P1-3 pupils were learning about the Ring of Brodgar in Orkney. We found out that they were built atleast 4000 years ago. There were 60 large stones in a circle, but now only 27 remain standing. The pupils built their own stones using clay, then we used different materials to make up the heather, grass and water that surrounds the stone circle. Mrs Wilson was really pleased and proud of us – what do you think?
Mrs Main received a musical “cheerio!” from the pupils on her recent retirement. The staff and parents collection gave her a silver cross, a plant, vouchers, money and wine. The P1-3 also wrote a prayer to wish her a long and healthy retirement. Mrs Main has taught at St Thomas’ for over 16 years, she was mostly spotted in the middle class (P4-5), as well as out and about enjoying Outdoor Learning. Mrs Main will also be remembered for her highly creative skills in art and crafts and her excellent guitar playing. She shall be missed, but promised to return to help in Activity Clubs!!
