Welcome to Primary 7!
The boys and girls have done a great job at settling into their new class. We have had a busy few weeks. Here is what we have been learning:
In literacy, we have been writing letters to our future selves as part of a time capsule. We plan to open these at the end of Primary 7. We have also been linking our writing to our contexts of learning, “We Belong”. We have also been linking our literacy lessons to “The Boy at the back of the class”, a class novel linked to our IDL. We enjoy taking some time each day to read some of our accelerated reader books.
We are currently working through our whole number topic. In the coming weeks, we will be covering estimating and rounding, place value and negative numbers. We will also be doing some revision on multiplication and division strategies.
Health and wellbeing
We are delighted to be working with Harry in RADS every Monday, focusing on speed and agility. We also have been learning about fitness in PE. We will also be having a block of lessons on Hockey and Tennis this term.
We have already had our first Active Adventure day of the year – superhero themed.
We have also created our class charter linked to the UNCRC.
Things to look forward to:
On Friday, 29th of September, we will be hosting a Macmillan coffee morning with our Primary 1 buddies. We hope to raise money for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. More information to follow.
