Week beginning: Monday 30th November 2020

Hello everyone!

I hope you have had a good weekend and are ready for the challenges of the new week.

Today is St Andrew’s Day. It is celebrated in Scotland on 30 November, in honour of St Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. St. Andrew was one of Christ’s twelve apostles. Some of his bones are said to have been brought to what is now St. Andrews in Fife during the 4th century. Since medieval times the X-shaped saltire cross upon which St. Andrew was supposedly crucified has been the Scottish national symbol.

  • As a homework challenge, write a short paragraph with some other information about St Andrew and why he is celebrated in Scotland.

Remember to select a task from your ‘Spelling Menu’ for each night (Monday – Thursday, 4 spelling tasks in total!).

Remember to use appropriate punctuation!

Hello P7!

This week marks the birthday of a Disney icon – Mickey Mouse.   .         

His appearance has changed greatly from Walt Disney’s first drawings.  As homework this week, do some research to find out the exact date of his birthday and his age then make a comic strip of Mickey’s’ life.

Week beginning: 9th November

World War I lasted from 1914-1918.  The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice, on 11th November 1918, to signal the end of World War One.  Since World War I ended, every year on 11th  November we remember the people in the armed forces who died in battle. This is called Remembrance Day. Yesterday was Remembrance Sunday.

What other information can you find out about The Armistice?

Term 2

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our very own P7 blogs.  It’s getting darker later in the mornings and earlier in the evenings which means we’re moving into Autumn.

HOMEWORK CHALLENGE: It is also Black History Month.  Here are a few questions you should think about, research and discuss with parents/carers as homework.  Bring your findings into class to share with your peers.
