This week in P7b

Our week has been jam packed and fun!

We have chosen the topic of Film making and movies this term – we are really excited to find out how to create a film. We have started to create some animations on the Chrome Books. We took lots of photos of images, items, gradually making little changes to them. Miss Christie was really impressed with all the creative ideas from everyone. We had to take 12 to make 1 second of an animation. We then adapted the speed of moving through the photos to create the animations. We have saved them on our google classrooms (ask us to show you at home!)

“Some of the animations we created looked cool and amazing!” Amber & Ebony.

On Thursday we visited MGS – we got to go to the science department. We had the job of working out a crime that had been committed. To do this we had to do lots of forensic experiments. Some of the experiments we did included using a Bunsen burner and different types of chemicals. It was really interesting and fun!Some of the experiments could have been dangerous if we did not behave in a safe way.  We wore safety goggles to protect our eyes and if we had long hair we had to tie it back.

We hope to have another amazing week next week!

Have a good weekend everyone!

P7B 🙂


P7B Highlights this week!

We have had a fun week in P7b!

Some of the highlights are;

“High jump in PE – We all tried our very best! It was really fun.” –  Abbie

“We have learnt how to calculate distance, speed and time. It is easy when we use the triangle.” Ava

“We have been looking at persuasive writing. We are trying to persuade the rest of the class to pick the topic we want to do after the holidays.” Abby

“I have enjoyed  persuading people to come to a holiday destination I have created. We got to do it on a chrome book, it was easy to edit this way. We all liked using them for our writing,  My destination was called ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ and I have used lots of persuasive techniques in my writing.” Hadyn

Have a great weekend!


Bridge Building in P7b

We have been exploring the design process this week through a bridge building challenge..

First we explored bridge structures and designs to help us create our own. Then we shared our individual designs and worked in teams to build a bridge that would be strong using a limited amount of resources and a budget.

It was a challenge, we had to really think about how we could design and build our bridge to make it strong.

We had to use our growth mindset to keep going! The team work was brilliant!

High fives were spotted and lots of encouragement was being given to our other team members.

Next week we are going to test them… Which group will be the WINNER?!

A busy week in P7b

We have has a busy week!

We took part in a Modern Languages transition event at Musselburgh Grammar School on Tuesday, it was great to meet new people and learn new languages such as Spanish and German and find out about some of the culture.

World Book day was fun, everyone put in lots of effort and looked great! Check out some of our costumes…

We have also been thinking about Global Warming and the impact it is having on our planet and linked this with our discursive writing! We have been challenged with our thinking with algebra in Numeracy too,  but are enjoying learning about it.
