Cold Nights… November in Form Five

The weather forecasters have been warning us about ‘a cold snap’ all last week and on Friday we woke up to a lovely bright, frosty morning.  Form Five were delighted as after assembly we went out into the garden to experience the frost – all just another part of the preparation for our Christmas play, ‘The Snow Queen.’

The week was dominated by our preparations. Besides practicing on the stage, we have been raiding the garden shed to find props and costumes, preparing programmes and even getting more in tune with our characters during creative writing class! All of this while preparing our art displays for Christmas and still trying to keep up with our normal classwork –especially maths, where we have finally agreed that we are now comfortable handling fractions.

So it was a very, very busy week and we have worked extremely hard.

We all agree that it has been great fun as well.
