It has been a busy week in Primary 7.
We have been planning our Christmas Extravaganza for next week. We had to use our talking and listening skills to plan it out in groups (Cara). We went out to the playground and made a plan of it so that we know where to set up our stalls (Karis).
Our stalls are:
A Christmas Quiz, football, design a gingerbread house, scavenger hunt, fairy doors and a STEM stall.
Numeracy and Maths
We are designing infinity cubes for our extravaganza. We had to stick blocks together and made a hinge. Using our maths knowledge the toys were put together (Jaxon).
We were designing gingerbread men and used sewing skills to stick them together. We used cotton stuffing to put inside them (Sophie). Some of us found it hard especially pushing the needles through the fabric (Karis). Jaxon, Sophie, Darcy, Michael, Courtney, Cara and Kelsi all persevered to make theirs to take home. Two people made pillows by sewing them together as well (Darcy).
Today at assembly it was a whole school assembly and the WHOLE school were there. This included the nursery and the office staff too. It was good to get a chance to see everyone in their own rooms. During the assembly, Miss Belford spoke about Christmas traditions and how they change (Kaiden). We made paper chains that joined up all the classes in the school and everyone from nursery to us in P.7 contributed to them.
We only have another 2.5 days to go until the holidays!
We hope you have enjoyed reading our blog and are getting prepared for the big day. Enjoy your holidays when they come!
Miss Burdett and P.7B.
