Evacuation!

_DSC3974

Our brave P7 evacuees left early this morning on their coach bound for Coldingham! So many worried faces, unsure about their futures…

This event has been running between partner schools for years now, and on arrival the children will be billeted with new “families” then spend the day enjoying WWII related activities, from baking carrot biscuits to learning how to jive.

The accompanying staff members even dressed up too; see the screen inside the front door for more pictures!

 

Scots Week

Primary 2 will be finding out interesting facts about Scotland!

We will be researching places to visit, famous Scots, our weather and things typically Scottish such as haggis, tartan, thistles and golden eagles.

The children will also be listening to familiar stories written in Scottish language. They will be investigating familiar well known expressions and use them oral and written literacy.

As part of our Scottish week the children will learn to recite and sing “Auld Lang Syne” when learning about Robert Burns.

At the end of the week there is a family ceilidh to which everyone is invited!
