Primary 7 – 25.01.19

Happy Robert Burns Day!

Primary 7 had a fantastic Scots afternoon on Wednesday in light of Burns Day today. We are the first class to have had our haggis piped in by bagpipes which is a huge honour. Huge thanks to Leo who has worked so hard for the past 3 weeks to learn the music for us! We had our Address to the Haggis and Selkirk Grace performed by Alex and Aimee respectively, had some haggis and shortbread with juice and then sang songs and performed poems to each other. It was such a lovely afternoon and we must say thank you to those who stood up to perform their poems and joined in with the singing.

Our novels are beginning to grow on us all and we are having great discussions in class about our homework tasks. Everyone has really connected with the characters already and are eager to read their next section pages for Wednesday 30th.

In numeracy we are continuing to focus on fractions, decimals and percentages and we have been looking at circles and measurement in maths. Can you change 20cm into metres or millimetres?

Miss Mulhern’s class have just completed their swimming block and have thoroughly enjoyed it. We learned many different strokes and all showed great improvement in such a short time! Mrs Muir/Mrs Wylie’s class, we are sure you are going to love it too!

We have now given out parts for the school show. Please understand that the staff have many ideas for the show and are working hard to add in more lines or singing parts where we think possible. If your child is unhappy with their role, they must speak to their teacher about it before Tuesday and we will see what we can do.
