We have been learning all about Gymnastics in PE with Miss Donohue and Miss McGlaughlin. This week we have been practicing our forward rolls and working on different ways to travel using a hoopla-hoop! We partnered up and then did some demonstrations for the rest of the class. Take a look:
This week in maths we were learning how to create a business stall (enterprise) for fundraising for our own choice of charity. Miss Milne – (Lord Sugar) will be selecting a few groups to go forward and make their ideas a reality!
We are going to partner up with P7a and hopefully make some food items to sell around the school.
This week on Tuesday we completed a variety of gymnastics including; cartwheels, leaps over vaults, and different balances! On Thursday we had S6 helpers from Leith Academy! We didn’t have access to the hall so we played a selection of different running games outside in the playground; Run River and Tig. Our teachers on Thursday were Liam and Mr. Marco. On Tuesday we had Mrs. Mclaughlin!
This week in art we had a challenge of making a clay model of Robert Burns’ cottage. We had a block of clay and had to work against the clock to create our own masterpieces in one hour! This went really well and almost everyone completed the activity. When our models are dry we will paint them according to the photographs of Robert Burn’s cottage.
This week we completed the second part of our Tam O’Shanter story map. We had to draw pictures according to the story we listened to. Next we will be using our story maps to tell the story of Tam.
This week we had a visitor in school to teach us about area and perimeter but approaching it in a different way! Mr. Robinson gave us each a rope with the same length which we had to make into different shapes and calculate the area by using 10cm squares of paper. This proved that no matter the length of the perimeter the area will always be different! This was more fun than working in jotters!
Cross Country Trials!
The teams were selected and from p7b the people who got in were;
