Yesterday we made pancakes to practice using measuring equipment independently – electronic scales and measuring jugs – and to show we could follow instructions successfully.
We followed a recipe in small groups and Miss Henry didn’t even need to help us! It was great practice for Secondary 1 Home Economics at the Anderson High School, which lots of us are very much looking forward to.
Each term, Primary 7N and Primary 7S are mixed into cooperative learning groups to carry out research projects. This term, we started off with some team building activities to get to know each other a little better. Groups were tasked with building a tall, stable, strong tower using only masking tape and newspapers. Here are some pictures of the building in action!
P7N have been working on their gymnastics in the gym these last few weeks and have had lots of fun! This week, moved around the different pieces of equipment using a combination of rolling, balancing and jumping.
It was wonderful to see so many pupils, parents and grandparents at the Jubilee Dance tonight. What a super night – great music by the Peter Wood Dance Band, a lovely supper – big thank you to Carol Jamieson, champion bannock maker and Dorothy Robertson for the soup.
The P7 pupils did a fantastic job pulling it all together and getting the school looking so good. We were impressed with all the dancing.
Thank you for supporting us and helping us raise money towards the P7 trips this year.
Primary 7N have also been busy creating their own board games, with instructions, in cooperative learning groups. They were inspired by their class novel – “The Brilliant World of Tom Gates” by Liz Pichon. Pichon uses lots of doodle cartoons and calligrams to make her stories even more interesting. P7N used these techniques on their board games to make them really eye catching and quirky.
We had a really fun afternoon playing our completed board games.
