Welcome to Primary 7
Here are a few reminders:
Healthy kids is on Thursday.
Swimming is on Friday.
Spelling Booklets are to be completed by Thursday.
Our World Around Us topic for this term is The Victorians. We would welcome any artefacts.
Todays lesson was about POSITIVITY. We were asked to think about someone who has been a positive influence on us. We then drew them and wrote words to describe them.
Book Fair Competition
Noemi won the Book Fair Colouring Competition.
All dressed up for Halloween!
Megan was in today. We are building up our self portraits. We played a game of human rock, paper, scissors as an icebreaker. It was fun. We then started our 'me river'. We had to think of events in our lives that made us happy and sad. We shared some of these with our classmates. We got to know each other better.
Farewell to Dima
Dima is moving to Germany. We will all miss him.
On Friday we made a memory box. We covered a shoe box with coloured card and plenty of decoration. We will keep special things in it to remind us of happy times.
We were voted onto the Eco council.
School Council Reps
We were voted onto the school council.
Megan was back in again this week. Our topic was bullying. We talked about respecting one another and not putting each other down by saying rude or negative things. We created a character and gave him/her a personality. We then tore it into bits and tried to put it back together but we couldn't. This showed us that the words that we speak are very important. They are good if they are kind but are never forgotten if they are unkind. We will not return to being the same person if someone hurts us with their nasty words.
We are studying Matilda by Roald Dahl as our class novel. We have made a wonderful display board about the characters. We investigated powerful adjectives to describe their personalities.
We were looking at life skills in class and with the Y.M.C.A. We learned about respect and trying our best.
We also looked at Pop Art and how a single word in a comic can say lots because of how it is written. Just look at our wonderful display.
Megan from the YMCA was in again. This session was on communication. We played games to show how important it is to actively listen and to use verbal and non-verbal communication skills properly.
Megan from the YMCA visited our class. We made a large spiders web out of string to show how we are all connected in some way. We also played a game of Human Bingo.
We all wrote Blogs for this new website. www.movingforward.me. Our topic for this month was "Establishing Good Attendance." Patricia, Oliver and Ignas had their blogs put onto the website. You can read them below.
Here we are learning about a Victorian wash day. It was really hard work! We also had to guess what the objects in the photographs were used for. It was good fun.
Our class performed the first assembly of the year on Friday. Our theme was new beginnings.
