Term 1 comes to an end in P7a

On Monday we finished our Dodgeball sessions in PE with a round robin competition. We have all enjoyed these lessons and become more accurate over the past 6 weeks. We did our final leadership groups of this term and the Newspaper group completed this terms Springfield News.

On Tuesday we started our stories for the Rotary Club, Annual Jim Clark Memorial Trophy writing competition, this year the topic is on Connections. We discussed what this meant to us before writing a variety of interesting stories. In Science we had a visit from Mr Marshall from Linlithgow Academy to introduce us to the F1 challenge we will be taking part in next term. It looks really exciting and we are looking forward to completing this activity after the holidays.

On Wednesday we had our Harvest Festival in the afternoon, this was a good chance for us to reflect on our own lives and those who need more help and support in our community and around the world.

We watched a BBCTeach, Growth Mindset and Health and Wellbeing lesson on Thursday as part of Mental Health Awareness Day. We learned a few calm down ideas, including finger breathing (ask us what this is and we can show you 🙂 ). We started our Futsal sessions as well, this was interesting and fun.

Today was our dress down day, raising funds for St Michael’s Hospital. We received our new leadreship badges as well 🙂 We completed a Short Read, Blankety Blank task on our class novel and then finished the day with a variety of problem solving tasks.

Have a great holiday, don’t forget we are all back on Tuesday 22nd October.

P7a and Mrs Newton
