P7C week beginning 21.2.22

We have had a busy first week back after the holidays with lots of opportunities to develop our skills for learning, life and work.

In maths, we were attempting to break codes using ciphers used during WW2.

We had loose parts today where we had a whole class team challenge to get water from one side of the playground to the other without walking it across.

We have also been learning:

Have a lovely weekend!

Well done to Carys and Pradyun who are our class entries into Buckstone’s Got Talent!

As part of Scottish Week and our focus on poetry, the class are learning a poem to perform for the class. The focus is on performance skills rather than learning the whole poem so I have said to the class I’d rather they performed a little bit very well rather than trying to learn all of a Burns poem.

A wee reminder, any Buckstone’s Got Talent entries need to be uploaded to the class Teams for Monday. We will watch and vote for our class entry at some point next week.

We have had a very busy first full week back in school. For lots of us the highlight was starting our World War 2 topic. We thought about what we knew already and then explored some historical artefacts…

P7C week beginning, 6.1.22

Welcome back and Happy New year! I hope everyone had a relaxing and restful holiday!

Yesterday and today we have been learning:

We learnt the order of operations using BODMAS. BODMAS means brackets, orders, division, multiplication, addition and subtraction. If you have a division and a multiplication in the same sum, you go left to right. It’s the same for addition and subtraction. 

We learnt a new maths game called PIG (ask us how to play it!). We played maths games like jenga, risky 6 and kaboom. 

We done poem writing in literacy. We read some different poems. We thought about what we know already about different types of poems, and had a go at writing our own.

We set up new literature circles books. 

We did teamwork and democracy when we voted and debated on our point system and how to spend a class £30. 

Have a lovely weekend

A couple of notices:

Our class party is on Tuesday but we also have bikeability that day so please can the children come wearing clothing suitable for bikeability and bring a change of clothes for the party if they wish.

We will be having a Christmas movie day on Wednesday 15th December where the children can bring in a snack if they wish to. Please can this snack be treat size.

Christmas Jumper day is Friday 10th December for ‘Save the Children’. If you wish to donate, you can do so via ParentPay. P6 are also organising their charity appeal for Friday 10th December. If you are able to, they are asking for donations of toys for Mission Christmas. Donations can be dropped off before school on Friday 10th and should be new and unwrapped.

Our highlight this week was creating our Christmas window display:

In maths, we were learning to measure angles this week.
