This week has been a week of wonderful learning in Primary 6; we begun the week with Futsal and enjoyed being outside learning new skills. As the week has gone on we have been busy learning and preparing for the Burns Assembly. We have had such fun editing a poem to make it our own. I am sure you will enjoy it. If you were not able to join us we have put it here for you to read.
Meh granny never had the things
That maist fowk hae the day,
She never watched a NETFLIX show
Or heard Spotify play.
She never yaised a Nerf Gun
Or shopped in B and M.
She always yaise a tea cosey
An‘ ended with Amen.
Meh granny never ate Nandos
Or wore designer boots
She never drank a can o’ bru
Or tasted passion fruits.
She never smelt the scent of Greggs
O’ eaten a vindaloo
An’ she never played an X box.
Facebook ,she never knew.
Meh granny never wore a bikini,
No even in her teens.
She never wore a mini skirt
Or Primark’s skinny jeans.
She never had her hair in spikes
Or dyed it blue and white,
An’ she never had her airms tattoed
Or partied for a night.
Meh granny never had her own hoose
Wi’ mod cons like we hay
The kitchen was her main room,
The loaby her hallway.
The carpets were but clootie rugs
That she’d made piece by piece,
An’ her vacuum wis a besom heid
That worked wi’ elbow grease.
Alas, meh granny’s no longer living near
She lives in a care home
She’s sairly missed, but nontheless
That’s whaur she’ll hae tae be
Hoo’ever—should she get tae hear
O’ a’ the things we’ve got,
I’m shair she’ll hobble onto a bus
An’ come back here like a shot.
We have continued to learn about the devastation in Australia, and wrote a story as if we were one of the animals caught up in the fires. This writing opportunity allowed us to write in the first person as well as carefully consider how to include each of the senses. Mr Reed even put some of our work up on display as it was so well written.
We have also been given the opportunity to explore electrical circuits and even build circuits which was great fun, there was lots of ‘lightbulb’ moments.
We have been told that we will be continuing our partnership with Donaldson School and sessions will begin again next Friday.
