P7 Learning Blog – Week Beginning 30th August 2021

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 Learning Blog – Week Beginning 23.8.21

vikingshieldP7 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!

School Improvement Plan 2020-2021

ELPS SIP 2021 Sep

Initially our top priority is happy and settled children – and the children have done themselves proud returning to school with really positive attitudes and ready to learn after being away for so long.

This year our school improvement plan has a strong focus on Literacy as a key area we wish to review and improve. There are also other areas of school development that we have carried on from last year.

If you believe you can help support any area of development in any way , please so get in touch !

Primary 6 Timetable – Week Beginning 27th April

Happy Monday P6,

Please find below your timetable for the week. You will see each day posted on our Google Classroom. This does not have to be followed exactly…make it work for you. If you do want some structure to help motivate you then this will be helpful.

Remember to have screen breaks, get outside lots (whilst it is still sunny) and talk about how you’re feeling. I am here for you too…just send me an email if you want a chat.

Our Learning Hero this week is Super Collaborative. This is a tricky one when we are working at home but there are people in your house to collaborate with. It might be you are helping a younger sibling, or an older sibling is working with you? You might be helping mum or dad with things at home…let me know…get mums and dads to email me! :0)

Have an enjoyable week. I am particularly excited about International Day of Dance on Wednesday.

Miss McKay

Week Beginning Monday 27th April
