Weekly Certificates

Congratulations to our amazing certificate winners this week. It is always great to see so many pupils being highly motivated in their learning and realising how making mistakes is part of the learning process.

Jammilicious in P7A

Just over a week ago, P7A ventured out to the allotment and harvested a selection of fruit and veg including tomatoes, potatoes, plums and broad beans.

Many of the children took some of the produce home and used them to make some delicious meals. One member of the class took a big bag of the plums home and made some very tasty plum jam with her Mum. It was a real treat this week to try some on pancakes. Yum!!

MSP’s for the Day

This week we transformed our classrooms into a Debating Chamber. We decided on issues (bills) that we would like to be discussed in Parliament, formed our own opinions and then held a debate. It was super to see so many confidently expressing their opinions and responding to others. Well done P7!

P7 Class Charters

Both classes have been discussing their rights using the articles from UNICEF’s Rights Respecting Schools. Each class created their own Class Charter displaying our rights and how will respect those rights throughout the year.

Certificate Winners

A huge congratulations to all our certificate winners this week. There were so many of you that we could hardly get you all in the picture.

Angles

Both classes began investigating angle this week in maths. We had lots of fun finding a range of angles in the playground and enjoyed practicing and sharing our ICT skills once back in the classroom to ‘mark up’ each angle.

Well done everyone on another successful week.

‘End of the Week’ Certificates

Primary 7 have had a fantastic first full week back at school. It has been great to see so many demonstrating the Carrick Knowe Growth Mindset superhero powers and following the school values.

Throughout the week the P7 teachers have been writing certificates to recognise these achievements. This will continue each week and a picture of those receiving a certificate will be posted on the P7 blog.

Congratulations to everyone who received a certificate this week. Who will it be next week?

This Week in P7A…

The weather has been glorious this week so we have taken as many opportunities as possible to get outside. Here are some of our highlights.

The children have also spent time this week making birthday cards for one another. The focus of the lesson was measuring, cutting and sticking (no drawing allowed). The class really enjoyed doing this and the results were impressive.

Welcome P7A!

Primary 7A have settled into their final year of primary school very well. The children have had a busy couple of days. They have shared some of their holiday highlights; they have begun their House and Sports captain campaigns and have begun reading our class novel ‘Wonder’. They have also enjoyed some time outdoors exploring the woods.

A really great start to the new school year. Well done P7A!

Ms Anderson 🙂

Welcome P7B!

Mr Brewer here! It’s been a great start to the new school year. The pupils have hit the ground running; we’ve already started planning our campaigns for the upcoming House and Sports Captain elections and have talked about all the things we’re looking forward to in our final year at Carrick Knowe.

I’ve really enjoyed getting to know everyone and I’ve been so impressed with the pupils’ enthusiasm so far.

Here’s to a fantastic year ahead!

Enjoy your weekend,

Mr Brewer
