When we arrived in New Lanark, we watched a film about time travelling.The time travelling girl had a grandmother who said she was related to Annie MacLeod who lived in Victorian times and worked at the mill in New Lanark. After the film, we went to a Victorian Classroom. I loved it there as it was much more fun than I expected. We did dancing, studied a crocodile (not alive) and did Maths. At the end of the dancing the boys had to bow to the girls who had to curtsy to the boys.
Everyone had to wear a pinafore in the school so our clothes didn’t get dirty.
I like Art and I am good at it. We have been painting blocks, lines, houses, balloons, birds, fishes, trees and butterflies. We have made purple from blue and red; orange using red and yellow and green using yellow and blue.
I looked for things which use energy in the classroom. I found out that if I turned the wheel on a toy it makes a noise and at the very end a cow and a pig pop out. The toy is called a Jack in the Box and it needs moving energy to work.
I also liked to find out that food is energy.
Me and Catriona made a game. We loved it. My game was a guessing game. We made lots of
money for Nepal.
I have made a lovely, lovely pumpkin and we are going to roast it. Christmas dinner is good because you can invite lots of people.
