Na Seann Eipheitich

This term G4/5 studied the Ancient Egyptians and used this topic as a basis for literacy tasks.

We worked in groups and reported back to the class on the importance of the River Nile to them. We enjoyed  showing off our “Wow” adjectives in our poems about the Nile crocodile.

Our main focus was looking at the importance of evidence from the past.

We enjoyed writing our names in hieroglyphs on cartouches.       

We also invited Jack Duncan, student of archaeology, to talk to us about the work of an archaeologist,

He gave us a really interesting presentation and answered all our questions.

Mrs Duncan, who is Jack’s Mum, kindly helped us to write an Egyptian song, which we performed at the whole school assembly.

Sheinn sinn cuideachd an oran ” Chaidh mi sios chun an amhainn an-de..” a dh’ ionnsaich sinn sa chlas Seinn. You can listen to the two songs by following the link.

 

P3/4/5 Enterprise Project

We have been busy this term organising a tuck shop which sells delicious snacks to the whole school every morning break. Our P5 girls, Ruby, Hannah and Cara, are the managers but we have all been helping to serve customers and keep the tuck shop running smoothly. We have had to practice using money so we always give the right change!

This is Glenn, Nathan and Cara serving customers.

We have had some ‘special Fridays’ where we sell our own homebaking. One week we made delicious pancakes and they all sold out!

The Past by EP1/2

This term we have been busy learning about The Past. The children brought in some objects and photos from the past and we very much enjoyed looking at them and talking about them.  We were also learning about famous building from the past and we discussed what the Isle of Lewis was like in the olden days. 

We can’t wait to show our work from this topic at our open afternoon on Wednesday.

Here’s a snap shot of some of our work. image 3  image 4image 6image 7
