Primary 7 has started their new topic – the History of Edinburgh and we are hoping to go on a trip to Edinburgh this term. We have been reading the story of Greyfriar’s Bobby and from our reading we have learned about the poor sanitation of Old Edinburgh, how to make broth and what it is, and some Scots vocabulary. We found out about drovers and how they took animals to the Grassmarket in Edinburgh. We also read about pickpockets, pedlars and dealers who went there.
In French we have started to learn vocabulary for animals and we translated from French into English. We are also able to write a paragraph in French now using dictionaries to help us.
Our Maths lessons this week have focused on Time and we have started our Mathletics booklets to challenge us as well as reinforce our learning.
Everyone is reading to reach their AR target and many pupils are pursuing their Ross Rocks reading goals. Each of us has spent time on setting ourselves goals for the rest of the school year and for the future.
