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.
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).
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!!!
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.
On 6th November, Emma Chittick came to P7 to start our renewable energy topic. We talked about the difference between renewable and non renewable energy, saw how turbines generate energy and were given the equipment to make our own turbines.
