This week in P7S

This week in P7S we have had another busy week.

In Literacy we have been practising our spelling rules, extending our vocabulary by searching for new words in our reading books and making predictions. Everyone got set up on the new Chromebooks which we have in school and we then used our ICT skills to plan and write a diary entry based on our class novel ‘The Explorer’.

In Numeracy I enjoyed the Times Challenges working with timetables and durations of time – Abbey. We discussed how lengths of time can feel different depending on what we are doing and did a plank challenge and blinking task. Kaleb was the class blinking champion in the time.

We have also been working on our subtraction skills looking at using the column method as well as mental maths strategies.

In Art I liked painting the parrots – Lilli. We were practising our colour-mixing and how to use paint to create layers of colour. We would like to do more art in school.

In Modern Languages we created a menu in German and then held a language café on Friday where we practised our vocabulary skills speaking in German. We made our own menus and researched new words to include in them – Thomas.

In PE I liked when we were doing rugby with Miss Clarkson – Kayley. We were really good at working together as a team and demonstrating our rugby passing and scoring skills.

We love being Big Buddies and wish we had more Buddy time in school. This week we were helping our buddies make worry dolls using clothes pegs and wool.
