It has been lovely to see lots of smiley faces back in school after the October break. P6/5 have got straight back into the swing of things, with lots of hard work already this week.
Our new topic for term 2 is ‘Scots who changed the world’.
This week we have started to learn about Mary Seacole. She looked after wounded and sick soldiers during the Crimean War. Her Dad was Scottish and her Mum was Jamaican.
We studied the work of expressionist artist Alma Thomas and created our own art inspired by her colourful style. Alma believed that creativity should be independent of gender or race.
In PE, P6/5 enjoyed skipping to music. There was lots of competition to see who could skip for the longest without stopping.
