Today at school in the afternoon at 1:00 we had Mrs Rae and we were makeing a moon chart. We made little moons, you get a cup and a black pen and trace over the cup and get your pen and colour in the moon and get tin foil and wrap the tin foil around the moon all the moon shapes and thats how you do it. After break we had Miss Macrae and went on Twitter and a man was asking us to tell him the days of the week in gaelic. Then we all got given numbers and typed them on the computer then after that it was home time.
On Sunday 16th October the Port Ellen Primary Gaelic Choir flew off on an aeroplane to Stornoway. It took us 40 minutes to get there and it was 20 minutes less than what it normally is. The next day was Monday 17th October that was the day of the mod, the people that were doing poems and solos had to get up quite early to go and do them. I got a 4th for my poem and for my solo I got a score of 178. My choir did really well, we won all of our songs that is our 2 unisons, 2 two parts and our Puirt a beul.
Hi my name Eleanor, I am going to tell you about the when Port Ellen primary choir went to Stornoway for the 2011 National Mod. They won 3 trophies and they stayed in a lovely hotel and the food it was lovely too. I enjoyed singing because I like people watching me.
A long time ago people in Scotland carved stones instead of writing. We don’t know why they did it. Perhaps it was to mark a grave or tell people about something that happened. All the stones have different symbols on them, each of them mean something different. The Picts carved lots of mythical beasts on their stones. You can find lots of carved stones all over Scotland. In Orkney there is the ring of Brodga and there is a big hole in the middle of the stones. Some people think a carved mirror means a woman. Carved stones are one of the only things we can get information from that time, because all the other materials have rotted away. The Gaels carved stones had crosses on them because they were Christian. Here are some we made in class.
