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?!

P7 visit Dynamic Earth

Both P7 classes visited Dynamic Earth today to support their IDL topic, Natural Disasters. Pinkie could be proud with the P7 pupils, as they showed great enthusiasm, knowledge and applied many skills in the tour and follow up workshop. The 3D rocket tour around the globe had most screaming with glee! (or maybe a bit of fear?)

There was even time for a quick trip to Holyrood Park to check out an extinct volcano, Parliament,  the palace and a few games out in the sunshine!

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.

 

 

 

Crazy Costume Day!

We had a brilliant turn out for crazy costume day yesterday! Thank you to everyone who took part!!

Everyone who dressed up looked FANTASTIC! There were lots of pyjamas, onesies, and crazy ideas – odd shoes, socks on hands, crazy hairstyles and lots more! The P7 fundraising group were blown away with the craziness and creativity, they certainly had a tough job judging around the classes… well done to all the winners!

Here is a few snaps of the creative and crazy outfits.

P7 Bake Sale – A massive thank you and congratulations!

The dining hall today had a real buzz about it and a delicious waft of coco powder as there was the cake competition run by the ‘Drama Lammas’ and the bake sale run by a number of groups and supported by the whole of the P7 year group!

Mrs Bonnar and our chef Jill had a very challenging task to choose a winner and runner ups! Congrats to those who caught the judges eyes, and you will get your prizes next week!

A massive thank you to all those who baked and donated! The feedback from the P7’s and teachers was fantastic and today would not have been the success it was without the generosity we saw across the school today.
