Rotary Club Quiz
On Friday the 17th March four of our P7 pupils took part in a quiz run by the Rotary Club, held at Peel Primary School.
Our team was made up of Daniel Nicol, Leigh Gillespie, Abbie Finlayson and Filippo Bosio. They were up against four other teams from the local area. The Harrysmuir team did really well coming 2nd place, sadly missing out on 1st place, won by Peel Primary, by one point.
The P7s were a credit to the school and had great fun.
Great effort, well done!
To kick start our Businesses and Community topic, we had a visit from the local Fire Service who told us all about their roles and responsibilities within our community. We were even lucky enough to have a turn on the very powerful hose and aim it at a target, and to go inside a fire engine! We had an insightful talk from the Community Fire Fighter who told us all how to stay safe and how we can check our alarms at home.

Today we had a visit from the Edinburgh International Science Festival Generation Science experts! We learned about how sounds are made through a story all about Ella’s Wobble. We learned all about echos, vibrations, pitch and how some animals and materials produce different sounds.
We even made our very own instruments that produce 2 very different sounds!
P6F presented a whole school assembly today to introduce the ‘Resourcefulness’ aspect of Building Learning Power. The whole school will be looking at how we can build our questioning, making links, imagining, reasoning and capitalising learning muscles. We will be designing a Resourcefulness Superhero and we can receive Resourcefulness certificates for each Learning muscle.
Parents & Carers please share any examples from home as well.
Here is our assembly PowerPoint:

As of this week we have introduced the use of Homework Grid. The grid shows various activities that should be completed over the next 3 weeks, with starred activities to be completed every week and returned each Monday. At the end of the 3 week block (Monday 13th March) all tasks should have been completed and handed in.
We have also introduced the use of jotters instead of booklets. Spelling tasks can be found in this jotter and are to be completed in the jotter.
(P2G – your reading related worksheets including guided reading questions and key words can be found at the back of the jotters).
We have also attached the weather forecasting worksheet (weather-map-worksheet), which is one of the tasks to be completed within the next 3 weeks.
Please remember that homework folders are to be returned every Monday and not just when the 3 weeks is up.
If there are any issues, please do not hesitate to talk to myself or Miss Miller.
