This afternoon Primary 7 did something a little bit different for their assembly / show of learning. They split into four groups to explain about all the things that they were finding out about in Block 1. Each group split into two teams to make display boards and explain all about Pneumatics, Electricity, Enterprise and John Muir. The school split into their Focus Friday groups and parents joined the teams to visit each of the four workshops.
Toby did a fantastic job of timekeeping to keep us all on track, and everyone seemed to find their way from group to group.
After that, Primary 7 played a short piece from the beginning of their Radio Scotland Junior Historians show, that they made in the autumn. And finally Drew played a ‘Thank you for listening’ film that he had made using his drone.
The Primary 7s really enjoyed doing their assembly like this and said that it was a lot more fun and they enjoyed speaking to smaller groups and doing lots of activities. Ms Scanlan was very proud of all of them and hopes that the audience were too. Well done P7s!
Drew brought his new drone into school today, to show us what he can do with it.
He took our new class photo with it, from the air and explained how he can use it to video the school and local environment. We all really enjoyed it and loved watching the videos and seeing the photos.
This afternoon, we had our first Christmas concert and P7 were fantastic. Well done to everyone and especially to Mrs Inkster for all her help. The class started with Merry Christmas Eveyone. The instrumentalists played beautifully and the singers were superb. Then everyone sang Little Drummer Boy, Issac sang a solo, while Hannah played the keyboard. It all sounded wonderful.
The Primary 7s worked really hard during the last two terms on the Virgin Make £5 Grow enterprise project. They raised money for their school trip and staycation and will be selling more at a future date. Altogether so far, they have raised a fantastic £ 543.90!
We posted the amount on our FB page a few weeks ago.
Today we started to find out about electricity. We used the equipment that Ms Scanlan received from her SSERC science training last year. We found out about how circuits work, so that we could light a lamp and we found out about electrons.
