This week Primary 7s have been starting to make their ppts or posters for their presentations. We learnt how to make an engaging ppt and what sort of things we need to put in them. Ms Scanlan is really looking forward to hearing /seeing them next week.
The class worked together to produce a lovely instrumental piece for the Christmas show – but we’re not telling you what it is!
On Friday we had our first transition meeting. This year it was online. On Monday we had written questions and sent them to Mrs Adamson. All the three cluster schools joined in today and we heard all about Sandwick. It was great to have our questions answered and to see some of the staff and what the school is like.
This afternoon we are working on our advent calendar display. We have also talked about our ‘giving advent calendar’. This year more than ever it is important to donate to the food bank, so any donations will be gratefully received.
The Primary 7s have been doing lots of work on their group presentations. They have all been continued researching and have written their scripts. There are lots of interesting facts that they have been finding out. In French we have been using more adjectives in our writing , describing cats! We have started to think about what we are doing for our Christmas video, we had lots of fun on Thursday starting to film it and coming up with ideas.
Lots of the class have been doing the JRSO daily challenges and we had a very stripy zebra day!
We have had another busy week. We have been starting to plan our Biodiversity group projects, deciding what to find out about, learning how to write a report and deciding who and when we will do what! Ms Scanlan is looking forward to the final presentations. We have been learning a bit more about adaptations to the environment and extinctions. In French we have been continuing to write/ talk about animals and this week we learnt to use a few more adjectives. In maths we have been learning a few more mental maths multiplication methods, before we start on the standard methods next week.
Have a good weekend.
Today your child will be coming home with a maths booklet and the following note in their diary, to explain how we will be doing homework from now on. We have had a good discussion about how it needs to be completed, but if you don’t understand anything, please ask.
It has been another busy week, with lots of different activities. Yesterday the class wrote imaginative bonfire poems. Today we took advantage of a beautiful November’s day, to do some maths tables work outside and we finished the day doing the Boddam Loop walk (thanks to Michelle for coming along with us).
