WWII Family Evening

On the 6th of February the P7s will be hosting a WW2 event with hot food which will be corn beef hash and some shortbread as a dessert. The p7s haven’t stopped working since they came back from the Christmas holidays. They are still working for your entertainment on the night and behind the scenes. The class is looking forward to the evening and hope will enjoy it as well and maybe leave donations as P7 have put a lot of money towards it. There will be a short play and the rest of the night our fabulous and talented entertainment team will entertain you, along with some songs and personal family wartime stories. Tickets are limited because of space in the hall so only parents and siblings can attend, if there is some left maybe grandparents or any others could come along. We will only find out nearer the time.

 

We are looking for donations for our raffle for the evening. Please send them in when you can.

 

Yours sincerely,

Logan and the Promotions Team

Listen Well Scotland

This week P7 have participated in a 5 hour pilot workshop, split over two days, run by Listen Well Scotland. They have learnt about being active, reflective listeners and how to name and talk about their emotions and feelings. Ask us at home about something we learnt…and see if we can remember what the ‘rainbow’ signified.

Thank you to Maureen and Christine for coming in to work with us, we all learnt something about what it takes to be a good listener and how we can identify someone’s feelings/emotions through their body language (55%), their tone of voice (38%) and their actual words (7%). We all received a certificate and special wristband. Wearing this wristband is a very responsible role, as it signifies we are willing to listen and support those that need to talk.

STEM Week in P7

We were delighted to welcome April Conroy and her colleagues from the Science Skills Academy.  They brought Lego robots which we had to program to solve the challenges that were set.  Challenge 1 was to calculate the length of one rotation then apply this knowledge to a certain distance so as to not knock over the Lego figures at the end.  Challenge 2 was to mark out a course with masking tape then program the robots to complete the course.  It was a great activity and there was lots of maths dialogue going on – it was great to see.
