P7: Reminders and Sports Day

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. Please see below for a few reminders for this week.
Homework:
Spelling and maths will be available on Teams as usual. We continue with Accelerated Reader.
Uniform: As discussed in class last week, please remember to come in casual uniform (including trainers/running shoes) all of next week. This will allow us to complete all activities associated with the Iris Anderson award.
Sports Day:
This year, sports day will be a little bit different but with the same house pride as always. Due to current regulations, we can only race in our classes and this will be done in our PE slots. No spectators are allowed.

Our wonderful P7 house captains will be recording our class races. We will then put it all together so we can watch the races unfold and find out who has won the coveted sports day trophy. This will be shared with parents and family.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the weather,  please bring your house colours to school (in your school bag) every possible race day next week (Tuesday-Friday). Please do not worry if you do not have house colours, you will still race for your team.  This will allow us to rearrange any races if the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Below is a reminder of our house colours. There is absolutely no need to buy anything new.

Falcons – Blue
Ospreys – Red
Eagles – Yellow
Hawks – Green

Good luck to all of the houses!

See you all tomorrow, P7!

P7 Activities Week

Happy Sunday everyone!

I hope you are having a great weekend and enjoying the May sunshine. Let’s hope this kind of weather continues for us during Activities Week.

We spoke about our plans on Friday in class, but I thought I would put a rough rundown of the week below so that you have a reminder of what to bring on each day.

Different activities are planned for each day and you will be told the daily schedule each morning in class after register and lunches are taken. Please remember that all COVID procedures are still in place, and we will be returning to class before each break and lunch to wash hands.

Breaktimes and lunchtimes will be the same as normal (excluding Thursday), so lunch arrangements are the same as always – packed lunch, school meal, or home lunch. If you are going home for lunch, please ensure that a parent or guardian rings the office to let us know.

Activities Week will be a uniform free week. I advise you to wear older clothes/shoes or clothes/shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty as we will be spending most of the week outdoors. Please remember to come prepared for all types of weather and bring a waterproof jacket in case of rain. Water bottles can also be brought to school.

There will be no homework this week.

Schedule/Reminders:

Each day (excluding Thursday), we will be participating in 3 activities. One on the field, one on the pitch and one in the classroom. Activities will be a mixture of team challenges, physical challenges, games, arts and crafts, nature-based learning and STEM tasks.

Monday: Nothing additional required

Tuesday: Nothing additional required

Wednesday: Please bring your pencil case (pens, colouring pens/pencils), although you will have access to your crayons etc in class. Please bring a plastic bag.

Thursday: We will visit Finlaystone on Thursday. The cost of this is £4.50 and can be paid through Parent Pay. Please bring a packed lunch in a plastic or paper bag. Remember to bring a face covering to wear on the bus to and from Finlaystone. We will leave school at 9am and should return around 2.30pm. We will remain in class until the 3.15pm release time.

Friday: Lunchtime is as normal (packed lunch/school meal/home lunch). We will be celebrating the end of our week with a pizza and movie afternoon. We will provide pizza and juice. You may bring one additional snack to enjoy as we watch the movie. No fizzy juice please. All dietary requirements should already be noted on your EV5 form.

I am really looking forward to spending time with you all and let’s look forward to a fun filled week!

See you all tomorrow!

Miss Cauley and P7 teachers.

Big Pedal 2021

Sustrans Big Pedal - Sustrans.org.ukThis year, as always, the school will be taking part in the Big Pedal, the Sustrans national competition to get everyone moving – cycling, scooting and walking.

Below you will find a video and information sheet.

This year will be a little bit different as we are asking children to bring their bike or scooter on alternate days.  Please see the timetable below for your child’s days.

Date Classes
Mon 19th April P2,P5,P6,P7
Tues 20th April P1,P3 and P4
Wed 21st April P2,P5,P6,P7
Thurs 22nd April P1,P3 and P4
Fri 23rd April P2,P5,P6,P7
Mon 26th April P1,P3 and P4
Tues 27th April P2,P5,P6,P7
Wed 28th April P1,P3 and P4
Thur 29th April P2,P5,P6,P7
Fri 30th April P1,P3 and P4

There are only a few simple rules –

all children must wear a helmet on a bike

bikes and scooters should be wheeled through the playground on the way in and out of school and on the ashy path.

Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join in the challenge.

Every child will get the chance to cycle or scoot with their friends in the playground during the day.

We would ask that you check over bikes and scooters to make sure they are safe to use, especially if they haven’t been used for a while.

Please don’t worry if your child is unable to bring their bike or scooter on any of their days.  Walking counts too!

Big pedal parent info

We are all looking forward to the Big Pedal.  It should be lots of fun.

Bike Ability 2021

We are looking to offer the Bike Ability Level 2 Cycling award next term to the Primary 7 pupils. This will begin with sessions delivered in an off-road, traffic-free setting, designed to develop basic bike control skills. The core of the programme will then focus on making short journeys on quieter roads, using appropriate signalling and observation.

We are looking to offer this as an after-school club throughout the weeks of the 10th May and 17th May 2021. This will be led by our trained members of staff. Once we know the numbers interested, we will confirm dates. The pupils will be required to attend five sessions lasting one hour from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.

This programme will be dependent on national guidance and staffing levels at the time.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly. A letter has been sent home today with further information. Please return the slip by Wednesday 31st March to confirm your interest.

Kind Regards,
Mr McAvoy

P7 Home Learning Overview

Happy New Year!

We hope you had a lovely holiday with plenty of relaxation and enjoyed time with your loved ones over the festive period.

Although we won’t be seeing your lovely, smiling faces as soon as we thought, we can keep in contact online as we’ll be starting our Primary 7 Home Learning programme tomorrow. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

Here is a little rundown of how we would like our home learning to go:

  • There will be two main posts every day:
  • We will have a Daily Task post where you will find an overview of the tasks for that day (these can be found in the assignments tab). Tasks that have direct teaching will be marked as such. Please like or comment on the Daily Task post before you begin any work. This will allow us to keep a register.
  • We will have a Pupil of the Day post where you can leave a compliment for your friend.
  • We will follow the structure of the school day as much as possible and there is a timetable below so you can see how the structure of our week will look. Our school break times in P7 are 10.30am – 10.45am, 12.45pm – 1.30pm, and 2pm – 2.15pm. Please make sure you take breaks during the day (whenever suits you and your family – everyone’s day looks different) – get outside and enjoy the fresh air, outdoor play, or just some personal chill time away from the screen.
  • We will have a Team meeting every Monday and Thursday at 10am (excluding Monday 11th January). If you can, please join the meeting to check in and share your news. It will be so nice to hear everyone’s voices and hear what you have been up to. We will also try to play some games. If you can’t join us, please don’t worry.
  • Assignments– Please upload your work to the assignments so we can give you feedback directly. If you have any corrections or you would like to make improvements to your work, you can always make changes then upload again. Please ensure you have attached work before clicking upload. We will set the closing date for assignments for one month and you can still hand them in after this date.  In order to keep your assignments space tidy and avoid a build-up of tasks, we will mark work as ‘completed’ after one week. If you still wish to complete this task and hand it in, you will find it in the completed section of the assignments tab.
  • Non-assignment work– There will be other tasks available to you that will not be listed as an assignment – for example, we will offer Daily Doodle prompts, as well as a selection of puzzles, STEM and other practical activities. If you wish to share your achievements with these, reply to the Daily Task post with a photo of your work by hitting the paperclip icon.
  • Please keep the General Channel tidy and only reply to the posts. Please only chat with your friends and use emojis and GIFs in the Chill-Out Zone. Please keep to the digital etiquette rules we have previously discussed in class. Do not share your gamer username on Teams.
  • We know that every home has different arrangements about when and how you do work, so please do not worry if you can’t get everything or anything done. You can only do what you can and please email us if you have any questions or worries. We are here to support you and are very proud of you.

We are looking forward to working with you all on Teams and will be available to answer your questions and provide support throughout the school day. We know you will all try your best.

 

Kind regards,

P7 Class Teachers
