Primary 7X have had a great start to the year and have settled in school life again. We have started the session with a great IDL topic, Restaurants, in which we have learned about the various styles of cuisine and types of restaurants available, looked at examples of business logo’s and discussed what makes a good menu. We had fun discussing the pros and cons of each type of restaurant and had some discussion about our favourite type of cuisine. In our Home Teams, we have started the exciting task of creating our own restaurants, with name, description, logo and are now in the process of designing our menu. We are taking care to choose dishes that suit our theme with starters, main courses and puddings which are both healthy and contain local produce, where possible. We are really looking forward to our trip to Frankie and Benny’s on 5th November – pizza making! We are certainly learning a lot about the complex nature of the restaurant business and beginning to realise what hard work it must be to run your own business.
We have started studying Beliefs in RME and, within our Home Teams; we are considering the beliefs of different faiths. The aim is for each team to create an information booklet which will compare the beliefs of all four faiths. This will take a few weeks to complete…so watch this space!
