Primary 7: W/K Beg 22nd November

Hello!

We hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed some well deserved relaxation.

Pupils have been working extremely hard in class and we’ve really enjoyed the events of the past few weeks.

Thanks to Mrs Davidson for organising our Scottish Book Week events, and to our P1 buddies for their time. We had a brilliant afternoon relaxing and reading with them. It was super fun to share our favourite bedtime stories and chill in our pjs.

It was a really busy week in school and we really enjoyed our Children in Need events too! We had great fun dressing up in our finest and sparkles and had a lovely time being mindful with some Pudsey colouring amongst other things. Thanks to Miss Altman for organising, we had a fab week.

Please see below for this week’s homework and news:

Homework:

Spelling: Will be live on teams on Monday

Maths: A Sumdog challenge has been set for each class

News:

House Art Day: This is on the 29th November. House colours should be worn. It’s going to be such a fun day! We are still looking for any donations of cardboard boxes, cds or dvds or any old Christmas decorations. These can be brought into class any day next week.

Tubs: Please bring a tub/container to school with you on Friday. This need must have a fitting lid. 

Thanks for your continued support and have a lovely week ahead,

Primary 7 teachers

P7 – Fertiliser Lesson

Good morning P7!

Today we will be investigating what fertiliser is and how it is used. Here is our learning outcome:

I have collaborated in the
design of an investigation
into the effects of fertilisers
on the growth of plants. I can
express an informed view of
the risks and benefits of their
use.
SCN 2-03a

To show you have been successful, you should play an equal part in completing and presenting an investigation on fertilisers to the class (please see you task sheet).

I have popped some websites below that will help you with your investigations. Please use only these sites. If links are not working, you can copy and paste the address in your browser. Remember, information on the sites might help you answer more than one question.

Happy investigating – we can’t wait to hear your presentations!

Hello Primary 7

Hope you have had a good weekend, just a few reminders for the week.

Homework will be posted on teams tomorrow.

This week is Scottish Book Week. Remember you can wear your pyjamas on Tuesday. If any adults would like to video call and read a story to the class please let us know.

On Friday we have our Children in Need day. This year it is a Strictly theme so get your glittery clothes out for Friday. Also bring a tub for some cooking in the afternoon.

We have Park Mains this week so remember your kit.

We look forward to a busy week ahead.

Primary 7 – House Art Day

 

Hello everyone!

It’s almost time for one of the most festive celebrations in our school calendar – House Art Day!

This year, House Art Day will be on Monday 29th November and we need your help!

To highlight the importance of our climate and environment, pupils at Bishopton Primary will create seasonal displays entirely made of sustainable materials. We will base these on the Sustainable Development Goals (https://www.globalgoals.org/) and hope that we can continue to emphasise how we can make a massive difference to our planet by thinking global yet acting local!

Making these displays will be loads of fun, but to make them the best we can we really need the following things, so please – save them for us if you’ll be using them at home! You can either bring things in as and when, are collect things up and bring in a large batch whenever suits you.

*Cardboard boxes (cereal/muesli/porridge boxes are ideal)

*Unwanted Christmas tree decorations – plain baubles would be perfect, but we’ll take anything you have!

*Unwanted CDs/DVDs – we don’t even need the cases, just the disc would be fab

*Any unwanted scraps of material

*Any unwanted wool

Any donations should be handed in to your child’s class teacher.

Thank you so much for your support; we’re really looking forward to the day ahead! Please check back in later in the month for more information about the day.

P7C – COP26 Youth and Public Empowerment Day

#COP26

#COP26GLASGOW

Today is Youth and Public Empowerment Day at COP26. After watching Newsround as part of topical science and having a detailed discussion in class, P7C decided that they wanted to get involved. They created posters, banners and signs that encouraged Global Leaders to take their opinions on board.  It was amazing to see the passion, dedication and enthusiasm that young people had for changing our world. They expressed their rights and opinions with respect and enjoyed the opportunity to be creative.
