Happy to Learn

P7 Ms Eakin

Welcome to the P7 Page

P7 pupils are delighted to be back at school after a five months break. They are enjoying spending time with their friends and have made a fantastic start to their P7 year. They are all working extremely hard to prepare for either their Transfer Tests in January or Maths and English for end of Key Stage 2 testing.

They are loving all the roles and responsibilities which they have been given. Check out the photos below to see what they are all doing.

We have House Captains and Vice House Captains for our four School Houses; extremely hard working Recyclers; dedicated librarians who are doing a fantastic job under the guidance of Mrs Gibson; a terrific Tech Team who assist the younger pupils with their computer skills in the IT suite.

P7 Victorian School Day

P7 enjoyed a wonderful learning experience as part of their World Around Us topic on Victorians. They travelled back in time to the year 1847. They dressed in Victorian clothes and brought their lunch in baskets or brown paper as no plastics were allowed. The lessons consisted of the Three Rs, using materials such as ink pens, chalkboards, an abacus and even a potato! Of course the cane and Dunce's Cap made an appearance!

P7 comments:

Chloe B: " I had a very fun day and thanks to Ms Eakin for making this happen."

James: " When I got to school and saw everybody's clothes I was amazed."

Leon:  "We sang the National Anthem but only a few people knew the words so Ms Eakin was doing a solo."

Jamie: " I liked the story in our Reading lesson, True Duncan, because it taught us the value of telling the truth."
