Arctic board games

Our games are finished!
We designed and created Arctic board games which had to be fun, visually attractive, playable and educational.

Testing the playability.

Are the instructions clear?

Are the questions interesting and are the answers accurate?


All of the games were tested and evaluated by P6 - thank you P6!
We hope your Christmas board games are as attractive and fun to play!

A Christmas Kayak and a Carol

Today we had a bumper 2 hour kayak session at the pool. We played a few games, some of which were adapted from games we play in the hall. We got started with the ice floe game and then we had a tug of war. Next we had 'Total wipe out' and seal and polar bear (a version of cat and mouse). After another tug of war we had a relay race in 4 teams. It was great fun and it showed how confident we all are in kayaks.

We love kayaking!

Yum! Yum!

We wish you a merry Christmas!
After a Christmas lunch it was time for our dress rehearsal of 'A Christmas Carol'.
This is the performance which is videoed and will be put on our website soon.
We hope you enjoy it!

Igloo 2

A week after the original build and the igloo is stronger than ever - the freeze/thaw cycle has hardened the structure.
The temporary roof has been removed for safety reasons but it still provides a fun shelter at break times.

Glaitness tree lighting

We had our own tree lighting celebration on Monday morning after the community tree lighting at the cathedral at the weekend.
The choir gather at the unlit tree.
 We sang 'Oh Christmas Tree' and the choir sang 'Santa Lucia'.

St Lucy arrives with her procession of attendants.
Agata and Alice gave their speeches and the tree was switched on.

The countdown to Christmas has begun!
The tree is lit!

Arctic technology

We took advantage of the weather this week and used real snow to build our version of an igloo. It was not the right kind of snow to build with so we had to make a few modifications to our technique.
