Our focus was Scotland. We asked questions and found out about the country using the internet, books and our own experiences.

We enjoyed reading Katie Morag and the Two Grandmothers by Mairi Hedderwick. During literacy we wrote about the appearance, behaviour and personality of Grannie Island and Grandma Mainland.

On Friday, it was non-uniform day and the children all looked fantastic. In PE, we learned about The Highland Games and adapted a few to create The Ashley Games. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed ‘Toss the Welly’, Highland Dancing (The Flying Scotsman) and ‘Toss the Caber’.

At snack time, we ate shortbread (courtesy of Mr Jewitt) and drank milk or water.  Mrs Jewitt had a sneaky Irn-Bru!

Mrs Todd also joined us and read The Kilted Coo by Rachel McGaw. It received a thumbs up from us!

Miss Davison really enjoyed watching an episode of Katie Morag during an indoor break!


Tossing the caber!

Welly Wanging!


One of our pupils was off on our last day of International Week and missed out on wearing this beautiful Scottish inpsired outfit.
