Mrs Robertson from Peebles High School has sent us this link so you can take a virtual tour of Peebles High School at home. You can also see who the teachers are and hear from some senior students who talk about their experiences at Peebles High School.
Hello Primary 7 and welcome back. The current home learning Sway is available via the tab above. We hope you enjoy the activities we have planned for you and the opportunity to keep developing those digital skills!
As always, please do contact us if you have any questions or you’d like to share something you’ve been working on. We’d love to hear from you either by email or on our P7 Teams page.
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.
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!
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.
