A fantastic result at the Dundee Science Centre Primary and Secondary STEM Event - 2 prizes awarded to our P7 team for winning the Electric Lorry Challenge and the best Primary School Team participating in the challenges that morning. Well done to our pupils and a massive thank you to Mrs Smithson, Mr Ritchie, and Mrs MacKintosh for organising!
Our pupils have all worked hard creating their special Portraits and Poetry - these are home with them today accompanied by some beautiful flowers - thank you to Karen@Rosyth Hub for helping with this.
In their number work pupils have been learning about measuring angles and triangle properties and angle turns. Pupils are encouraged to use study ladder and Sumdog to keep their skills fresh over the next two weeks before the Easter holidays.
We have finished Goodnight Mr Tom and begun our next class novel The ClockWork Sparrow. The school has issued home learning packs and a copy of this book is on loan in the packs today to allow pupils to read throughout the closure period.
In health we examined food labels and discussed how to be healthy by burning off some of the calories we eat. PE Basketball = sweat!
ICT has been a major focus this week as following the announcement schools to close for the short term. P7a have all checked their SEESAW and GLOW logins work. They have study ladder and Sumdog set up to use and have prepared well for the next two weeks.
Our Social Target to make positive choices has been achieved by everyone this week and we have focused on positive thinking for the days ahead.
I am so proud of our P7 cohort. We held the class show auditions today and everyone brought 100%. Lots of laughter and smiles and a really happy vibe in the hall which I hope the attached photo reflects.
I would like to thank the children for all their hard work. Their home learning packs are with them tonight as we face uncertain times. We hope that things will return to normal quickly and look forward to being back in the school together.
I wish you all a safe and healthy two week and a fantastic Easter Break when it comes.
