Weekly Website Whizzkid – Lee MacLean EP7

On Monday the 14th we all came back from the Easter holidays. We were asked to choose any article from a newspaper. We cut it out and stuck it into our reading jotters and we then had to write a summary of what it was about. This is so that we can work on our reading skills for use in our literacy circles. We also did some Alta maths which we did online on the computers in the ICT room.


On Wednesday the 16th James’s grandfather, Jock Murray, came in to talk to us.  We had all been working on personal talks on a subject of our choice.  James had chosen to speak about his granddad and invited him in so we could ask him some questions.  He has lived a really interesting life and it was good to get a chance to speak to him.

Na Seann Eipheitich

This term G4/5 studied the Ancient Egyptians and used this topic as a basis for literacy tasks.

We worked in groups and reported back to the class on the importance of the River Nile to them. We enjoyed  showing off our “Wow” adjectives in our poems about the Nile crocodile.

Our main focus was looking at the importance of evidence from the past.

We enjoyed writing our names in hieroglyphs on cartouches.       

We also invited Jack Duncan, student of archaeology, to talk to us about the work of an archaeologist,

He gave us a really interesting presentation and answered all our questions.

Mrs Duncan, who is Jack’s Mum, kindly helped us to write an Egyptian song, which we performed at the whole school assembly.

Sheinn sinn cuideachd an oran ” Chaidh mi sios chun an amhainn an-de..” a dh’ ionnsaich sinn sa chlas Seinn. You can listen to the two songs by following the link.

EP6/7 News by Connor Cherrie

This week in class we have been busy making sushi as part of our Japan topic.  We made it in time for our parents to come in and try it.  We didn’t think they liked it very much!  In maths we have started working on fractions. Today we all did our individual talks.  They were all very interesting. It is now the holidays!

G1-3 Literacy Project

We have been working with the G1-2 class from Stornoway Primary on our Literacy Project this term.  They all wrote letters to us and we replied to them.  It is great to have pen-pals and to have made new friends.
