The pupils of Gaelic P4-5 have been very busy preparing a new flower bed in the garden area at the front of the school. Last Friday, they spent the afternoon planting spring bulbs that will hopefully provide a splash of colour as the growing season begins again next year.
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.
