Quiz Fun!

Every week, on a Saturday afternoon some of our friends from P7 do a virtual quiz! We take it in turns to organise the questions each week and we all have to get our paper and pens before the quiz begins. Normally about 10-16 people join in.

The quiz lasts about 30 minutes to an hour. We have had to get creative to make it fun so we do two rounds dedicated to a sort of game where the host asks you to get a certain item from your house and the first to find it gets 5 points (normally 1 point a question) and if you get the item you still get 2 points! We have 5 rounds in total with around 6 questions in each round (the amount of questions change sometimes). After the quiz some people stay around just to talk. Last week even Reuben (our old classmate who left Downshire in P5) joined in! It’s a great way to see your friends, stay in touch and have some fun!

Ciara from P1E celebrated her 5th birthday slightly differently this year. Unfortunately she couldn’t have her birthday party with all her buddies from P1E so instead had a Teddy Bear’s party to mark the day. She was so surprised to receive lots of cards, emails and messages and even some surprise deliveries from all her friends and had a super day. Ciara is really looking forward to having a party with all her friends soon.


Congratulations on your birthday Ciara and also for being the first pupil to post a message on the Pupil's Hub!

"This is my fountain that I made while in isolation. To build this I used a lid, stones and some shells that I found at the beach and most importantly a hot glue gun to create the effect of the pouring water hitting the puddle .I put some glue down and gently with a tooth pick I lifted it up. Hope you like it.🤗" Erica P7C


Thank you so much Erica for sharing your fabulous creation with us!
