We have had another busy and varied week. We have started our ‘Changing Me’ topic and on Friday had a look at the reproductive process in plants. We had drama with Izzy again and we’re finding out about Shetland stories to retell. We have been developing our map skills and this week looked at angles, bearings and coordinates. In our topic we are thinking about ‘Places that make us happy’ and we’ll be presenting all that information soon. In French we are learning how to describe ‘Ma famille’.
The class looked fantastic today, in their Christmas jumpers and decorations. The P7 display is up in the hall and the class has worked really hard on all the crafts.
Hayden opened Kelsi’s doors on the advent calendar, with more lovely Pokemon drawings.
Have a good weekend everyone, ho, ho, ho!
This week the Primary 7s made their Biodiversity presentations to the class. They have worked very hard on these, first doing their research, then writing a report, next they made their presentations using powerpoints, posters etc and finally today they presented them to the class. Ms Scanlan was very impressed. She thought that they had found out some excellent information, organised it well and presented it clearly to the class. WELL DONE!
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.
Have a lovely weekend, Ms Scanlan
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!
Have a good weekend!
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.
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).
Have a good weekend everyone and stay safe.
The Primary 7 bairns have been developing their digital skills using Stop Motion animation. They have worked so imaginatively and enthusiastically on their Halloween creations, learning lots of tricks for effectively adding video and sound.
The final video versions will follow. I hope they don’t scare you too much!!!
What a busy week we have had again. Finishing off all our owl pellet work. We have also been finding out about more food chains and webs, planting more trees, drawing and painting barn owls and finally listening to a fantastic performance in the hall this afternoon.
What a lovely term we have had and what a great class the P7s are.
Have a great holiday 🙂
This week we have been finding out about food chains and food webs.
Today Ms Scanlan brought in some long-eared owl pellets that had been found in Shetland. We spent the afternoon taking them apart and seeing what the owls had been eating. There were lots of bones in there and we could identify mice and rats by the jaw bones and teeth that we found. Everyone worked really hard and concentrated so well on what they were finding. It was really interesting.
