Remembrance Report

Dougal and Findlay fron L6A wrote a report about Remembrance Day Parade for RadioHigh. You can read what they wrote below:

On Friday 9th November 2007 The High School of Dundee held their Remembrance Day Parade. Halge sat and watched the parade from the classroom window. This is what he saw:The cadets marched on, followed by the pipes and drums and Halge loved the sight even altghough he was watching from a distance. The cadets were all lined up and the Sergent Major gave an order for the colours to be presented. The Pipe Band then played Highland Cathedral. A poppy reef was presented by Alice Burnet and Duncan Leese and the head boy and girl. There was a two minute to allow us all time to think about the many people who gave their lives in the first and second world wars. It is also a time to think about other wars being fought today. The minister said a prayor. The Sergent Major dismised all of the pipes and drums and the cadets. All of the other High School pupils quietly walked back to their classrooms.Lots of people wore a poppy as a mark of respect. In 1918 gun shots died down in Belgum France and Germany marking the end of the First World War. After four years of fighiting more than 20 million men and woman were dead. World War Two began on the ist September 1939 . World WarTwo was the most blood sheading war ever and a tough war for the United Kingdom.

Why All The Siniging And Dancing?

Two L6A boys interviewed Mrs Tonner to find out why she chose her latest assembly with an L4 class. To find out more read below:

So Mrs Tonner why choose Jack and the Beanstalk?
I choose Jack and the Beanstalk because Rauld Dahl wrote it and it had a very intresting story to it.I also choose it because it is a story that the whole school know.This is not just the standard Jack and the Beanstalk this is funnier and more exciting to watch with the addition of music.

How long did it take you to prepare for this play?
OH This play took ages to prepare for we had actually already done this play the year before but the fire alarm went off 3 times when we were performing to the school which spoilt the play.

Who is your favuorite character?
That would have to be the giant.

Do you use the same costumes for other plays?
So you found out ! I do use the same costumes for other plays such as Zoom and the Little Red Riding Hood assembly I did the week before.

Was it fun ?
It was great fun getting everyone to learn all of there lines, songs and parts but best of all was watching the audience reaction!

Reached The Two Thousand Mark!

No we are not talking about Mark and Ted as we know they have travelled over 9000 miles. Instead, we are talking about the amount of visitors to our blog. Since we placed the counter on the site less than 10 weeks ago we have had more than 2000 visitors. This is exciting as people from around the world are reading and listening to what we do. Do you know how many people visit the site roughly each day using the information above? The first correct answer wins a sticker. Mrs Tonner

Look What L2M Made In ICT.

Look what Mrs Mordente's class made in ICT with Mrs Tonner. First they recorded their poem using Mrs Tonner's recording equipment then they created pictures in Paint. Mrs Tonner put the pictures and voices together to make a Firework presentation which you can view at the L2 wikispace. We hope you enjoy watching and listening to L2M's work.

Voices Of The World - November

This month's task for our global project Voices Of The World was created by L2W. The task for all the different countries around the world was to sing and record Twinkle Twinkle in their own language using a backing track Mrs Tonner created. The children then created pictures in Paint to go with the song. Look at the finished results on L2W's wikispace. At the end of November the songs from all around the world are released by Mrs Tonner so we can hear all the different voices singing Twinkle Twinkle in their own language.
