P7 – A Busy Few Weeks!

We are all excited to start Term 2 of P7 (can you believe it?!) and look forward to all of the new challenges it brings. We had a very busy few weeks before the October break and the holiday was well deserved! Camp was a huge success and the children were fantastic. Each child demonstrated enthusiasm and particpated in all activities, whether they were taking part, ‘belaying’ or encouraging their peers. It was inspiring to see how the boys and girls were so supportive of each other! Thanks to parents and carers for their support with camp preparations, too!
The week after camp was extremely busy too! On Tuesday, we visited the Sky Skills Academy and learnt how to make a news report for TV. We learned so many skills that we can transfer and take back to school. Directors, producers, camera operators, reporters, witnesses, and editors were just a few of the jobs involved. Mrs Carral and Miss Brown were sure they could spot a few future stars and ‘Oscar worthy’ performances! There were some fantastic individuals behind the camera too who kept things running so smoothly!
Then, on Wednesday, we visited The James Young High High School for the German Language Adventure, where we played some fun games and learned German phrases! We explored JYHS to find various clues and questions. It was great to explore the high school too, especially for those of us that will be going there next year!
On Thursday, P7a visited Lowport where they enjoyed cycling and canoeing after winning the ‘Cycle to School Competition’ when they were in P6. They had another action packed, fun filled day, gaining confidence and new skills!
Term 2 is another busy one, with our upcoming camp assesmbly, where we will be sharing with the other pupils our experience and some advice (especially for P6!) about what to expect! We will also be preparing for a Children In Need assembly so we encourage all the boys and girls to think about at home some fun ideas! Our WWII topic will be starting soon and we are sure the children will be excited to share what they know about the topic and what we will be learning.
