P7S – German Alphabet

On Friday, we recapped on German greetings and the alphabet. We played a variety of games to practise the pronunciation of each letter and to help us remember the sound. Please use the links below to practise at home.

Babel Nation – Alphabet

Watch the video below to hear you singing the German alphabet to the tune of Frere Jacques, as a round. I was very impressed so see if you can sing it to someone at home to impress them too. Well done! Miss McDowall

P7 Visit from The Music Man!

We were very lucky to have a visit from Mr Laird from Saturday Music Centre at Paisley Grammar. He played various instruments including the saxophone, flute, clarinet, tuba and baritone. We had to guess whether they were going to make a high or low sound and then what tune he played.

There is a ‘Come and Try’ Day on Saturday 10th September, where P7 pupils can hear and then try out a number of musical instruments. If they show an aptitude for a particular instrument, they may then be offered a course of lessons funded by the Creative Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative scheme. The lessons are free of charge for the first year of tuition. Letters available on request.

Have a look at Mr Laird playing the instruments.

P7M – Meet the Japanese Families

On Monday we started our Japan topic. We had to choose a traditional Japanese family name and explain why we chose it. Most Japanese family names (like ours) have a meaning .e.g. AKIYAMA means ‘autumn mountain’. The Scottish surname Campbell means ‘crooked-mouthed’.

We had to draw ourselves wearing traditional Japanese clothing, write our own skills and qualities, record what we already know about Japan and what we wanted to learn.
