Day One

We have all arrived safe at Lagganlia, the journey was good and surprisingly very subdued. Dorms have been allocated and everyone is happy! Beds have been made and children have settled in this evening.

This afternoon activities took the form of various fun tasks around the site, weather was delightful, sun shinning and dry.

We enjoyed a delicious evening meal of corn in a cob and baked potatoes with a variety of delightful fillings.

Evening activity was a scatter quiz which allowed the children to learn some local area history whilst running around in the dark making good us of their torches. Winners will be announced tomorrow!

The remainder of the evening will involve some free time and then off to bed so we can recharge for a fun packed day two!!


First Full Week Back!

Our first week was full of fun learning!                                         Making a Difference

Our class charter for this year focuses on RRS, Ready, Respect and Safe and we have chosen the theme Route 66. All children should come to P7 ready to learn with a pencil, ruler and eraser. Making brochures to inform others about Route 66 was interesting and some fantastic facts are displayed.


We were learning to write a Biography, thinking about the features of someones life, writing in third person, chronological order, an interesting opener to captivate the reader, writing in paragraphs, and using quotes.


We have been revising whole number, thinking about measurement; cm, temperature, m and kg. Volume was tricky in parts but we will be practising!

We created board games that challenges addition and subtraction calculations.


Skills playing Basketball was the focus of our PE sessions, starting with throwing and passing. Please ensure children have a PE kit to change into. Thank You.

Expressive Arts

It is Equality week and during drama lessons we created videos which focused on discrimination.


Maths week begins on Monday 10th September so lots of fun activities to look forward too!!
