P5a Scottish Wars of Independence shields

This term, Primary 5a have been learning about the Scottish Wars of Independence as part of our Social Studies. We have compared the armour and equipment used by the Scottish soldiers and the English soldiers.

As part of our Expressive Arts curriculum we have designed and created our own shields using a range of materials. We will use our finished products as props in an improvised dramatization of the Battle of Bannockburn.

 

 

 

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’.
