What a busy term it has been in P6N! We’ve had a great time learning all sorts of things! We had a trip to the museum to learn all about Victorian Shetland, ‘Victorian Day’ in class, a trip to the Natural Selection Exhibition up at the old Anderson High School, and a visit from Ian Clarke, education outreach worker from the Scottish Parliament.
Yesterday was a special day, it was Pancake Day and our Teddy Bears’ Picnic day!
We made pancakes and sandwiches for our picnic. We decorated our pancakes to look like teddies. We danced with our teddies; we sanG with our teddies and we ate with our teddies. Primary 1 had a super time.
We had a fantastic time at our Chinese New Year party this afternoon.
We tried Chinese foods; we used chopsticks as part of a game and we did a dragon dance! We also tried on Chinese clothes and answered questions about Chinese New Year. We listened to Chinese music and made up our own Dragon style dances too.
It’s been a busy few weeks in P6N! We’ve made wax resist pictures for Halloween/bonfire night, made a start on our Christmas salt dough decorations, one of the pupils brought in his ‘War Hammer’ figures to show us and we dressed in our pyjamas for Children in Need!
Yesterday we made pancakes to practice using measuring equipment independently – electronic scales and measuring jugs – and to show we could follow instructions successfully.
We followed a recipe in small groups and Miss Henry didn’t even need to help us! It was great practice for Secondary 1 Home Economics at the Anderson High School, which lots of us are very much looking forward to.
Today we spent the morning making pancakes and after break we went to the flower park with Sanna to do some golf putting and play short tennis. In the afternoon the pupils went to the Clickimin broch to do some sketching with Miss Birnie.
