In P6a this week we had a visitor who could recite the whole of Robert Burns’s poem ‘Tam ‘o’ Shanter’. we were impressed with his performance. Here are some of the classes feedback.
Casey: He was very funny and a really good actor it is amazing how he could memorise all those lines. He was amazing .
Miya : It was very interesting and funny he had a very good memory too.
Lee: He can memorise so much he is such a good poet.
We are excited about learning and reciting our poem ‘To a Mouse’ by Robert Burns

On Monday morning as we entered our classroom we noticed something was different……..an naughty elf had joined our class! We’ve had much fun this week discovering what mischief ‘Elfis’ has been up to during the night. Don’ t worry we are keeping a record of his activity to report it to Ms Ogden.
On Friday 15 December we’re inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
The whole school and nursery will be taking part, with everyone getting the chance to show the world their silly side by wearing their favourite festive knits for the day.
We’re asking pupils to make a £1 donation, or whatever they can give, to help save children’s lives around the world.
The money they raise will help Save the Children give the world’s forgotten children a brighter future. It could help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.
And you won’t need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun – simply decorate an old woolly to create your own crafty masterpiece, or wear something festive.
We’d really appreciate your help to make Christmas Jumper Day a huge success.
With your support we’re looking forward to a woolly great day!
This week in science we concluded our bread experiment. We found out that freezing bread is the most effective to preserve bread. This would be helpful during WW11 when food was rationed.
In music we worked with Connor and Stuart to write, learn and sing our new Christmas song. This will be played at our Christmas performance.
Secret word: Snow angels
