We have been reading and listening to some Scots poems this week. Yesterday we had a try at writing out own. Click on the thumbnails to read them.
This week we had a scratch challenge.
I asked the children to make a sprite in scratch that would draw a random rectangle every time it was clicked. Bonus points for asking what the Area was and then checking the answer. Lots of us managed to work out how to draw random rectangles, but Kaitlyn was the first one to get a working solution. She used lots of skills, using variables, comparison, repeats and operations! She show she was a problem solver and and independent learner.
The Green flag will give you a new question.
We are looking at the Scots Language this week and the Biggies have been creating Scunners.
We got the idea from: Hunners o Scunners Scots in Schools
Hunners o Scunners means a lot of horrors, we created our own Scunner or Scots horror character.
We have not manages hunners, we are wee class and have a few folk off!
