Nursery Zoo trip for Chinese Culture Week

The snow cleared and the sun came out and we had a brilliant day at the zoo!

We actually got to see the pandas – they were amazing!  We saw so many other animals too and really close up – look at our photos of the lions, tigers – ‘ROAR’.  Alden is our very brave new friend of the lion!  After a whole day out we were really, really tired (some of us fell asleep on the bus!!!!)  but we had some great memories to take home with us!

P3B Scots Week

Primary 3B have had a busy two weeks finding out about Scottish traditions and culture.

Over the weeks they have had a go at making their own tartan, found out about some famous Scots, learned and performed a poem in Scots and finished it all off with a glass of Irn Bru and piece of shortbread!

The children were particularly interested in learning about traditional clothing. Miss Low brought in a kilt, sporran, shoes and sgian dhu and Callum shared some photos of him wearing a kilt at his mum and dad’s wedding. Miss Low also brought in a Highland dance outfit which Saanvi modelled for us beautifully. After this, the pupils all had great fun making their own Scottish outfits!

P2B Chinese Culture Week

P2B today created their own dragons and listened to a legend about dragons.

We had the Panda Boxes this afternoon and the children worked in groups playing different board games and saying numbers and colours in Chinese.

They listened to different types of Chinese music, we compared the music and developed a dance from the different movements children came up with. It was lots of fun making up our own dance!
