The Great War: A Unique Insight
This week P6/7 and P7 were treated to a fantastic presentation on Weapon Technology by former History Teacher, Colin Johnstone. Pupils listened attentively to the presentation, learning about what life was like for the men and women of WW1, before seeing and handling weaponry and kit that is over 100 years old. The pupils learned a great deal from this real and powerful display. The session has helped set the historical context for both class topics. Thank you Colin.
The Diary Of A Young Girl
This term we are reading The Diary Of A Young Girl by Anne Frank, which is one of the most important pieces of literature of the 20th Century. Please ask us what we think, and all the things we are learning.
First Aid Training
Thank you to the Parent Council who paid for us to have 2.5 hours of First Aid training with Mr Malcolm.
First Aid is a great life skill to have – it helps us be Responsible Citizens and Confident Individuals.
We had great fun at Hazlehead Wipeout
Keeping up with last year’s very successful Rotary Quiz team, we have started on the stairway to this years glory.
We hosted 8 other teams and we only went and won.
Our Class Reading
As a class we are currently reading Holes by Louis Sacher.
Holes is set in a very strange prison, and we are following the adventures of Stanley Yelnats, and some of his ancestors.
Stanley’s surname is his first name backwards. That is the least of Stanley’s problems.
Class Talks: Natural Disasters
Well done to all those who presented their work today as part of the end of topic homework challenge. The standard was very high!
Collaborative IDL Exhibition
Pupils from P7, P6/7 and P6 created exhibitions to share the learning from their respective class contexts. There was a wide variety of work on show as pupils reflected on their learning with each other. Whether the focus was Natural Disasters, Natural Wonders or Dynamic Earth, there was something for everyone to learn and take away. Well done to all involved!
Natural Disaster Expert Visits P7
Today, medical expert and emergency response team player, Chris Driver came in to talk with Primary 7 pupils about his work as a natural disaster medic. Pupils took the opportunity to ask lots of questions about his work, which ranges from dealing with hurricanes in the Caribbean to typhoons in Indonesia.
