Ellon Academy recently held an interdisciplinary learning project for S2 with a Scottish flavour.
All pupils looked at Scottish-based lessons throughout the week with a range of themes from architecture and design to the independence referendum, traditions and superstitions, music, innovations, entrepreneurs and tourism.
The best work was displayed around the school and all pupils took part in a ‘Celebrating Scotland Showcase’.
This involved them going to four sessions at the academy including a mini Highland Games, food tasting, talks from Scottish sportspeople, watching a performance of a locally-inspired soap opera, a storytelling relay and a children’s rights activity facilitated the Global Learning Programme Scotland.
They were also treated to a display of bagpipe music by S2 pupil William Paterson, a member of Fraserburgh Pipe Band, and Scottish swimming gold medallist Kirsty Simpson also took part in the showcase.
