P7 Home Learning W/B 27th April

Primary 7 are using Microsoft Teams to communicate with their teachers and other pupils during this challenge time of home learning. They have access to Office 365 and OneDrive, and have been sharing their learning using the school iPad provided.

This week we have a new home learning grid for pupils. We encourage our P7s to plan their week at a level and pace which suits each family situation. We are aiming for 2/3 tasks a day where possible. If parents need to get in touch with class teachers, please eMail the school admin account on admin@st.johns.edin.sch.uk

P7 Home Learning – Big Talking

In Primary 7, we will be introducing ‘Big Talking’ to support our writing in class.

This term we are focusing on imaginative writing and functional writing. On a Tuesday, we will discuss a prompt for their writing which might be an image, question or an animation clip. We have included these in this booklet along with discussion points to help your child prepare for their writing lesson on a Thursday.

These discussion points are designed to be part of a discussion which can be easily worked into your family routine. Your child may wish to make notes of their ideas in their home learning jotter and bring these to class.

Big Talking T2 -Revised February

P7 Learning Blog – 17th January

The P7s have had a fun week directing their learning about America. We have compared some of our similarities and differences with Scotland, the sheer size and different time zones in the USA surprised many of us! We looked into how the ’13 Colonies became 13 States’ and learned some new vocabulary such as Congress, amendment and constitution!

We met our new Italian teacher, Valentina, and had a visit from Edinburgh University and Fife College to deliver STEM activities. Mrs Millar (the physicist) was very passionate telling us about her job working with very big and very small numbers. We learned about aerodynamics in our rocket launching lesson and about the power to move objects using positive and negative charge.20200116_13552620200116_14581320200116_14482120200116_144535



Spelling Home Learning Booklet – Term 2

P7 are trying to be more environmentally friendly and thinking of different ways to cut down the volume of paper we use in school. As a result, our home learning booklets are going to be online from this term as a trial.

Please find attached the spelling booklet for P7 for term 2. Tasks are to be completed and signed as normal in pupil home learning jotters. Thank you for your continued support.
