P7 Home Learning 11.01.21

Hi all and welcome back!

I know we said we’d share our grid on Monday mornings, but this is a sneak peek for next week! It’s taken Mr Carson and Mr Lynch a bit of time to get their heads back in to the home learning game, so this is a chance to have a look at the grid and consider what you will need to have organised for next week.

Remember that we are online to support you all day, and can be found on Teams, SeeSaw and email like before so don’t be confused or uncertain about what to do.

We’re looking forward to hearing from and seeing you all soon!

P7 January 2021 – some notes!

Happy New Year and welcome back to school!

It is with a little eye-roll and a tiny head shake that Mr Lynch and Mr Carson rejoin the pupils of P7C and P7L for this new term, but at least now we know the drill better than we did last time and can make the most of these few weeks of home learning!

We will be in touch through Teams to share learning grids as before, and would ask that you all get online and check your access to these resources as soon as you can to help us fix any problems.

IMPORTANT – Please remember that the email needed to access Teams should be the pupil’s Scottish Candidate Number (the usual 9 digits, starting with 150 for most…) but followed by

@ea.edin.sch.uk

NOT followed by

@schools.edin.org

as printed on the slips!

We are still planning some work to celebrate Scots’ Week and our Burns Celebration while refreshing our knowledge and understanding of themes and topics covered in P7.
We will begin looking at our World of Work topic too, an important part of the transition process between P7 and S1. Please make sure this is looked at and understood by the children.

As ever, please get in touch with any questions as early as you can, and we’ll see you all again veery soon!

Mr Carson & Mr Lynch

P7L – Meet the teacher

Dear Parents & Carers,

Please find attached a link to a virtual ‘Meet the Teacher’ video, where I share with you some of the key learning that will take place in P7L this year. I have also posted this to our P7L Seesaw which you should be able to access at home.

I look forward to meeting you when it is safe to do so but in the meantime, I’d like to wish you all a happy October holiday,

Kind regards,

Mr Lynch

STEM – Paper Challenges

Bitmoji Image

Welcome back to Queensferry Primary STEM Online.

This week there are three challenges to choose from across the whole school.

You can choose to try one, two or all three of these challenges. Choose from the height, length or distance challenge.

Use an A4 piece of paper to create something that fits the challenges in the videos.

I will post successful measurements at the bottom of this page and update it regularly. All of the video links are in the STEM classroom under the heading of Paper Challenges, just choose which one or ones you want to try. Remember you have to click on ‘present’ at the top, so the links work properly:

This is the link for the distance one if you choose to try that.

Good Luck

Mr B
