Hope you are all well.
The children have been working hard this week in primary 7 and we have started transition activities in preparation for the move to high school.
In health the children have been gaining further knowledge about the effects of puberty on their body. There were lots of questions which we have tried to answer but it may be beneficial for you to have a chat with your child at home to clarify any misunderstandings or misconceptions.
Our PE days are Monday (athletics) and Wednesday(circuits). It is important that the children have appropriate footwear and outdoor clothing for these days as I am sure you will agree we do not want the children to become injured if they are participating wearing inappropriate kit.
We have started work on Road Safety – this is particularly important for this age group as they are most at risk of being knocked down. The children investigated stopping distances, speed limits and how these have an effect on the drivers ability to react to situations. Many were shocked at how far it took a car to stop and this is why so many accidents occur. You may want to have a further discussion with your child about appropriate ways to cross the road.
Miss Lindsay worked with Primary 7 on Didbook. The children started their personal statement. They will be able to access this at home to work on it.
The children had a great time working with their P1 buddies on a challenge to build a house. We are not sure who enjoyed it most!
Your child’s My Life So Far project should be nearing completion. They will be working on it in school for the next few weeks. These are looking fantastic and we cannot wait to see the finished projects.
