P7 Show Documents

Use the links below to download the letter to be completed and signed by ALL P7s (even if a pupil does not want to be in the show, we would like the form filled in to confirm and clarify this), and the rehearsal schedule. Please be aware that the schedule is very liable to change, especially as we get further through the term and evaluate our progress!

P7 Target Sheets

We have sent home the Target Sheets and Learning Statements for this term in P7. Please check with your child and use this sheet to have a conversation with them about what they will be learning between now and Easter, and what they want to include to make this ore personal.

We would like these to be returned on Monday so Mr Lynch and Mr Carson can discuss them with the children.

We have attached a copy of this in case yours goes astray. If you can share this information that would be appreciated!

P7 Robert Burns Home Learning Tasks.

Next week is Scots’ Week at QPS and P7 have a number of responsibilities as part of this.

In class we have already written wonderful examples of The Immortal Memory from notes we made using a variety of sources.

On Teams we have shared a Home Learning task for all pupils to undertake; writing a Toast to the Lassies or to the Laddies in reply.

Instructions are available online as a Teams assignment just now and we will send paper copies home on Friday 21st too. We expect these pieces of writing to be handed in on Tuesday so Mr Lynch and Mr Carson can choose our favourites to be recorded and shared as part of our Burns Celebration morning on Friday!

Please support us and your children with this work and get in touch if there are any questions.

P7 Practical Matters

Mr Lynch and I are having a great time so far this session, and we’d like to thank everyone in P7 for coming in to the new year with such good attitudes and so ready to work and learn!

Some practical matters to share and consider…

  • PE is currently on Wednesdays and it’s great that so many of the children arrive in their outdoor kit. A change of shoes is something which will be more important as the months go on and we head in to wetter weather.
    If the children arrive in school with wet shoes in the rain it is much nicer for them to have something dry to change in to rather than sit wet all morning. Please send alternative footwear with them for this purpose each day.
  • Water bottles – most children have one with them but please check in with your child whether they need a replacement in case it’s been lost or damaged; this can happen sometimes!
  • Snacks – a lot of pupils are trying to eat lunch for snack! Can you please clarify with them which item (one is enough) from their lunchbox should be their 10.45 snack!?
  • Home Learning – a small number of P7s are not managing to complete and return their home learning in time. Parents of children in P7 can even ask them to to the “counting off the days” thing I do to explain how long they have! If this becomes a habit we will have to communicate individually with you and find out what more we can do to support successful reading work this term

P7 Transition Notes

At Queensferry Primary School we are well aware that P7-S1 transition can be a challenging and anxious time for our pupils so we will continue to do everything we can, within current restrictions, to make this important time go as smoothly as possible.

The children have been working on their World of Work profiles which are shared with the high school teaching team and identify their skills and attitudes towards learning.

Next week we will have a virtual meeting between our classes and QCHS Depute Head Ms Gordon at which the children can hear more about the school and ask any questions.

There are weekly Sway newsletters available – the first two are themed around Being Brave and Changes
More to follow!

Please also remember that the high school website has a dedicated P7 Transition section here…> which contains more information and some FAQs.

Keep checking Seesaw daily for our updates and challenges, and continue sharing your posts of what you have been working on – we love seeing what you are getting up to!
