Our class winner, Rebekah, for her drawing of a scarecrow.
NSPCC came into school to talk to the class about child protection and the safeguarding of children.
Our first World Around Us topic in P6 is Africa. The children have learnt a greeting in Mandinka which is spoken in West African countries:
”Ab-in-ya-ma” = “Hello, how are you”
”Ab-an-ya-ma” = “I’m doing fine”.
To finish our African topic, Miss Moorhead provided some traditional costumes for the children to dress up in.
MUSIC 🎵 The children were taught a tune called Degu,Degu, Degu. It’s a funny song about a man whose trousers were too big and he had to wear a belt. Some of the children played the bongo drum in accompaniment.
Thank you to Rebekah’s aunt who sent in some souvenirs from Ethiopia for us to look at.
