We were all learning how to multiply with the Japanese strategy. The Japanese way was a great strategy as you just make up a sum e.g. 2x4, so what you do is place 2 lines parallel and another 4 across the 2 other lines and you count all the intersecting ones . We all enjoyed the task and would want to do it again as it was very enjoyable. By Clara Rose.
It was hard at the start because we hadn't ever done anything like that before. We all got used to it after a couple of tries. Finally, some of us thought It was easier than our usual way. Others thought it was easier to do the usual way because lots of lines can be a little confusing. By Brona and Shane.

A Christmas Story
This year P4,P5,P6 and P7 preformed 'A Christmas story' ,a Christmas play which was about the Nativity .We had three weeks to get our parts for the play, learn our lines , learn dances and songs and gather up costumes, but we did it. We performed the play in Atticall Chapel in front of a packed audience. Primary Seven had the main roles as it was our last play in primary school. Some Primary Sixes got speaking roles e.g. one of the angels , Granda and the two children. Other Primary Sixes were soldiers and angels which didn't speak, but they still had to learn the songs and plenty of actions. Primary Four and Five sang beautifully in the choir.
Many of the primary seven children have said that they feel a lot more confident acting ,singing and dancing in front of people now that they have preformed the play to a massive, flabbergasted audience . Linda came to the chapel and played music for us to sing our songs to. On the night everyone did amazing and the feedback from the crowds of happy play goers was very positive. It was a great experience and I would do it again.

Our flabbergasting, astounding Christmas Production
Everyone had to audition for the part they wanted in the play. After the cast was announced, we were given our scripts to learn our lines. We went down to the chapel for all our practices. We realised it was harder than we thought it was to give expression, actions and loudness in our voices. Some people even had to create and perform their own dances, which was allowing them to add their own ideas. We all had to organise our own costumes. Our homework for weeks was to learn lines and songs. We had a dress rehearsal and went through the whole play and the songs with Linda. Mrs Morrow prepared the props for us. By Emma and Leanne.
Amazing Victorian Christmas decorations
Amazing Victorian Christmas decorations
We were given the task to find out about a Victorian Christmas and then ,make Victorian Christmas Decorations. Everybody made their own item e.g. Baubles, crackers, wreathes, presents and lots more. We were given a time frame to finish which was a five day period , everybody did really well . We then presented them to the class and explained how we made it, it was great fun. We are now going to write instructions on how to make it, as we are concentrating on procedural writing at the moment. We have put the decorations up around the class and on our class tree.

We all took part in celebrating European Languages Day. We dressed up in different countries dress. In groups, we chose a country, and we found out interesting facts and information about our particular country. The countries that were chosen were: France, Germany, Belgium, Italy and Spain. We researched and learnt how to say "Hello" in each language. We all brought In an item or a food (e.g Tirimisu, gazpachio and sangria.) We had a feast with all the succulent food the class brought in.The feast was a blast and everybody had fun.
