P7A Friendship Week

This week has been Friendship Week.

This week we have been learning in maths about how to add and subtract big decimal numbers. This week we have been learning about friendship and the quality of a friend and how to stand up to a bully. Then we learned about the beatitudes and that there are eight beatitudes. We made up our own we also drew a picture about the beatitude we wrote:

Kieran – blessed are those who are not wealthy but will be received in the kingdom of heaven.

Zak – blessed those that accept forgiveness and let God forgive them forever.

Naomi – Blessed are those who are lonely for they will be loved in the Kingdom of Heaven.

We also were learning about story writing as in comic books about bulling. You could do verbal bulling, physical bullying, social bulling and cyber bulling on book creator and one of the pages had to be from pic collage.

P7 and P1 research dinosaurs together

Primary 7 spent Monday afternoon working with their buddies in Primary 1 to learn about dinosaurs. The senior pupils prepared a short book creator about their favourite dinosaur and after sharing this with P1, the children worked well together to find out about another creature.

Working together using Book Creator, children shared their understanding of how to create a new page, add text and a picture.

Primary 7 pupils were amazed by the ability of their buddies to work independently after only a short amount of time and were delighted with the finished work.

P7 Learning Blog, week beginning 29 October 2018

This week we learned how to divide and multiply decimals.

We also made a book creator on dinosaurs for our p1 buddy’s, we had to put in videos, facts, pictures and we tried to make it as interesting as we could, some of us put in educational videos and some put in some songs about our dinosaur. Then we showed it to our buddy’s and they loved them!

In writing we were doing creative monsters stories and we based it on the quest.

In art we were doing skeletons based on the day of the dead which goes on for 3 days.

P7 Learning Blog, week beginning 29th October

This week we done loads of fun and exciting things. For example we got to go to Holyrood High school, When we were there we got to go around a hall with a group of pupils you know but also some from other schools and got to hear about peoples jobs. It was very interesting and fun, It has gave us loads of enjoyable jobs to choose from. Another thing we done this week was we got our flu sprays and at first we all weren’t so excited we were nervous, After we said it wasn’t so bad and we all agreed we wouldn’t regret getting it, The reason we get flu sprays and jabs is to help us not get the flu. Another fun thing we done was we got to get into pairs and choose a natural disaster like a volcano, flood, tsunami, earthquake, etc. After we chose one we would research on the worst flood or something, Finally we make a poster on the worst flood and we decorated and added loads of information. Another thing we done this week is Art and PE for art we got a piece of a painting and we found other people we had the same bit of painting and that was our group, Once we were in the groups we done a quiz and some of the questions were like When you look at this picture what do you see and that’s basically what we done for art. For PE we decided on our football league name the final decision on the name was Porty Premier League, we also came up with our team warmups. Another thing we done last week was we finished our research on rocks, its very interesting to find out we found out there are 3 different types of rocks the 3 are Sedimentary, Metamorphic and Igneous. Another fun thing we done was Football training we got into our teams and got a warmup to do for example dribbling and then we came up with a warm up featuring dribbling. Finally we done Natural Disasters Locations we found out that there are lines that move and patterns can change and that’s how disasters work. So to me I personally think last week was a very fun week.
