We cannot quite believe that this is our final term at Williamston Primary School! It is almost time for high school already!
We completed a big maths beat that challenge in maths to put our mental agility to the test.
We have also been learning more about the different parts of a circle. In addition to this we have worked hard on using a compass this week to draw circles. We explored tricky circle patterns and created our own patterns too.
Limefield were the winners this week! Well done. Limefield were also the winning house overall from last term and they had their house prize this week. They took part in a bunny drive, got some free time in the playground and got some mini eggs to eat too!
We took part in The Easter Code which involved cracking a special code. We had to find 5 words beginning with ‘s’ to help us. We learned more about the Easter story by taking part in different activities. Please ask us more about it!
This Thursday we had our first week of outdoor PE where we were out on the field developing our hockey skills. We played different games to help us feel more confident with controlling and dribbling the ball and shooting at a target.
Some of us helped with gardening on the field and we were even visited by a local cat who was interested in what we were up to!
It was an excitable morning in P7 today as our P7 leavers party invites were delivered. Harry Potter music was played across the tannoy and some owls delivered our invites through the windows.
We enjoyed doing our show this week, we thought it was brilliant and our audience did too!Grace thought it was funny when her moustache fell off and Isabel’s glasses broke in two.
Well done to those pupils who got certificates for Science Fair.
We worked on a story titled ‘Eye of the storm’ for Young Writer.
Finally we shared Easter holiday gifts for our buddies.
Happy easter holidays everyone!
This week, we started learning about the value of the month, perseverance. We also started to prepare for our assembly next Friday 27th January – All parents/carers etc welcome at 9:05am.
We had a visit from Gavin Thomson who delivered a lesson to us on perseverance – This will help us with our assembly preparations.
We learned and prepared our Scottish poems for the competition this week. Miss Gardiner was VERY impressed with us! It was a hard decision, but the class voted and Hannah, Rebecca & Abbie had the most votes and are through to the final round! Exciting times! Well done, girls!
In maths, we started some revision on fractions and next week, will be further developing our knowledge.
In writing this week, we focused on characters and setting. We also focused on the layout and structure for our imagintive stories.
**Reminder – Our WW2 projects are due next Friday 27th January.
This week in P7a, we’ve been doing lots of different things!
In our WW2 topic, we learned about aircraft during the war and made spitfire planes. We finished off our Anderson shelters and our gas masks. We created ‘London Blitz’ scenes using oil pastels and water paints.
We learned about Martin Luther King during our assembly with Mrs Dare.
We revised our learning in multiplication and division. We also enjoyed using SumDog to further our learning.
We chose Scottish poems to learn for our school poem competition/Scottish evening.
We did some writing using a WW2 based lesson on ‘The Piano Man’, which we had to use our 5 senses to help us.
This week was ‘Book week’! For this, we designed Roald Dahl related props, heard stories over the tanoy system from Mrs Hollands, Miss Noble & Mr Brice. We then voted for our favourite one and ‘Shark in the Park’ won! We also watch a ‘Live Author’s Show’ and engaged in a whole school ‘Book week’ assembly.
We had our first Mandarin lesson this week, where we learned about China and the Mandarin word for panda!
We also had our final Tobacco Education workshop, which we have very much enjoyed.
Yesterday, we had a Science Teacher and 3 former Williamston pupils from JYHS visit and deliver a Science lesson to us! Very exciting!
We’re looking forward to another exciting week next week!
Here is the Term 2 homework grid for P7. Please feel free to post any questions on this page and lets help and support each other with learning at home! It would also be great to see any photographs of you completing activities too. 🙂
Today most of the girls are at ‘Active Girls Day Festival’ at James Young High School to take part in lots of different activities. The rest of P7 have been working on posters to let the school know about our Remembrance assembly on Friday 11th of November.
P7a have began a new Topic on WW2 and are really looking forward to learning more. P7b will be beginning to explore this more soon.
We have been exploring the Global Goals and focusing on Goal 5, Gender Equality. We finished analysing our surveys and calculated the gender ratio to see what percentage of men and woman have influential and decision making roles in our community. We reflected on what this means and how it fits in globally.
In addition to this we have been working on newspaper articles. We have been learning how to write a great newspaper article and focusing on writing in columns, in the third person, using past tense and writing catchy headlines.
A big focus for us in maths is addition and exploring different strategies to allow us to add up larger numbers. We are feeling more confident with this already!
We are really excited about our trip to The Risk Factory next Wednesday.
Both the P7 classes really enjoyed themselves this morning at JYHS. They engaged in a modern languages event called ‘The German Adventure’. There, they were able to work with S1 pupils and P7 pupils from another school.
