Children’s Wellbeing Survey for P5-7

The Council and its partners are currently working with Scottish Government through a programme called Realigning Children’s Services to help to improve local services for children in your area. All primary schools in the area have been invited to take part and we are inviting all children in P5 to P7 to complete a short online questionnaire during school time on their lives and wellbeing.

Please find a leaflet and letter in the P5-7’s bags which describe the survey and allow the choice of whether to take part or not.

Summer Holiday

 

Before:

After:

So long!

Another session complete and another cohort of P7s depart for secondary school. Good luck, you’ll all be missed.

Holiday homework suggestions:

  • Following on from our Tweety Pi Project have a go at more coding with Hour of Code.
  • Some members of the class wanted to practise division, here are some examples.
  • Do your own take on one of Vivaldi’s Four Season movements.
  • Keep a holiday diary
  • Keep a holiday dairy (one for the farmers)
  • Do a nature study
  • Book review
  • Something of your own idea

Many pupils chose books to read and I would encourage you all to read as much as you can over the summer. There is also a Summer Reading Challenge. You can get involved with this at your local library in Annan, I think.

For getting the lads reading, here is some advice. If you can find an author or genre that you like then that can be a good place to start. Here is a site that allows you to an advanced search which allows you to specify for example:

Which gives a list of 272 books which I have attached here ar bookfinder report.

Have a great break and I look forward to seeing you in August.

Best wishes,

Mr A

  • make a presentation
  • make a piece of art
  • write your own verse’s of Claire’s “Oh Aye!” song
  • practice Duolingo
  • do something about anything
  • or anything about something

Have a good holiday!

Orienteering at Mabie

Here are some accounts from P5-7 of our trip orienteering last term:

 

More Nonsense

More nonsense, from the other group last term

A Spot of Nonsense

This was made by one half of P5-7 and was one of the Nonsense poems learned off by heart last term. Hannah was accidentally missed from the credits!

Readathon Book Week

Miss Primrose has organised a Readathon for the next fortnight. Pupils will be reading as much as they can to raise money for a good cause, good luck.

Our P1, P2 and P3 pupils also received their book bags from the Scottish Book Trust in time for Scottish Book Week:

 

Children in Need

The children and staff have worn spots and onesies and raised over £50 for children in need. Hurrah!

P5-7 Holiday Homework

Today is the last day of a busy first term.

After discussing Holiday Homework, here are some ideas:

Reading: library books have been issued.

Tin Whistle: 2 new tunes have been issued to any class members interested.

Otherwise, we discussed doing something related to any places you visit, for example a diary or journal. Anything Nonsense related would be fine, for example writing and illustrating a story using characters from a Nonsense poem. As ever anyone else who wants to work on their own project should do so and all work can be presented on the first week back. Of course those who want to set themselves a challenge on iXL or anything else should go for that too.

Make sure you have a good break too and enjoy your holiday.

Mr Archibald
