Our Week in Room 21

March 15, 2024 by Miss Napier | 0 comments

This week has been the busiest week yet!

We’ve been completing different ‘British Science Week’ activities like studying velocity and taking part in experiments with balloons. Miss Napier also set us the challenges to make the longest length of unbroken paper we could using only a paper plate and a sheet of A3 paper. We had to communicate as teams before cutting the plates and paper, otherwise we’d lose the challenge! The longest piece of paper was 11 metres long!

In PE, we chose to play rounders. P6s vs P7s in the class. The P6s won both games!

We created our own clay sculptures after studying ‘The Thinker’ by Auguste Rodin. We took pictures of some poses, recreated them with the clay and then named them things like ‘The Daydreamer’ and ‘The Haaland.’

On Wednesday, some of the P7s went on an outing to Bothwell to meet Rt Rev Sally Foster-Fulton, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. There was around 200 other pupils from Lanarkshire schools there who listened to her speak and answer questions about her job.

We’ve been taking a look at discursive writing lately and this week we discussed Banksy and whether or not we think he is an artist or a vandal. As a class, we decided he was a little bit of both!

The P7s also took part in the Easter Code project on Thursday. The chaplaincy team came to take it and it was an interesting afternoon!
