Last week Room 6 completed their interdisciplinary topic on Burns by having a Burns Supper and Scottish food tasting session.
The children tasted a range of Scottish foods including Haggis, neeps and tatties, tablet, shortbread, oatcakes and smoked salmon all washed down with a wee dram (of Irn Bru). The children recorded which of the foods they enjoyed and those they disliked. There was singing, dancing and a cheers to Robert Burns!
We have been learning all about Robert Burns in preparation for Burns Day on the 25th January. We have been learning some poems and songs and recorded our early practice of Auld Lang Syne. A special mention to Ellie M Scott and Jack Montgomery who did outstanding singing during these lessons.
Due to lots of other school events we took our gym lesson back to the classroom and did some good old fashioned circuit training. With a combination of Jumping Jacks, Lunges, Sit Ups and Aerobics we are continuing to work on becoming healthier and fitter individuals.
In IDL we have been exploring food chains and writing captions. In Literacy here are some examples of our dictation practice with a partner.
Room 5 have been exploring Space throughout term 1.
We really wanted to learn about rockets and how they took off. We decided to do a science experiment with alka seltzer, plastic film containers and some water.The rockets workedvery very well and flew like a real spaceship!
We have written instructions for whoever would like to try it out!
Primary 6/5 enjoyed making Victorian Cheese twists on Monday morning. They have been learning about the Victorians and how they enjoyed this food as part of ‘Afternoon Tea’. We used this recipe as a focus for our writing lesson afterwards.
