The children in P5 ran a French Cafe which served breakfast to the children in P5/6 this morning offering drinks and French pastries.
After break the P5’s were served lunch by the P5/6 children in their Spanish Tapas Cafe. Great fun was had by all and they all got a chance to practice ordering food in French and Spanish.
The group have arrived safely at the Tate Gallery in London and managed to get enough time to send us some photos during their lunch break.
The children had a surprise visit at assembly from Community Safety Officer, Mark Robinson and PCs Darling and Lindsay who presented them with a printed fabric to be displayed in the school showing their art work from the bridge. The print is provided by local company BeFab Be Creative. The pictures are copies of the 48 portraits they donated to the anti graffiti initiative, ShipShape Albion.
It was a delight to receive an invite to the Burns’ Supper staged by our P5, 6 and 7 pupils. We knew we were in for something special when it stated that there would be ‘magic treats and ice cauld Irn Bru.’ With singing, dancing, poetry recitals and funny sketches it was a fantastic afternoon. The pupils were brilliant as they entertained guests from the community including Jameson Place, organisers from the Leith festival and even Mr Short managed to drop by too. We were waited on hand and foot as we enjoyed a traditional Burns’ supper with steaming hot haggis, tatties and neeps. It demonstrated to me just what a talented and passionate group of children we have here at Lorne. Also, the hard work and professionalism of the staff shone through. I’d like to say a very big THANK YOU to all involved. We will endeavour to make this an annual event.
The ladies and gents from Jamieson Place have kindly donated £50 to the school. It’s our intention to purchase a silver salver to serve our haggis on in coming years and to have it engraved to remind us of our strong links with them.
P4, P5 & P5/6 children are having ukulele lessons as part of the national youth music initiative. They got off to a great start last week and love playing the ukulele already.
Author Lari Don visited P4-7 to talk about her books and writing. The children were involved in developing a trapping story idea and got time to ask fantastic questions with the best being from Caleb in P7
“If you were stuck on a desert island with only enough equipment to write one book what would you write?”
The children were then given the opportunity to purchase one of her books which were signed with a personal message for them.
