A few weeks ago P6/7 went to the American Monument to carry on their learning about WW1. We looked down where the Tuscania sunk and most of the locals helped rescue most of the survivors.
The Tuscania had 2’235 people on board but only 267 went missing. The next couple of days was a horrific sight to see the soldiers dead bodies washed up on the shore line. Some of the Tuscania survivors died from illnesses from their wet clothes. The Tuscania was torpedoed by at German U-boat.
Ashvin: It was really fun to go there!
Liam: It was good because we got to see in person!
On Tuesday 27th and Wednesday the 28th of February the P6/7 and G5/7 went to the Islay museum and found out a lot for our WW1 topic. We found out that in world war one there was two ships crashed of the coast of Islay. One was The Tuscania and The Otranto.
Emily told us”Looking around and learning new facts.”
Lauren told us “It was interesting to find out about ww1.”
We talked to Mr Oliver ” I like the chain they used to hold the life boats in place.”
We talk to Ronaldo ” we got to see artefacts.”
Miss Campbell has left the school after ten and a half years of working in Bowmore Primary school with all the children over the years and all of us all sad to see her leave the school. She is now moving on to a new job and we all wish her good luck for all the years to come.
On Monday 5th March a professional artist named Elaine came over to our school to teach us art. We did art on a canvas and we used acrylic paints. we all made different paintings based on ww1. Everyone’s paintings were good.
Here are some thoughts on how it went:
Megan said ”it was really cool, we got to experiment with all the paints and have fun mixing them up”.
Lauren said ” It was really fun”.
Grace said ” I loved it”.
On Monday 19th june Bowmore Primary School will be ready to represent their incredible Endevour Projects.

We called our group Bowmores Excellent Enterprise’s (aka the bees). We have been making photo frames. if you have any spare time to come to the summer fair witch is on the 9th of June to get a photo frame we would be thankful.
Thank you to Mrs Morris, Mrs Campbell and the PTA

Endeavour is a type of independent project that each child has in the class and a few that are in B.P.S are Farming vehicles and Game keeping dogs and my Endeavour is game keeping dogs. Three facts about game keeping dogs is that they collect the birds for the shooters and they go through the bush’s to scare out the birds so they can get shot and that game keepers shake a flag on the hill to shoot the deer.
On Friday the 9th of June Bowmore Primary are holding a summer fayre. At this Fayre P6/7 will be selling some photographs that were taken down at the beach. There will be photos selling at the Fayre and you can order others as well. There will be a variety different photo options i.e. canvas, aluminium sheets and wood blocks. We hope to see you all there!
