I forgot that it was an early lunch today – this meant that when I sent the children to lunch their chosen meal may not have been available. They did however all receive a lunch. Huge apologies, I completely forgot, and in a rare moment my class also forgot to remind me!
a very sheepish Mr Blair
Congratulations to all of primary 3-4 and primary 4 for our class assembly. I could be (AM!) biased but I thought it was great! The enthusiasm and personality of the children really shone through. I’m a huge believer in letting the pupils drive their own assemblies and I feel that these guys and their performance are a testament to what can be achieved when children are given the responsibility and trusted. I’m delighted! Well done everyone, you were brilliant!
The assembly is scheduled (hopefully, I have a reputation for posting blogs that I swiftly need to edit or retract! 😂) for Monday the first of April and will begin at 2pm. Parents of Primary 3/4 and Primary 4 pupils are invited to attend and can take their seats between 1:45 and 1:55.
I’m out of school this Monday but am hopeful an official letter will go home on the subject.
We’re doing a Columba rap but as yet don’t have the words…
Try to think up simple lines, like (but ideally better than) the ones you see below:
We’ve finished his story
We hope we didn’t bore ye
He was born
On a floating stone
There was a book
He shouldn’t have took
It caused a commotion
He had to leave over an ocean
He stopped at Iona
I’ll make it home yeah!
Post them under here and there’s a really good chance they’ll be included!
Can we bring in as many toy swords and shields as we can get our hands on please?
Here is a small piece of text for the children who wish to play Columba in our school assembly. Just practise the Columba lines ( in bold). I’ll read the rest. Good luck!
Columba: Lugneus – we will need that boat. You are our best
swimmer. Will you swim across and bring it back to us?
Lugneus: Oh master. I will surely drown. What of the creature? It will eat me.
Columba: You will not drown. No harm will befall you.
…enter Nessie, rearing up ready to attack Lugneus…
Lugneus: Help! Help me please!
Columba: GO NO FURTHER! DO NOT TOUCH HIM!
GO BACK AT ONCE!
…Nessie leaves, banished to Loch Ness…
Columba: It’s okay Lugneus. You’ll be safe now.
