P7 Info W/B Monday 7th October 2019

Hi all,

Info for this week:

MondayMusic/Choir

  • Golf (for a group )

Tuesday PE

WednesdayPE

  • Lunchtime Drawing Club

Thursday –     Rugby

  • Parent/Pupil/Teacher Learning trios – child must attend.

Friday – School finishes at 12:25 pm for the October break. Pupils resume Wednesday 23rd October.

Independent Study Task – This week, the maths focus is on volume of liquids. There will be a double sided sheet sent home on Monday to be returned by this Friday please (11th).

Numeracy – We are forming ‘Times Teams’ in class – a buddy system to really focus on learning our times tables efficiently. This really is a priority as poor recall of times tables impacts on so many other areas of numeracy.

World War 2 Topic – On Friday 8th November, P7 will host the Remembrance Assembly. We will start rehearsals for it this week as we have the holiday and school camp coming up between now and then! If anyone has a family member who remembers  WW2 as a child and would like to share their stories with us, that would be incredible.  It would be fabulous to have 4-5 pupils read out family memories at the service, especially with it being 80 years since the start of the war.

Harvest donations – P1 and P2 are still looking for  larder items for their charity collection. Please send these in by Thursday if you can , thank you.

Card designs – The annual card design activity is upon us. Children will design a card at school and bring it home for you to view and order a set of cards if you wish. This is a great fundraiser for our school.

School Camp – I have no new information at this moment, regarding dorms etc but will let folks know as soon as I do. There are just over 3 weeks until we go to school camp so remember to prepare what is required from the camp kit list.

Thanks for your support,

Miss S Brunt

 

 

 

P7 Info W/B 30th September 2019

Hi all,

Info for this week:

MondayMusic/Choir

  • Golf (for a group )

Tuesday PE

WednesdayPE

  • Lunchtime Drawing Club

Thursday –     Rugby

Friday – P6 and P7 Rugby Festival; permission slips needed back in ASAP. This is for the whole class.

Independent Study Task – Apologies for no task sent home last week but we were having technical issues with printers and photocopiers! Fingers crossed, normal service resumes this week. A maths task will be sent home on Wednesday, even if the children have to write the task down themselves, like the old days! I will also put a challenge on Sumdog.

World War 2 Topic – This week, P7 will begin to study the history surrounding WW11. If anyone has any photos, memorabilia, artefacts, books or anything relating to WW11 that can be brought in, that would be most helpful. All items will be carefully looked after!

If anyone has a family member who remembers the war as a child and would like to share their stories with us, that would be incredible. My mum has written her memoirs from being a young child in the war years and I’ll share these with the class.

Harvest Appeal – P1 and P2 are hosting the Harvest Assembly soon and have asked for donations of larder items and toiletries to be sent in ASAP. If you have anything you’d like to donate, that would be super. The collected items are divided up and gifted to Women’s Aid.

Water bottles – Can all children come to school with a filled water bottle please. Children are turning up with empty bottles and asking to go to the water fountain in the dining hall to refill. This is causing delays in the morning and can be very disruptive and detrimental to our precious ‘learning minutes’.

Thanks for your support,

Miss S Brunt

 

 

 

Head lice

Hi all,

It’s that time of year again where head lice makes an appearance! Could I ask that parents are aware of this and are checking their child’s hair if they suspect their child has them.

Please ensure it is treated at home until all head lice have cleared to prevent them from spreading. The best time to check for head lice is when your child’s hair is wet and by using a fine nit comb.

Thank you!

Hi all,

Congratulations to our new House Captains! Everyone who participated in this process  should be immensely proud of themselves as it is no mean feat, making a speech in front of a large audience. However, to those not chosen on this occasion, there are many other fun roles to be given out in P7 so hopefully, everyone will get a job that suits them.

House Captains-

Dryden = FrC and CK.

Gladhouse =  TJM and ZM.

Edgelaw = LD and WL.

Events this week:

This week is very busy with 3 trips out. We realise this is a lot but each trip should be extremely worthwhile. It won’t happen like this very often.

Monday – Music and Choir

TuesdayPE with Mrs Duncan

  • Trip to Lasswade HS for an event (pm) We could be slightly late back.

WednesdayRISK FACTORY (am) Children need a packed lunch please.

  • New Independent Study task sent home (maths/numeracy)
