Primary 7 17.3.16

Hello everyone

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Primary 6 and 7 production of “Hosanna!” on Wednesday. We were so proud of all the children in P7 whose talent and commitment shone throughout both performances. We hope you all enjoyed the show ๐Ÿ™‚

This week we have been rounding off our WW2 topic with another challenge! The children have been working in groups of 4 or 5 to create a large poster showing their knowledge of World War 2. All posters must include information on: How the war started; the political parties involved and each party’s views; the effects that the war had on people in Britain and how the war eventually ended. The children have half an hour left to complete their posters, create a presentation of their work and they then will present it to the rest of the class. We look forward to seeing the final products ๐Ÿ™‚

As part of our WW2 topic we have also begun watching “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas”. Two of the reading groups in each class have been doing a novel study on the book this term. The children who are in these groups have been taking notes on the similarities and differences between the film and book throughout the viewing of the film. Next week the children will write up a comparison piece based on the film and the book. Next week we will also be watching “Goodnight Mr Tom” in class which the other reading group in each class has been reading this term in order to also complete a comparison piece of writing. We are looking forward to reading the children’s interesting comparisons ๐Ÿ™‚

Primary 7 11.03.16

Hello everyone!

Primary 7 have had a very busy week. On Wednesday the Primary 6 and 7 children performed “Hosanna!” in front of the whole school and staff. The children performed excellently with fantastic singing, beautiful dancing and superb acting! Miss Farren and I were so proud of all of the children. Please remember that you can come to watch “Hosanna!” next Wednesday 16th March at 1:30pm or 6:30pm at the Pentecostal Church in Fells Rigg. Tickets are available from the office.

Change of timetable

As of next week our timetable will change somewhat. Outdoor PE will still be on a Tuesday afternoon for both classes. However, indoor PE times are changing to a Wednesday afternoon until the end of the summer term. Next week is an exception as due to our show performances Indoor PE will be on a Thursday (17.3) for one week only. We will remind the children of this in class. The children will also no longer have art with Ms Fox but will continue working with Mr Platt in music on a Wednesday.

Our WW2 topic is nearing its end. The children have worked very hard throughout this topic and have been enthusiastic about their learning. In order to celebrate what we have learned we have invited “Home Front Histories” into school on the last week of term for a full day interactive workshop. Miss Farren’s class will attend the workshop in school on Monday 21st March and Miss Clark’s class will go on Tuesday 22nd March. On these days children are encouraged to come into school dressed as a child in the 1940s. We are sure it will be a fun and informative day for all! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you. Have a lovely weekend.
