P2c Literacy and Languages Week and St Andrew’s Day

We have had a very busy Literacy and Languages week. In class we read many books including ‘Mr Tiger Goes Wild’, ‘Katie Morag’, ‘The Gruffalo’, ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’ and ‘The Gruffalo’ in Scots. We read and learned many Scots words and we had a quiz to guess the meaning of the Scots words in the story. We discussed the adjectives used to describe the Gruffalo and made super Gruffalo designs. We visited the book fair and had the opportunity to choose a new book.  On St Andrew’s Day we learned about St Andrew the Patron Saint of Scotland and designed the Scottish Flag and made tartan designs and did Scottish dancing to Scottish music in class. Some of us wore something tartan to school. We have been practising our colours and numbers and greetings in French and saying “je m’appelle” and singing “Bonjour, Au Revoir” to each other! We made colourful flower petals using our French colour words and made “je m’appelle” speech bubbles for our French wall. We saw a funny show by Macastory and designed a poster about it. During the week we read our choice book during DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) and on our Friday Open Morning we shared our work and our learning with our families. We had the chance to visit the school Christmas Fair on the 1st December. Thank you for all the donations towards the class hampers!
