As well as having their normal art and PE lessons today Primary 4/5 enjoyed doing Viking craft with Mrs Leslie. They made super pictures of Viking galleys.
They also did the finishing touches to their Viking helmets today. They gave themselves Viking warrior nicknames like: Bobby the Brave, Magnus the Magnificent or Ava the Adventurer and wrote them in Viking Runes on their helmets.
On Thursday 18th November Mr Rose brought the Planetarium in to school. We all had a brilliant afternoon learning all about the star constellations and the stories from ancient Greek myths telling how they got their names. It was a great way to get everyone interested in the stars and to go out and look at the night sky!
