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.

Hello to all,

We had a visit from West Lothian drug and Alcohol Services on Monday where the children learned about the dangers of smoking. The children were given a task to research some of the different chemicals found in cigarettes which will be used in their lesson next week.

The children have started a Remembrance challenge. They have been learning about how different countries commemorate Remembrance and the significance of poppies and war memorials. The children have put a lot of effort into their challenge and we look forward to seeing the completed displays!

On Tuesday Primary 7 went to DCHS for a transition morning where they got to experience a range of lessons including PE, Art, Maths and Science. The children had a great experience and are looking forward to their next transition visit.

On Wednesday afternoon Mr Anderson from the music department at DCHS visited primary 7 to practise the song we will be singing at the High School Christmas concert.

Today selected pupils will be attending the Sportshall Athletics event at Craigswood Sports centre. Check the blog next week to find out how they got on!
