P7 Home Learning Grid w/c 18/01/21


Term 3 Wk 2 – w/c 18/01/21

Please click on the link below for this week’s grid of activities, to be completed by Friday 22nd January

To help you plan your week, here is an example of how it could look. We are not sharing this as the “right” way but it’s an example of how to lay the week out with three core activities a day and the optional practice activities clearly identified.

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!

If you are experiencing difficulties accessing any of the tasks, whether that is on Microsoft Teams, Seesaw or Sumdog, please get in touch with Mr Lynch or Mr Carson for assistance.

We hope you have a great week and please remember that we are here to support you in whatever way we can.

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

Primary 1 book bags

Just a wee reminder to have a daily peek in your child’s book bag when it comes home at the end of a day. Things to look out for are ORT word trees and word cards, letters about our upcoming trip and other events, P1s’ Scots Week poem and new sounds/tricky word flashcards that we have learned in our literacy lessons.

Please, also, give book bags a regular clear out and ensure that they only contain ORT/shared readers, sounds pockets and any correspondence that you wish class teachers to see, e.g notes about appointments etc.

Many thanks

Mrs Law, Mrs McConachie and Miss McLean

The First Blog of 2017!

23rd of January: We got our new CLIC maths groups and then we started to look at time in maths. Then we watched an educational living and growing video about how babies are made. Next the people who needed to recite their poem again got a chance to do so and the people that had already recited their poem self assessed it on the SC grid. Then we worked on our Egypt project on mummies and played handball in PE. YAY!
24th of January: On Tuesday we started off our day by writing a Scots language mingin recipe. After that we looked at all the different time zones in Europe. We learnt that there are 4 main different time zones in Europe. Then we had our Burns Poetry Semi-Finals competition. Ewan, Abbie and Bryce competed for our class and Abbie got through to the finals which is on Friday.

25th of January: We had our CLIC maths session and then we finished our European time zones work. We had an awesome break after that we played netball in P.E. and we were learning how to use useful tactics while working as a team. Finally, it was HOME TIME!

26th of January: Firstly, we looked at our OneDrive and our e-mails and found out how to work it. Then after break time we had art with Mrs Love and we were looking at watercolour and finishing off our Paul Klee inspired wax art. In the afternoon, firstly we started taking notes for our Chapter Two of our Egypt Project and we were looking at how we can make an interesting and engaging introduction to it.

27th of January: Firstly, we presented our non-fiction reading homework in pairs. Secondly we wrote Kyle’s Special Person comments. Then we went to the Burns supper in the gym hall and we had haggis, neeps and tatties. We heard the contestants say their poem for the Burns poetry Final and they were all really good.
