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!

Primary 7 – 24.02.17

It it the end of a very busy week with our visitors.

Throughout the week the children in Primary 7 spoke to our visitors on all aspects of school life. The visitors were very impressed with the children’s enthusiasm and knowledge of their learning.

On Monday and Tuesday the children participated in a World War Two day organised by the Military Museum Scotland. The children took part in quizzes, they got to dress up in military uniform, try on gas masks and look at a variety of memorabilia from WW1 and WW2. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and increased their knowledge and understanding of aspects of WW2. Well done to all the children who made the effort to dress up in a range of outfits from the 1940s. They looked fantastic!

Well done to the Sportshall Athletics group – they have been training hard the last few weeks and finally participated in the competition. Carmondean were the winning school from West Lothian and they came 9th overall. A commendable effort by all.

Miss Thomson from DCHS came to work with Mrs Gilmour’s maths set on Wednesday. They investigated fractions, decimals and percentages, and worked through a range of tasks. Miss Thomson will be visiting Miss Wilson’s maths set next Wednesday.

The children are continuing to work on programming using KODU. They have made a racing game and they will get to evaluate a class mate’s game next week.
