Primary 7H learned about nets of 3D shapes today and started creating a model of Bishopton with key buildings. 🏘

As our topic is Japan 🇯🇵 , we looked at Japanese numbers and everyone created their own poster.

Finally we have been learning about probability so the children enjoyed looking at this in the context of the game Rock, Paper,  Scissors. 👊🏻🤚🏻🖖🏻🎲

Today, Primary 7H made Maths booklets for their buddies. ☺️ They had to come up with handy things that would assist their Primary 1 buddies in doing their Maths work. The aim was to make them bright and colourful so that they would be appealing to the younger children.

They are looking forward to hopefully meeting their buddies in the near future even if it is virtually at first 😃.

Here are some pictures of the booklets. 📸

We started out Maths Week by taking part in the Sumdog contest. Remember you can take part at home as well 💫👍🏻.

Later in the day, everyone created a stain class window using their knowledge of angles. Our chilli challenge allowed everyone to challenge themselves when choosing which angles to draw in their window 📐🖼.

Our final activity was our Maths ‘Daily 10’ where the children complete times challenges from various areas of Numeracy. It’s great to see everyone challenging themselves and trying to beat their own scores from round to round 👏🏼.

Here are some pictures from today 🌟📸.

Good Afternoon,

I hope you have all had a lovely restful weekend 😃.

Thank you to those who have sent over their personal projects. This has allowed me to download them and have them ready for you to present this week. Remember all projects should be in for tomorrow as we will be starting to present. If you are not bringing a presentation in on paper or USB, please email your PowerPoints to me tonight or tomorrow before school. If you could attach the presentation to the email, this makes it easy for me to download. Remember you should have cue cards to assist you in giving eye contact to your audience.

I’m looking forward to hearing all about your research into your area of interest 🇯🇵.

See you all tomorrow morning when we will be starting a fun Maths Week 📐📊🎲.
