P7 Art Competition
This month, Tom, Broom House Captain, launched his monthly art competition. This month’s focus, for the whole school was to design their own mask. I wanted to share some of P7’s brilliant work…
Wednesday 14th October:
The Hoodies Are Here!
I wanted to share a few photos of the long anticipated hoodies, which arrived today. P7B are really chuffed with them and will definitely come in handy ahead of a winter in the Annex.
Wednesday 30th September:
Outdoor Maths with 7B!
We are trying to spend lots of time outside at the moment, and it wasn’t any different for Maths Week Scotland. P7B were given lots of ideas for outdoor maths games and were tasked to set them up. Once they had found all the materials and learnt how it works everyone had the chance to play the other games, before the rain came on!
Monday 21st September:
Our New Captains!
Since returning to school, the P7s have hit the ground running with the house and sports captain elections! Once deciding whether they wanted to run for house or sports captains, the candidates came up with policies, delivered speeches and created posters to convince others to vote for them.
All the P7s put in so much work into this, and the results were extremely close, with most winners only winning by a few votes. Well done to everyone who took part! After a closely fought campaign, we have our new captains:
Monday 7th September:
Mr Brewer & Mr Morrison are busy organising the P7 Leavers Hoodies.
Last year, all the children either ordered a XS, S or M (adult) sized hoodie. We have shown the P7s these sizes to help them choose, unfortunately the sample sizes cannot be tried on, but are available to view in the school foyer for the next two weeks. We hope this helps you to make your decision.
Please note the colour of the samples is not correct, the actual hoodies will be more similar in colour to their current P7 sweatshirts. This is also a bulk order, therefore late orders and payments will not be possible.
If coming to view sizes, please respect the one way system alongside social distancing measures. Only one household should be in the entrance foyer at any one time.
Mrs Matear will very shortly be sending a letter (via Parent Pay) with further details on how to place your order.
Friday 4th September:
Class of 2021
P7B are settling in well to being back at school and in their new home in the annexe. The sun is shining and everyone is in school today, so we thought it would be a great opportunity for our start of year photo!
Stay tuned for more updated of our adventures. Have a brilliant weekend!
Tuesday 11th August:
First of all, I am so sorry that I won’t be there for the first wee while, but I hope you are all as excited as me to get back to school. It is important to remember that even though we are back at school, it won’t be exactly the same as before. If you have any questions about how school will work (ahead of starting on Wednesday/Thursday) your parents should be able to help by looking at the parent’s guide available back on the home page.
Even though I won’t be with you to begin with, I am so pleased that Mrs McMorris and Mrs Clark will be there to help you settle back in. They will help you to get started on your House and Sport’s Captain campaigns. Our first literacy project will be on the book ‘Wonder’ by R.J. Palacio – a favourite of mine.
P7 is a brilliant year with lots of exciting and rewarding opportunities. When I am back in school we will spend a bit of time going over usual expectations and lots of things for the year ahead. If you have any questions in the next week or so, Mrs McMorris/Mrs Clark will do their best to answer them or write them down for when I’m back.
It’s a new year and the beginning of your final year at Carrick Knowe. I’d like you to keep our school values at the front of your mind as you settle in…
kindness, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Our new classroom will be Annexe 4, and you come in the last door of the annexe. I have included some pictures of what our room looks like (I hope you like blue and yellow…).
See you very soon!
Thursday 25th June:
Welcome to P7B!
