P7 Rocket Racoons Friday update

Wow! What a quick week we’ve had in P7R with lots going on.

Literacy: This week we were creating book adverts for our favourite books. We thought about what made them enjoyable and wrote about this for our peers. We are going to display these in the class and if we finish a book we can read our classmates recommendations. This week we thought about reading comprehension in P7, what that might look like and practiced with a short clip discussing inferences.

Mathematics: We have been introducing our number of the day in P7. Each day there will be a new number for us to tackle some maths questions with. This week we also tried some maths questions to work out what we know, what we need to revise and what we need to learn.

Other curriculum areas:

In P.E we started our unit of Hockey. We talked about the skills we would need to be successful at moving the ball and worked with our teammates to complete obstacles.

This week we choose our class name and created a display for this. See the pictures below! We also worked on our class charter display.

Health and Well-being: we have been discussing our emotions, how our body reacts to these and how we can make ourselves feel better when we feel emotions that make us feel negative. We displayed these in the class so we can use them all year.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

P7R Friday Update

Welcome to P7R’s Friday blog!

This week in P7R we have had an exciting return to school. Tray’s have been allocated, class jobs have been decided and the infamous P7 hoodies have been distributed!

This week we have been getting to know our new class. The class have been taking part in team building and get to know you activities both indoors and outdoors this week. We created super whole class stories in our outdoor area this week and also took on a maths challenge where we had to work with our partners to solves mental maths questions.

This week we have discussed our school ethos of Safe, Respected and Ready. We worked in groups to think about what this looks like in real life and started to think about how to present this on our class charter.

This week we have also been discussing things we are both excited and worried about as we return to school and enter P7.

Things to note:

From Monday we will have 30 minutes a day of ERIC (everyone reading in class) time. The children have been asked to bring in a book to read during this time. There are some books in our class library for those who don’t have a book they would like to bring in from home. School reading books will be given in the next few weeks and ERIC time can be used to read either their school book or personal book.

P.E – Our P.E day’s will be on Tuesday and Thursday next week. This may change depending on the P.E timetable but will be on Tuesday and Thursday next week.

Have a lovely weekend!

Literacy – This week our friend Mr Ed was with us again, practicing adding ed to magic e words. We created posters with our learning partners to show our learning. We also starting thinking about the summer and what items we would take to the beach. We wrote a list and used commas in our sentences.

Numeracy – In maths and numeracy we had a recap of subtraction strategies and used our number block friends to help us use our ‘what’s the difference’ strategy. When we found the difference we got to say ‘that’s the difference’!

Other curricular areas: We had our welcome back to school party this week where we played some fun party games and practiced our sharing and turn taking skills. During outdoor learning we have been revising counting in 5’s. This week we have also been doing some whole class reading and our story ‘Rosie’s hat’ inspired us to create front covers and even think about writing a follow up book!

Next week: As we wrap up for the term we will be doing some different activities next week. If your child would like to bring in an item for show and tell next week they can. Please don’t bring anything valuable to school.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Other curricular areas: We were learning about the artist Claude Monet this week and P2W are excited to try and replicate some of his art work in the coming weeks. We also had outdoor loose parts play this week where we got to be very creative…lots of mud pies and dens! To celebrate filling our class pompom jar for our targets of ‘being kind to others, showing good listening and being respectful to resources’ we had a movie morning on Friday. We also created some new targets for the rest of term.

Our new class targets:

Tremendous toilet manners

Cool carpet sitters

Excellent example setters

Ask your child what these involve!

Reading: Next week we will be having a look at some non-fiction books. Your child’s reading book next week will therefore be non-fiction. This will correlate with their Oxford Reading tree stage.

Have a lovely long weekend.
