Dear P7 Parents,

Virgin £5 challenge.
In class we have been working on enterprise and teamwork skills and hope to have an enterprise week next month. In that week pupils will take part in the £5 challenge from Virgin Money where they will work in small groups on a variety of activities to try and make £5 grow.
Pupils have thought about various ways they could use their £5 to make more profit, this week they have thought about possible issues that may arise and how they may prevent these. Soon, pupils will be asked to present their ideas to Mrs Donnelly – they should know their plan, costing, how they will prevent problems, possible profits and perhaps even have a prototype. It will also be important that they can answer questions about their venture. This week, as part of their homework, they are being asked to talk to people at home about their ideas and put their presentation together. I look forward to hear about all of their exciting ideas very soon. Profits made will go towards drama props and art materials for our Leavers’ assembly.
We are working our way through transition tests in Numeracy this week. High School requires pupils to get 60% or less in their tests so that they can see where their gaps are and address these first. It does seem a bit strange that pupils are not expected to get a higher mark and some cannot get their head around it. Please assure your child that they have all worked very hard this year and these tests are a mere snapshot of their learning.
Last year we made small autograph/year books in P7 and they cost £6-7. I have a larger book template and the class have all said they really like these and would like the opportunity to make them. I have a lot of photographs of them over the years so this would make a lovely keepsake. The cost would be £8.50, please can pupils bring this in ASAP. As part of our Leavers’ events I am asking if I could get any photos of pupils starting P1 (as well as other years), Photos of them doing something they are proud of and if possible a copy of the P1 class photo. I will scan any photos and return them to you once I have – please put child’s name on the back of each photo. Alternatively please email me anything you think would work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Such a busy term, I will try to keep the website updated as much as possible.
