What fantastic experiences our children have had celebrating Book Week Scotland.
Outdoors, “in the deep dark wood” the children chose to follow in “The Gruffalo’s” footsteps and after choosing a character they re-enacted the story taking turns with their puppets. The children also decided to make some of his favourite food : roasted fox and owl ice cream.
The children also had the opportunity to participate in Authors Live, where the authors read their story in Old Scots. Inspiring our children to create their own giant artwork of The Gruffalo.
Another Old Scots story the children have been exploring is the “The Teegar that Cam for his Tea”. The Old Scots words have proven a challenge for our children, however they have enjoyed role playing the story and attempting some of the Old Scots words themselves.
Lastly, today we had a good ‘blether and book swap’ with our families.
