We have been working with Miss Traill for the last few weeks on our African Drumming skills, and today we performed what we had learned to the other classes in the school.
Finally, we have the chance to post material onto our class blog! I will endeavour to update this page weekly, starting from after the October break, as this week is quite busy with parents’ evenings on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Meantime, when our Finnish visitors were here recently, P5/6 hosted the Monday morning assembly, welcoming them to the school, and telling them some things about Gifford, East Lothian and Scotland, in a light-hearted way.
After our presentations, some of the Finnish pupils then presented information about their village, Kuvansi, the local town, Varkaus, and some information about Finnish wildlife.
I promised to video the event, which I did, and now I have completed the main video I have been putting together for the Finns from their visit, I have had time to edit footage of the assembly itself and upload it here, below.
If you wish to see the video of the Finnish pupils’ visit, along with bits of the assembly (which includes all the words to the Inventors song!) then please have a look at the blog which is here.
