P6/7 Miss Gordon
North Kessock Ferry and Bridge Exhibition
We went on a trip to the Kessock Bridge to get some inspiration for our writing task and our artwork. When we got back we did some of our artwork and started our writing, we had a choice of three sizes of paper. For our writing we did a poem and an imaginary story. After we had finished we put them forward to the North Kessock Ferry and Bridge Exhibition. On Saturday 17th September we all tried to make it to the North Kessock Hall and see them being displayed

World War II
P6/7 are learning about WWII.
We have been coffee and tea staining paper and writing about imagining life as an evacuee. We have been creating a booklet each about the war and evacuees. In class our reading books are on something about the war, the books are called The Silver Sword and Goodnight Mr Tom. We learned that roughly 60million people died and about 40million of the people that died weren’t even fighting in the war, they were just normal people like me and you. Some people are bringing in books, pictures, medals and even family members to tell stories. We are enjoying this topic so far.

P.E this year has been very good for keeping us fit and healthy because we are running and exercising lots as well as using coordination. We have been out of our breath sometimes but we still keep going.
We have been doing different sports like handball, basketball, hockey, volleyball and football. We have also been doing skipping as a warm up. Our P.E. teachers are Miss Junor
and Mr Holmes.
On Wednesday the 9th of November primary 6/7 went on a class trip to fort George.
On Wednesday 9th November 2016 Miss Gordon and Primry 6/7 took a class trip to Fort George as part of our World War II topic.
We started by being told to line up by a soldier just outside the fort. We then got split into two groups the first group went with the soldier to look at photos and find out lots of facts about WWII. The photos were of things like fake tanks and guns to trick other solders .We got to hold a gun, a soldier’s heath kit, loo roll, an itchy towel and lots more. We then got to practise throwing grenades with tennis balls inside socks. We took turns on throwing them into a bucket and Heather was the first to get one in.
The second group got taken to the museum to look at lots of artefacts that are to do with WWII. We also got to draw one artefact from the museum too. We later switched around so we got to do everything in the fort. Last we went to the gift shops and bought lots of stuff.
It was a fantastic day.
