Here’s a newsletter from Primary 7 about their Scotland Showcase.
Primary 7 pupils have been involved in working with outdoor learning staff for ‘Natural Connections’. They braved the snowy conditions to spend a day orienteering with Mr Keane. The term was rounded of by a great night at the Primary 7 Christmas party. They were joined by the one and only ‘DJ Frizzell’ and the children worked up an appetite with lots of Scottish and disco dancing and enjoyed a buffet of take away pizza afterwards. This term Primary 7 are focussing on their ‘Scotland in the Future’ topic and they are looking forward to presenting at the Lasswade Primary School Scot’s Showcase in February.
P7 recently took a trip out to Frankie and Bennys read all about how they got on.
On Wednesday 13th October 2010, Primary 7 invited family and friends into their classroom to involve them in their Active Learning Challenge.
The children and the adults were involved in a line-up and they were put into random groups. They had the opportunity to get their ‘Voice on the Table’ and everyone was allocated a role.
Each group brainstormed their ideas on how to create an ‘interactive, stand-alone’ model which showed all their knowledge about the rainforest.
The groups chose their materials and began to create their models together.
The groups were given 1 hour to complete their models and then they were displayed for everyone to evaluate.
The groups were involved in a carousel to visit each model and give feedback on how informative and interactive they were. Each model was assessed against the Success Criteria which was given at the beginning of the challenge.
The afternoon was extremely successful and the feedback from our parent visitors was very positive.
We are writing to ask if the girls football team could please get a coach because it is unfair that other schools are getting to go to girls football tournaments and fundraiser football when we are not. We could maybe go up to the astro and practice ourselves because practice makes perfect! Please, please, please! Try and get us a coach because this is our last year of school and we really want to play football!!
