We have had an excellent day today that has been filled with culture, visitors, world issues, topic work and language.
We were learning more about antonyms and some children will be doing a homework sheet based on them. It was super to see a synonym diagram in one of the reading books too.
Stuart Windsor from Christian Solidarity Worldwide visited the school and spoke to P3-6 about freedom and also shared a story about a young boy in North Korea. He was very interesting and what he spoke about was very thought provoking too.
Mr Creighton addressed the haggis again this year after if was wonderfully piped in by Alice's dad.
There were a number of children who really enjoyed eating the traditional haggis, neeps and tatties.
We were delighted to welcome both Alice's mum and dad into the classroom this afternoon to hear about the bagpipes and see the full Highland dress. Everyone enjoyed singing along to Auld Lang Syne too.
Mrs Speirs also came to speak with us about Robert Burns. We then did some work on our Scotland topic.
