The first week back after Christmas was Scots week in school. We learned lots of different Scottish words such as fantoosh, breeks, drookit and clarty, and we enjoyed using them in the classroom and the playground. We have made a Kist for a Scottish display in our classroom and have been busy drawing pictures of Scottish stereotypes and Mr Eegit to go inside it. We have also used our new knowledge of Scots words to help us follow clues on a haggis hunt around our classroom. We have learned Auld Lang Syne, Loch Lomond and Flower of Scotland in music this week and we had a competition to see who could sing the best. It was between the people sitting on the carpet and those sitting in their seats. The people on the carpet won!
We have also set a new reading target and we are challenging ourselves to read 2 million words by the February holiday! We are hoping we will manage as we will get to have a celebration if we are successful!

On the 25th, 26th and 27th of November P6/7 and P7 showed 3 viewings of panto pandemonium.
All the people in the show were either in the choir or had main parts. The show was very good especially on the 27th as it was dark outside so the lights looked better for on the stage.

This year p 6/7 and p7 performed panto pandemonium. In our practices we all went through a lot of hard work. We were learning all of the songs and the main characters had to learn there scripts off by heart which must have been hard. After the three shows we felt that all the hard work was worth it because it was lots of fun. Thank you to all the helpers that helped and to our teachers for helping us in our practices. Also a big thank you to our audiences. We all hope you enjoyed it!!
