P5B Class Assembly

Primary 5b presented our class assembly today on the theme of International Day.

We spoke about some of Scotland’s contributions to the rest of the world and some aspects of the culture of other countries which have become part of Scottish society.

We also marked the Centenary of the 1918 Education Act by reminding ourselves that the word ‘catholic’ means ‘all-embracing’ or ‘open to all’.

P5a Chinese New Year

Primary 5a have been learning Mandarin as part of our Modern Language studies. We have been practising some basic greetings and conversation as well as learning more about the Chinese culture.

In order to celebrate Chinese New Year, Primary 5a created some Chinese Dragon symbols using craft materials.

Our Mandarin teacher was very impressed with our knowledge and understanding of the Chinese New Year celebrations!
