Criffel P7 Challenge

The P7s undertook a challenge today: to climb Criffel.

Alongside Mr Archibald and volunteer extraordinaire Mr Fitzgerald, they started the walk just after 10am. Despite a few early showers the P7s made good time and were at the top before midday, just as the cloud broke, revealing a lovely view. As we were back down in time, we all went for an ice cream on the way home, well done all.

 

Summer Holiday

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

On Wednesday the P7s competed with fellow P7s from other schools in a curling tournament at Lockerbie Ice Rink.

Again, we were well represented and feedback will follow.

Thanks again to Mrs Park and Miss Johnstone for support and transport and to Mrs Robson for organising the trip.
