Primary 7a – 30/9/16

Another busy week!

‘Terrific Tuesdays’ started! Thank you to all the parents who attended and were able to see a glimpse of some of the learning that takes place in our class. We’re looking forward to ‘iSpend’ next Tuesday 4th October.

Some of us attended an athletic’s festival with Miss Brown and really enjoyed ourselves!

In our topic, ‘Citizen 7’, we were continuing to look at democracy and dictatorship. Next week, we’ll be looking at debating skills and be working in groups with P7b to have further develop our debating skills.

We really enjoyed our McMillan coffee morning  and enjoyed wearing green! We look forward to seeing the finished calendar!

Next week, we have lots going on! ‘iSpend’, preparations for Dalguise camp, National Poetry Day, a modern languages transition event at JYHS and some of us will be attending a cross country event too!

P7a – 23.9.16

It’s been a short week after our September weekend but we still managed to fit in some exciting things!


In P.E this week with Mr Muldoon we did circuit training – We did exercises such as, planks, hula hoops, burpees, star jumps, press ups and cycle supreme! We feel very fit now!


With Ms MacDonald, we worked on ‘Global goals’ –  ‘The World’s largest lesson’! We worked on trying to recycle more, lesson pollution and looked at Malala Yousafzai  and how she had the confidence to write her book/speeches about girls’ education.


Today was a very important and exciting day for Primary 7, yet again! Today we watched presentations from our House Captain candidates! We will find out on Monday who our new Captains will be and will update our blog/Twitter with this news!


Come back next week for an update on our learning!

They all feel very excited and honoured about their new roles!


P7a & P7b are all working together now on their ‘House Captain’ campaigns, where the voting process will continue this Friday morning and we will be able to announce who our new House Captains will be!


We have also been getting organised for our school camp – PGL Dalguise. Rooms have now been sorted and kit lists given out! Exciting times! The countdown has begun!


In writing this week, we have been learning how to write a persuasive letter, focusing on persuasive language and layout.

In maths, we have been focusing on place value and rounding. We really enjoyed using Yammer last week in our maths’ work.
