Primary 7: A Few Reminders

Morning everyone!

Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and found some time to relax 🙂

As always, homework is on Teams, but please see below for a few wee reminders as we progress through Term 2.

  1. Water bottles. Please come to school with a filled water bottle. These should be filled up at either break or lunch. If you are arriving at school with a filled water bottle, you should not need to fill up more than once a day.
  2. Unless you have been spoken to specifically, please do not bring any of the following to school: rubix cubes, fidget spinners, magnets, or any other form of small toy. These should not be coming to school due to COVID guidelines.
  3. Homework – this should be completed every week and is available on Teams. Please speak to your class teacher straight away if you are having problems uploading or completing tasks.
  4. Outdoor shoes: As we are now heading into Winter, please ensure you have field shoes with you for gym days. These can be kept in the cloakroom.
  5. Waterproof jackets: As we are now in October, jackets should be worn during playtimes and lunchtimes. If you get warm when running around during gym, please bring a small waterproof jacket or a light jacket which can be kept in your bag for use during this time.

Thank you and have a fabulous week,

Primary 7 teachers.

Burns Cookbook Task – 05.10.20

Good Afternoon!

Today we will be researching recipes for our Burns Night cookbook. Recipes should be inspired by a poem from Robert Burns. You can choose your poem/song from the list below:

 

Starters (P7H) Mains (P7S) Desserts (P7C)
‘To A Mouse’ ‘A Man’s A Man For A’ That’ ‘A Red, Red Rose’
‘The Silver Tassie’ ‘Scots Wa Hae’ ‘Auld Lang Syne’
‘Cauld Frosty Morning’ ‘A Winter Night’ ‘Auld Rob Morris’
‘To A Louse’ ‘Tam O’Shanter’ ‘Highland Mary’
‘To A Mountain Daisy’ ‘Killiecrankie’ ‘Highland Laddie’
‘Up In The Morning Early’ ‘My Heart’s in the Highlands’ ‘Banks of Cree’
‘The Primrose’ ‘The Birks of Aberfeldy’
‘Sweet Afton’

 

Below are the links for recipes (both traditional Scottish and Burns Night favourites) to help inspire your dishes. If you are doing our main meals, they should all contain some form of haggis.

Remember, ingredients in our recipes should be able to be sourced locally and not have too much of an impact on our carbon and food footprints. We should also be mindful of those with different dietary requirements – vegetarian, vegan and gluten free as well as others. These recipes are only for inspiration – swap, change and remove ingredients to make sure your recipe is to your taste and to create your own individual dish J

Happy Hunting!
