This week in P7…
On Monday we wrote our imaginative stories about a lost sword. We all tried very hard.
On Tuesday we met our new hometeams. It was very fun and it was noisy. We made shields and put our team names on it with our names.
On Wednesday we had music with Mrs Mailer. We were practising our rhythms using a video on youtube. Then we had Ms Ferguson. Now, we have Ms Ferguson on Wednesdays. We were converting 24 hour to 12 hour time. Then after lunch we had Miss McKay again and we did some ICT. We made fact files about Flora MacDonald. Flora MacDonald helped Bonnie Prince Charlie flee from Scotland.
On Thursday we did PE with Miss Gordon. We did some four square and practised volleyball. It was very fun and enjoyable.
On Friday we did French with Mrs Ballantyne. We were learning school subjects in french!

P7 have had a tiring week back at school because it has been their first full week in almost 2 months!
The most exciting part of the week was when we met our P1 buddies because we weren’t sure if we would get them or not (they’re so cute as well).
We made cards for them and went outside to read a book that we all chose for them. We went in the sunshine and it was lovely.
We started planning our learning about the Jacobites which is our new topic for the term. We learned about how it started and some of the battles.
In Art this week we were doing our self-portraits which included shape, shading and colouring.
The thing that we are most excited about is the reading groups because it has been a very long time since the last time we did them and we might have new ones!

We are learning about solubility. We had to make a prediction then got different materials and put them into water to see id they dissolved or were insoluble. (LB, VG)

Division is the opposite of times tables. You can also use them in fact families. For example: 3 x 4 = 12. 12 / 3 = 4 and 12 / 4 = 3. Other strategies are grouping, sharing, number line and inverse! (SR, OM, LS)
We measured time using a calendar. The calendar has the first letter of the days of the week. We found and circled special days of the year. (VG, LB, MP)
We made a friendship tree to show how you know if someone is a friend or not. We also played a friendship game. There were two of the same objects in a bag, you pulled on out and then find the person that has the same object. Then you had to find something you had in common. (SW, HW, NG)
In P.E. we were throwing hoops to see who can throw them the furthest. We were skipping and running too and we were doing two-to-two jumps ten times! We have been working on our strength! (IP, ES, SC)
