Primary 1 – 17.09.21

In Primary one we have had a very busy first few weeks at school. We have all settled in really well and know the daily routines of primary one. We have enjoyed taking part in a range of activities and learning experiences through play.

In literacy we have been learning the following sounds: s, a, t, p, n, i. We have been identifying words that begin with these sounds and practising our letter formations. We have had some reading books home and have been reading in class every day. Please ensure your child has their reading folder in their bag each day.

In numeracy we have been focusing on number formations and counting forwards and backwards. Backwards is quite tricky but we all try very hard! We have been focusing on money – looking at different ways to pay and identifying coins. We enjoy paying for our hairstyles and food from the café in our playroom!

Through our play, the children have become very interested in babies and families. It would be great if you could send in any baby photos (on Seesaw or physical photos) of your child.

Reminders:

  • All children should have indoor shoes.
  • Please ensure water bottles only contain water in them.
  • PE days are Monday and Wednesday.
  • Reading books are handed out on a Monday and must be returned on a Friday. We are using these everyday so it would be great if your child could have their reading folders in their bags every day.

Mrs Macaulay, Mrs Muir & Mrs Steel

Primary 7. 24.03.20

Tuesday 24th March 2020

Hello Primary 7.

As you know, using the TEAMS system was quite challenging for us yesterday.

We understand that sometimes you will be unable to access files and you may get a message saying ‘something went wrong’. This is due to the fact that the TEAMS system is very busy with lots of people using it.

Please know that we are doing our best to ensure you can access your work successfully.

Remember that you can complete your tasks in any order you wish. If you have completed everything for the day then you can work on the following things:

  • My Life So Far
  • Learning spelling words/ get someone at home to do speed writing with or play hangman
  • Read your book from the class library or indeed one of your own
  • Have a go at Fitness Monopoly from your packs.

 

We do not expect you to be working online all day. Some tasks should be completed in your jotter. If you cannot complete assignments online you can do these in your jotter!  It is also important that you take time to relax, play, exercise and spend time with people at home too.

 

Rules for TEAMS chat:

Please remember that this chat is designed to ensure you can access your learning and ask questions about your learning.

The chat needs to be as streamlined as possible as it can be difficult to follow everyones individual comments. Please do not reply as a new thread – instead to reply to someone click ‘reply’ to the comment you wish to reply to.

Before writing a comment in the chat please ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is my comment appropriate?
  • Has someone else already asked the same question? (If they have you may find the answer in their reply)

 

PE –

If you can, it would be great to start each day with some exercise. Joe Wicks ‘Body coach’ is running an online class every day at 9am (don’t worry if you can’t tune in at 9am – it will be available after 9 too!) Here is the link-

Health –

In such a busy, connected world. It is more important than ever to take time for yourself. Mindfulness is when we are thinking about what we are doing right now. Ignoring the past or the future, we just think about the present.

Today we would like you to try meditation.

Primary 7 13.03.20

Friday 13th March 2020

 

This week in spelling the Morpurgos were working on the ‘oa’ sound. The Rowlings and Walliams are focusing on words with a ‘long e’ sound spelled with y. Next week is a whole review on all the words over the last 4 weeks – so p7 get cracking!

In topic we are still working on World War II.This week we are learning about the Blitz. The name comes from a German word meaning lighting war. We came into class this morning to find our houses have been destroyed by a terrifying night of bombing! We know the Blitz lasted for many months and a lot more destruction is to come! We have learnt so much more and hoping to learn more.

In class we created a silhouette of a soldier and placed it on a rounded black piece of paper and covered in in coloured tissue paper all over the back to create really effective stain glass windows.

In maths we have be looking at areas of triangles. What you do is find the area of a rectangle and then half it.

In numeracy we have been looking at negative numbers and where we can find them. We have learnt that you can find negative numbers on a thermometer and when working with money.

Every week the show gets better and better more props have been added, more lines known and more actions for songs have been coming left, right and centre!

Blog written by Ruiri Taylor and Mrs Macaulay

Reminders:

Spelling – Due Friday

Show – continue to learn script and song words

Education city – available for literacy and numeracy tasks.

My Life So Far – continue to add more information and illustrations.

Primary 7 05.03.20

Today is world book day and we have all brought in our favourite books and when a bell sounds at different times of the day we all stop what we are doing and read our books .In literacy circles we have all finished are books and we have started writing book reviews. We have really enjoyed reading our books and some of us are now reading a different one!

In topic this week we have written a diary to recall what we as WWII characters would have been doing during the war to help out.

We enjoyed exploring Education City. We played lots of different games and a really fun game wear you pick a snail and race against people in school and in class. To win you need to get the most points by answering maths questions as quickly as possible. It is so much fun!

Our show is still coming along brilliantly and for the first time we had the stage up and we used Props! Yes, you heard correctly, props have been added during rehearsal! It is an amazing show and it is on the 2nd of  April – we hope you are coming!

In numeracy Mrs Macaulay’s group started learning about negative numbers – we were looking at reading scales and answering lots of tricky word problems! We learned about overdrafts and we learn more about money as we continue. Mrs Wylie’s numeracy class have been converting between top heavy and mixed fractions.

Your blog today was written by Kira & Ruiri

Primary 7 21.02.20

Hello and welcome to this week’s Primary 7 blog! Although it has been a short week we have certainly managed to fit a lot in!

We have been learning about a very sensitive subject in topic – The Holocaust. In 1933 Hitler became leader of Germany and blamed Jewish people for losing the First World War and decided to punish them (as well as some other people) in the most unimaginable way. We watched some videos on Newsround which explained what life was like for these people. We know how important it is to research this topic with an adult. We feel it is so important for everyone to know about the awful things that happened so that it never happens again.

In numeracy we are all continuing to work on fractions, decimals and percentages. We have been converting between them, ordering them, and working out fractions and percentages of amounts.

We have all been enjoying our five minute challenge at the start of numeracy sessions – our Ninja booklets. In this time we have to answer a range of maths and numeracy questions which cover all areas of the curriculum and beyond!

In writing we have been focused on explanation writing. This week we wrote clear explanations about how a volcano erupts. This took us back to our natural disasters topic in our first term of primary 7 – it seems so long ago!

Coming to Carmondean Primary School very soon… our Primary 6&7 show – What’s the Crime Mr Wolf? Props are being created left, right and centre by our art team. Dances are coming along step by step. Songs are being sung passionately. The whole production is coming together amazingly.

Please continue to learn your lines and song words.

Your blog was written today by Dean, Kira, Aiden, Ruiri, Eva, Lana, Michael, Sara’a, Erin and Reuben.

Reminders:

Monday – Outdoor PE

Tuesday – Visitor to P7

Wednesday – Dance group at lunchtime

Thursday – Literacy Circles, Handball tournament

Numeracy and Maths

In both Mrs Wylie and Mrs. Macaulay’s class we were working with fractions, decimals and percentages. It was very fun to learn about we love numeracy very much.

In maths we continued to learn about perimeter and angles.

 

WWII Families

This week we have been told some more information about our 1939 characters. The children have been told where they have been evacuated to, the mums have now been informed where they are working and the soldiers have been deployed! We are looking forward to finding out what is going to happen next.

Primary 6/7 show

This week we found out some of the peoples roles in the primary 6 7 show. We have been learning the songs and starting to look at the script!

Primary 7 05.12.19

After weeks of dedication and planning Primary 7 Enterprise at the Christmas Fair on Friday was huge success. All the pupils worked their socks off at their stalls and made an outstanding profit of £335.09!

On Tuesday we delivered our assembly to the whole school. It went absolutely brilliantly, everyone enjoyed it and our mashup sounded fantastic. Our message to the school was to think less about what you want and more about want you would like to give or do for others.

On Wednesday two teachers from Deans Community High School came to visit us. They talked to us about the three types of science – chemistry, biology and physics. We took part in a chemistry experiment where we had to precisely put 10 drops of potassium iodide and 10 drops of lead nitrate together in a test tube. When mixed these two liquids turned yellow instantly. We then used filter paper in a funnel to separate the solids from the liquids which were created by mixing the two liquids together. We are really excited to take part in more science experiments in the future!

The company who make our Primary 7 leavers hoodies have a competition running this month. The first prize is money towards our order. The competition involves us redesigning Santa’s uniform. We have come up with some really great ideas and look forward to sending these away in the hopes of winning!

Primary 7 – 22.11.19

Michelle from West Lothian Drugs and Alcohol Services came to visit us on Monday. We learned about the effects of smoking on our health, finances and relationships. We were shocked to hear that cigarettes contain thousands of chemicals. During the week we researched some of these chemicals and where else they are found. We are looking forward to her next visit on Monday.

On Tuesday we visited the Risk Factory where we experienced a range of situations highlighting dangers and risks. We learned about to keep ourselves safe and who to contact if we needed help.

This week we have been working hard to learn our words and songs for both the St Andrews assembly and our class assembly. Our singing is absolutely fantastic! Please continue to learn these song words at home (especially Auld Lang Syne final verse!)

Primary 7 have been incredibly busy preparing for their stalls at the Christmas Fair. We have created a range of beautiful gifts and fun games to play. We have works out our costs and potential profit and look forward to finding out our total profit on the day! Please come along and support us on Friday 29th November!

We think if Santa walked into our rooms at this moment in time he would want to employ us at the North Pole to boost the productivity of his elves. The motivation and commitment of our pupils to cost, manufacture and market their products and games has been fantastic. Primary 7 are buzzing! Please come along and support our pupils Enterprises at the Christmas Fair. We are sure you will pick up a few brilliant gift ideas for Christmas!

We have been discussing the true meaning of this time of year. To start off our conversation we asked the pupils if they had a magical power and could give a gift to every citizen of the world – what would that gift be?

Casey started the conversation with ‘a hot bath – everybody just needs clean water’. The gift ideas spiralled from there – food, shelter, love, education, peace and friendship. Wouldn’t it be lovely if our magical gifts were granted? We are preparing a small school assembly to share our gifts with the rest of the school.

In health we continued to look at the Eatwell plate to help us to analyse some food diaries. Using our knowledge we had to suggest a few healthier food swaps to ensure the person was getting a balanced diet. We are completing our own food diaries for the week and will be bringing them in on Monday to complete a task with them.

In PE we have been learning about Parkour which involves negotiating obstacles by running, jumping and climbing. We are really enjoying this and are developing our skills with increasing speed.

In maths we are focusing on coordinates in four quadrants. Through plotting points on the coordinate grids we realised the importance of reading the x and y axis very carefully! In numeracy we are continuing to focus on decimals and money. As part of our Enterprise project it is very important for us to be able to budget, work out our costs, profit and losses.

A tree has sprouted in Primary 7 !  When completing challenges and activities in class, we are focusing on particular skills we have used. We know we will use such skills throughout our lives so we are developing firm routes. At the end of each week we use coloured stickers to mark the skills we feel we have been using.

We have attached a picture of a sign that is displayed in primary 7. It reinforces the message we give to pupils regarding social media. We would like to highlight that the legal age recommendation for using Snapchat and Facebook is 13. Within our health and wellbeing lessons, we continually remind pupils about the responsibilities which go along with using such communication tools .We fully appreciate that the use of certain social media site are completely out with the schools parameters, however, we would like to point out that any negative use can affect the class ethos .We would ask that all parents support us in highlighting the guidelines for responsible use. Many Thanks.

 

Jam Jar Appeal!!

For our Enterprise topic we need lots of clean jam jars with lids. If you can – please send any in to Primary 7 who will be very grateful!

Thank you in advance

Primary 7 01.11.19

This week some of our primary 7’s took part in the ‘Creation Station’. Here is what they have to share:

On Tuesday 15 of us went to the art room for a robotics workshop. everyone wrote their names on a piece of sticky paper. Then we decorated a paper cup and put three pens on the cups with tape. Next we put a battery with wires on the top of the cup to make it vibrate. It was then motorised so when we attached a wooden peg on to the battery, the robotic model started to move. We had already taken the three lids off the pens, enabling the pens to move across the paper and form a colourful picture. We had a great time and were excited to share our work with the rest of our class. Written by Ruiri, Jack, Reuben and Willow

In numeracy we have been using BODMAS to help us to answer complex sums which include brackets, square numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division! In maths we have been focusing on identifying and plotting coordinates.

In health we have been looking at the Eatwell plate and learning about each section. We had to become an expert in a certain section and teach each other about the foods, recommended portion sizes and nutrients found in these foods. Next week we will continue to focus on the Eatwell plate and use our knowledge to help us with our tasks!

For My Life So Far we planned our ‘school’ section. We noted down our teachers, topics and memories that we wish to include in our projects. Please continue to work on gathering information and working on your MLSF at home.

On Tuesday next week we will be embarking on our first Transition morning to Deans Community High School. We are looking forward to visiting different departments and taking part in a range of lessons! We will let you know how we get on next week!

Primary 7 27.09.19

In maths we have been looking at symmetry and shapes. In Symmetry we looked at regular and irregular polygons to find out how many sides and lines of symmetry each had. We learned about the properties of 3D Shapes including pyramids, prisms, cuboid, cone, dodecahedron, triangular based pyramid, square based pyramid, cylinder and sphere.   Michael says a cube whilst not a polygon, is made up of that shape (6 squares).

We are working on our times tables. We have been learning long multiplication using tens, hundreds and thousands. Remember to practise these at home!

In writing we have been focusing on Persuasive writing – We chose our favourite holiday destination and tried to entice the reader that that would be their dream place they wanted to visit.  We used brilliant openers, points of view/paragraphs, emotive language, adjectives and adverbs and finally supported our point of view.  We will be continuing to focus on writing persuasively over the next few weeks.

In PE we are continuing with Basketball and learned various techniques; we were split into four teams where two of the teams not playing assessed two players on the pitch to ascertain if they had good passes, dribbling skills and shooting techniques.

In French  we looked at general  everyday conversations and learned how to answer a partner when he/she asked a question.  We then wrote some conversations into speech bubbles.

We are continuing to learn all about Japan. This week we compared the country to Scotland and found out several differences.  We are so looking forward to a visit from the Japanese Consulate next week.

Hello, it has been a very short week, however we have managed to fit a lot in!

Rachel from Dogs Trust came to visit us on Thursday with her dog (don’t worry it wasn’t real!) She taught us about what dogs need to be happy and healthy and answered all of our questions about her job. We enjoyed learning how to budget for a dog. We had to decide which dog we would like and picked dog products which suited our chosen dog. Each item had a price which we had to add up. We couldn’t believe how much money our dogs would cost us to look after them for just one year – the amount ranged from £750 – over a thousand pounds!!

In maths we are continuing to learn about the properties of 2D shapes – we focused on the circle. We learned about the names of each part of a circle and were very good at the circle quiz! In numeracy we have continued to look at place value to a million and beyond – this has included rounding, estimating, decimals and much more!

With Ms Fox we have started to create our Japanese masks which we have been planning and practising for. These masks will be unique as we have made up our own special patterns inspired by Japanese culture. Look out for them around the school over the next couple of weeks!

In literacy we learned about a special poem which originates from Japan called a Haiku. It is a special poem which is only 3 lines long! It also follows a rule where the first line contains 5 syllables, the second line contains 7 syllables and the third line has 5 syllables. These poems are normally about nature, seasons and feelings about these. We drew fabulous pictures in the background of our poems to go with our wonderful writing.

Primary 7 – 06.09.19

Bonjour!

We have had a very busy week in Primary 7 this week. We began our first topic of Primary 7 – Japan. We learned about where Japan is in relation to Scotland, looked at the Japanese flag and discussed what we know about the landscape, culture and much more. We are looking forward to finding out more next week!

In RME we learned about special journeys called Pilgrimages. We researched and discussed some pilgrimages that some Christians go on. Each week we will be focusing on different pilgrimages from a different World religion.

In maths we have been working on symmetrical patterns and completing the other half of a given pattern with a range of vertical, horizontal and diagonal mirror lines. We have also been looking at the properties of 2D shapes with a focus this week on quadrilaterals. In numeracy we have been busy practicing our mental recall skills and learning about place value of 6 digit numbers and beyond.

Chris and Derek came to our classes on Wednesday to deliver a workshop about racism. We learned that we should not judge people on how they look and get to know the person. We talked about the effect racism has on people and took part in a range of activities.

Hello,

Primary 7’s have taken multi tasking to a whole new level. We have produced, written, created, choreographed, sang, played … and that was just Tuesday morning! Maths and numeracy of course took up the rest of the week. (On a serious note – we are encouraging children to come up with any concepts they wish to revisit for example: prime numbers – apparently some had forgotten the definition of a prime number! Please be having these conversations at home so that we can share at class time.)
Back to our moments of creation. The children have taken ownership of their leavers activities and we are very proud of their originality and effort.

* IMPORTANT * IMPORTANT * IMPORTANT * IMPORTANT * IMPORTANT * IMPORTANT * IMPORTANT * IMPORTANT * IMPORTANT *

Please continue to learn your words children!

Reminders:
Please arrive at CPS no later than 8.15 on Monday morning. We will be leaving promptly to ensure we arrive at Deans Community High School in time for registration.

Primary 7 – 31.05.19

Our classrooms have been a hive of activity this week, as our busy primary 7s have focused on adding the finishing touches to My Life So Far. We have been very impressed with the originality and creativity we have seen and we look forward to receiving all copies today.

We have started to work on our Leavers Assembly and the ideas being put forward by the P7s and certainly exciting! One idea is sparking off another. Keep it up P7!

Within numeracy we are currently revising and testing our knowledge, we will be high school ready! Pupils have been asked to highlight or suggest particular areas that they feel they would like to review.

Everyone should now have brought home a letter with information about our Beach Trip on the 18th June .

Primary 7 have been very busy this week.

We have been working on our topic – ‘Leaving a Legacy’. Each team have been working on a campaign based on an environmental issue that we feel strongly about. We have been busy writing letters, creating posters, PowerPoints and filming our campaign speeches. We will continue to work hard on our campaigns over the next week.

In maths and numeracy we have been working on a range of topics including algebra and data handling. We also have been enjoying playing ‘beat the buddy’ in mental maths.

We have been busy planning and preparing for our Leavers’ Assembly – we will continue to work on this over the next few weeks and are getting excited about performing it in front of everyone on our last week of Primary school!

Our big Primary 7 piece of homework is due in next Friday. The children have worked really hard at home and in class on their projects. All pupils have a checklist to help them make sure they have all the information they need for their My Life So Far. These projects will be shared with peers and shown at assembly to celebrate their time at Carmondean Primary.

Primary 7 24.05.18

Hello everyone,

This week has been very busy in primary 7.

Our classes have been put back to normal as everyone is back from France. Everyone enjoyed the trip but they are happy to be home without any rain!

Some of the primary 7s took part in the DCHS maths challenge. We sent 2 teams. One of the teams came 3rd and the other came 4th. We took part in difficult challenges which we worked as a team to complete.

We have made great progress in our leaver’s assembly and can’t wait to perform for our family and the school children in other primaries.

In class maths we have been learning how to use a protractor accurately to measure the degrees of different angles like a right angle, straight angle, and obtuse angles.

In PE we have been helping Mrs Ferguson to test the activities (for example – jumping hurdles and throwing javelins) which the school will be doing to earn points on sports day next month.

Remember everyone in primary seven should have a completed my life so far by the 1st of June.
