Primary 7B Highlights of the Week

This week we have been continuing with our descriptive writing, revising place value and addition and some of us attended an online meeting about Dalguise.

For PE we have been focusing on hockey this term and enjoyed a few games in the MUGA.

We have been learning about forces and were inspired by P7A’s zip lines so thought we would have a go ourselves. After the challenge , we discussed what the children found most difficult. Some said sharing the resources, others said adapting their designs and plans if they didn’t work. We saw some great team work and innovative ideas. Well done everyone!



We were excited to learn that we will be taking part in a global challenge at part of COP26 and have been partnered up with a school in Nepal. The children had to take part in a number of activities to help introduce ourselves to the pupils in Nepal. One of our tasks was to take photos of different parts of the school. Have a look at some of the fantastic photos taken by the children below.
