What a hive of creative activity on the Top Floor today! Balloons, butterflies, cellos, trumpets, clarinets, harmonicas, Hawaiian shirts, shades and tigers were just some of the props used by all three P7 classes to try to recreate clips from BBC Music’s “God Only Knows“single sold in aid of Children in Need. Laurence even brought in his own spotlight! Ruaridh had a great wig and many thanks to Weston in P4 for dressing up as a tiger. Clips were studied, storyboarded and timed as P7s got to work with their iPads throughout the morning. And they did this very quietly and calmly, so as not to disturb the fabulous Primary 3 Dance Show for parents which was taking place in the Hall. A joyful – if busy! – morning, and a great credit to their very game teachers. We have also discovered that Mrs Nowell is the Beach Boys’ Number One fan!
