Primary 7 – 17.03.17

Primary 7 have had a very busy week. The children have been practising for the school show – Alice the Musical. The children have been working really hard learning their lines and song words. Please ensure you child brings their costume in as we have our school dress rehearsal on Wednesday. If you wish to purchase tickets for the school show please complete the tear off slip on the letter that was given out this week and return to school.

The children have been working hard on their WW2 personal projects during the past few weeks at home and in class. These are looking brilliant and are due in today. If your child has not been able to hand it in today, please ensure it is handed in on Monday.

As part of their personal project, the children have been asked to prepare a class talk where they will be able to present information about their chosen research area. These will be taking place next week. A lot of hard work has gone into these projects and we cannot wait to find out what the children have found out!

Hello,

This morning we are off to DCHS to take part in the Hurricane challenge. We will give you more details of how we got on next week.

We are continuing to practise for our school show, Alice the Musical. The children have been working very hard learning their lines and the songs. Please continue helping them with these and I’m sure we will have a fabulous show! Please can you send in all costumes as soon as possible. Thank you.

The children had their last dance rehearsal in PE and they will be performing their dance to P1s and the rest of primary 7 on Tuesday.

PSA Spring disco was a great success. The children had a great time dancing their socks off!

Primary 7 -13.01.17

Hello to Everyone,

It has been another busy week in P7.

The children have been working hard learning their Burns poems. Nearly everyone has learned the words and they are now adding in expression and actions where appropriate. It would be appreciated if you could also help your child with this. The children will be reciting their poem in class on Wednesday or Thursday next week and the 2 children who get the most votes will represent their class at the school Burns Competition. Good Luck to everyone!

We have started our World War 2 topic and the children have lots of questions. If you have any memorabilia that we could show the children this would help bring the topic to life. Even better if you know anyone who would be willing to speak to the children about their experiences please let us know.

We had a very successful visit to the Risk Factory on Tuesday. The children learned strategies to keep them safe in a variety of scenarios. The children will be creating safety leaflets about this in writing next week.

Auditions have been taking place for our show ‘Alice The Musical’. All children will find out what part they have been allocated next Wednesday. To make the show a success we need all children to attend both the afternoon and evening performances. If they are unable to attend in the evening please give us plenty of notice about this so we can adjust their part accordingly as it is unfair to expect other children to stand in at the last minute.

My Life So Far is not being worked on in school this term so the children will need to work on it at home. First draft of the project to be handed in Friday 31st March 2017.

Reminders

  • After school clubs have started
  • Spelling homework due each day and all by Friday
  • Swimming on a Friday for P7G

Thank you for your continued support with all aspects of school life.

Primary 6 04.01.17

Happy New Year Everyone!

We hope that you had a fantastic festive period. We were very happy to welcome the children back to school today and hear about their exciting holidays.

This week is the start of a very busy term for Primary 6. Today we began learning songs with Mr Platt for the P6/7 Show which this year is “Alice in Wonderland”. Some children have chosen to audition for bigger roles in the production. Everyone will find out their role within the show in the next couple of weeks. Please look out for scripts in your child’s school bag. We appreciate all of the support you give children to prepare for school shows at home.

We will be continuing to work on “A Tale Unfolds” for the first few weeks of this term until our class film has been completed. Once this is completed we will begin work on our new Interdisciplinary topic: The Titanic.

This week the children have also been reflecting on their own progress last term and will set themselves new goals for what they would like to achieve both in and outwith school in 2017. Please discuss these targets with your child.

PE days are now:
Indoor PE – Monday
Outdoor PE – Thursday

Thank you for all your support. See you next week!

Miss Clark, Mrs Kelly & Mrs Wylie
