P7 Learning Review week ending 8th March

P7 Blog By Lola

This week was World Book Day, and snapshot journal week. We were working on money in maths, we had to do questions on profit and loss and we did a quiz to find out if we are good at saving our money or not. We did some R.E on the fruits of the Holy Spirit, we wrote how we show them in our everyday day lives. For World Book Day we had a pyjama/dress down day, we also did speed datingwith books. Speed dating is when you walk round the room and compare your books with each other, the book I brought in was To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. We also had to draw a movie poster based on our books, it was a really fun activity.

Reflections on our P7 Evacuee Day

Evacuee day took place on Monday last week. This was the day when we came to school wearing clothes that evacuees would wear and we pretended to be evacuated by walking to the park and back. We had to keep our gas masks on us all day just incase Hitler sent his planes and bombed us.

We also did WW2 writing and comprehension about Winston Churchill and life for evacuees and we also acted out evacuee pictures using facial expressions and body language and emotions.

Lastly we acted out a scene from the book about evacuees, the book was called Carries War.

Introducing the Big Battery Hunt

Hello, our names are Hannah and Gabriela, and we are the Primary 7A Eco reps. We are taking part in something called the Duracell Big Battery Hunt and the whole school is involved.

Basically, the idea is to help recycle more batteries so they don’t end up in landfill. This is a real problem because the battery fluid can pollute the earth and affect animals and plants. Every class has received little boxes to go home., one per family, to collect old and used batteries. When the box is full, bring it into school and put the batteries into the box in reception.

Another good thing about this is that once we fill up our big battery box we are entered into a prize draw with all the other schools doing the hunt and we could win some awesome prizes including:

A 2 night trip to the Sustainability centre,

A 3 year subscription to MyMaths worth £1000

£2000 of classroom equipment

iPads

And lots of trophies and certificates.

It would be great if you could get involved and bring in some used batteries to go in the battery box and help fill it up so that we can help the planet, (and win some cool prizes) so bring in your batteries today to help!

Thank you!

Gabriela and Hannah P7A

P7 Tree of Knowledge Workshop Review

 

LI-We are learning to write a review of our workshop

SC-I can  write how I was feeling

I can organise my writing so it makes sense

The workshop was so so fun, at first I didn’t really want to do it but when we got startedI didn’t want to stop. My favourite thing was building a business because I always wanted to make a business. My groups business was a car called suction it was a car that when your driving it would suck up all the litter on the road.

After lunch we built stickle bricks and tried to sell it to Tony [one of the instructors] and if we needed more supplies we would buy them of Cameron[the other instructor].The thing my group found the most challenging was making money because it was really difficult to build the stickle bricks but we eventually got the hang of it.

Yesterday I had the best day ever! It was fantastic, we got to work in groups, we had to design a poster about a product that exists which was fub. We designed a backpack that can turn into a suitcase it comes with a yellow dotted waterbottle (Our group was called Yellow Dot)the workshop was called The Tree of Knowledge.

The next thing we did was to build stickle bricks, it was so hard at first, we got frustrated but that didn’t mean we gave up, we kept trying and we got it right after we sold one we figured how to build it. Soon we were shooting like a ROCKET! We also did a quiz we won first place and second for the poster which was amazing and first place for selling.

We communicated well, used different strategies focused and had fun. The people in my team were Gabriela, she was very good at building which was how we made so many, Ellie who checked it to see it was correct. Nina who also was building Skye who was buying, she was a big help, and me, I was the seller. I had to sell it to the customer, I was polite and I went back and forth everytime.

We had 2 leaders, Cameron and Tony, Tony said I was a zooming cheetah, we played 10 rounds at the end we won $320 fake money, we were so tired but the main thing was that we had so much fun. We hope to do it again!
