It’s Electrifying!!!

As part of our science work on energy, we got the chance to take a look at an electric car – courtesy of Neil (AKA Mr Mac) who brought his car into the playground.

We got the chance to explore all the features of the car and Neil was able to tell us all about the differences between a petrol/diesel car and an electric one.

We then went back to the classroom where we found out lots more including the amounts of energy electric cars need and how they can be charged.

Finally, he went on to explain how Mrs Mac WILL NOT let him buy a Tesla. So harsh!

 


Thank You From Team P7!

We would just like to thank everyone who gave a little money on Friday 29th September in order to support our fundraising efforts for Macmillan Cancer Support. We spent the whole of Monday counting the coins and we raised a massive £395.60.

It took a fair bit of planning, a whole lot of budgeting and some incredibly messy baking but we did it and you can check out some of the pictures below to see how we got on!

Step 1) Find a recipe…
‘Borrow’ some money off Mrs Matear and Mr Hunter…
Create posters…

Step 2) Buy the ingredients…
And play rugby…

 (because we can’t have 47 people in the shop at the same time!)

Step 3) Get Baking…
And wash up our dishes!

Step 4) And finally – get selling and count the coins!


And The Winners Are…

The House and Sports Captains voting has been carried out…
Votes counted and verified…
And the winners are (you’ll need to do your own drumroll)…


Meeting Our Buddies!

It was an exciting time for P7 as they got to meet their P1 buddies for the first time!

Here are just some of the things we were doing:
Reading stories… Drawing pictures… Playing with sand… Watching Alphablocks… Going outside… Playing in the house corner and… Collecting lunches!

We’ll be doing lots more things with our buddies over the next year and cannot wait!


P7 Elections!

Our awesome Primary 7s have been hard at work over the past week putting together campaigns in order to have them elected as House and Sports Captains.

This week they put their speeches to their fellow housemates and everybody from Primary 3 to Primary 7 got to vote for the people who best represented them.

Here we are working on our policies and campaigns…

Here’s the posters that you may have seen EVERYWHERE in the school!

And here is democracy in action!
