P7 Newsletter April – June 2017

Please click on the link for the latest newsletter:

P7 APRIL – JUNE 2017 Newsletter

As you will see, we are looking forward to a very busy and exciting term ahead!

We have tried to include as many dates and details as we can at the moment.  EVERY child in P7 has been given a paper copy of this newsletter as we thought it would be useful to stick up on the fridge!  If you are on the e-mail list, you will also receive an electronic copy.

If you have any questions, please speak to your child’s class teacher or Miss Eeles.

P7 Update – March 2017

P7 Update – March 2017

The Risk Factory
P7 pupils will be visiting The Risk Factory after the Easter holidays. A letter will come out with more details on the first day back. The cost of the trip is £4 per pupil.

Mathletics
Please encourage your child to check their Mathletics profile for regular challenges set by the class teacher. A variety of maths revision games can also be found on the P7 Blog.

P7 Profiles
As P7 pupils prepare to move from primary to secondary school they add to their personal profile throughout the year. All pupils know how to access and edit their profile.

We allocate ICT sessions in school throughout the year to work on P7 profiles but pupils should work on it at home independently and think of it as on-going homework. Please let the class teacher know if you do not have internet access at home as we run a weekly lunch time profile lunch club every Monday.

P7 Transition
We will be sending a newsletter home on Friday 21st April with lots of P7 transition dates & information about the last term.

Cinderella Performance

P7 performed their finished ‘Cinderella’ play this week with Madame Scott using a French script. They’ve all had a lot of fun!

P7 Plankton Art Project

Information taken from the ‘North Lights Art’ Website: https://northlightarts.org.uk/2016/12/plankton-project-dunbar-primary-school/

North Light Arts have just completed five amazing days in Dunbar Primary School in connection with Donald Urqhart’s public art work for The Battery on Dunbar Harbour.

The two incredible artists Linda Greig and Anna Davis from Dunbar worked with the classes for a full day, creatively helping the students learn about and interpret the life of plankton. Linda had sourced some water from the harbour that had tiny specimens of the species of plankton that can be found in the waters around Dunbar.

The students then studied the structure of different plankton through observational drawing and later by inventing and naming their own plankton. Traces were then made to take their drawings into mono printing and screen printing with Anna. The results were so good they will be displayed in the Community Room of Dunbar Town House at the same time as Donald’s exhibition is being held here in March 2017.

P7 French Play

P7 performed scenes from ‘Cinderella’ this week with Madame Scott using a French script. We got some fantastique photos!
