  • Week beginning 13th December: newspaper articles!

    Published 17/12/21, by James Blattman

    Primary 7 have created their own newspaper articles using their class novel Tribes!

    We first discussed the features of a newspaper, then drafted our own article using success criteria.

    We then reviewed feedback given and applied this to our redrafted final version on our iPads, using formatting tools to create a headline, columns and a picture with caption. 

    A very professional job by some aspiring journalists! 🌟 📰

  • Week beginning 25th October - Emotion Poems!

    Published 29/10/21, by James Blattman

    P7B have been using the film 'Inside Out!' as a stimulus to write their own poems about emotions.

    We discussed the five character emotions - Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Anger and Fear - and considered how they had been portrayed. Then we thought about how we can use imagery such as similes and metaphors to help describe these for a reader.

    P7 then created some amazing poems which were redrafted using their school iPads. As part of this, we learned about line formatting, highlighting and colouring text, plus adding pictures to a Word document.

    The poems are now on display in school - have a look at three outstanding examples below. We hope you enjoy!🤩

  • Week beginning 13th September 2021

    Over the last few weeks we have been learning about buoyancy. We researched what buoyancy meant and then tested a number of items to see if they were buoyant. 

    Using this knowledge we then designed and created our own boats, ensuring they were able to float. 

    We then tested them in water and even attached a mini-propeller, so we could race them.

    We tested all the boats, most stayed afloat luckily but not all moved very much in the water! Nieve and Josh won our class competition so went on to race P6/7E resulting in a draw. The final tiebreaker will take place at the beach later in the term!  

    Have a look at our pictures to see all the learning and fun happening…
