Learning in Term 4
This term for the first couple of weeks, we will finish off our topic on Asia. We will then move onto a WW1 topic, starting off with a visit to Stirling Castle for a workshop. We will learn about the causes of the war, some of the main people involved, what life was like as a soldier in the war and life at home during the war.
In maths, we will learn about the rule of BODMAS, relationship between time, distance and speed, shape and their properties, some aspects of measure, data handling and position, movement and angle.
In literacy we will develop our skills in functional writing, including reports, recounts, explanations etc. As part of our WW1 topic, we will read the novel Private Peaceful by Michael Murpurgo and also read some information texts related to WW1. We will do a group presentation and some debates as part of talking and listening.
In Health and Wellbeing, as we did not have time last term, we will continue learning about food miles and food waste. We will also do some learning on dealing with emotions as the children head to High School. The children will continue to work in their leadership groups and organise and lead different activities. For PE, we will improve our skills in athletics.
In music, we will continue to learn recorder and hope to learn some songs to play at the musical festival. We will also learn some songs for the Leavers' service.
We will continue building our vocabulary in French and German.
Primary 7 panto - Dick Whittington
Primary 7 have been practising for their panto since October last year and finally put on their 3 performances on Tuesday 31st January, Wednesday and Thursday 1st and 2nd February. The children were amazing and rose to the occasion. They have had many compliments about the show. Huge thanks to all the parents who supported children with lines, walking to the hall, helping with props and scenery, adjusting and making costumes and also to the volunteers on the night who helped with make up, tuck shop and bar, lighting, sound and being backstage. We couldn't have done it without you!
From the profits of the panto sales, bar, raffle tickets etc,
Primary 7 will use this to order year books and for their end of year night out.
Trip to Stirling Castle
To begin our topic on World War 1, we had a trip to Stirling Castle to take part in a workshop. We learned about trench warfare and life for the soldiers. We looked at different artefacts and had fun working out what some of them were used for.
Well done to the netball team who took part in a league/tournament against local schools (Drymen, Balfron, Killearn and Kippen. The children played extremely well and finished in first place.
Grow £5 enterprise project
Primary 7 have been working in teams to raise money for charity. They came up with ideas, worked on budgeting and set up stalls in schools. Their products included mothers' day gifts, bath products, movie night treats, home baking, home made toys and fidget toys. They have also been selling their products in the local community. Some of the charities they hope to donate to are WWF, helping victims of the earthquake in Turkey and sick children's hospital in Glasgow.
Visit to new library
We had our first visit to the new library as a class. We enjoyed a tour of the new building and hanging out reading the new books we borrowed.
