Hello my name is Jodie.
On Thursday 6th October p4/5 were having a viking feast and we did a power point. My one was about Vikings on Islay.
Our mums came to see us and each group had something to do, my group was doing weaving we had a good time.
At the Viking feast there was weaving and I did weaving. For food there was stew, bread, fruit and mackerel and there was the viking name generator and runes. We made up a saga with Jeremy. We made our own sagas for display and we sang Godred Crovan and showed our anamation and a power point.
On Tuesday 4th October P4/5 went to Finlaggan museum and we found out lots of interesting things about Vikings and how Vikings lived.
We went to Finlaggan this week and found out about Vikings on Islay. Then we found out about where they had council meetings if something went wrong. Next we got to see the chapel that had a fire place. Finally we got to go inside and see some viking things. The first thing you could see when we went in was the information desk with a real wooden carved tail and head. They let us look at a model viking ship in a glass. After that we had lunch and came back to school and had our break.
We had Body Works in the school, they were from Glasgow science center. We had lots of fun, do you know if you get a blow torch and icing sugar you put the icing sugar near the blow torch and it will go up in flames. The presenter was talking about the throat and vomit it was funny.
Hello my name is Annie.
On Thursday we had a Viking feast and we made stew, fruit salad and bread. Then we did some weaving and we got to see what our Viking name was in runes. Our mum’s and dad’s got to try the food and they did some weaving and got there names in runes. They watched our power point and our animation we made.
There was a Gaelic awareness day at Port Ellen primary school and all through the day we were doing lots of Gaelic activities. Clare Jorden came in to help us sing Godred Crovan and she let us do harmonies and play musical instruments. After lunch we had a game of Gaelic bingo and I was the first person to get a house. This is what you say when you get a house in Gaelic ‘thi’ that means house and we did exercises as well.
