Next week (Week beginning Tuesday 26th September 2017), we will have PE on Tuesday afternoon and our regular slots on Wednesday.

This is to incorporate our visitors and will relate to our Japan Topic.

It will be lots of fun!

Maths Week Scotland – Thank You and Feedback

Wow, what an amazing week we have had! Every pupil has experienced a wide range of exciting and challenging activities to highlight the importance and relevance of maths and numeracy. We have thought about how, where and why we use maths in our everyday lives and had fun taking part in our Maths Day on Tuesday.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the local Co-op and showed a great enthusiasm for their homework tasks. Thank you to those of you who sent in and/or tweeted photos of the children using maths and numeracy at home. Pupils were playing Sumdog, interviewing parents, pointing out clocks, weighing and baking!

We think that the first ever Maths Week Scotland has been a huge success and would like to hear your feedback. Please leave a comment below or write a note to tell us what you think about how we did. Tell us what you and your children enjoyed and what we could do better next year.

When we look at the key messages of Maths Week Scotland, I think we definitely ticked all of the boxes:

  • Maths skills, understanding and confidence are important for everyone.
  • Everyone can ‘do’ maths; it’s a way of learning and thinking that we all use and can develop.
  • Maths ‘is everywhere’ and relevant to day-to-day life and work – decision making, problem solving, budgeting, planning, assessing probability and risk, and many more.
  • Being confident about and enjoying maths is about commitment and learning. It’s not ‘a gift’; it’s something we can all acquire if we want to.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing your feedback.

Kind regards,

Miss McDowall

Design Competition – BAE Systems

BAE Systems are running an exciting design competition open to everyone at Bishopton Primary School to create a sign around the theme of safe driving and sticking to the speed limit when driving through the village.

The winning designs will be chosen by a panel of judges and turned into road signs that will displayed around Dargavel Village. The pupils who created the winning designs will also get a small prize and a framed version of their design.

All entries must be handed in by Tuesday 26th September (please ensure child’s full name and class is written on the back).

We are sure you will have lots of excellent ideas and can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Maths Week Scotland

Today you learned about the famous Italian Leonardo Fibonacci who recognised the Fibonacci sequence. This sequence is special as we discussed due to its ability to blueprint nature through the Fibonaccci spiral. We made our own spirals today and tried to count the the sequence as far as we could! Can you remember the pattern? Remember the first three numbers are 0, 1 and 1!

P7H News

Good Evening,

I hope you all enjoyed our Maths Day events, and are enjoying your active Maths homework this week.
We have planned to visit the Co-op tomorrow. You will be able to make a purchase on this visit of up to £1. Please make sure you bring a jacket with you for this visit. Unfortunately a number of excursion permissiom forms have not been returned. Within packs of letters which have been returned, two packs also did not have the excursion form completed. I will return these forms tomorrow. Please try to return your form tomorrow morning if you haven’t already, as you will be unable to join us on our visit without permission. Thank you to our parent helpers who will be accompanying us to the Co-op. We will be leaving just after lunch.
We will be having Read and Munch on Friday afternoon. You may bring a healthy snack to eat when you are reading.
Can I also remind everyone who has chosen the football Masterclass tomorrow that they will require a change of clothes to take part.

Have a great week!
Miss Hamilton

Maths is Everywhere!

Today we celebrated Maths Week Scotland by having a full day of fun and challenging maths and numeracy activities. We had five activities throughout the day with different teachers and ended with a Maths Relay with all of the P4-7 pupils. Everyone put in a great effort and tried there best.

One of the activities was looking at the importance and relevance of maths and numeracy in our everyday lives. We brainstormed ideas about where and when we use maths and then used these to draw them on a hexagon. Why a hexagon, you ask? Well, so that we could display all of our ideas together by tessellating them! I was really impressed with your knowledge of how maths is used in your lives. I think your drawings will show the whole school how and why maths is everywhere!
