As part of ‘Walk to School Week’ we were given the choice to wear something funky on our feet today for ‘Shoesday Tuesday’. Without discussing it, our teachers came in co-ordinating footwear – what a team!
Here we are in some of our favourite or funkiest footwear:
It was lovely to welcome you all back after the October break. We have had a busy first week back with lots of new learning, a new class novel, an assembly, new guidance to keep ourselves safe, and a chance to catch up with our friends again.
Answer the questions below to review your learning experiences this week.
What three things did you enjoy doing the most?
What did you learn about yourself this week and what made you realise this?
P7B have been working together in problem solving to use their reading and maths skills. They read a description and tried to create a shape that fitted the description. We used our iPads to help with our drawings and learnt how to use the ruler function to measure and draw straight lines.
We found it was interesting that we all interpreted the instructions differently and there wasn’t just one way of creating the shape.
Here are a few of the descriptions – see if you can create the shape (it was much harder than we first thought).
A five-sided shape with one right angle and one pair of parallel sides.
A four-sided shape with two pairs of parallel sides, four equal sides and no right angles.
A six-sided shape with no right angles and one pair of parallel sides.
Can you believe it is October already? It has certainly felt a lot chillier today – please remember to wear layers from now on and always bring a coat!

This week we have been reflecting on our “Residential at Home” week In our Writing and creating thank you cards for All the adults who made it possible. We’ve been learning a little about decimals in Numeracy and have continued developing our spelling of the long /e/ sound. Grammar focused on Singular and Plural and we also write descriptions of the Main Character from our Novel Study ‘Wonder’.
In Science we explored friction, tension and weight distribution when we designed and made our own mini Zip wires.
How successful was your zip wire? What worked/did not work and why? How did you fix any issues found while testing?
