P7 Review of the week

P7 have had another busy week. We have been settling back into our routines and are getting used to being around each other again and improving our concentration levels. This week we have:

  • Researched, planned and written Explanation texts about the Life Cycle of Salmon
  • Learned about spelling words containing the patterns j, g, ge and dge
  • Studied some poetry in our task map reading lessons
  • Created questions about a text
  • Learned essential financial knowledge about debit & credit cards, budgeting, discounts, profit & loss etc.
  • Investigated the area of right angled triangles and composite shapes
  • Worked in groups to design and plan a zoo, thinking about area and perimeter
  • Revised some essential First Aid skills as part of our ‘Keeping myself safe’ sessions
  • Created some fabulous artwork for next week 😉
  • Enjoyed playing some of the playground games we have learned with Mrs Fletcher during our break times.
  • Received a Head Teacher’s Award and a comment in our jotter from Mrs Wilson

Time to reflect:

  1. What do you most appreciate about being back at school?
  2. What is your goal for the rest of the term? (Only a week to go remember!)
  3. What have you most enjoyed this week?

Take a Moment Thistles

This week P7 took some time to relax and focus on sketching skills.

Skipper tells us that sometimes we need to take a moment to help us cope with our emotions. Drawing and sketching is a great way to relax and calm ourselves down.

P7 focused on their sketching skills by following Mrs Little’s wonderful Sketches School tutorial to create these beautiful thistle pictures on their iPads.

Reflections on 2020

2020 has been a year like no other. We have all had experiences that have challenged us but also had positive opportunities that would not have occurred otherwise. Think about these questions and reflect on the year of 2020.

  1. What challenged you this year – be specific!

  2. What positives came out of this year for you?

  3. What did you learn from this year?

  4. What is your hope for 2021?

Chocolate Data Challenge

There has been lots of excitement in class since we found out we were taking on the Chocolate Data Challenge.

First we had to collect the data on how many varieties of chocolates there were in our tub and then show the results in a table.

Next we surveyed the class to find out which chocolate each person would choose as their favourite. This was not easy as we all had different brands!

We then made a comparison graph to display the data we had collected. We compared the amount of each type in our box with the ones that people liked best.

After that, we analysed our data to answer questions from Mrs Brown. We shared our findings with the class. We found that the chocolate which occurs most in the box is usually the heaviest and not the favourite. Lots of us had different favourites though so this could vary.

Our final task was probably the hardest!! We had to divide the chocolates equally between our group so we all went home with the same amount but had to decide on how we could each get the chocolates we preferred. It was not as simple as just dividing up the chocolates and we came up with lots of different ways to do this so it was fair and kind.  We definitely won’t be eating them all at once!

Christmas Lunch and other ‘Celebrations’!

Today we enjoyed a very special Christmas lunch where we got to eat together in our class Bubble.

After lunch, Mrs L set us a Chocolate Data Challenge! Using tubs of Celebrations (and carefully sanitised hands!) we investigated whether the most popular types of chocolate were represented by the quantity of each type of chocolate in a  typical tub .  We also learned some new skills on our iPads for interpreting and displaying the data by creating tables, inputting data and creating charts and graphs.
