WWII Objects

For tomorrow, have your object chosen, decide on who your object belonged to, and at least two things that your object has experienced with its owner. Try to be as original as you can. The best stories will be going up on the wall at Fort George for everyone to read!

Hot Seating!

Today in topic, we were learning all about VE – Day. This special day marks victory in Europe. Nazi Germany finally surrendered their armed forces on 8th May 1945. We listened to Winston Churchill’s well known speech where he addresses Britain explaining that we had won the War.

After this, we got into pairs and had to make up at least five questions that we would ask Winston Churchill about that day. Then it was time for HOT-SEATING!  This is when you play the role of someone else; put yourself in their shoes and answer some questions from an Interviewer. In pairs, we had to play the role of either Winston Churchill or the Interviewer.

It was great fun. I will try to upload some of the interviews soon…See you all tomorrow!

Star Writers!!

Congratulations to Aaron Houston, Fraser Calder, Adam Doughty and Sean Macleod for being my super writers this week. We had to write a poem about conflict in the world today, in the style of Haiku. Haiku poems follow a particular  structure; you have to have the correct number of syllables in each line. It is tricky but good fun at the same time. Well done everyone!

Easter Bonnet Competition

Lynsey Easton

This afternoon Lynsey Easton from the Highlander’s Museum at Fort George brought objects and uniforms in to the school for the children to see and try on. We found it very interesting. Some of the objects we had never seen before.


Today we looked at some War Poems; they were awfully sad! On Wednesday we are going to write our own Poems about conflict.

For homework, you have to find out about a country’s conflict that is happening in the world just now. For example, you might want to look for information about the problems in Syria, Ukraine or Afganistan. Take notes of the facts that you find and bring them with you on Wednesday for Story Writing.

Good luck!
