This week, our class have been learning how to add, subtract and multiply fractions with like and unlike denominators. Lots of thinking required! Next week, we will link this knowledge to decimals and percentages.
Our writing jotters are packed full of stunning examples of pupil work and this week I received several persuasive letters for a 3 day weekend, dress down day and afternoon treat. Our Newspaper Articles on WW2 bombing, Evacuation, Rationing and other aspects will be available on SEESAW soon.
Our WW2 Air Raid Shelter models are underway and pupils will be working in their Science groups to prepare and present on an area of their WW2 research.
Monday we will be making bread/ pizza bread rolls using a WW2 recipe and as a special reward afternoon we will be ordering in some cheese pizzas. If you wish your child to opt out please contact the school office.
Tuesday, our RME lesson will explore Lent/ Shrove Tuesday/ Ash Wednesday. The school lunch dessert is pancakes and we hope to have a few extra to try in class - pupils are keen to bring in their own toppings and I am ok with this as long as its not too messy and doesn't include nuts.
Wednesday morning, P7a have the opportunity to participate in a Judo Taster Session - so please remember indoor kit. Wednesday afternoon, we have invited Ewan Cootes to speak to the class on his achievements being selected to play for Scotland in the Youth World Ten Pin Bowling Championships in Peru. A great opportunity for the children to have a question and answer session.
We are currently reading Chapter 5 in our class novel 'Goodnight Mr Tom'. Weekly reading lessons include a taught lesson where I focus teaching an aspect of reading - last week we looked at inferring information from the text - this week we have looked at the importance of punctuation when reading and how we change our voice/pause etc for effect. The pupils also complete an independent reading comprehension card weekly. With World Book Day fast approaching, I am keen to hear about the books P7a are reading at home and have asked the children to look out their favourite books to show and share in class on Thursday 5th March.
Friday will come around fast I'm sure - this week seemed to zip by! I was absolutely delighted with P7's performance at the Festival of Dance. Quite possibly thought my heart would burst, I felt so proud watching all the children put in 100%. I have approved the performance to SEESAW so please head over to the P7a page and watch the children on stage in the spotlight! Exactly where they deserve to be! #proudteacher
Thank you for a brilliant week - Have a fantastic weekend!
