Primary Seven have been very busy during Book Week! Following on from their outdoor learning, working towards their John Muir award, the class decided to choose ‘Light on Dumyat’ by Rennie McOwan as their class focus during Book Week. They enjoyed reading and discussing the many adventures of Gavin and Clan Stewart, especially as the book features a number of local spots that the children have visited themselves. We also spent some time researching the author, Rennie McOwan – creating fact files on his fascinating life and career. As he is a locally based author, we were able to contact him directly by email and we received a wonderful reply, full of interesting advice and inspiration. We hope that he will be able to visit us at Kippen in the near future. We also had great fun designing and creating our very own interactive book T-shirts. Each Primary 7 selected a favourite book and designed their own ‘interactive’ T-shirt with extra information concealed inside pockets and flaps. They are looking forward to sharing these with the other children of the School when we return in the New Year.
