Our recent international week assembly was a great success with performances from across the school, more Chess success celebrated and a host of amazing international outfits.
P5 took part in a drama workshop as part of International Week. They had to use drama conventions such as still image to recreate part of a Chinese story that was written to teach people about honesty and integrity. In the story the Chinese Emperor set a competition to choose the next Emperor of China, contestants had to grow a plant from a tiny seed, whoever grew the tallest plant would be the next Emperor. The pupils had to design their own competition and create still images to portray.
P5 returned to the National Museum of Scotland today to launch the Mandarin Education video and hunt they assisted in developing. P4/5 were invited along to the launch as well as pupils from 3 other schools in Scotland. P5 had to plan and deliver a presentation before they all went on a hunt to find the Chinese objects. The aim was to learn the main colour on the object in Mandarin. Reporters from the Evening News were in attendance so look out for the article and photos from the launch. All the pupils performed with confidence, I was proud of their enthusiasm and commitment.
Before returning to school we had time to explore the museum and have some fun.
It has been Scots week all week at Dalry Primary.
We had our Scots week visit from The Sorries who taught some of our classes the bodhran and then performed a show of traditional Scottish songs for us.
