Here are some photos of the Christmas Party.
This is a photo of Primary 2.
Our class wrote stories and invited the nursery children into our castle so that we could read to them.
We had a great turnout for our Medieval Festival on Thursday. Primary Five hosted parents, grandparents and friends while they worked through twelve stations: making gargoyles; making flatbread and eating Robin Hood Stew; signing into our register with quills, using Medieval script; carding and spinning;felt-making;showing our PowerPoints;doing a Wars of Independence quiz;talking through the Battle of Stirling Bridge;weaving;showing our castles and banner; and trying a clarsach. Thank you for everyone who attended.
The children in P5 did a Rock N’ Roll project last term. They had fun dressing up as rock stars and forming bands. In their bands they wrote lyrics to the rhythm and rhyme of “We Will Rock You”–a song about school rules. We performed our song at an assembly. Over the course of the term, they learned a lot about the Rock N’ Roll era: genres of music, various artists, world events and important people who were politicians, scientists, explorers, sportsmen and civil rights leaders. They wrote both their auto-biography (of their rock star character) and a biography of Martin Luther King. They wrote a diary of a rock star and a factual account of the story of the Little Rock Nine–nine brave black pupils who were the first to attend a segregated white school in the South. The pupils also designed and painted their own album covers, wrote titles for their songs and used a compass to create the tracks of the album that went inside the sleeve to their record. Here are some of their band photos.
Ian Paterson, the Countryside Ranger, took us on three Bushcraft Skills outings to Canmore Woods. Here are some photos of our first outing, when the children worked cooperatively to build dens.
