Primary 5V have been learning about the Scottish Wars of Independence and last week Clanranald came to tell us more about life during that time.
After the visit, everyone jotted down some notes about what they had learned. We’ve added some of these orally to the pictures we took on the day.
Have a look/listen and let us know what you think.

Last week we watched a video about how to write an ‘If Only…’ poem and we decided to try to write our own one with the same title. We chose whether we wanted to work with a partner or work on our own, and we brainstormed our ‘if only….’ ideas.
We made a PowerPoint slide to illustrate each idea. We also recorded our verses and then put them all together in Windows Movie Maker to make one big ‘If Only….’ class poem.
We’ve got some more ideas about more ‘If Only…..’ poems – but meanwhile have a look/listen below at our first attempt and please leave a comment to let us know what you think.

On Thursday it was National Poetry Day and we had a whole school assembly so that all the classes could share the poems that they had written.
The theme was ‘Stars’ and Primary 5V decided to write Friendship Cinquains .
We interviewed a good friend and asked them to describe themselves then we wrote poems.
We wrote them again onto a Powerpoint slide then saved them as a jpeg.
After that we put them all into Photostory 3 then we all voted what music we should use. We got the music from this site.
On Friday we showed them on the big screen to the rest of the school.
We thought they looked great!
Leave us a comment if you like our poems!
