P6N and P6S were invited to the Holocaust memorial service at the Town Hall on Friday. They read poems that they had written in class with the theme of ‘Torn from Home’ and participated in some singing. Finally, a pupil from each class was asked to lay a wreath on the cenotaph. They did extremely well and we are very proud of them all!
Today we have been having a go at using an ink quill to write in Hebrew. This was part of our RME topic on Judaism. We all agreed it was really challenging- but great fun!

On Thursday 31st of August both Primary 5 classes went to Mareel to watch Dhanak (Rainbow) which was being shown as part of the Screenplay festival.
Before going we watched the trailer and then worked in groups to predict what we thought was going to happen in the film.
Everyone really enjoyed the film which was in Hindi with subtitles. This was a new experience for all. We then attended a workshop with other schools to discuss and retell the story of the film.
Since watching Dhanak both classes have been researching facts about India and using these to create fact files. We have also begun writing our own adventure story.
Both classes would like to thank the parent helpers who accompanied us on the trip.
This morning Primary 1s delivered a very interesting and engaging assembly to P1-3. They told an interactive story about Noah’s ark and sang to all the children.
The feedback from their audience was that it was very good and awesome because the story was good, they spoke in nice clear voices, they did some actions and sang to them.
