Panto Project – 2017

This week P5-7 have been busy researching …

What is a pantomime?

The story of the Gaiety in Ayr.

and

The story of Cinderella

This resulted in some wonderful presentations!!!!     

Oh yes they did!

The materials provided by the Gaiety in Ayr had activities at CfE 1st, 2nd and 3rd levels.
The activities covered the curricular areas of Literacy, Numeracy, English, Social Studies, Expressive Arts and Health and Wellbeing.

Can’t wait to go and see Cinderella at the Gaiety next week.

Dyslexia Rap……Get busy with Dizzy

Our talented pupils have made a video of their Dyslexia Friendly School rap.  We are working towards our SILVER award.

Get busy, know the shizzy, with Dizzy in the hizzy…..

*So you’ve got dyslexia!

That don’t mean you can’t go far.

Don’t dare think that you are dumb.

Find ways to make learning fun.*

 

What does dyslexia mean?

Words and letters aren’t as they seem.

Sometimes numbers too,

Decide to play tricks on you.

**

What can you do about it?

Give up, fold your arms and just sit?

Annoy others and grab and hit?

Stress out ‘cause you feel you don’t fit?

**

That’s not the way to go.

You have the right to learn and grow.

Let your teachers, parents and friends know.

‘Please help let my smarts shoooowww’

**

Use the tools all around the class.

When asked a question don’t always pass.

Take your time and have a think.

Your brilliance is on the brink.

**

Wear glasses if you need.

Cool coloured overlays can help you read.

Talk about how you feel.

It happens, it’s fine, it’s real!

**

We hope you enjoyed our rap.

Now I’m ready for a nap.

If you need help remember to shout.

Someone will help you out.

**

Dizzy is our new DFS mascot and is a very resourceful octopus!
