House and Vice Captains will organise house events and competitions.
The yearbook committee will plan and organise the P7 yearbook.
Playground Squaddies will plan and organise playground games for the younger children.

All P7 children have been provided with a homework folder and homework diary. Homework will usually be given on a Monday and due for Friday. Please check your child’s homework diary. Homework will consist of spelling, maths and a literacy task.

Children in Need Day
Every class dressed in pyjamas and donated money towards Children in Need.
In class, we are doing a topic called 'History's Mysteries'. So far we have investigated the Bermuda Triangle and the Mary Celeste. We are also doing a personal project on our brand new P7 chromebooks. As part of our project we can choose any mystery from history. We are finding out what happened, we are researching the different evidence and theories, then we are choosing our own theory based on all of the evidence. We'll present our PowerPoints to the class later in the term.
P7 Art Display - Field of Poppies
We marked Remembrance Day in P7 with a 2 minute silence. In the afternoon, we spoke about the significance of poppies. Next, we created our own watercolour paintings of poppy fields. We had to consider different tones, shades and perspective. Our watercolour paintings are on display in the corridor and the classroom.

On Halloween, we all gathered in the playground and we danced around to music. We saw everyone's carved pumpkins on the daily mile track. Next, we had a catwalk to show off our costumes. We also did a house competition in the afternoon, called 'The Pumpkin Hunt'.

Non Fiction Books
Our class topic was about animals across the continents. We decided to make our own non-fiction animal books. We researched their day to day life, diet, predators and prey, intelligence and communication.

Term 1 - PE - Tennis
We have been working on our tennis skills. We are learning different shots such as backhand, forehand and smash. We have also been playing mini tournaments and rallies.
Term 1 - Animals across the Continents
We are learning about animals across the continents. We chose to do paintings of animals that were in danger or in their natural habitat. Some examples were: polar bears on cracking ice, penguins stranded on ice and koalas surrounded by bushfires.

Term 1 - Clay Models
We designed an animal themed product or accessory such as a stationery pot, a candle holder or a mobile phone holder. We then created our product using air-drying clay.
Term 1 - Holes
We are doing a class novel study on the book 'Holes'. We have been analysing the characters in the book. In this task, we had to use interesting words to describe the warden's character then find evidence and quotations from the book to back up our opinions.
Our Class Charter
We have been learning about the 'Rights of the Child'. We created our class charter based on our rights and our responsibilities.
Term 1 - Maths
In maths, we are learning about written and mental methods of long multiplication. We have been doing different activities such as Tarsia challenges. In a Tarsia, you need to find a question, work out the answer and then match the question to the correct answer to form a shape or a chain. Look at the examples below.
