Our Gaelic Cafe

On Friday 2nd May some of p6/7 set up a Gaelic cafe. Throughout the morning we had to speak Gaelic to the customers and the other pupils. We served tea, coffee and cakes that were kindly made by Cameron’s  mum. We also had to make help sheets for all the customers so that any of them who do not know how to speak Gaelic can try and learn a wee bit. Oliver was running the juice, Cameron and Annie were running teas and coffee, Izzy and Ciara were running the cakes and Robbie was adding the money and giving out change. Over all the day went really well and we made a profit of £29.19.

Primary 5 have been doing a lot of maths in fact I think they are math experts, they have been doing a lot of work on their times tables and place value.  For homework they have been getting sudoku for fun. In Spelling they have been doing the normal Nelson spelling textbook(plurals).   For PE they have had Brandon Freeman in as a sports ambassador from High School to teach different skills and basketball. They have had Mrs Macdonald in for gaelic to teach numbers up to 20 and items in the class room. For art they had Mrs Onions who tought them how to change a spring picture into a autumn picture.For Music most of them have taken up an musical instrument and received them today.  Their class room has now became a secret agent HQ as they have designed their own gadgets and wrote about them.
