The Give and Gain festival


Tuesday 26th March was a lovely sunny morning and P5 from Currie Primary had the opportunity to go to the Oriam to the Give and Gain festival.

We were excited and ready for a day full of surprises.  After an early start, we showed respect to the environment by walking to our destination.  The walk filled our lungs with fresh clean oxygen ready to participate in sports.  It felt amazing.  We knew that winning wouldn’t matter, because we would still have fun taking part.

We were welcomed like kings and queens by a tunnel of powerfully cheering adults as we ran into the gargantuan hall.  We also met our two team helpers who encouraged us to create an amazing team spirit. We were confident sharing our chants and our colourful banner.

We played rugby with some new people and got to use all the skills we have learnt as we sprinted from one place to the other.  We had to make 3 passes and no dropped ball in order to score. We passed the ball to each other like professionals with determination and skill.

We loved the golf because it was so new.  We planted our legs and with all our might and energy we smashed that ball onto that dart board – we might have missed the centre, we might have missed the board itself, but we took part and had fun.

We needed to show team spirit concentrating and using our vision.

We got a short lunch break and liked the mascot race before heading off to our next activities.

In the judo we tried to escape from our partners but it was tough. We took our partners and threw them to the ground as hard as a diamond.

After all this fun, some people thought of entering in a club or starting a new sport.

At the end we sang our sing for the last time and all sat back on the judo mats.  We were waiting … And when one of our teams won the massive Team Spirit trophy, we couldn’t speak!

We walked back through the woods feeling very proud of how we cheered teams on to encourage them to keep going.  The day was awesome and amazing. We would definitely consider going back every year if we could.
