Rob came to talk to us about the Roman fort near Melrose and to show us some of the artefacts that have been found there. We got to hold a 1800 year old Roman playing piece from a game and also got to try on some replica armour. It was great fun but we decided being a soldier must have been hard work as the armour was very heavy!
P5 looked at the language, landscapes and geography of Scotland – we did mapping (thinking about cities, towns , landmarks and rivers), different art work featuring Scottish landscapes, and wrote different texts in Scots.
During our mini topic on Scottish geography and language we enjoyed experimenting with different media to create some beautiful Scottish landscapes. We read lots of texts in Scots and even had a go at writing our own.
