Hello everyone, I hope that you are enjoying the snow.
I have made a whole school sumdog competition so please remember to log in – if you need help with your log in details then email me.
Remember your individual targets – where do you need to go? How will you get there?
Home learning – due Wednesday
Literacy – please remember your book reports and quiz that were due in on 1st. If you want to challenge yourself and consolidate learning we have done in class then write a short setting description of a snowy setting – remember our in-class success criteria (Using your senses, adjectives, adverbs, long and short sentences and no story/charactes e.g. The warm sun shone down on the turquoise water like freshly cleaned diamonds, the birds lazily perched on the tan branches while the sound of them gleefully singing danced in my ears. I felt at peace.” Type it on word and email me, share with me on GLOW or just write it and bring it in next week.
Maths/Numeracy – Have a go at this BEAST FROM THE EAST P7 Maths activity challenge – how many house points will you earn?

REMEMBER to keep sending my your fun in the snow, snow sculpture or snowy extreme reading photos. firstname.lastname@example.org
P7 DAY OUT.
An excited and keen parent first mentioned this in January and I could not believe that it was time to think about it so a pat on the back for planning ahead. She has volunteered time to help organise this and attend on the day. I have had a few more parents ask me about the day out and would suggest a wee team to go with the pupil ideas would work well.
Pupils discussed it with me and I posted the results on the page last week. As Time Capsule was the firm favourite I presumed people would look into this – I am happy to get the office to price a bus for the parent team while they organise prices for the trip and food.
Pupils are saying the Time Capsule is closed during the day – after a quick email they got back to me to say that for trips etc they can open at 10am, you just need to speak to them.
Paintballing was not first or second choice but I do have to mention that this, or similar activities, is not something Mrs Donnelly or I would be happy to have organised for their day out so this is not an option.
If Time Capsule is not an option I am happy to go back to the class and chat about other ideas (escape rooms, Blair Drummond plus BBQ, Picnic etc were also suggested after our discussion).
