Friday 23rd March

Everyone is looking very relaxed in P7 today in their pyjamas and red noses for Red Nose Day!

This week in P7 we have enjoyed working on our light and shadow presentations. We have drawn out storyboards and practised how we will create the shapes and we have also chosen music to accompany our performances. Next week we will have a go at performing them. We looked at some illusions that use light and dark to show 2 images in one. We have also been  listening to everyone’s light homework.

We enjoyed making foil characters and using a torch to create and draw the shadow.

We liked making our tinfoil men and also looking at the illusions. By Taylor D, Carys and Zoe

In numeracy we have created some amazing fractions, decimals and percentages games which were fun to make and play.

P7 Science at Knox

We had a fantastic afternoon at Knox in the science lab! We were experimenting with light.

We tested out how to reflect beams of light and also how to split light using a prism. Some people even managed to reflect and split light in one go!

Huge thanks to Mr Easton for the afternoon and also to Rorie’s mum and Louisa’s mum for coming with us.

Friday 17th March

Another busy week in P7! We created and acted out our own playscripts this week. Congratulations to the Cross Country team who put in an amazing performance and won the small school competition.

We had a great afternoon at Knox yesterday. We enjoyed using the light equipment in the science lab to carry out experiments into how light travels, white light, the colour spectrum, how to reflect light and how light behaves when it travels through different shaped prisms.

10th March 2017

It’s been another fantastic week in P7. Everyone has been very busy!

At the start of the week the class calculated the area of triangles in maths and did some coding with P2 in ICT.

In our writing work this week we continued with playscript writing. We used a scene from The Simpsons as a stimulus for our playscripts.

In our topic work we have started ‘Lights, Camera, Action’. We are looking at different aspects of light. Next week we will get to carry out lots of light experiments during our science afternoon at Knox. This week we watched some performances by ‘Attraction’ and considered how they create their amazing effects. We also used torches and the projector to start to create some silhouette artwork.
