P7 French Day

On Monday 21st March, Primary 7 were treated to a full day of fun French activities at Dalbeattie High School as part of our transition work.

We had 4 different activities to take part in. They were:

  1. Au Voleur! (Catch the thief) – an activity that took us all around the school searching for clues, written on the classroom doors in French, to help us find the missing objects.
  2. L’animal imaginaire (Imaginary animals) – we had to create an imaginary animal and label it using our knowledge of French vocabulary.
  3. Les jeux de société (Board Games) – we played a variety of games which tested our French vocabulary.
  4. Des chansons, et jeux actives (songs and active games) – we sang and practiced lots of songs in preparation for our performances to the parents in the afternoon.

We all had a brilliant day and thoroughly enjoyed the delicious French breakfast of hot chocolate and croissants at break time.

Thank you Mrs Kinghorn!!

P7 High School Transition

This term Primary 7 have been taking part in some transition sessions with Mr Bremner, Mr Donnelly and Miss Stewart from the High School.

Mr Bremner has been teaching probability in maths. We have had a great time sorting skittles and working out the probability of choosing certain colours – we even got to eat them at the end!!!

With Mr Donnelly, we have been learning about the importance of shading and adding tone to our art work.

In Drama, Miss Stewart played some really funny warm up games with us. We loved playing the stage direction game as well as some of the concentration games. In the last session we worked on freeze frames for different scenarios. It was really goof fun!!

P7 Rugby

For the last 4 weeks, both Primary 7 classes have been taking part in a block of tag rugby with John Muir.  During the first couple of weeks we took part in a variety of games which helped us to develop our rugby skills and understand the flow of the game better e.g. remembering to always pass backwards and using all the spaces on the pitch. Miss Clendinning was very impressed with how quickly we managed to build up our skills enough to play some short games.
