Primary 7 – Term 1 News
It has been such a jam packed term for our Primary 7s. Here are some of the things we have got up to!:
Primary 1 buddies
We were so excited to meet our Primary 1 buddies. Each P7 pupil has been matched up with a P1 pupil. They’re job is to look out for their buddy and help them to settle in to St Peters school. It has been so lovely watching the friendships develop. We have also organised buddy catch ups in the garden, reading stories and baking with them to host our Macmillan coffee afternoon! We look forward to arranging more events in Term 2.
This term, our context for learning has been “Our Democratic world” with P7 focusing on the history of the voting system. We followed the voting procedures to have our own election day to vote for our pupil council representative. We registered to vote, created our own manifestos, filled out our ballot papers and took part in a count. We really enjoyed this experience.
We were delighted to add some leaves to our new “Wider achievement tree”. This is a celebrations of pupils achievements outside of school. We hope to add lots more leaves to the tree next term.
Active adventure day
As always, Active adventure day, was such good fun! The theme for our first day was “Sports”. We has sessions based on hockey, obstacle courses, golf and netball. We are already looking forward to the next one in November!
We were delighted to welcome parents back to school for P7’s class assembly – based on the story of creation. We loved performing to an audience and show casing our acting, singing and performing talents while teaching pupils about the story of creation! We were very proud of our great efforts and we look forward to seeing the other classes in the coming months!
P7 have been taking on lots of responsibilities as leaders within the school. Mrs Bain and Mr Sturrock had the very difficult job of choosing our houses captains for this year. We also have head boys and head girls and it has been great to see them putting their ideas into actions. Other roles P7’s have taken on include prefects, RADS leaders and bikeability. We also had some excellent readers at our Mass in St Mary’s Cathedral celebrating Mass with the other Catholic schools in the city.
It has been so lovely to welcome parents back to school this term including Meet the teacher, class assembly and macmillan coffee afternoon.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
