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.

A fantastic show was performed on Wednesday! The children worked very hard learning lines, songs and stage directions and their performance was outstanding! Thank you for all of your support in helping the children achieve this level of excellence. Thank you for an amazing turn out, the audience really helped the children perform to their best. The next show for P7 will be our Leavers Assembly!
Miss Thomson made her final visit to P7G working on algebra. This was a scary thought at first but by the end everyone was solving algebraic equations. Well done!
The children watched the film version of the book they had been reading in Literacy Circles – Goodnight Mr Tom, The Diary of Anne Frank and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. The children discusses the differences and similarities between their books and the films.
The children have been working on memories about Eveline our dinner lady. There will be a special assembly today to wish her good luck in the next chapter of her life. Many of the children will miss her.
The children will be sharing what they have been working on up till now on their My Life So far. They will have an opportunity to work on this in school next term but most of it will need to be completed at home. The finished product should be handed in by Friday 2nd June. We look forward to reading the finished results.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy and holiday.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Wilson & Mrs Gilmour
It has been yet another busy week in Primary 7!
On Monday the children enjoyed using Google expeditions to explore the events of WW2. The children looked at some of the places that were affected in WW2, we visited the Tuskadee airmen and went on the USS Missouri . The children learned so much from this experience.
As part of our ERASMUS plus project we researched different aspects of Scotland. This included traditional food, clothing, music, dance, stories as well as the geography and tourist attractions. The children made slides which will be combined into one PowerPoint to tell our partner countries all about Scotland.
In writing the children created a leaflet to share their learning from the Risk Factory trip. The children chose how to create their leaflet – either writing it by hand or using Publisher. The leaflets were very informative and included information about how to stay safe in the home and outside.
Indoor PE this term is dance. The children have chosen their groups and decided on their music. They will now begin to create a routine which they will perform to an invited audience. The children will also have to think about appropriate costumes and advertising for this event.
On Wednesday the children began to work in their Literacy Circles groups. Each group chose a novel to focus on (Anne Frank, Blitz Cat, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Goodnight Mr Tom). The children will be working in their groups each Wednesday and will need to ensure they complete their homework tasks on a weekly basis.
As part of our class topic on WW2 the children have been given a personal project to undertake. Their challenge is to present information about an aspect of WW2 both as a booklet and as a class talk. In class the children were given time to research different aspects and choose a focus. There will be time in class on a Monday to work on this project as well as working on it at home.
Today we held our annual Burns Poetry competition. Two children from each class recited their poems to the whole school. Everyone did a fantastic job!
