In class I had an Ancient Egyptian feast. Egypt also had very big pyramids and made mummies. Ancient Egyptians believed that they would get a new happy life when they died. Ancient Egyptians ate grapes, figs dates and other things. Taylor P3/4
Long ships are what the Vikings used. They are long. The big sails make them go fast on the water. Also they are made out of wood and wood can be smashed. They had fierce heads on the end of the long ships to frighten people. And they had strong men to pull the oars if there was no wind to move the long ship. On the long ship they had ropes to hold the sail up. We are painting Viking long ships in class. Chantelle P4
In Tarradale Primary each week we do achievement logs. Achievement logs are big books that we put our achievements from school and things that we have done at home. This week we are taking our achievement logs home in a big black bin bag! At home we are allowed two pages to write and put pictures in about things we have done at home.

On Tuesday we all went outside for a few hours and it was very snowy and very cold! On Wednesday we got to stay outside for the morning and made snow sculptures! It was very fun we had a very wonderful time outside. Thursday was awfully wet and soggy aswell as being…cold! People made snowmen, dogs, Olaf out of frozen and…. igloos. It was really fun and we loved it!! I hope you enjoyed it too. Poppy P6 Holly P 4
The Speedy Readers is a new group that reads a chapter as fast as they can on the computer. They keep a folder of the things they have read. Speedy Readers do their reading on the computer everyday.
Our community and school raised money to buy new reading books. Right now we are not taking them home but we will be soon. We are reading them in class. There are Chuckler books, Graphic Novels, Treetops , non-fiction books and myths and legends. We gave all the old books to some schools that don’t have that many books. We keep our new books in the GP room.
Bombing & Ration Books
London was badly effected by bombing. Germany was sending submarines and they blew up the ships that were taking food to London. The Germans gave the London people ration books to get food.
