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 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!

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
