P6/7 continue to demonstrate their determination to learn and work together. Our writing focus on characters, setting and figurative language has seen the pupils create stories based in China. Really delightful short stories that we hope to send home as a book of short stories for the end of term. I feel so proud of their achievements!
I have shown the pupils how to log in to Glow and to present their research using Microsoft Sway. Some children had experience of this software but for most it was brand new learning and after listening really carefully they began to create their own presentations on famous Chinese Landmarks which we will share on SEESAW shortly. I really like their work and am sure you will too!
Last week the school Jeans for Genes fundraiser pocketed £340 for the charity and now its P67 & P7 turn to take the lead and raise money for MacMillan Cancer Research. Our JLT prepared and presented at the reconnector sessions. Well done and we look forward to the fun day on Thursday 8th Oct (£1 to dress down and play some games in the hall) pupils will be organising and running this event.
We have been immersed in Spanish this term so hopefully your child will be feeling more confident with greetings, days of the week/months of the year, numbers and colours. We will continue to develop our language skills throughout the session.
Autumn is finally here and winter coats are out - the horse chestnut trees are proving popular especially the one beside the crematorium and we had a wee bit of fun with seasonal crafts - hope you got your exclusive conker creation!
In our number work we have looked at mental and written addition strategies and will follow onto subtraction shortly.
Congratulations to Maya Cargill our social target winner this week!
Have a lovely long and restful weekend
See you Monday!
Mrs Watt & P6/7
