December in Primary 7

Primary 7 visited Edinburgh Castle and the Wartime Life Room. They investigated four real life stories of Scots in the Second World War through a mix of real and replica objects in the 1940s inspired room. We then explored the museum and the castle grounds, including the prisoner exhibition and the War Memorial.

Primary 7 did some German baking this week. We made Vanillekipferl and Plätzchen (Vanilla crescents and jam biscuits). The recipes were in German. First, we studied the ingredients to see what words we could recognise. We watched a video to learn the method. The second recipe was presented in a PowerPoint with images. We discussed how we used context, language skills and our prior knowledge to translate what to do. Through applying our skills of translation, we created some very tasty biscuits! If you would like to recreate them at home, the recipes are translated below. Sie waren echt lecker!

We had a festive craft session with our buddies this month. Primary 7 drew and cut out nets for Primary 2 to decorate and take home. They were caring, patient and went out of their way to support their buddies and get to know them.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We will see you back in school on Thursday, 5th of January.
