To end our topic on WW2, we asked friends and family to join the rest of the school at our Assembly. The boys and girls had been very busy, organising their own presentations of what they have learned. We used a selection of songs, poems, speeches, talks and sketches to show our learning. We also brought in cakes we had made, (with the help of our families – thank you!) so that we could celebrate VE Day in our classrooms.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to come along and help to make our afternoon so enjoyable.
Congratulations to two of our Primary 6 girls who took part in a cookery competition at Knox Academy. They were partnered with an S3 pupil, and together they were to make a pasta dish and a chocolate cake. They did very well and came second. The girls were allowed to bring the dishes they had made back to school and the smell was delicious!!
Today primaries 2-7 joined together for an Easter problem-solving challenge. In groups of 5, they had to build a tower as tall as possible, which would hold a creme egg without falling over. To achieve this, they used lots of different skills: collaboration, co-operation, reasoning, being adaptable, to name just a few. Not all towers were successful when we tried them out at the end, but some worked really well, and one was extremely tall!!
Well done everyone – it’s always lovely to see you working so well together.
