‘In science we had to build a tower out of paper. It was tricky because it kept falling down but we had a growth mindset. The school value it demonstrated was resilient.’ Kai

‘We went outside for outdoor learning with Miss Walton and Mr Stone. We needed a fire but we kept a safe distance away from it.’ Matthew

‘We were doing our Rabbie Burns poem. Our poem is called ‘Up in the Morning Early” Zahara

‘My group and I were building a tower out of paper and ours was the tallest. It was about 80cm tall’ Aimee

‘We were creating mythical creatures using Harry Potter as a theme. We had to illustrate and write all about it.’ Nicole

Please remember we have our Beauty and the Beast Panto on Thursday afternoon 🙂

This week we are talking Scots and ‘Your Voice, Your Choice’. We hope you enjoy our list of words. How many do you know ? Do you have a favourite one we missed?
