PUpils at Kellands school have been busy recently with a number of different projects.

Primary 5 pupils constructed a fabulous array of Titanics as part of their homework project (see picture page 12), to mark the 100th anniversary of it’s fateful sinking. Each pupil was given six weeks to research the liner and it’s one and only voyage. The children were given tickets with names of passengers and researched their fate, while also exploring the class system and the people that might have occupied the first, second and third class cabins.

P3 pupils at Kellands have been studying the Romans. Pictured with Roman shields in full battle cry.

P3 and 4/5 made wonderfully intricate and individual Roman shields and Egyptian death masks respectively.

Eve and Miriam in P3 said: “We are doing a project on the Romans and had to make the shields for homework. They are very well designed and it took a lot of time to make them.”

Kayleigh, Sam and Kirsty from P4/5 said they made the death masks because it linked to their project on the Egyptians. They said: “The best thing about the masks is that they were all different. We have also made mummies and sarcophagi for them as well as Egyptian necklaces and Egyptian bread (luckily without stones or sand in it) and we made our own God and cats. We learned how to read and write in Hieroglyphs and we also decorated a map.”
