Kids cel­e­brate na­tional treats

The Galloway News - - SCOTTISH TO THE CORE -

Chil­dren from pri­maries 5, 5/6, 6, 6/7 and 7 held a Scot­tish Day at Cas­tle Dou­glas Pri­mary.

The pupils were able to taste Locker­bie ched­dar, hag­gis, oat­cakes,Tun­nock’s caramel wafers and Irn-Bru. And they rated each prod­uct as part of their taste test.

They also learned to play Cale­do­nia on ukule­les and used their re­search skills to take part in an on­line trea­sure hunt. By us­ing Google Maps, they made a vir­tual jour­ney to travel around Scot­land and find the an­swers to clues.

They also worked in teams to de­velop an ad­vert for a new Scot­tish drink, film­ing it in front of the green screen. The clips are now avail­able on the school blog.

And they cre­ated art­work in­spired by the work of Steven Brown with their gen­eral knowl­edge of Scot­land put to the test in a Big Fat Scot­tish Quiz.

The day fo­cused on col­lab­o­ra­tive work­ing and the skills re­quired for good team work.
