P7B’s Brilliant Week 27.5.22

Blog written collaboratively by the class.

This week we have been:

  • Writing a piece in response to an event from last week
  • We had a Prefect Break with P7A. We were outside and some of us played football, danced, found caterpillars, chatted and walked.
  • We enjoyed our Open Morning with some parents visiting. Our task was to build 1980s cars that could move on different surfaces.
  • We had to complete THREE High School Maths assessments. We were also learning about chance and probability in maths.
  • We created pop art style stamps of 1980s musicians.
  • Many of us started our roles as Active Sports leaders, following on from our training. We led sessions with P2s and 3s down on the field. We have had some very positive feedback from the children so well done!
  • Our spelling sound this week was nk and ng.
  • We completed our penultimate week of prefect duties.

Between now and the end of term, we are looking forward to:

  • Last week of prefect duties
  • We are allowed to go onto the field
  • Summer Holidays
  • Leavers’ Assembly
  • Lunch on the balcony
  • Two day visit to High school
  • Beltane

Have a wonderful weekend P7. Thank you for your continued hard work 🙂

Primary 7B Highlights

Although it has been a shorter week at school, we have packed a lot into our days!

We have been continuing with our response writing, with a focus on writing a response to the styles of clothes in the 1980s. The class have enjoyed exploring some of the key trends of the 80s including power suits, bold t-shirts with slogans and the unusual style of the New Romantics! We will be completing our writing next week.


In maths we have been revising place value and decimals. For practical maths, we have learning about the different ways we can define a triangle. Next week we will move onto learning about the different features of a circle and will learn how to draw one accurately with a compass.

We continued our 1980s learning by making dress up dolls and interchangeable outfits. We look forward to sharing this with the other P6 and 7 classes as we go ‘Through the Decades’!

A big well done to the children who represented the school in the Sportshall Athletics competition in Galashiels. They came a very impressive third place and showed good sportsmanship and encouraged each other. Thank you to Mrs Edge for her hard work in organising this trip and for preparing the children for the competition.

Other news:

  • We had our first whole school assembly in two years!
  • We gathered with all of the P7s to learn how to access Kooth, an online resource which can be accessed by 11-18 year olds. We learned about all of the website’s key features. The resources can be accessed by clicking here: Home – Kooth

Thank you for all of your hard work this week Primary 7!
