Primary 4/5 have been learning how different life was in Viking times to now. To see this first hand they went off to Vikingar to experience living in a Viking village. We all had a brilliant day cooking in the longhouse, playing Viking games and some of the children even got married! The class had written a script for a play that they hoped would share all their learning on this topic with their parents. 15 vicious Vikings took that stage at their Learning Assembly and gave a first class performance of their play. Next in the topic is some outdoor learning as the children built their own longhouses! We will keep you updated…..
As part of their topic, Primary 1, 2 and 3 had fun dressing up as scientists and engineers and took a walk around the museum looking at different modes of transport. The children had to decide if they were horse, wind, electric or steam powered. They were allowed to sit in an old-fashioned tram and take a trip on the old style subway.
To top it all off, they had the chance to design their own mode of transport!
As part of their topic, last month, Mikey’s gran and Lewis’s gran came in to talk to Primary 1,2 and 3 about what school time was like when they were younger.
“We have learned that when you got into trouble you got wacked with a belt!” Heather, Zara and Eilidh.
“I enjoyed this topic, the whole entire thing!” Eilidh P2

Primary 7 (and Annabelle in Primary 6) talked to the boys and girls today about VE day. We learned that VE stands for Victory in Europe and today is the day we remember those who lost their lives and fought for our country during World War 2. The boys and girls listened carefully and answered some questions.
We then observed a 2 minute silence.
