Primary 7

We celebrated World Book Day by having a shared reading session with our P1 buddies. The P7s did an imaginative job of bringing characters to life and those reading nonfiction delivered and discussed facts in a stimulating ways. Well done P7 !

Our rehearsals are going well and our choreography team are in full force!.

LEARNING SCRIPTS * LEARNING SCRIPTS* LEARNING SCRIPTS

Please help our P7s to learn their words. The countdown is on and we need pupils to be able to deliver their lines without relying on their scripts. Many thanks to those who have sent in show costumes already.

We are continuing with our investigation of shapes and we have been learning to describe the various properties of individual shapes . Please quiz you child and ask them to list a variety of properties of any household item .

We would like to remind everyone to return slips regarding our coffee afternoon next Tuesday. The event provides a great opportunity to ask question of the visiting Deans staff with regards to transition.

Primary 7 – 15/02/19

We knew that we had a talented bunch of pupils but we didn’t realise their talents stretched to directing and producing …the ideas from the pupils for developing their show are superb! Keep the creative juices flowing , we love to see some improvisation!

Quite a few of our pupils have been caught without their ID cards this week . Their ‘fines’ have ranged from press ups to cleaning paint pots. We carried out research on war time rationing this week. The pupils wrote their own typical weekly meals plan and then worked out what they would not be able to have if rationing was still enforced. Many were horrified ( and we don’t think that’s an exaggeration ) of the lack of variety and the limited fruit supplies . Of course sugar and chocolate in particular was discussed but we thought we would start with the fruit reaction!

We are calculating percentages of amounts in numeracy, if you are shopping and spot any discounts offering percentages off, please ask your child to calculate it for you.

We are delighted with the number of pupils who have shared their family history regarding WW2 , thank you to all the parents , grandparents and great grandparents who have helped bring our project to life . Your input is very much appreciated.

We hope everyone enjoys their long weekend !

Snow day 3

Hi Everyone,

Well done to all the children who have sent in pictures of what they have been doing. It is good to see all the inventive ways you are completing work.

My reading groups keep practicing your reading. This can be your school reading book or something you are reading at home. Next week if would be good if you could bring in any comics, magazines or books you have been reading to share with the group.

My math group keep a list of the games you have been playing to share with the group next week. Which is your favourite?

P6 and P7 I hope you are finding time to practice your words for the show. You could ask other family members to play the other parts to help you.

Euro Quiz group it would be good if you could share any interesting facts with us. What is the most obscure fact you have found? What fact has surprised you?

Enjoy your snow day but keep safe and warm.

Mrs Gilmour
