Students in Primary 7 have a lot to share with you this week!
In Art we produced some fantastic clown pictures based on the work of French artist Bernard Buffet.
In Maths we are using our knowledge of Scale to produce an accurate map of our Field of Dreams. We were also able to showcase our Mathematical talents to an important visitor to the school who was very impressed.
In Literacy we are using our H.O.T.S. skills to develop a deep understanding of our novel, ‘The Road to Freedom’. This book tells the story of an underground network which helped runaway slaves from the southern states of America to journey to the north where they would be free. We are also using a variety of strategies to enhance our Spelling, using our given Spelling words to create things like comic strips or newspaper stories.
The boys continue to enjoy their Swimming whilst everyone is enjoying Gymnastics with Mrs Boyle.
We also planted a variety of crops this week – potatoes, onions, carrots, leeks, lettuce, peppers and wheat. Hopefully we will be able to grow a healthy salad meal with enough wheat to make a loaf!
Certainly a lot going on in school – and now most of us looking forward to a fabulous week in Glencoe! Fingers crossed for decent weather…
