P7H Flu Letters, House Captain Interviews, Field Shoes

Good Afternoon,

I just wanted to post a little reminder of a few things that are going on in class.

All flu letters that are still to be returned should be returned tomorrow morning.

Thank you to those who have returned their House Captain Application forms. If you have been off for this, don’t worry as we can sort out an opportunity to interview you when you return to school.

As the weather has changed quickly over the past week, please bring in shoes appropriate for outdoor learning. If you bring these with you in a bag, they can be left on your peg in the cloakroom.

We have had a great start to Primary Seven and I look forward to the term ahead. You are adapting well to all of changes which are happening and still having lots of fun!

Primary Seven Japan Personal Project

Due Tuesday 29th September 


Learning Outcome

I can create a detailed presentation on an area of Japan that is of interest to me. I can use my research to discuss the diversity of particular cultures, values and customs in our society.  SOC 2-16c

Skill for Learning

Application & Knowledge: I can apply my knowledge of Japan to plan and produce an interesting and creative presentation.

Skill for Work

Organisation: I can organise my time and resources independently to ensure my project is completed in the allocated time.

Background

In class, we will be learning about a variety of aspects relating to Japan. Now it is your turn to become independent international researchers! You are being asked to find out about an area of Japan that is of particular interest to you and share your findings with your peers.

Task

What you need to know: You are free to complete your personal project in any way you wish. You can pick something very specific (Japanese fashion, technology, food ) or something a bit more general (Japanese culture). If you wish, you may even choose an area we have not covered in class.

What you need to do: You can present your project in any way you choose. This might be in written form, a PowerPoint presentation, a booklet, a video or even a model. In other words, you have the choice to choose the way you feel will best help you to demonstrate your knowledge of your chosen topic. This project is all homework based therefore you need to think about the resources you will have access to: books, library, internet, personal accounts etc. Please ask for any paper, IT time or anything else you might need from school.

What you need to think about: You can use whatever you need to describe your personal project: photographs, videos, props etc. Try to think about why you picked this area for your project. What was it that interested you about it? Remember some people in class may know nothing about the area you have chosen to discuss, so you must explain it in detail.

How to get started: Get all of your ideas down on a mind map and then decide which ones are the most relevant and will best engage your audience.

Product Criteria

  • You are free to present your researched topic in any way you choose. However, try to think outside of the box a little. In other words, be creative!
  • You have 5 weeks to pull your project together so use your time wisely. You should be prepared to bring your completed project to school on  Tuesday 29th September.
  • This is an independent research project. It is your responsibility to organise your time effectively and ensure you are putting in enough effort.
  •  Everyone will approach this task in different ways so don’t worry if your friends are doing  something different from you. Have faith in your project and what you have to say and it will all     work out. This is your chance to show just how well you can take responsibility for your own  learning.

P7H P.E Days

Good Evening,

I hope you have all had a well-earned rest over the weekend after your first few days in Primary Seven.
Our P.E days are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please come dressed in appropriate footwear and clothing. We will be going between the middle playground, upper playground, pitch and field.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow to start your first full week in Primary Seven.

Miss Hamilton ☺️

Lasting Legacy Of Class of 2020 🏆💫

It’s hard to believe we are at the end of the school year and that it’s time for our Primary Seven classes to head off on their next adventure to High School in August. ✏️

It has been a challenging few months for everyone and the abundant resilience and positive work ethic that you have shown has made us extremely proud teachers😃. In light of the past few months, we wanted to get you a very special gift this year to ensure your lasting legacy in Bishopton Primary School.

As you know, we give out many trophies and awards at the end of Primary Seven. We have purchased a big trophy to add to these awards in your honour. This trophy will represent resilience across Primary Seven and will be presented to one child at the end of their time in Bishopton for years to come. In doing this, we will remember and speak about you fondly in the years ahead to inspire future generations to persevere in challenging times. 🏆🌟

You have been a wonderful year group and we will miss you all! Please come back and visit in August and let us know how much you’re enjoying High School.

Have a great summer and here’s to the class of 2020!👏🏻🌈💫

Ties and Trophies

Your trophies and ties are now ready to be collected from Bishopton Primary.

This will be between 9.30-10.30am tomorrow morning – 26th June.

We will have them ready and waiting to be uplifted at Bishopton Primary at the middle corridor doors where you line up every day.

Please adhere to social distancing and try to clear the playground  as quickly as you can. The weather is not looking too promising so we will try to hand them out as quickly as possible.

If you are not able to make it, please let us know.
