Moral Tales

Yesterday, P4/5 were doing Moral tales.

Moral tales are stories with a meaningg, and the Moral is the meaning, the story is called a Fable.Soon we will be putting our stories on Glow I hope you will enjoy them.

Earlier we were looking at Aesops Fables who was a Greek writer. Milleniums ago, they all have a meaning, and he wrote hundreds.

Also we are doing a play called the Selfish Giant, a short story by Oscar Wilde, that has a Moral as well. I have read a lot of his books and they all have a meaning.



Primary 4&5 have been learning about moral tales as part of their selfish giant topic this term. They have looked at the stories of Oscar Wilde and Aesops Fables, and have written their own versions. Read them in this online book.

Sport Relief

On Friday 23rd March 2012 Port Ellen Primary School went on a 1 mile walk for the charity Sport Relief.

We had been to a Swimming Gala that morning, so it was a very sporty day.We got up with our buddies, and some of us took a balloon and a charity box.

All the classes and teachers went for the walk around Port Ellen, the School went down Lennox Street, turned right, then our feet lead us to the Islay Hotel, where once more we turned right. We wandered past the White Hart Hotel, and came to the park.

Then all of us got together and a picture was taken!!
After that we walked back to school and had break.

On the walk some people stopped to donate, also we stopped some cars too.

When it was over, everyone assembled ourselves in the hall, and Mrs MacDonald announced what we had raised. And we had raised…


We were extremely pleased, I hope Sport Relief will appreciate what we have done!
