To celebrate Robert Burns’ birthday, we had a Scottish week in school. Lots of our activities in Class 3 have had a Scottish theme; we have listened to and performed Scottish poems and songs, eaten haggis, neeps and tatties, watched videos of Scottish dancers and listened to bagpipes and other traditional music. For our Burn’s lunch, the haggis was piped in and we enjoyed marching round the school before lunch to the pipe music. Some of our students helped to perform ‘The Ode to a Haggis’. We also prepared Cullen Skink soup in Home Economics that week.
Class 3 enjoyed taking part in the whole school Scottish Assembly. We performed ‘You Cannae Shove Yer Granny aff a Bus’.
Class 3 have been taking part in some messy play activities; experiencing sand, shells and stones. We also took part in a karate taster session which the whole class loved, it was great fun hitting the punch bags and trying out the padded gloves. In our ‘Tastes of the World’ topic we have finished learning about China and are now moving on to Egypt. We’re looking forward to finding out about the pyramids, listening to traditional music and exploring the sounds and other features of mosques.
