Here are some pictures from our recent Burns Supper on Friday 24th January. The P6/7 Children prepared all the food with the help of their teachers, Mr Rutherford, Miss Mair and the Fusion team (Emily Souness, Kim Douglas and Ann Scotland). Apart from preparing the food the children, helped to decorate the venue (the school hall) and created a leaflet listing the programme for the event, background on Robert Burns and a photograph of the class as part of a four week preparation process (details below the slideshow).
It took four weeks of planning running up to the event itself.
Week 1 Researching Robert Burns, creating promotions and invitations, divide the class into groups and decide on roles e.g. chefs, researchers, designers and entertainers.
Week 2 Looked into sourcing ingredients, costings for the meal, invitations to parents, start creating decorations and practise the entertainment.
Week 3 Practiced cooking and did taste tests, decorations, entertainment practice and then start to look into the format of the day, allocating roles to certain pupils.
Week 4 Dress rehearsal for the big day, final entertainment practice, decorate the hall and prepare the food (Thursday 23rd Jan) ready for Friday. Finally a powerpoint was created of the photos showing the hardwork and preparation for the event.
