean hate them! Now he has cracked the most difficult tables challenge around! Well done, young man! I am so proud of you!

Hit for Six!

I am thrilled to announce that Paul Moxon from Cricket Scotland will be visiting the school on May 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th (the next four Thursdays) to give the class some cricket coaching. I know one young man who will be particularly excited! Lucca proved it when he smashed one of my leg spinners out of the BDA Area!

***PE Next Week***

PE will be on Thursday and Friday next week (not Wednesday). I have managed to organise a Shinty taster session for the class on Friday morning; it should be great fun. Please remember to send pupils with PE kits, trainers and water bottles on those days. Thanks for your support!

Drama Day!

On Wednesday next week, Team Daviot will be joined by Katy-Louise Pritchett from the Eden Court Theatre. Katy-Louise will be coming along to deliver a fun-filled day of drama workshops for the whole school. It should be an amazing experience.

Daviot Dancers!

Team Daviot welcomed the Scottish Dance Theatre into school today. They provided two incredible creative dance workshops for the class – and the results were outstanding, I would like to say a huge thank you to Dawn Hartley (and her dancers) for providing such an inspirational afternoon! We hope they come back again soon!

Well Done, Evette!

I had to post a gallery of Evette’s photography skills. She has an amazing eye. I’m no expert, but I think some of these are astonishing… we could have a future star on our hands!
