Journalism Tips!

We would like to thank Kirsty from Stirling council for coming and speaking to us about journalism.

It was very helpful to us. Some of the tips she gave us are very useful.

You have to remember the 5w’s (what, why, who, when, where!) and make the article short so people don’t get bored! We should write an article as if we are drinking coffee with a friend and having a chat.

Our favourite part was when she told us about her work for the council and in her past experience as a journalist. That was pretty cool. Kirsty used to have to make quick calls from public phones, but sometimes people had cut the wires and the no-one could get in touch with anyone!

The media group enjoyed it and are very appreciative for all her tips and help. We hope we can see her again.

Ready, Steady, DANCE!

Primary 5/6 have been taking part in THINK DANCE 2017! We have been practicing since November and we have loved doing it!

When we arrived at the Macrobert Centre, we all were very ‘nervousited’ (Nervous and Excited!) While we waited, we played games and ate lots of sweets. The maximum amount of time we were allowed to dance for was 10 minutes but we danced for 4 minutes.

Our dance consisted of 3 dances. The dances were inspired by the thought of travelling through time. The dances started in the 1950s through to the 1960s then 70s. We wore yellow T-Shirts that made us stand out more. We danced to the 3 songs; In The Mood, Here Comes The Sun and Staying Alive.

Performing in the Macrobert Centre was nerve- racking and really fun!!!

A big thank you to Mrs Smith, Kim and Zoe for helping us do the dance!!!
