Superb Spring Inter-Island U12 TAG Rugby Competition

tag-rugby-comp-april-2016 (3)Last Saturday morning saw Provo Primary school take part in the Spring Inter-Island U12 tag rugby competition. With tag rugby being such a popular sport on the island and interest from all schools at an all-time high, it was no surprise that Provo Primary could enter two teams: Provo Thunder and Provo Hurricanes.

With competition at such a level, Provo Thunder and Hurricanes instantly realised that they had to use all the skills they have mastered during tag rugby club as well as a strong sense of team work and communication. Both teams played exceptionally well against really well-organised and disciplined teams

Check out our Creative Chess Club, Mate!

chess-club-mar-2015 (8)Chess club has been a growing success.  With quite a few beginner players, it’s great to see how they are now starting their games with clear opening moves, more carefully thought-out game play and a clearer idea on how to position their pieces to check mate their opponent.

Alongside learning and developing their knowledge and strategies, they have also been working in partners to create their very own chess sets – using only paper, glue and tape!

Amazing Animators Release Workout Video!

Provo Primary’s Amazing Animators have created a workout video – just in case you feel like some exercise after Thanksgiving or during the upcoming holiday season!

This video was created using a technique called retro-scoping, where a video clip is broken down into frames and traced by hand. Each of the individual frames was then photographed and re-animated using MovieMaker.

We hope you enjoy our latest video!

After School Spotlight: Art Club

art-club-nov-2013 (20)When Miss Charlotte and her husband enrolled their two children at Provo Primary last year, little did anyone know the school was soon to have an “art attack”!  An accomplished professional artist with a graduate degree in higher education art and design from Cambridge University, Charlotte’s initial after-school art club proved so popular, that there are now  “junior” and “senior” sections on separate days with projects targeted to the different age ranges.

Provo Primary Golf Club a Smash Ht!

golf-club-oct-2013 During September and October the Provo Primary Golf Club was in full swing! Eight pupils were welcomed by our friends at Provo Golf Club for a fantastic five-week golf clinic that aimed to help them with all parts of their game. From chipping contests to putting challenges, longest drive competitions and straight shooting matches, our Golf Club had it all!

Children were able to learn the basics of the game on the beautiful practice greens and driving range, and were even able to get out onto the course to test their long game on a real fairway.

In our final session children used their new-found skills in a hotly-contested competition. Pupils realised that a smooth swing is only part of the recipe needed for a good golf game! In our “Cool as a Cucumber” challenge, children learned that a calm and focused mind was just as important as the club in their hands.

A huge congratulations goes out to all of our young golfers, as well as an even bigger thank you for our enthusiastic parent volunteers.  And finally a  giant thank you to Dave Douglas and the Provo Golf Club.

We hope to swing back into action in the summer! FORE!

Amazing Animators Reveal their First Film!

It’s been an exciting couple of weeks in the Provo Primary Animators club! Children have been busy learning the basic skills needed to make an animation and have been working hard together to complete their first films!

First, we all learned how important it was to use the cameras correctly, making sure that they don’t move at all during filming. Then we learned the basics of stop-motion animation by filming a growing flower one frame at a time. It takes many, many photos to make even a simple movie!

Finally, we all learned how to use Movie Maker, a program that helps us to put all those photos into a beautiful film! We added a title sequence at the start and credits at the end before setting the whole movie to music!

We hope you enjoy our first ever movie projects.  Click on ‘Read More…’ bring out the popcorn and enjoy!

Look out for us at the Oscars!
