VE Day party at Gullane

This afternoon I was lucky enough to be invited to the VE day party that the P7 class at Gullane had organised (well to be honest I kind of cadged an invitation!). The pupils were challenged by Kathy McGrane to organise the food, games, decorations and clothing for the party. This involved a fair bit of numeracy work, hence my interest.

It was a delightful afternoon! The centrepiece of the afternoon's activities was this cake:

The pupils found a recipe, costed the ingredients, bought the ingredients then baked the cake.

I had fascinating chats with Kathy, Mary Howie and others about ACfE, Critical Skills and the transfer from Primary to Secondary.  What happens to the confident, independent learners filling our P7 classrooms?  Do we build upon these strengths at High School?
