During Numeracy Primary 7 used clixi to revise 3D shape nets and their properties.  They also investigated how many different nets there are for a cube.  They found 11 different nets.
In Literacy Primary 7 have been revising contractions.  They enjoyed playing a Contraction Scoot game.  
David from Action Mental Health came in to talk to Primary 7 about mental health and how important it is as well as physical health.  The children became familiar with the ‘Take 5 a day to keeping happy and healthy’.  The 5 steps are learn, be active, give, take notice and connect.  The photos show P7 having fun with David.  

Victorian Day

 

Primary 7 enjoyed participating in an educational workshop to explore more about life in Victorian times.  They were provided with the opportunity to dress like a Victorian, play games that were popular during Victorian times, write with a dip pen and ink, make a whirligig and take a Victorian Timeline quiz.  They also listened to and watched a PowerPoint presentation.  Primary 7 rounded off a very interesting and thoroughly enjoyable day by building a miniature film set ‘Down the mines’. Have a look at the photographs to see Primary 7 enjoying the interactive workshop.  

Today, Tuesday 16 October, is ‘Restart a Heart Day’.  Mark from the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service came to school today to provide some CPR training for Primary 7.  Mark discussed the importance of being able to perform CPR and modelled how to carry it out.  Primary 7 enjoyed the opportunity of performing CPR on Resusci Anne.

Circle designs

Primary 7 have been learning about the properties of a circle.  They now know the mathematical terms radius, diameter, centre and circumference.  Primary 7 also know how to calculate the radius of a circle when given the diameter and vice versa.  Primary 7 put their new mathematical knowledge to the test and used a compass to create some circle designs.  They thought using a compass was tricky initially but by the end of their work they had made good progress.

Synonym people

Primary 7 revised synonyms.  Then they made a synonym person.  Have a look at the photos to see Primary 7 busy at work.

Primary 7 invent their own toothpaste.

Primary 7 became like the Victorians on Friday and invented their own toothpaste.  They had a lot of fun!

Tessellations

 

Primary 7 have been learning about tessellations.  They used 2D shapes to make their own tessellating patterns.

Instructional writing

 

Primary 7 have been looking at instructional writing.  They have examined various samples of instructional writing and have become familiar with and analysed the features associated with it.  Primary 7 have studied lots of areas in grammar which will help them with their independent piece of instructional writing.  Primary 7 are going to write their instructions independently explaining how to play Ludo.  Before they write their own instructions modelled writing took place on how to play Snakes and Ladders.  The children have thoroughly enjoyed playing both Snakes and Ladders and Ludo to help them become familiar with the rules before they write their instructions.  

Mrs Wilson delivers Junior Moneywise programme to Primary 7
Mrs Wilson from Santander very kindly came into school to deliver the Junior Moneywise programme to Primary 7.  They learnt a lot about money.  How to save money, about good and bad PINs and passwords and also about identity theft.  Towards the end of the session Primary 7 were asked to design a poster displaying what they had learned during delivery of the programme.  Have a look at the photos below which show Primary 7 busy at work.  Mrs Wilson presented each child with a certificate and a pencil case with some stationery inside.  Thank you to Mrs Wilson for delivering such an interesting and informative session.  

Merry Christmas and thank you

 

I would like to this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and blessed 2019.  Many thanks also for the kind wishes, Christmas cards and gifts as well as the generous combined class gift. It is appreciated and I will enjoy spending it on a new pair of shoes at some point.  Many thanks once again Miss Galloway

World Book Day

Primary 7 was invaded today by a number of book characters.Have a look through the photos to see how many you know.

World Book Day activities
Today we completed several activities for World Book Day.  We took part in a speedy book recommendation where we described a book to our partner in 1 minute.  Our aim was to convince our partner to read the book.  We heard about many books during the speedy book recommendation activity.  Prior to World Book Day we each brought in a book from home that we had finished reading and swapped the book with someone else in our class. During an art lesson we did some paper folding and made some book corners and enjoyed adding some finishing details once they were made.  We really enjoyed going to Primary 1 and 2 and reading to the younger children in our school.  Throughout the day we also had to have good listening skills because when we heard the word DEAR we had to Drop Everything And Read! Towards the end of the day we completed a book review on our favourite book and we hope to display them.  Keep checking our class page over the next few weeks to have a look at our class display.

Marvellous Maths Day

 

Primary 7 enjoyed Marvellous Maths Day today.  Everyone looked really well wearing something with a number on it.  We started off the day by going to the assembly hall to sing a Maths song.  After returning to the classroom Primary 7 then took part in a carousel of Numeracy activities including Fraction Frenzy, European Primes, building pictures with shapes in them using sticks and marking on properties using cubes such as angles and parallel lines, a standing long jump, pursuit curves and using a target to see who could score the highest total.  The favourite activity for a lot of Primary 7 children was getting to help Primary 1 and Primary 2 on their Maths trail.  Using the iPads Primary 7 also competed against each other in their groups when completing Maths Live on Mathletics.  We had a very busy day filled with lots of Numeracy.
