The classroom has been a hive of shiny activity as the children use Art and DT skills to produce various Christmas decorations... No sneak previews here as you will soon be receiving the real thing!
 
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2014!

Concert 1G info

Some parents may be wondering what tartan, kilts and Scottish monsters are and what exactly we want 1G to wear for the concert.

Tartan is a thick, woollen, checked material. It was worn hundreds of years ago in the Highlands of Scotland. Each family, (Clan) had their own tartan and Chief. For example, the Grant clan has its own tartan.

The kilt is made of tartan and is the traditional dress of Scotland, worn mainly by men, nowadays usually to celebrations and on traditional occasions like weddings.



Monsters refer to the tradition that in Loch Ness a monster lurks. The Loch is so deep that it hasn't been explored thoroughly and several people claim to have seen the monster!
A Loch is a lake!





Basically for the concert, children in 1G should wear something checked. If not anything blue, or blue and white! We will be making a headband in class. 
Thanks!

On Friday 29th November, Mrs Hall's husband, Mick, came in to school to work with 1H. (Mick used to be an Art teacher).
The children worked with 'press print' and printing ink to create bells for a Christmas display in the secondary hall.




The children had a great time mixing colours, rolling out the inks and watching their work appear on the cartridge paper....












 
Do look out for the large circle in the secondary hall where it will be on display with the work from all of the Primary school.....
