Primary 7 – Maths Week Scotland

As part of maths week this month the children will be visiting the local Co-op in Bishopton.

We are looking for 1 adult volunteer, per class, to walk with us to the Co – op and back on Friday 1st October.

The children are invited to bring no more than £1 to spend. We will have a small challenge to complete in the store.

P7C time slot – 9:45am – 10:20am.

P7CK time slot – 10:50am  – 11:40am.

If you are available to help us on that morning please pop a note in your child’s bag and we will get back to you with more details.  If we have more than 1 volunteer we will do a ballot to choose.

Thank you in advance.

Comparing Lives in Japan and Scotland

Learning Outcome:

By comparing the lifestyle and culture of citizens in Japan with those of Scotland, I can discuss the similarities and differences. SOC 2-19a

Skill for LearningAnalysis – I can compare and contrast lifestyles in Japan with Scotland by using my own personal experience and research.

Please use the weblinks below as well as the information provided to find out as much as you can about life for children and adults in Japan. You will then use this information to compare it to your own life and that of the adults you know. You should take notes (key words and phrases) about the daily routine of Japanese children and adults. While you are researching, you should be thinking about your life and the live of your family and others that you know. Think about:

  • child’s daily routine (what time do they get up? go to school? go to bed?)
  • what is school life like for a Japanese child?
  • what do children/adults/families do in their spare time?
  • what age do children start school and move onto secondary school?
  • what are men and women’s role in the family?
  • how often do they spend time as a family (including their grandparents)?
  • what are typical daily meals?
  • What specific things do Japanese people have as part of their family?
  • other things that you are interested in that could be different in Japan than in Scotland

Websites to Use:

A Kid’s Life: Japan

https://web-japan.org/kidsweb/explore/housing/  –  housing

https://web-japan.org/kidsweb/meet/  –  the interests of children

You will also be given some paper notes.

We look forward to seeing your Venn diagrams!
