Scientific exploration has been the main focus for the P7s this week with a look at creating their own natural filtration systems. The P6s have helped but their time was split with Mrs Wehmeyer's P6 class preparing decorative art for the school hall display for Remembrance Day.
Massive progress has been made by all pupils in our maths topic - all pupils are more confident reading a compass rose and following directions. Next week we will be using a protractor to measure and for some, draw angles. Times table booklets are home with the pupils to help them 'reinforce at home' their tables - please sign off when you feel they have achieved bronze, silver and gold. Please return the booklet when all golds are achieved for a certificate to be awarded. All pupils have logged into Study ladder during class ICT sessions.
Pupils compared and contrasted Capitalism and Communism this week and the posters on SEESAW show their learning. They have home with them their China Topic Jotters as we will shift towards conflict next week in the lead up to Remembrance Sunday.
Our class novel is War horse by Michael Morpurgo. The movie is rated 12 years.Please let me know if you do not wish your child to watch it as we hope to do so once we have read the book.
Every week I am impressed by P6/7. As a class they are a really supportive and encouraging team. This week's social target winner was Aiden Young. All the pupils are demonstrating school values and it is great to see them in school uniform.
Have a safe and relaxing weekend.
