Last week we visited the Academy for the first time. We took part in an expressive arts day. We took part in lots of different activities including; music, art, costume, design, drama and photography. We had a great time, below are some pictures from the day. Next week we will be going to the Academy again for a Rememberance Assembly. If any parents would like to come along please let Miss Notman know.
Over the past few weeks we have been really busy in class.
We have been working on extending and securing our knowledge and understanding of addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. We are getting very good at these now and are able to recognise the resources we can use to help us.
In literacy we have been working on our writing assessments and focusing on our new targets. As well as this we have worked hard on reading and joining and using cursive writing.
We have been doing lots of peer and self marking. Giving each other 2 stars and a wish to work on the next time. We are beginning to build on this and use others work as a tool to help us in our own learning.
As well as working hard we have had a big bake sale and a big book sale this week. Thank you and well done to all the adults and children who brought things in to sell. As well as all the children for helping out selling the cakes and books. From this we have managed to raise over £160. This will all go into the P7 leavers fund and we will continue to raise money throughout the year. The next event we will be hoping to raise some money at is the Friends of Langlee Halloween Disco!
Thank you again for all your support and a big well done to all the P7's!
HOPE EVERYONE ENJOYS THE HOLIDAYS!
This week we have been working hard in class. In maths we have moved onto working on multiplication and continue to work on mental maths. We understand that to improve our mental maths and multiplication skills we need to learn all of our times tables.
We have using our imaginations to write a story and used lots of wow words to describe the details. We continue to work on our cursive handwriting.
Our new topic is WW1 and we have been discussing what we already know and what we would like to learn about.
We have been busy preparing to start fundraising at the carnival this weekend and also for our new '30p Thursdays' starting next week.
Again we enjoyed taking part in Creativity Friday!
P7s did a super job helping in other classes this week. They helped the children and the teachers. They were all respectful and showed their best behaviour.
This week we have been doing lots of CREATIVE activities.
We have been planning and writing some creative stories, working on describing the SCENE and grabbing the readers ATTENTION.
Today was our first creativity Friday, everyone in the school took part. It was great fun! we took part in different activities like; dancing, cooking and gardening. We will continue to take part in this every friday morning.
In art we have created some pictures using paint, wool and pen. Mixing all three techniques together to create an effective eye catching piece. We chose the colours, trying to make our wool flowers stand out from the background.
Next week we have two events:
Tuesday 4th September 3.30-4.30 pm - Meet the teacher.
Come along and see/meet Miss Notman in the P7 classroom.
Saturady 8th September - Langlee Carnival
On saturday Miss Notman will be at the CARNIVAL selling sweets (donated by Abigail's mum) and some bits and bobs we have been making in the class.
It would be great if the children could come along and help.
All the money made will go into the p7 fund.
It's the first week back and it's been a busy one for our class. We have updated our class charter, remembering the rules and to respect each others right to learn, we have done some art work on drawing caricatures and MINDFULNESS colouring.
In maths we have been revising addition and COLUMN/chimney sums working large numbers and reminding OURSELVES of place value. We have been working on making sure our jotters are neatly presented and that we always use a ruler to draw lines.
We learnt how to correctly write in cursive handwriting the letters: i, l, t, c, a and d.
The main thing we have been working on is growth mindset and Fixed mindset. A Growth mindset means believing that you can learn and develop ABILITIES and knowledge through dedication and hard work.
it has BEEN a really positive start to the year! We have lots of exciting things coming up this year and we are very excited about it!
