This week in P7 we are having an intensive revision week where we will be doing a lot of mental maths to consolidate square numbers, division, times tables, problem solving etc. Mrs Caldwell has delayed her test until next Monday so pupils have an extra week to revise the fractions, decimals and Percentages tables they have been working on. They will be expected to know the fraction, decimal and related percentages (e.g. 50%, 0.5, 1/2)
Pupils all have reading homework but there is no other homework because I have given out a choice of Burns poems for them to choose one to recite on 30/1/18. I gave them 16 minutes to learn 1 verse and most were successful – this means they have ample time to learn the whole poem if they use time wisely. (Ae fond kiss, Address to the Deil or Adddress to the toothache – some have challenged themselves to learn Tan O Shanter)
In Scots week we have been looking at Scotland’s landscape, natural disasters and plate tectonics.
DATES FOR DIARY
Now that it is 2018 I have a few dates for you (some parents and pupils have been asking me)
26th June – P7 night in school, usually a DVD and pizza
27th June – P7 Leavers Assembly – Afternoon
28th June – P7 DAY out (ORGANISED BY P7 PARENTS, Previously I have assisted by giving out surveys a parent has made which gives pupils a choice for a day out – often discussed by parents via class facebook, the school can also get costs for buses. Parent council allocated £15 per pupil for this FULL day to include outing and food)
29th Last day of term – previously parents have organised a piper to be outside the classroom as they leave – photo opportunity etc.
Last year I made an autograph book with the class which they loved, they were about £4 each so this may be something we do again
