Harrysmuir P2G and Braw

P2G thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the National Collaborative. We received the story after Grandtully Primary, so spent some time learning about Perth and Kinross. The children couldn’t quite believe how far away they were.

We were keen to carry on the story and had lots of creative and fun ideas – it was tricky to narrow them down.

It was great to work as a class to write the story and see all our ideas come together.

Lockerbie Cluster Primary Digital Leaders

Our Digital Leaders from the 12 schools get together on Tuesdays to work on their digital projects and learn new skills. They use Yammer to continue their conversations with each other and share their learning by uploading their documents and posting their comments.

As part of National Digital Learning Week 2018, they have been really enjoying the challenge of reading the shared story and predicting what will happen next. They hope St Joseph’s like their illustrations of Josie.

I really liked the explanation of the scenery. The words they used made me feel like I was there. I loved the sentence “Braw skipped happily in the sun”. It’s a great way to show what type of day it was. Well done St Joseph’s RC Primary!        Freya P6

We have been skimming over the first chapter of the story and have been drawing pictures of what has happened in the first chapter. I think Saint Joseph’s have put a lot of interesting and detailed writing and they have made it interesting.     Sophie P6

To St Josephs Primary, I like how you put the last sentence of the story starter into that sentence in chapter one. I like the description of the landscape.   Keiron P6


On Thursday, Nethermill Primary from our Cluster will be writing their Chapter and we cannot wait to see where they take Braw.

Chapter 4; now it is our turn to add to the story. Before today we were busy creating the characters from the story and describing what they looked like and their personalities. We also plotted the storyline recognising the great features of language used by the previous schools; alliteration, use of speech, scene setting, paragraphs…the list goes on. Well done Strathdevon Primary, we all thought you were clever including a current issue to the story…the Royal Wedding with a Scottish flavour!

However some of our class got really into some of the characters and dressed up as them for our storytelling session. We loved taking part and can’t wait to see what follows.

Haggis Harry.
The Hunter.
Using the thesaurus to uplevel words.
Researching facts about Urquhart castle.
We worked together as a team to storymap our ideas and questions.
